Jupiter Ocean & Racquet Club is a smaller low-rise complex which is nestled among multi-million dollar condominium properties on A1A. The miles of beach are unfettered by any high rises. They are across on the western side of A1A. The beach is the only area in Palm Beach county that allows owners to bring their pets. The complex has an adjacent tennis club, and golf can be played nearby at the county-owned North Palm Beach Country Club and others.
There are wonderful restaurants for dining and dancing, The Maltz Theater is five minutes away, as is Loggerhead Park(sea turtle refuge), Burt Reynolds Park and Museum, Carlin Park, which has baseball fields, children's playground, picnic grounds, and, of course, the beach. The Loxahatchee River has both canoe rentals and walking trails so that you can see cypress swamps with a variety of wildlife including alligators. Blowing Rocks Park has ocean geysers shooting through rocks, and Coral Reef Park is a snorkeling beach. All in all, Jupiter is one of the last unspoiled areas of South Florida where you can find a high degree of sophistication, as well as a lazy, laid back atmosphere.
I am first and foremost an ocean lover. I love to body surf in the ocean, and was taught to do so by the Jones Beach lifeguards in Long Island. I live in the Southampton area of Long Island. I love the environment. That is why I wrote my novel, The Mansion Builders Builders, A Novel of Land, Power and Passion in The Hamptons. I was a Dean of Admissions for a New York college and an English teacher. I served as director of fund raising for the American Cancer Society in Southampton. I enjoy cultural events, art, nature, tennis, dancing, singing, and dressing up to go to parties, evening dinners, and fun with friends. That is why I chose Jupiter for my second home! It has all of these things and more!
I chose to buy this property for several reasons. The first was proximity to the ocean. It is two block away. The second was its spaciousness. The spatial layout is excellent. The master bedroom/bath is separated from the living spaces. The kitchen is large and workable, with washer and dryer inherent. The living room was furnished with a leather queen-sized sleeper sofa. The foyer has built-in laptop/workspace area if needed. The guest bathroom is off the foyer. And foremost, Jupiter Beach is the only pet-friendly beach in Palm Beach County.
I enjoy the peacefulness and serenity of knowing the environment of my unit is friendly, unpretentious, and low-key. The unit is clean, tiled, and homey. The security is good. My unit is well cared for, very clean, freshly painted, with white tiled floors, newly tiled bathrooms, a wet bar, and everything a renter would need, including sheets, towels, beach towels, kitchen equipment, and patio furniture. There are no RV's or trucks allowed in the complex.
