About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

ADDITIONAL COTTAGE - on property available. Can be rented separately or together. Long-term rental available. Discounts available. Contact owner for more information.

LOCATION - Just a half mile west of the beautiful Atlantic ocean and just 60 miles from the Islands of the Bahamas. Close to a full range of exciting Palm Beach attractions, which make the area one of the country's most popular vacation destinations. Within minutes you can play a round of golf, take a walk on the beach, go sportfishing, boating, skiing, scuba diving, biking, bird-watching, visit a sea turtle center, or climb the historic Jupiter Lighthouse.

PROPERTY - 1/3 of an acre with 100 ft of waterfront. There is a 7 ft concrete perimeter wall for security and privacy. Beautiful tropical landscaping with 3 separate elevations down to the water. Three large wooden decks for entertaining with many outdoor tables and chairs, hammocks, and a hammock chair.

NORTH COTTAGE - 900 square ft with a detached 100 square ft bath house w/sauna. Private outdoor shower accessed from master bedroom.

SOUTH COTTAGE - Contact owner for information.

DOCK/BOAT SLIPS - Large private T-shaped dock with whips to accommodate small boats, a floating dock for larger boats, and a slip for up to a 40 ft boat. Complete with dock power, water, lights, and fish cleaning table.

THE WATER - The property is directly on the Intracoastal Waterway. Watch the boats and yachts go by! Clear water with lobster, stone crabs, and fishing right in the backyard. The Jupiter Inlet is 2.5 miles to the south, with no fixed bridges. Put your boat in the water at the Burt Reynolds Park Boat Ramp, and store your trailer at the cottage.

DIRECTIONS - We are located 2.5 miles north of the Jupiter Inlet on the west side of the Intracoastal Waterway facing Jupiter Island - home of Tiger Woods, Nick Price, and Greg Norman. From Indiantown Road and US1, head north on US1 past County Line Road 1.2 miles (directly across from the Jupiter Hills Country Club).

HISTORY - Jupiter is rich in history with the earliest known records of the Jupiter Inlet dating to 1565. When Spanish explorers first arrived in this area, they found the Jega Indians living along the banks of the Jupiter Inlet and Loxahatchee River. The Indians called themselves the Jobe. When English settlers found the area in 1763, Jobe sounded to them like the mythological god Jove, or Jupiter, and the name remains today. The Jupiter area first came to widespread public attention when Johathan Dickinson, the namesake of nearby Johnathan Dickinson State park (and my great, great, great uncle), was shipwrecked on the shore of Jupiter and narrowly escaped death at the hands of the hostile Indians. Today, the DuBois Museum in DuBois Park stands atop the Indian mound described by Dickinson as the place where his family was held captive. In the 1800's Jupiter's most identifiable landmark, the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse, was erected. The lighthouse stands 108 feet tall with 105 steps to climb.

Norwood, Pa

Perfect cottage with awesome views!

  • 5 of 5

My 2 little Yorkshire Terriers and I stayed here from 10/24 to 11/01/2015 and just loved this place. The cottage is very comfortable and there wasn't anything else that I needed during my week's stay. And the views off the back deck over-looking the intracoastal water-way....sunrise, sunset and when I was there....a full moon made for some excellent photography. The house is a few miles from most attractions such as the Jupiter Lighthouse, Jupiter Island, Juno Beach......but I was able to get to them by bicycle. There's a state park across the road that has a neat 2 hour river cruise and many bike paths. Stuart, Fl. to the north and Palm Beach to the south are just a short car ride away. There is a care-taker for the property that was very informative....he gave me several ideas as to where to bike ride......Riverbend Park being my favorite. I had a great time and highly recommend this cottage to anyone.

New Smyrna Beach, FL

Peaceful, serene, and tropical!

  • 5 of 5

This is our new favorite getaway! We live in New Smyrna Beach, about 2 1/2 hours from Jupiter and we love coming south for the bluer water and better fishing. Love that this villa offers a boat slip, is a pet friendly, and so close to the inlet. We took our daughter, her friend, our dog, and our boat! LOl.. We had plenty of room even with the villa only being a 1x1. It works for us and has everything we need! The grounds are super tropical and the sand/fire pit area was a favorite hang out for the teen girls. It's a perfect little piece of paradise!!

Winter Garden

Comfortable with a great view

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was exactly what we were looking for-a safe restful haven for myself, husband and dog Tater while we handled my Mom's funeral arrangements. We contacted Randy just 4 days prior to the service -he replied quickly and worked with us to make our stay as comfortable as possible. It was well stocked, clean and true to the listing description. We anticipated occasional visitors and the large kitchen island & seating on the terraces out back were perfect. It was easy to launch our kayak from the floating dock when we needed some solitude. We think Jupiter Beach is THE best leash-free dog friendly beach in Florida, and we've visited 4 to date. I read the prior reviews and agree the grounds need a little TLC but everything on the water requires a lot of upkeep. This is a waterfront cottage not a Jupiter Island mansion, and I recommend this to anyone interested in boating fishing and a beautiful waterfront view. The availability of 2 side by side waterfront cottages is rare, and would be perfect for 2 families wishing to vacation together. I look forward to returning under happier circumstances soon.

I was a little nervous because this was the first time using VRBO - but we were SOOOOOOOO extremely happy! Dealing with the owner was easy - has was most accommodating and super friendly! There was a "caretaker" on the grounds - Dwayne - really nice guy and super helpful in telling us how to get places! Cottage is ADORABLE! We had the south cottage - it was just me, my hubby and our 12 lb beagle - Milee - so it was the perfect size! And there are concrete barriers on both sides of the "yard" and a gate in front - so I could just open the glass sliders and she could run around! The house was clean and the view was to die for! Beds were comfy too! There was a Publix just down the road and the best breakfast place - A TIME TO EAT DINER!!! PB&J Pancakes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I will definitely stay there again if we are ever in that area!

PROS: VERY beautiful view, pleasantly decorated, there's a guy who lives on a boat on the property who was always friendly and helpful, hot tub, good location near beaches and businesses.

CONS: Noise of traffic, some of the outdoor furniture is in bad shape and was in need of a good cleaning, landscaping also not in great shaped (cleaned up lots of dead leaves and branches), property manager

Owner's Response: That is odd. There was no mention or complaint of any traffic noise, outdoor furniture, landscaping, leaves or branches. We accommodated the problems the guest was having with her IPad, installing additional WiFi hardware to make her comfortable (on a Sunday afternoon). Maybe she wasn't pleased as we did not have open dates for her requested return to the property.
