Stayed here on a last minute whim. They had one room left and we took it. Location was fabulous. Rooms are right next to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world! Beach chairs and umbrellas are available to guests along with a cooler full of ice. The rooms are cutely decorated but the mattress was old and the... More

Beautiful view of the beach only yards away. Stunning sunsets. Shells, shells, shells. Water smooth as glass most of the time. The marina owned by the Jenson's three blocks away has MANATEES all the time. Fascinating friends they became with our daily visits. So very much to do. Outdoor cooking grills, free washing machines with soap, toys for kids, umbrellas,... More

The Jensen's are the best...any time I travel to Captiva-I will stay at their Gulf resort!! The beach is wonderful...listening to high tide while you sleep is so relaxing...just absolutely gorgeous part of the Gulf. When I go back, I am going to rent one of their boats and go island hopping.

After a six year hiatus there was another major reason for us to return to CELEBRATE at Jensen's on the Gulf; i.e.,my sister from Ft Myers, my friend from St Louis, and I from NJ. One can "go home again" for we three had the same extraordinary rest and relaxation that we previously experienced: the awesome sunsets seen from our... More

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
