We recently stayed at Jensen's for a family gathering. Every moment of the weekend was wonderful. EVERYONE at Jensen's was so helpful..from reservations to special requests to housekeeping to boat rentals to check out! This resort will always be a top recommendation of ours! Thank you to the entire Jensen's family and staff!! Neil and Jill

Jensen's "On the Gulf" has so much to offer. The unit we stayed in is pleasantly situated on the beach with a screened in containing tables and chairs that we were able to eat at while enjoying the ocean view. The unit and it's surroundings are in excellent condition and well maintained. The kitchen is fully stocked with cooking and... More

We stayed 6 nights at the Post Office Box and it was perfect! The area is so nice and convenient to the beach and the bay. There is wildlife everywhere! This was a great place to unplug. The mini frig, microwave, and amenities were just right for our stay. We love the quiet non-commercial atmosphere. Jensen's is the best place... More

My wife and I stayed in the Post Office Sweet for 5 nights and could not have been happier! The location is perfect (on the island and in the resort). The room was clean and furnished well. Jensens provides chairs, umbrellas, and other assorted toys for the beach. We walked to Starbucks each morning and then over to the Jensens... More

We met three other couples in Captiva for one of our friends Anniversary. They have been staying at this resort for 16 years and now I know why. We stayed in the Penthouse and the suite was HUGE. I have no idea why it is max occupancy of 2. We could have fit two more people. There is no pool... More

Just went to Captiva Island for the first time and loved staying at Jensens'. As so many said in Trip Advisor, the staff could not be friendlier. We think Jensen's location on Captiva Island is ideal. We've been lucky to take nice trips to many resorts over the years, and debated whether to stay at South Seas or Jensen's but... More

We have stayed at almost every place on Captiva over the years and finally got a chance to stay recently at Jensen's. It is by far the best deal on the island. The picture on this site must have been taken from our balcony. We had a great view of the beach and a short walk from our unit. Everyone... More

Just back from a first-time week at Jensen's. We stayed in the Post Office Sweet, which we found extremely clean and comfortable. Fully-equipped and immaculate kitchen as part of a Great Room, with screened porch in the back. It's a little strange entering through the bedroom, but we quickly got used to it. Bathroom was basic, but clean and functional.... More

The location was outstanding. The gulf side of the property sits on a section of beach surrounded by private homes. The beach never had more than ten people at one time. The room was exactly as advertised, small, functional, and on the beach. The staff was very accommodating. The check in and out was the easiest i can remember. The... More
