What a great place to spend time. Check-in at the marina was friendly and efficient; the housekeeper was apparently still at the property cleaning so we went there to get the key. She was also very friendly and did a great job of showing us our space as well as the features around the property. We stayed iin the PO... More

I booked this reservation primarily based on previous reviews of Jensen's. We were looking for an old fashion Florida experience and WE FOUND IT! Captiva Island is a special place but we were most impressed with the Jensen "Family" including the brothers and all their staff. Upon arrival to the marina to check in we were greeted by Jimmy. He... More

My husband & I stayed in the P.O.Sweet for 10 days in Feb. It was the cleanest place we have ever rented, and we loved almost everything about our stay! The only (slight) negative was the street noise, as this cottage is very close to busy Captiva Drive. Super friendly owners and staff!

We got the ground floor room. Very efficient and clean, but a little tight. Has a nice screened porch which is really right on the beach. For a night or two this place is great. If you were staying longer, it seems to me you would want a bit more leg room. But very clean--nice new stuff. Little frig. microwave,... More

We returned from Jensen's (Beach Nest) about a week ago, and were very impressed with the location, quality of the accommodations, beautiful views, and convenience. Perfect for a family (or a couple), with plenty of room to relax. Nice amenities in the house made our stay very comfortable - e.g., full kitchen, laundry, grill, screened in patio, etc. Extremely comfortable... More

Just had 5 nights following several weeks in Marco Island. Just what we needed total relaxation. We stayed in North Beach which was spotlessly clean, stunning views and everything one needs for a vacation on the beach. Minutes away from the ocean, beautiful sunsets watched from our balcony. Watched dolphins swimming in the sea early morning, saw manatees down at... More

right on the gulf-privacy with a price-wonderful people run it-if you are looking to relax this really is the place-captiva is laid back and beautiful-leave all your dress up clothes home-the island is made for shorts t-shirts and flip flops-jensens fits right in-we stayed at the beach house and it was wonderful-right on the beach-private and comfortable-wasn't the fanciest place...

We have been visiting Jensen's on the Gulf for 23 years. We like to stay in the beach side # 2 or 3 are our favorite units. They are perfect for family or just a couple and the view is outstanding. Complimentary beach chairs and gear is really nice. The discount on boat rental was also appreciated. We recommend a... More

Yes…that place you go to and never want to leave. My wife and I stayed for 3 short nights in the P.O. Box last week. I cannot say enough positive things about this special place on the Gulf and the staff. Check-in at the Marina was smooth and Greg was so helpful at the Gulf spot to settle us in.... More
