A Slice of Old Florida


It’s been described as “one of the last vestiges of how it used to be” on Captiva Island.

Jensen’s Twin Palm Cottages & Marina Resort looks like it jumped off a postcard depicting historic Old Florida.  Featuring small wooden cottages along the waterfront, tiki huts scattered about, and a marina with longtime, knowledgeable boat captains, Jensen’s has long been considered a Captiva institution.

The first cottage was built on the property in 1928. It is still standing today. More cottages were constructed in the 1940s and 1950s, and currently maintain that Old Florida look with wide wooden screened-in porches and throwback décor, although throughout the years they’ve been modernized with air-conditioning and up-to-date bathrooms.

After 41 years in the family, the Jensens are selling their more than one-acre property on the bay that includes not only 14 rental cottages, but also a 35-slip marina, store and little museum surrounded by palm trees along the back bays of Captiva Island.

BTW, the sale price is $19.85 million.  Any takers?
