The area became a resort community for Seattleites in the 1920s with the establishment of the Juanita Beach Resort. A new post office was established in 1921 under the name Juanita though the inspiration for the name remains a mystery. The town was given another boost in the 1920s with the construction of Lake Washington Boulevard, also known as highway 2-A, through Juanita. Businesses catering to the automobile were some of the first to appear along the road in Juanita. The Juanita Sanitarium, purchased by Fairfax Hospital of Seattle in 1938, opened in the mid-1920s to treat mental health patients. In 1928, a newly expanded and rebuilt Juanita Beach opened for tourists. Its new attractions included a two story bath house and an amusement Park. A plan was proposed in 1946 to turn the beach into a state park but was shot down for fears that it would ruin business. In 1950 a new larger Juanita school was built to replace the small wooden one. In 1953, Juanita's beaches had to be closed for over a month due to pollution, a problem which has plagued the beach even today.
A new post office opened in 1960 followed by the area's first suburban shopping center and bank in 1963. As the farms and large homesteads around Juanita gave way to subdivisions in the 1960s, the village began to look into incorporation while neighboring Kirkland was looking to annex the area. Juanita became a part of the city of Kirkland in July 1967. The post office closed in 1970.
During the November 2009 general election, the unincorporated areas of Finn Hill, Juanita and Kingsgate voted to be annexed into the city of Kirkland. The annexation came after encouragement from the King County government, as well as provisions of the state's Growth Management Act that offers financial incentives to aid in the annexation process.
