Almost everything that I use when I'm at the house is there for you, such as spices, tape, pens & paper, cleaning products, etc. I will also assist you with ordering your groceries to be delivered from Shop-Rite or PeaPod prior to your arrival.

My beautiful house has 5 BR's and a den with locking door: 2 king beds (both en-suites), 2 queen beds (1 en-suite), 1 queen sleeper (in den w/ locking door), and 1 full bed + 1 twin bed in the 5th BR.

A.D.A.: This house complies w/ Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) for some items, such as faucets, elevator, flush flooring, large open master shower, etc. Please inquire about your specific needs.

SMOKING: This is a NON- Smoking house, but is OK to smoke outside.

LBI is a premier destination for summer vacationing, known for its white sand beaches, restaurants, boutique shopping, water sports, amusement parks, miniature golf, and crabbing. Under 2 hours from metro NY, N. NJ, Philly. LBI has been almost fully restored after Hurricane Sandy, back to business as usual in most places. The north end, where we are located, looks as if nothing ever happened! LBI still has 'IT'!

Private Beach, Ocean and Bay Views:

* This home has multiple views of the ocean and bay-- the roof deck is perfect for both sunrise and sunset.

* The beach is restricted to residents/renters on the adjoining blocks; there is no public access. This allows you to enjoy peaceful tranquility just 200 feet away! There are no vendors or restaurants on the beach-- just unspoiled white sand with ocean waves breaking nearby. You are permitted to picnic on the beach; trash containers are at each entrance/exit. Lifeguards are posted in the area for supervised safe swimming; we provide beach badges, toys & chairs.

I offer a fully turn-key operation at this chic new home. I've thought of everything to make your vacation just that-- a vacation! I include numerous amenities in the house, so that you spend less time shopping and dragging supplies there. The elevator makes moving luggage and groceries SO much easier! The huge pantry provides terrific shelving for extra food and drinks. What else will make your life easier? Read on!

When you arrive, the house has just been cleaned... smell the scent of sparkling rooms. Load your suitcases into the elevator, conveniently located on the ground floor, and drop them off at the 1st or 2nd floors. Reload with your groceries and repeat!

The 1st floor wet bar in the den has a mini frig for drinks and snacks - use it for the kids since there are plastic cups in those cabinets, plus there are board and card games and a TV with DVD player in the den, which helps entertain them while you get the house together- if they're not exploring outside on the beach already!

The wet bar w/ beverage frig in the upstairs living room is equipped with an ice bucket, shakers, pitchers, and margarita & wine glasses. Take advantage of the views, dock your iPod in the stereo, and open the sliding doors to see the waves, hear the roar of the ocean and smell the salt water...

Walk to the kitchen and take a quick inventory… under the sinks are various cleaning items, dish soap, and dishwasher detergent, and the pantry has trash bags, recycling containers, serving platters & bowls, lobster pot, and much more. Salt, pepper, spices, coffee filters, sugar, and plastic wrap are available as well.

The ground floor powder room has a locking entrance from the outside shower, so that when you return from the beach you can shower outside, use your house key to get into the powder room, and throw your wet bathing suit and beach towels into the washer/dryer. Plus there's a bench to sit down while you dress, and hooks to hang personal items.

Guests waiting to use the outside shower can relax in the comfy chairs on the covered patio w/ ceiling fan. Once they've showered, they can wait inside the house in the patio room to relax or watch TV. It's a nice, open, cool space.

The huge Master BR on the 2nd floor has a King bed, gentleman's chest, woman's dresser with mirror, 2 night stands, large TV, DVD player, phone, walk-in closet, and gorgeous hardwood floors, with tumbled travertine marble flooring and walls throughout the bath area. Private water closet, 'His' and 'Hers' dark exotic wood vanities with marble countertops and beautiful Kohler hardware, hair dryer, towels, and unique 8 foot deep tumbled travertine marble shower for two with duplicate Grohe rain heads, Kohler hand showers and body sprays, and 2 travertine marble seats. Walk from the bedroom through sliders to see the sunrise from the covered deck, or just relax in the love seat inside. It's a true oasis.

The ground floor is a great place to relax away from the sun, and the covered patio and powder room are just a few steps away.

I hope I've painted a vivid picture of what you can expect at this gorgeous place. Please feel free to contact me to ask me how I can help you plan your stay and personalize it even more!

SORRY, we do not rent to prom or graduation groups.

About Susan Monte

Trustworthy, hard-working, dependable. Born, raised and educated in NJ (B.S. in Biology from Seton Hall, and an M.A. in Education from Montclair State). First generation American (my parents were born in Europe), living in Morris County, NJ.

