Right on the beach, tiny room with a mini fridge. Walking distance to everything. Staff could not have been more helpful and generous (when we came in with bag of ice they said just to call and they would run it to the the room) great stay at a fantastic destination

The winding drive up the island is the prelude to one of the best vacations we have ever had! Once we arrived, Jensen’s on the Gulf far exceeded our expectations. The people were extremely friendly and our accommodations were luxurious and comfortable. Beach Décor at its best! The manatees and dolphins were daily visitors that never failed to excite! Beach...

This is a family owned operation. The owners themselves see to your needs. Dan Jenson even helped us carry our luggage to the room when we arrived. We stayed in the Penthouse, which was phenomenal. The pictures on line do not do it justice. At first, I was hesitant to go to a place that does not have room service,...

I am a single female traveler, so I am pretty particular about where I stay. Jensen's and Captiva Island was a great option for me! I stayed in the Post Office Sweet, which had a bedroom, but also a kitchen, a living space, a back patio and a little back yard with a grill. It was MORE than enough space...

Stayed in the Post Office Sweet. Fell in love instantly! Steps to the private beach. - everything provided from beach towels to chairs, umbrellas, shelling supplies, flotation devices, beach games & more! We brought kayaks! Launched right on the beach and also right at the sister property, Jensen's Marina. Had a great time paddling and fishing. Beautiful shelling.

I was very hesitant in reserving for this place, and post vacation I am glad I did. I would stay here again. I was worried about privacy & not having daily room service for beds and towels. JOG (Jensens on the Gulf) took care of all needs immediately and the staff was polite and curtious to all requests. Not a...

Jensen's never disappoints. We stayed in the Penthouse which is our favorite suite. The view from the room, or the screened-in porch, is so wonderful you almost do not need to go outside; but of course we do. The semi-private beach, just a stroll out the front door, along with all the beach amenities included is just perfect. This is...

If you are looking for a comfortable beach front location, it does not get much better than this. You would have to rent a private home to find anything comparable on Captiva. We stayed in the South Suite # 3 for a weekend getaway for our anniversary and it was delightful. The unit has a large screen patio that directly...

Literally on the gulf and equipped with everything we needed for a long weekend away. We stayed in the Post Office "sweet" with our own little yard, kitchen, living room, screen in porch. We enjoyed the beach day and night just steps from our little place. Were able to balance easy meals at "home" with a special meal out, perfect...

We stayed in the PO Box room. It was clean, quiet, comfortably spacious with a screened in porch and only seconds from the gulf. The owners were always available to help, offer suggestions of things to see/do, and made us feel genuinely welcome.
