With so many wonderful places to stay for your Galveston Island, Texas, vacation, choosing the perfect rental for a family retreat or other large gathering can be a challenge. But it doesn’t have to be when you book your vacation at a Ryson Vacation Rentals large home.

Let’s say you are planning a family reunion for a group of around 20 people, and everyone wants to stay in the same Galveston, TX vacation rental. There are several features to consider when choosing the perfect large home. Does the rental offer comfortable sleeping for everyone? Is there a dining space large enough to accommodate the whole crew at once? Does the home offer family-friendly entertainment options to keep everyone amused when they’re not at the beach?

Livin’ the Dream is an ideal private vacation home to consider for groups of up to 22. Located in popular Jamaica Beach and with more than 400 feet of water frontage, this home offers seven bedrooms, six bathrooms, two kitchens, a private swimming pool with a huge palapa, a tiki hut, covered decks, a hot tub, twin docks with a kayak launch, and an outdoor natural gas grill. 

When you choose Livin’ the Dream for your dream vacation, you and your family will experience resort-style tranquility inside and out. Sit under a palapa and unwind in colorful Adirondack chair while watching the kids swim in the on-site pool. Relax in a hot tub as you gaze out over the beautiful, open canal. Descend the swim ladder on the canal dock for a dip in the water. Use the light from the firepits at each end of the pool to swim at night. Then, let the kids make s’mores before heading to bed. 

If you like to fish or explore your surroundings, Livin’ the Dream comes with two single kayaks, a double kayak and two paddle boards for you to use during your stay. Several pool toys/floats are also provided for your enjoyment. When vacationing at Livin’ the Dream, hang out with family and friends in the outdoor kitchen with a hotel-style icemaker and a bar with a large flat-screen TV as you enjoy spectacular water views and breezes from the canal. 

Inside, you will find luxurious furnishings, including a well-appointed open kitchen with a large island and living and dining areas with water views. The living area is equipped with multiple sofas and ample seating for everyone to relax in front of the large flat-screen TV or to play a tabletop arcade game with 60 classic games like Pac-Man and Galaga. Dine at the table for 22 for indoor meals or step out onto the balcony for alfresco dining. For a large group or family reunion, Livin’ the Dream is a dream come true. 

More Jamaica Beach Vacation Homes for Large Groups

Jamaica Beach is a city inside a city and offers the best of all worlds—beachfront and bayfront homes and everything in between: beachside, canal front and dry lots. Jamaica Beach is far enough out to be away from the hustle and bustle of the Seawall area (eight miles) but not too far away from most of the popular island attractions (10 miles from 61st Street). 

Jamaica Beach is also one of the most sought-after beaches and neighborhoods when it comes to vacation rentals on Galveston Island. What it lacks in size, it makes up for in action during the summer months, holidays and event weekends. Jamaica Beach borders the west side of the Galveston Island State Park, which is 1,921 acres and spans the width of Galveston Island with four distinct ecological zones: salt marsh, coastal prairie, sand dunes, maritime wetlands and sandy beach. 

Ryson Vacation Rentals offers numerous Jamaica Beach homes with five or more bedrooms that are perfect for large families. For example, the The Good Life accommodates up to 20 people and offers an assortment of exciting amenities: a private pool, a gated yard, paddleboards, a water mat, access to the canal for boating or fishing, and a giant flat-screen TV set over the pool. 

Nautical Splash is another excellent choice. This luxurious waterfront getaway sleeps up to 18 people and features large balconies, a sun deck, numerous outdoor picnic spots, a barbecue grill, a fire pit, and a private pool and hot tub. 

American Pride is another home with five or more bedrooms to consider when accommodating a large group. A casual home for up to 13 people, this five-bedroom, three-bath rental offers easy living. Just bring your suitcase and your flip-flops and leave the rest to us. For those who enjoy fishing, American Pride’s pier even comes with underwater fishing lights! 

With six bedrooms and two full baths, The Boat House is a pet-friendly canal-front home with a huge deck that extends out over the boat dock and slip. Other features of this home include two levels of decks, two of which are partially covered, an expansive sunning deck, and a boat dock and slip. 

But it doesn’t have to be a challenge at all. Choose Ryson Vacation Rentals as your accommodations provider and you’re guaranteed to find a private home that offers plenty of space and amenities to suit your entire crew.
