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.

We have stopped in for fuel, water, fishing supplies a few times, and every time, the employees are extremely helpful and friendly. My husband bought a filet knife and wanted a sharpener. They had none for sale, but let him use the one on the fish cleaning station. They also gave us a scrap piece of wood to use as...

After a fabulous week last year, we planned all year to return. We arrived today and felt like family. We were greeted and welcomed like we have been coming for years. The weather is great and the week ahead holds all kinds of adventure. This place is amazing.

Enjoyed our stay! The cottage was a nice size for he family. Easy walk to the beach and several restaurants. Favorite thing was fishing at the dock and watching the manatees. The addition of garbage pickup and towel delivery would have been welcomed.

We stayed at Jensens twin palms last weekend. Great fishing resort with clean cottages well equipped and with central air. Great tackle shop, even had a boat battery I needed. Gas at the dock, live shrimp, this is not the Four Seasons Hotel but if you like flats fishing or running offshore, this is a fisherman so dream vacation spot.
