Meyerland is adjacent to Bellaire and outside the 610 loop, but inside the Beltway. Meyerland was greatly affected by  Hurricane Harvey and other infamous flooding events, but this amazing community has banded together each time to rebuild. The love that the community has for its members is one of the reasons why it is the heart of Houston.

Meyerland has many great neighborhoods to consider, like, Marilyn Estates, Westbury, and many more! is a great place to start to find out more about these neighborhoods and to find a house.

Why Moms Love it

Meyerland is a very special area in Houston that moms just love. Families are flocking to Meyerland for the beautiful residential neighborhoods and amazing sense of community. Bellaire and Meyerland are in the heart of the Jewish community, with Houston’s Jewish Community Center, Congregation Beth Israel, Congregation Beth Yeshurun, and several smaller synagogues in the area.

Childcare and Schools

We know finding great child care and schools is a daunting task.  There are hundreds of great day care options in this area, but finding the right one for your family takes work. For grades K-12, the area is zoned to HISD and parents should research carefully how to navigate the HISD schools. There are also many charter schools across Houston, like YES Prep and Harmony Schools.

Perfect Date Night/Staycation

Mommy breaks like date nights, an occasional brunch, and staycations are an important part of self care.
