This is an awesome place, older cabins close to town and the water. The people here are great, but then fisher people usually are. Captiva Island is spendy, but well worth it, and these cabins are reasonable priced, clean and cute.

Low key, old cottages that offer nothing but great fishing, easy beach access, birdwatching, boating, and a great deal of laughter. These cottages are spotless. The enclave could be considered the last hold out of a simpler life on Captiva, BC - before causeway. Picnic tables, BBQ grills, spectacular sunrises on over bay make this a wonderful place for people... More

Jensen's offers Old Florida ambiance and wonderful casual service that is hard to find these days. The Marina Cottages are basic but perfect for a getaway. Even if you are not staying there, stop by the waterfront office/bait shop/store to get a feel for what Captiva and Florida was like before the developers took over.... If you do, I would... More

To celebrate our wedding anniversary, my wife and I just completed a 4 day stay at Jensen's Twin Palm Cottages. Living in Ft Myers, we enjoy finding local establishments that offer a true Old Florida experience. Starting with our warm welcome from John and Jimmy and ending with a gracious farewell from brother Dave, the Jensens' hospitality highlighted a wonderful... More

Jensens is not for folks who want a resort with fancy drinks and white fluffy robes. This is for the laid back, chilled and easy going. AND ITS AWESOME ! As are the owners who assisted me with a smile each time. The room was spotless. Furnished with the necessities of being on the beach. The kitchen was perfect and... More

Just returned from a long girls only weekend on beautiful Captiva Island. We were 10 women from 26 to 58 celebrating my daughters soon to be wedding. Although I have vacationed many times on Captiva, this was a first, but definitely not last stay at Jensen's. The cottages are well maintained, clean,very comfortable and cozy. The "resort" is a living... More

This is old Florida at it's best with all the amenities including free WiFi. This resort, part on Pine Island Sound and part on the Gulf of Mexico, has been owned and operated by the same family since the 1970s. If you are looking for laid back cool without the BS of a corporate run place this is where you... More

We've been coming to Jensen's Marina for years, and it's always like stepping back in time. It actually feels like a Northern Minnesota resort with banging screen doors, water right outside your door and crusty fishermen. Rooms are immaculate, furnishings are comfortable and well-loved. Kitchens are equipped with the necessities. Some rooms have less-desirable views out of side or main... More

Let me just start by saying that I was pleasantly surprised. I made the reservation on the phone and spike with Dave...sweet man...within a few days I got my confirmation, receipt and a brochure in the mail. When we looked at the brochure we thought...hmmm?

What can I say about Jensen's Twin Palms that hasn't already been said??!!...It is my favorite place to vacation, and an absolute gem in the vast sea of "cookie cutter" resorts that promise true relaxation but never quite hit the mark....And, none of them have the Jensen brothers, three of the nicest, coolest guys you will ever meet!!!..THEY make it...
