We spent 2 glorious nights in their #1 on the beach. Could not have had a better stay. Room is small but everything you need and so close to the Gulf. Quiet, comfortable and the staff went out of their way to insure we got the most out of our stay. We will be back....and not just for their "big... More

Jensen's offers an incredible location, steps from the beach and a short walk to restaurants and shops. Your car can remain parked at Jensen's and you can enjoy all Captiva has to offer. Choose your beach chairs and umbrella and enjoy a fabulous day on the beach. Jensen's has various accommodation rentals available. We chose the Post Office and it... More

We have never been to Sanibel/Captiva Island before, but had heard wonderful RAVES about it. We were not disappointed at all. Everything we had hoped for was there. Quiet, peaceful, great beds, good service. We weren't bothered by any noise from traffic. The beach was pristine, shells everywhere - The only down side - I have to wait to go... More

Wow! What a great place. We drove buy Jensen's several times this past summer while staying on Captiva and decided to look them up when we returned for Spring Break. The great reviews convinced me to give it a try. I was not disappointed. You can not beat the proximity to the beach. Lovely staff, clean and comfortable lodging. There... More

Visited for three days in October 2014. We stayed in the "On the Beach" unit. Frankly, a bit small but we were there for the review and the beach access. The room was clean though there was no real storage area. We absolutely loved the screened in porch and the supper easy access to the beach. Location is great. We... More

Ground floor unit like cottages next door, has more of a palm and sand view as there is I slight rise between buildings and th beach. Upside is whole... More

Very nice room; clean & comfy. We were close to the beach & had a beautiful day to soak up some sun, enjoy the sunset & the dolphins. Then we grilled some fresh fish outside our room. There's also a free washer & dryer on site. It was sad to leave!

It was 3 days last year and 5 days this time in the Post Office Box. Check-in was once again smooth and friendly. Greg greeted us at the Box and I thanked him up front for our last visit and everybody dazzled us here again. The room had a few nice unexpected updates. The Box is perfect for a couple... More

We recently booked 5 nights at Jensen's and could not have been more pleased with our stay. I read every review on Trip Advisor before finally choosing to book it. The reviews are not exaggerated. They could not have been more friendly or helpful when explaining how things work and what is available for guests. We had 6 people in... More
