If you haven’t heard, Texas is the place to be. On top of being the second most populous state, Texas is also home to many of the United States’ fastest growing cities. One explanation for this popularity is, of course, its size—Texas is the second largest state by area. However, this only explains why it’s able to comfortably hold so many people, and not why it’s attracting so many people.

Villas at Royal Oaks is proud to call South Texas home. We are located in Rockport-Fulton, a small, peaceful town often referred to as “The Charm of the Texas Coast”. As much as we would like to keep our home and the rest of South Texas a secret—so that it doesn’t become too overcrowded—our pride obligates us to share.


Here are just a few of the things homeowners love about South Texas.


Though most of Texas has seen a rise in the cost of living, in southern cities, like Rockport-Fulton, it is still below the national average. This coupled with affordable real estate makes South Texas the perfect place to build or buy a new home. If you’re looking for a vacation home or perfect place to retire in South Texas, this may be the perfect fit for you.

Great Food

Regardless of where you are in Texas, you’re not far from mouth-watering BBQ and scrumptious Tex-Mex cuisine. This is certainly true in South Texas, and as an added bonus we also get the option of fresh, succulent seafood because of our close proximity to the Gulf of Mexico.

Great Sports

Texas is a sports haven. With ten professional sports teams scattered throughout the state, residents love having plenty of opportunities to see their favorite team play on the big stage. And even if they don’t want to make the trip to the stadium, Texas is rich with sports fans, making it easy to find a great atmosphere to watch the game.    

Friendly People

Texans are known for being friendly people with a unique style of hospitality and politeness. Because of its affordability and quality housing options, Texas has become especially good for families, which has only improved its friendliness. The high density of families has fueled the establishment of good schools, shops, entertainment, and an all around family-friendly environment.

This is true of our home of Rockport-Fulton and especially true of our new gated community, The Villas at Royal Oaks. We push to create a safe, luxurious, family-friendly environment.

Warm Weather

With an average annual temperature of around 70 degrees, it may be an understatement to say it’s warm here in South Texas. In the summer, it gets beyond warm. It can be sweltering. However, if you’re looking to escape the cold and rarely—if ever—see snow, Texas is the place to go.

Luxury Home Communities

Okay, so maybe it’s a bit biased, but one of our favorite things about South Texas is the beautiful new home communities. We happen to be the proud owners of a gated waterfront community. Villas at Royal Oaks, located in Rockport-Fulton, is known for its windswept oak trees and beautiful views of the bay. Our community includes a private fishing pier, putting green, fire pit, and a central park with walking trails. And we are close to award-winning beaches and golf courses.

From Spanish architecture to the beauty of the Gulf Coast, South Texas is a charming place. Not only does it have beauty and great weather, but it’s also an affordable place full of friendly people, great food, and top-notch attractions, making it the perfect destination for people looking to build or buy a new home.
