Jensens Marina and Twin Palm Cottages on Captiva Island is the perfect place to stay if you love to boat and fish!
But, they are more than that ........ bring the whole family for a fun, Florida-style vacation.
If your kids aren't into fishing ..... no problem ....... these Captiva Island cottages and marina are just around the corner and within walking distance to Andy Rosse Lane which has restaurants, shops, galleries, Yolo Sports, and the beach!
Your Captiva lodging choices at the marina include 1- and 2-bedroom cottages that remind me of the places we used to stay at when we lived up north and vacationed in Cape Cod.
While you stay at Jensens Marina, you'll definitely want to take advantage of their boat rentals! Get out on the water with their family boat rides, or try the fishing tours with professional fishing guides.
Or, take their water taxi for shelling, exploring, or lunch trips to the outer islands such as North Captiva, Cabbage Key for the famous Cheeseburger in Paradise, Pine Island, Boca Grande, and Cayo Costa.
The marina has a bait and tackle shop, marina store with fishing gear for purchase or for rent, golf cart rentals, gifts, souvenirs, snacks, drinks, and ice cream ...... everything you'll need for a day out on the water and brothers Dave, Jim, and John will be very happy to help you.
As you drive in, you'll see the cottages tucked under pine trees and palms, lining Jensens Marina on both sides.
Drive all the way to the back and you'll hit the barbeque area, marina, office, shop.
Each cottage has a screened-in porch in the front. Because Jensens isn't a hotel, they don't change out your towels everyday, but it's easy to change them out daily if you want, all you have to do is bring your towels to the "hut" to get fresh ones.
Inside, cottages are very clean yet have a home-like feeling, with an open kitchen, living and dining room, and bedrooms off to the side. We felt comfortable right away!
Ladies, bring your blow-dryer ........ I didn't see one in our cottage, we stayed in #5. To see what our cottage looked like, watch the video below:
Don't worry about kitchen supplies, though, most everything is available and if you need food items, the village market is close by.
We really enjoyed our stay at our cute little Captiva cottage and I hope to go back soon one day.
Picnic tables and grills are over by the tiki huts at the marina so you can grill your freshly-caught fish for dinner.
Don't forget to go see the manatees that hang out right there most days!
Check-in is after 3PM, check-out is before 10AM, No smoking or pets allowed, minimum stay may be required.
Jensens is the second most affordable of the Captiva accommodations, after Captiva Island Inn.
Check out the suites and cottages at their family-owned beach resort, Jensens on the Gulf.
