Worth the drive to Captiva because it puts you MUCH closer to Cabbage Key and Caya Costa!!! Boats are in great shape - well maintained, good instruction, nice shop. Clean potties. You do need to put a $500 hold on your Visa....but at the end, they take the cost of the boat out of that.

Initially, my husband and I were looking for a place to escape and "gear up" before a funeral service in Fort Myers. We were pleasantly surprised that this trip also became a mini vacation for us. We stayed in cottage 11 which is upstairs with a view of the water. The unit was the perfect size, very clean with a...

What a wonderful and unique treasure in the heart of Captiva Island. In fact, Jensen's is the real heart of this beautiful island; it has withstood the test of time and harkens back to a bygone era of real Florida island life. Owned and operated by three charismatic brothers (Dave, John & Jimmy) who have preserved the character of the...

This was our first stay at Jensen's Twin Palm Cottages and Marina. The Jensen's were extremely friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the fact that Jensen's is centrally located close enough to walk to almost everything on Captiva Island. We had a very relaxing vacation and made many new friends. We have already booked for next year!

Had a wonderful day on the water with a boat from Jensen Marina. Nice group of employees. Great value. Winds in the 25 to 30 mile an hour range made for a wet ride. Lunch at barnacle phils. Will definitely do it again.

I have had the pleasure to stay here many times. They are like family and this is the best spot on earth if you ask me. The cottages are maintained perfectly and have every convenience just bring your food as Island prices are higher then anywhere on the mainland. If you want some peace and quit and a little of...

We stayed in a main floor apartment, that was rustic, but spotlessly clean and well-modernized. Everything necessary for a self-catering holiday. The marina has a picnic area which is great for sitting in the sun, enjoying a meal or drink while watching the boats. The best thing about Jensen's for us was that it's only 5 minutes walk from shops...

This was our second stay at Jensen's and it was not a disappointment. We live in Naples, Fla and have decided Jensen's is our favorite getaway that is close to home. We get there and feel like we have entered another world. We leave the stress of work behind and totally relax. The accommodations are clean and comfortable. The entire...

We've rent from Jensen's in the past and never had a bad experience. They give all the instructions you need, and suggestions for things to do ( and not to do). Today we saw two manatees in front of Jensen's and lots of pelicans. The guys there are very knowledgeable about the area and equipment, and are very nice. 🚣🌴☀💕

We stayed for 4 nights and enjoyed the clean accommodations. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. We rented a boat each day and went fishing and to several restaurants by boat. I would highly recommend this place to stay. We look forward to staying with them again.
