The Best Lifestyle

Welcome to Jupiter Bay Viewpoint

Jupiter Bay offers an ideal lifestyle in beautiful Northern Palm Beach County.  We are adjacent to Carlin Park, with its beautiful beaches, heart trail and amphitheater.  We're a short walk to Jupiter's Riverwalk and "Funky Fishing Village".

This website was developed for both condominium owners and Community Association professionals.  It's purpose is to improve our communities by:

  • Sharing knowledge and ideas with and among owners,
  • Communicating information regarding the Jupiter Bay Condominium Association,
  • Presenting important facts regarding Jupiter Bay's Condominium Documents and Florida Statutes,
  • Providing insight into condominium association administration and management,  and
  • Helping owners better understand the governing concepts of condominium living.

We anticipate that this website will encourage more active owner participation and positive contribution to the communities.  It will endeavor to help promote open communication and dialog among owners and association staff and management.

The website provides more general (non specific to Jupiter Bay) as well as more in depth information on specific relevant topics than what's available on the Association's website.  It can serve as a reference tool enabling association members to find important information regarding condominium living and Jupiter Bay specifically.

This website is a work in progress that was originally developed during the 2014 Jupiter Bay Board of Director's election.  Since the election it has morphed into a place for posting miscellaneous information that I either stumble onto or is the result of my research into specific subjects germane to my Board Director experiences or my industry certification as a licensed community association manager.

This website was designed and is being maintained by a Jupiter Bay owner, who was a board director, serving as Treasurer and President, former Property Manager, and licensed Community Association Manager.  It is not an official website of the Jupiter Bay Condominium Association, and information posted here is based solely on the knowledge and opinion of the author.

Also, let me state that I am neither qualified nor licensed to practice law or render legal opinions.  Where necessary to enhance understanding of a particular subject area, I may list relevant Florida statutes, condominium document references or quoted legal information.   But in most cases I will not express an opinion or take a particular position.  I may try to clarify what's being said, but usually the factual direct quotes speak for themselves.

About Us

Jupiter Bay is a unique and special community.  It is home to full-time residents, part-time residents, and residents' guests and tenants. We have a variety of accommodations: 2-story, 4-story & 5-story buildings with one-bedroom units, 2-bedroom units and 2-bedroom townhouses. We have a resort-like setting with a lake, walking trail, on-site restaurant, and a variety of recreational facilities (swimming pools, spa, tennis courts and bocce ball) located on a 30+ acre campus.

Jupiter Bay lies on the edge of what has become Jupiter's, and northern Palm Beach County's, burgeoning culinary scene, with a variety of seafood restaurants mostly situated along the Intracoastal waterway: Jetty's, U-Tiki, Beacon, Lucky Shuck, Square Grouper, Guanabanas, and Schooners. Jupiter Bay even has its own onsite restaurant, The Twisted Tuna.  We are a short walk or drive to movie theaters (Cinepolis), live theatre (Maltz), a Publix market, Harbourside Place, Riverwalk, a dozen other restaurants, churches, etc.

As the following Google Map shows, we are located between US Highway #1 and Carlin Park and the Atlantic Ocean.  We are close enough to the ocean to enjoy morning walks on the beach, but still far enough away to avoid title surge and beach erosion. Within minutes we can jump onto interstate 95 or the Florida Turnpike, making a 30-minute trip to the Palm Beach International Airport or under 2-hour trips to the Fort Lauderdale or Miami Cruise Terminals.
