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

A unique way to experience Captiva. Great location with an active marina. A short walking distance for all your needs, eating, shopping, general store, library and best of all one of the best white sand beaches anywhere. The cottages with large screened porches are great for all your sand stuff. With the picnic table you can eat either inside or... 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

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
