We found this on Tripadvisor and with the great review gave it a try and I was better than the reviews. We checked on Tuesday and room was ready about 1:30pm, which was a bonus. We stayed in the Post Office Suite for 5 nights. Its doesn't have a gulf view which I was a little disappointed until we got... More

We've vacationed at Jensen's since I was a child and it as always been the best place to stay. Now we've brought the third generation of our family here and it was still a lot of fun. Stayed in the Beach Nest this time and it was beautiful. I loved the screened in deck to have breakfast but the open... More

We had a great 4 night stay at the Post Office Sweet, it was lovely to have a kitchen with a large fridge to keep the wine/beer and water cool and to be able to make breakfast to eat on the covered veranda(we could hear the traffic but it didn't bother us at all). The whole house was very clean... More

These guys treated us really well. John is a truly delightful man and he made our visit. Staff was awesome too.I know it helped that we were staying at their hotel on the gulf side. They appreciate it and certainly take double good care of you.

We had reserved a room for a long weekend in June. Unfortunately, I broke my foot and am wearing a "boot". A beach vacation didn't seem like such a good idea now. Though it was outside of money refund limits, Kevin was very helpful in returning our deposit. Look forward to visiting them soon.

My husband and arrived on May 16th, my husband's 60th birthday. And he promised to bring me back for my big 60! I'm already counting the days. Let me just say this is our 5th or 6th stay with Jensen's and it a perfect gem on the Gulf of Mexico. The Jensen brothers take pride in keeping the grounds, rooms... More

Thanks to Trip Advisor, we discovered a wonderful "old Florida" hide-away at Jensen's. We were looking for a place to park the car for the week and enjoy a beautiful, tropical island and this is it! We would start the day watching the sun rise at the marina (you can't miss the manatees there) and finished with sunset on the... More

We just came from spending 4 nights at Jensen's on the Gulf and loved it. Even though it was a holiday weekend, Jensen's makes you feel like you're the only person on the island. They take great care of keeping their property clean, well maintained and secluded. Although they were booked we barely saw another person. We stayed in the... More

Having spent 10 years as a flight attendant, I have stayed in my fair share of hotels. My husband has spent many years traveling domestically and internationally. Jensen's on the gulf was perfect! The pictures on the website do not do it justice. The rooms are clean,and more updated than some of the pictures show. Jensen's provided all the things... More

We loved Jensen's! Just what we were looking for totally laid-back and we were able to start decompressing right away. The Jensen brothers are so wonderful and a accommodating! We stayed in "on the beach", room number 1 for a week May 3 though May 10. It was right on the beach! The room was very small and we knew... More
