I wanted a getaway vacation to just relax and unwind, and we found the perfect answer at Jensen's 'On the Gulf'. We stayed 6 nights in the PO Sweet just steps from the beach with the most gorgeous sunsets. The cottage was quaint, clean, and had everything we needed. The location is central - you can walk to most anything on Captiva, and only need a car if you opt to go back to Sanibel for shopping or other activities. But what really makes this place special is the Jensens - if you need something, they'll find a way to help you out. We walked over to the marina and sister resort everyday to fish from the docks, or just check in with the manatees. No matter which Jensen we ran into, we were always greeted with a welcoming smile. We rented one of their boats one day for a trip up the bay to the state park - it came with a map, generous advice, and fishing equipment to boot! I can't wait until the next time we can go back, and yes, I'm sure there will be a next time!
