At Bright Idea, you can go kayaking straight from your backyard

Do you love the outdoors? Do you also love luxury beachfront living? The two don't have to be mutually exclusive. If you're looking for the best of both worlds, chances are you'll love Bright Idea — a four-bedroom villa with its own private beach on the electric blue waters of Chalk Sound. The 2,028-sq. foot home is aptly named with its clean and bright interior (white walls are always a good idea) and plenty of windows to let in all the natural light. And yes, there is ample outdoor living space with the home sitting on .82 of an acre — including that private stretch of beach.

Because the best kind of beach is one you have all to yourself

Plans for the day: Kayaking in the backyard

Bright Idea 6

The two master suites each have their own balcony overlooking Chalk Sound, while the other two guest suites flank the pool. And both are self-contained so guests have plenty of privacy. All four bedrooms, along with pretty much every area of the villa, come with unreal views of the water.

And the entire property looks unreal from the water, too
