I highly recommend Jensen’s on the Gulf. The accommodation was private, clean and comfortable. It provided everything we needed to prepare and cook meals. The staff was friendly and helpful. The only problem was that we didn’t want to leave. We plan to stay longer on our next

Hi! Is there any access to a pool? If not, is there a comparable property with one ? Thx!
I do not believe there is any access to a pool but with the beautiful Gulf waters right there it's not missed.

Does the porch being screened in cause any issue with the view?
Very sorry about the delay in responding to your question. Screened porches & balconies keep insects out and have a minimal effect on the view for most people.

Hi, I would ask the staff at Jensen's. They rent boats for sailing and could direct you to the right place. They have fishing boats as well.
