South Pool_3

Whirring fans, swirling waters, beach days & more!

Of course, the easiest way to stay cool this summer is to head to the beach, where breezes blow the Texas heat away. Check our Best Bets for vacation rentals--great cottages, condos and homes that still have limited availability in July and August. Check Best Bets for Summer Rentals.

In the meantime, see our top six picks for ways to beat the heat and stay coastal cool.


No. 1. Infinity Pools

The South Pool at Cinnamon Shore South has been a hit since it opened, with views over the 7-acre lake between cabanas that rise on either side of cool waters. At Cinnamon Shore North, Keira's Pool offers a similar experience in waters that overlook Lake Gavin. Order frosty beverages from C Bar at North and C Bar Too at South, with friendly poolside service.

When you stay at Cinnamon Shore you have access to all the pools, including the Dune Pool and Stillwater Pool, with the new Family Pool opening in Fall 2023. Check Available Rentals.

Keep your cool with these protective fans installed on the sloping rooflines above bunk beds.

The firm also installs "Jaxon" model fans from Arranmore Lighting, another flush mount that works great in smaller rooms and on angled walls.
