About the property

Located at the tip of Edisto Island, this 5 bedroom, 6 bathroom house is the perfect vacation home for family gatherings, team building retreats, weddings and even an intimate get away. The spacious, multi-level floor plan sleeps 16 comfortably and offers beautiful views of the ocean. A wall of glass doors and windows line the second story main living and dining area, giving way to endless ocean view, even a rainy day can't spoil the splendor! The large kitchen is attractive and functional for entertaining; a professional-size refrigerator and dual ovens makes preparing meals for a crowd easy. The dining area seats 16 comfortably at either the large dining room table and/or neighboring granite countertop bar. And nothing beats the amazing 1950s style bubbling jukebox with 100 CDs available for the entire family's enjoyment.

An extra capacity front-loading washer and dryer is available in the adjacent laundry room, where there is added counter space and bar there as well. Just off the large living area, the beautiful master suite has additional views of the beach and access to the porch, a king-size bed, a second 40' television, and a beautiful master bath with a large jacuzzi tub and separate walk in shower along with his and hers sinks. Downstairs are four additional spacious bedrooms with private bathrooms. Centrally located is an additional living area with a 52' TV - perfect space for popcorn and a movie! Enjoy the top screened in deck complete with luxurious new patio furniture, outdoor dining table and swinging twin bed. On the bottom floor is an award winning outdoor garden. There is also a outdoor fire pit, both a gas and electric grill and cigar area for your enjoyment. There are bicycles and children's toy/carts. Let's not forget the beach chairs/ beach wagons and umbrellas available and ready for the beach. With a large family of our own, we tried to provide everything we always wanted when we stayed at the beach.

About Lyvonn Reese

If you ask Darrell and Lyvonn why they purchased this beautiful home, both would tell you 'to make memories.' With a love for traveling and specifically the beach, they knew they wanted a second home to make memories for their family and other families alike. They are from Nashville, Tennessee and have 4 children, 2 daughter-in-laws, 1 son-in-law, and a sweet mixed lab, Darby!

Lyvonn Reese purchased this house in 2014

Why Lyvonn Reese chose Charleston Area

This property spoke to us the very first time we walked in. It is spacious enough for a large family, yet still feels very comfortable. The view from the large screened porch is amazing. The scean view from the top screened in deck and the sounds of the waves made up our mind.

What makes this house unique

75 steps to the beach. 1 block from Edistos oldest Bar and Grill-Whaleys

Each bedroom has its own private bath. The parking is convenient and ample for all guests.

Incredible property with great views

  • 5 of 5

After staying in homes in Edisto for many years with our family, we can say that Big Kahuna is the best of the best! Great views of the water and the huge house allows everyone to spread out and enjoy the beach in their own way.

The owners have thought of everything you could need to enjoy your stay.

Bikes (including a new tandem): check

Beach wagon to haul stuff: check

Tons of towels and extra toiletries: check

Extra sunscreen and bugspray: check

Games, nice TV's, DVD players: check, check and check

Fully stocked wine bar: check

One block from Lions Club bingo: check

That's right, just bring yourself and your clothes and you'll have everything you need to enjoy all that Edisto has to offer! We will definitely be staying again. And if you have a large group there is no better house on the island to stay!

Awesome in Edisto Beach, SC

  • 5 of 5

This property is, without a doubt, the best house on Edisto Beach, and I have been spending time at Edisto since I was a child. The owners and their housekeeper made us feel like we were at a 10 (yes 10) star resort.The house is spacious and accommodated our large family beautifully. We loved gathering on the second floor screened porch late every afternoon where we enjoyed snacks and listened to the 5 young children recount their day at the beach. Beach access is excellent, even better than some beach front homes we have rented. I could go on, but this should ice the cake--we are returning to this home in 2018.

House was perfect!

We all loved Edisto Island and the house was fabulous. Lots of space and beds, so everyone was comfortable. We loved Edisto for it's lack of commercialism!

Absolute perfection!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect house! We had 3 families including 6 parents and 8 kids ranging from 1-7 and there was ample room for all of us to sprawl out. The rooms are all incredibly spacious and we actually had many more beds than we even needed! The jukebox was a huge hit...sorry to the neighbors who heard Rocky Top on repeat! The kids were so excited to be staying in a fellow UT fan's home! The proximity to the beach is hard to beat...literally just a few steps. Such an easy walk! And the view...the pictures cannot do it justice. You can see a panoramic view of the ocean from most rooms in the house. I found myself in the kitchen packing lunches or making dinner and would just happen to look up and be blown away by the view all over again! After the kids went to bed each night, the adults utilized the top screened in porch for many hours just playing games, chatting, and listening to the ocean. Lyvonn was such a sweetheart and so easy to work with. We hope to stay here again and again!

Was perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Was perfect. Had a big family gathering. Host was responsive to all inquiries but did a good job of limiting how many questions I had because she prepares such a great guidebook for the house. Also, plenty of towels, beach chairs, and other Edisto friendly items to limit # of "one off purchases" necessary.
