About the property

Big Kahuna on Edisto

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 counter-top bar. And nothing beats the amazing 1950s style bubbling jukebox with 100 CDs available for the entire family's enjoyment (currently under maintenance).

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.

I and my family were pleasantly surprised and pleased with our entire experience. Nothing was lacking. We had everything we needed and then some. I would highly recommend the Big Kahuna. I hope that at some time in the future we will be able to stay there again.

Relaxing luxury retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family (4 families) stayed here the week of Thanksgiving 2017 and absolutely loved it. Plenty of room to spread out. Spacious and well stocked kitchen, loved the outside fire pit (chairs need some updating), and the best location on Edisto. Very quiet end, beautiful views, close to shops and easy bike ride all over the island. We could sit out on the porches all day long from sunrise to sunset (can easily see both from top porch) and enjoyed a few meals on the top porch as well. Loved the books, movies, and games to choose from plus the well stocked storage room downstairs. Lots of bikes, beach toys, chairs, and even pots and burners to have your own low country boil (which we did and it was yummy!) We had a few minor issues and the owner quickly sent out a maintenance guy who took care of everything and was very friendly. It's the little things in life that make us happy sometimes and one of the biggest was not having to take jugs to the fire department for fresh water, this house has their own reverse osmosis system and the water tasted great. Would definitely stay here again.

Fabulous Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 adults and 3 children loved this beach house so much. It is a very short walk to the beach and it had everything we needed. Plenty of space (and beautifully decorated), a fully stocked kitchen, bikes, beach cart, etc. We are looking forward to staying here again in the future! Thanks to the Reeses for creating such an amazing getaway spot!

Perfect property for our stay. Everything we needed for our group and would work for any other group

  • 5 of 5

We needed a property for our extended family as we were attending our son's destination wedding on Edisto Island. This lovely home had all we needed for the stay. We were walking distance to the rehearsal dinner , great restaurants and right across from the beach. We hosted 30 people for a casual dinner one night, and everything we could possibly want was provided. The house was big enough to provide space for all of us. It's well laid out and very comfortable. Lyvonn, the owner, was extremely responsive by phone before we arrived to assure us of a great visit. I can envision coming back anytime for a terrific vacation. One is frequently concerned that a rental will not be as advertised. Here everything was perfect. Thank you for making our stay an integral part of a magical week!

Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 5 couples could not have been more delighted with this home! Spacious, comfortable, kitchen very well equipped for all our meals. Great gathering spaces- porches, dining room and living room. Beautiful view of the ocean across the street from the upstairs porch. Each bedroom had its own full bath, which was a plus. It was clean and well cared for. Lyvonn was was very helpful and accommodating to our schedule needs. I can enthusiastically endorse this vacation home to anyone! We had a lovely time! -A bonus is the shorth walk to Whalely's seafood reataurant. Delicious award winng food in a very casual setting. :)

About The Owner

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!

The Owner purchased this house in 2014

Why The Owner chose Edisto Beach

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
