Everything is bigger in Texas! Whether it’s trucks or cowboy hats, Texans love to make an impression. If you’re the type who likes to live large, you will enjoy basking in some of these amazing pools! Just keep in mind, the bigger the pool, the bigger the price tag. Thankfully no matter how expensive these homes may be, we can all still take a peek at some of the most extravagant Houston pools:

1.

This beautiful Houston pool is a lagoon-style pool with an attached hot tub.  Premium rock decking surrounds the pool and this waterholes’s most impressive feature is a tiered-rock waterfall. Located in the Houston suburb of Baytown, this backyard is sure to attract a crowd for some pretty impressive barbecues!

No need to fly to Hawaii for a little rest and relaxation when you have a paradise oasis right in your backyard! You actually feel like you’re soaking in the salty air of the Pacific with this U-shaped, hotel-style pool as you admire the abundance of palm trees that circle the property. This pool also features a detached hot tub with its own granite deck. This backyard is sure to make you the envy of all your neighbors.

This pristine backyard is sure to brighten your weekend with a pool that’s just the right length to get some laps in. However, if you’re in the mood to relax you can always just cool off under those chic above-water jets!

One word: WOW. This indoor pool is lit by three chandeliers hanging from a full ceiling skylight. In all honesty, this looks more like a museum than a pool and I’d be scared to touch anything! Judging by the poolside dining table, balcony and the marble pool deck, this indoor swimming pool was meant for elegant gatherings, not wild pool parties!

Nestled next to Carlton Woods in The Woodlands, is a yard that straddles the boundary between nature wilderness and luxury modern living. There is one large pool for exercise and another shallow pool to simply relax and take in a beautiful Texas summer day. The property also connects to the Nicklaus Signature golf course for whenever you get tired of the pool, but if you’re like us, that will never happen.

Hidden on the edge of Bayou Woods in Houston is this modern home complete with a backyard fit for a day spa. What this pool lacks in size, the home owner makes up for with a detached hot tub and connected kiddie pool. I envy the swim instructor that would get to give private swimming lessons at this house!

This might be the most luxurious home in Texas. This large pool has a custom design with plenty of room to comfortably fit the whole the family… and extended family. When you’re done in the water, you don’t have to dry off next to a regular bonfire, no, you have a full-on outdoor fireplace.

If you’ve ever wonder what a $150,000 private lazy river pool looks like, well here it is. This exquisite pool has a slide, attached waterfall and two bridges that connect to the island hot tub. No detail was spared with this backyard paradise!

This state-of-the-art pool mixed with the backyard’s ambiance is absolutely gorgeous! However, what truly makes this pool stand out is its massive size that almost qualifies as a small lake! There is also frontage to a river at the back of the property if you’re missing nature.

This Robert Dame Estate has a pool that makes you want to break out the limbo bar and grab something refreshing from the tiki-bar! It features an attached kiddie pool and a hot tub hidden behind the cascading waterfall. With a pool like this, your home could easily be mistaken for a Cancun world-class resort. The Texans have one thing right: Bigger is definitely better!
