With so many of still reluctant to travel too far from home, and with many in Houston in the midst of spring break, it’s natural for minds turn to staycations. Not the kind that you book at a quaint Victorian in The Heights or a luxe suite at the Hotel Granducca.

Rather we are talking about a rather permanent staycation — in a home that is all about resort living without leaving the city. There are some homes for sale in Houston that could make any day seem like a vacation with resort worthy settings. Let’s take a look at some of Houston’s hottest home listings:

Behind the gates in this near-in Memorial neighborhood awaits 10,200 square foot residence that is a luxurious oasis in the Houston hubbub. The new construction home could be a dreamy full-time getaway, the ultimate stay home spot with enough resort-style amenities to discourage ever leaving. The vast heated swimming pool and spa serve as a backdrop for seamless indoor-outdoor living with al fresco amenities that include a fireplace, summer kitchen and a full sports court.

DeeDee Guggenheim Howes of Compass has the listing with the asking price coming in at $6,295,000.

Architect Scott Strasser designed this modern 5,000 square foot home that practically shouts “resort living.” Floor-to-ceiling glass walls open to create a sophisticated indoor-outdoor living space that recalls resorts in the Bahamas. And the spa-like primary bathroom is connected to a private open-air atrium and features a large soaking tub, walk-in shower and something you don’t ordinarily find in a resort, a fabulous closet. Additionally, the side yard features a living and dining area, turf lawn, a sleek modern pool and a summer kitchen.

Multiple entertaining spaces surround the pool at 607 Harvard Street in The Heights.

The double lot at this retreat in The Heights delivers on the feeling of leaving Houston behind and with walkability to all the neighborhood favorites such as Coltivare and Donovan Park, you’ll no longer feel like you’re in the city that worships the automobile. Speaking of cars, extras here include an electrical vehicle charging connection and a whole house generator. Nine stained glass windows and skylights add to the allure.

The  3,760 square feet home is listed for $2,157,000 with Ashley Day of Compass.
