Staying true to Vacation Home Week, we had to find a phenomenal property that would make a great spot to run to should you get the itch to get out of town.

“Here you’ll find a delicious tension between rural and refined,” writes Jeannie Ralston for The New York Times. “With the vineyards and boutique farms (lavender, olives), some people make comparisons to Napa Valley or even Provence (France). But those assessments ignore something fundamental: The Hill Country – being Texas at its finest – is like nowhere else in the world.”

I love Port Aransas and Rockport, but am just now getting to know Corpus Christi. Regardless, there are some amazing homes for sale on the Texas Gulf Coast and some of them are just amazing! The value of these homes is incredible, where you can get a house on the water in the neighborhood of $2 million!
