About Jan Henshaw
We both grew up in the Northeast, migrating to North Carolina in the late 1970's, in large part to get away from the long and dreary winters! We 'discovered' Kiawah in the early 80's and fell in love with the island and the surrounding area. After visits to many other islands along the Atlantic coast, we found none we liked as much as Kiawah. We bought our first Kiawah property in 1992 and our current villa in 2004. Kiawah has been our home away from home and we cherish the memories of our times there. It has been a wonderful place for exposing our daughter to the wonders of nature and to healthy, active vacationing as she has grown up and become an adult.

Why Jan Henshaw chose East Beach Village
Kiawah Island is simply a beautiful barrier island which has been very carefully developed to preserve that beauty. Low density development has been a hallmark of Kiawah from it's original conception to the current day. Preservation of natural habitat has insured that the island is rich with wildlife, much of which is visible to the casual observer. Kiawah's 10 mile beach has been rated a 'top ten' beach in North America by The Travel Channel. Thirty miles of well maintained hiking/biking trails make the entire island accessible to even the unskilled rider. The resort features five public golf courses including the very highly rated 'Ocean Course', a highly rated tennis facility, a five star hotel and spa, and a good assortment of restaurants at various price points. Whether one is seeking a naturalist experience or more civilized indulgences, Kiawah Island is a terrific vacation venue for people of all ages.
What makes this Villa unique
Location, location, location! Villa is situated close to the walking bridge over the lagoon, beyond which is the access boardwalk to the beach. This means a 4 minute walk to the beach, as well as a 4 minute walk to the family and children's pools and the Nature Center at the Night Heron Park pool complex. After time on the beach or at the pools, the closeness of the villa is greatly appreciated, especially if you are carrying gear, are pushing a stroller, or have a young child walking with you.

Been going for over 35 years and have wanted to stay on this lagoon.
Very close to beach and easy access to everything.
Only issues were some loud neighbors which isn't typical for Kiawah.
The brand new washer had issues so we had to have maintenance in and out a few times but the island was accommodating and did a load of wash for us when the issue started.
Owner was great through the whole rental process.
Quiet, Family Friendly
We had a wonderful stay at this villa in the Kiawah Island Golf Resort. The accommodations were perfect for our families and the amenities were a great fit. I highly recommend this property and we are considering returning next year.
This is our third year coming to Kiawah and by far the best yet! The villa was clean, beautifully decorated, and very convenient to both the pool and ocean.
Wonderful place to stay!
We loved staying here! Beautiful villa and fantastic location!
Really nice villa
Beautiful villa in a great location. Villa layout is especially well suited to extended families (grandparents, parents, 2 children). Well appointed and well equipped, the villa had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The views from the porch and dock are excellent for observing the wildlife in and around the lagoon. We'll be back!
Beautiful villa in a perfect location
This is a beautiful property located within a short walk of the beach and the Night Heron Park pools and Nature Center. With master suites on both floors and doors which close off each of the three bedrooms, it affords privacy for all guests. The layout of the villa makes it a great choice for extended families. The screened-in porch has a commanding view of the lagoon near its widest point, giving it a great view of the wildlife that inhabits and visits the lagoon. The dock is an added feature and a nice place for a morning coffee or a cocktail hour beverage. The villa is tastefully furnished and very well maintained and equipped. The owners are very accommodating and easy to work with. With full resort privileges, it is easy to take advantage of all that the resort has to offer its guests. Check-in and check-out are very easy, with the front desk located at East Beach center located a short distance from the villa.
