Looking for a fun spot for your next group retreat or family get-together? Look no further than this massive Texan home, just steps away from warm gulf waters and Galveston Island's sandy beaches! Accommodations for small dogs and easy access to nearby sights and sounds make this house the complete package.

This home might be 16 miles southwest of the hustle and bustle of Galveston itself, but you're hardly isolated from quintessential experiences of the area. The sea is just across the street from your home, which lets you admire the waves from afar thanks to a shaded patio and two spacious decks - one on the second floor, and one just above accessible by outside stairs.

A home for 14 guests will always feel vibrant and full of life, and the decor is set to match, with bright colors, shelves of books and decorations, and windows to let in natural light as well as provide every room with a view of the beach.

Breathing in fresh ocean air from the comfortable deck furniture outside makes for a lovely way to spend an afternoon, but you shouldn't forget to kick back and relax in the family room. Between the sofas, armchairs, and seats at the dining room table and breakfast bar you'll have room for everyone. Gather together and watch a favorite show on the flatscreen cable TV, mounted just above the decorative fireplace. A DVD player, along with an included DVD library, make cozy movie marathons in easier than ever!

When you're done taking it easy in the living room, step out onto the second-floor deck and take in some fresh air. Don't wait too long, though - there's cooking to be done! Feeding more than a dozen guests can be challenging, but thanks to the full selection of appliances of the nearby kitchen, you have all the tools you need. Serve up some appetizers on the shining granite counters of the breakfast bar for four before heading to the indoor and outdoor tables to enjoy the main course.

Leave the dirty dishes for the dishwasher and get ready for bed! A whopping 14 guests can use this home's four bedrooms - and living room sleeper sofa - at once. There's even room for two dogs under 25 pounds, for a small nightly fee! You'll have your choice of two master suites, one on each floor - both have king-size beds, ocean views, and easy access to the deck. The third bedroom has two queen-size beds and a full-size rollaway, with two twin-size beds in the final bedroom perfect for the kids.

With three full bathrooms and a half-bath for freshening up, you won't have to worry about lines in the morning. Two of the bathrooms are en suite with the master bedrooms, featuring a standalone shower on the first level and a shower/tub combo on the second level. Take your pick and wake up with a nice, soothing shower before starting a load of laundry in the private washer/dryer. While you wait for your clothes, you can take in a morning breeze on one of the decks and use the WiFi to plan a full day for your group!

A mere 16-mile drive separates your Indian Beach home from downtown Galveston, with a plethora of activities between the two destinations. Galveston State Park has fishing and beachcombing to try, while the Jamaica Beach neighborhood has gorgeous canals to admire. Don't get so caught up along the way that you neglect Galveston itself - from a wide variety of shopping and dining to family-friendly amusement parks like Moody Gardens and Schlitterbahn, the possibilities are limitless!

    This was a bit further from the strand of Galveston on Jamaica Beach which as great for us because the beach was not crowded AT ALL! It was just a few steps from the beach. The house is beautiful and over all we were pretty happy!

    Just down the road from Galveston Island State Park. We had great, warm weather for our December beach weekend. Ocean views from the porch were great at breakfast time. We enjoyed several hours on the beach and Our daughter played with her puppy in the waves and chased seagulls together - great fun. Felt very private and relaxing.