My parents had a summer place in Beach Haven, and my mom now lives in Barnegat Light, so my siblings and I grew up spending our summers on LBI body surfing, clamming, biking, walking, going to Fantasy Island and Bay Village, playing mini golf, fishing, and shopping at the many clothing and antique stores.

You can trust me to do whatever I promise to do, and to be available when you need me. I am a customer- focused person who enjoys meeting new tenants-- after spending 20 years in a Fortune 500 healthcare company focused on sales and marketing, it's a pure delight to meet and service new clients again.

Susan Monte purchased this house in 2008

Why Susan Monte chose Harvey Cedars





North Beach, one of the most exclusive towns on LBI, is within walking distance to Harvey Cedars' Sunset Park and Surf City's restaurants and shops. Our home is a mere 200 feet from the beach AND has many handcrafted upgrades.

I custom-built this chic home in 2008 and enjoy sharing it with families like yours. My home is completely custom built, immaculate, spacious, beautifully furnished, and extraordinarily well-maintained. This is the 2nd house from the beach and offers outdoor living space on five decks, a covered patio (great for rainy days) and outdoor areas- a 100' by 100' double lot with room to run around outside or relax inside.

Mine stands apart from other properties because I provide many extras and amenities to make your life easier. There are 7 TV's in the house, including HD boxes, one DVR box, premium cable, and DVD players. Bath towels, dish towels, and bed linens (sheets) are just the beginning... you'll have the use of everything I use myself-- from the SONY Stereo w/ iDock, toilet tissue, shampoo, conditioner, trash bags, to the little things, like DVD's, decks of playing cards, board games, books, rubber bands, note paper, pens, pencils, etc.

I have local resources available to help in a pinch: my mom is 10 minutes away, our handyman is available 24 x 7, and I've contracted with plumbers, electricians, and other contractors to be available when we need them.

Lastly, the house was built in August 2008, so it's a young house used mostly in the summer months-- kept in pristine condition-- ready for your visit! I regularly visit the house to maintain it and supervise the cleaning process to ensure you are greeted by an immaculate place when you arrive. Only the best for my guests!

What makes this house unique

THE OWNER: When you rent this home, you have the benefit of me. I am responsive and informative ... I send out a handbook with information about the house as well as restaurants, shopping, activities, and resources. The house is stocked with many items for use during your stay, so there's less for you to bring from home.

PRIVACY: The house is only 200 feet from the private beach-- we are the 2nd off the beach-- which is only used by homes on the same tract (block)-- so there is no public access to the beach. The house has no neighbor on the west side, and the east neighbor is the guest house for the oceanfront home.

VIEWS: The roof deck provides 360 degree views of the ocean and bay and is a great place to watch sunrises and sunsets! There are 4 other decks in the house providing great views, PLUS a covered patio. The most widely used deck off the top floor kitchen/dining/living room has a table and chairs with ocean views. The Master deck (top floor) is private and features an attractive overhang. The 2nd Master deck is balcony size, perfect to sit and read while listening to the ocean. The airy first floor south deck has access to the den and cherry bedroom. The two story entrance boasts double closets and the entire house has ample closets for storage.

SPACE: The outdoor space is a wide open double lot- 100' x 100'-- allowing kids to run around and expend their energy! The interior of the house is spacious and open and has a living room, a den, and a family room to allow everyone to spread out and get away when you need a little privacy or to watch the game. The bedrooms are large, with three of them having comfortable seats for reading.

SAFETY: The railings around the decks all meet or exceed minimum requirements for protecting children. The west side of the house is protected by landscaping to prevent children from running into the street.

PARKING: There's ample parking available in the 3 car garage and in the large paver driveway for SUV's and cars.

Great location, hospitality, & space..

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for a few nights over New Year's. Sue was a great host - very responsive and accommodating. The property is very well kept and I can imagine is a real stunner in the summer. Even in the middle of a snow storm, the proximity to the beach was amazing!

Owner's Response: Saurav and his guests were the perfect tenants- not just easy to deal with, but respectful of my home and the check-out process. As a 5/6BR home with 4 full and 2 half baths, this 2nd house from the beach makes this home perfect for summer. The interior of the house was recently painted and looks even better in person than the photos depict. Thanks again Saurav for your review!

Great house/Great location

  • 5 of 5

Great house in the most wonderful location on Long Beach Island in quiet North Beach away from the busier parts of the island. You could not ask for an easier walk to the beach which was hardly filled with other beach goers even in August. Everything you need is already in the house from kitchen to beach items so you need not worry about packing extra items. Clean and in perfect condition and perfect for a relaxing visit.

Magnificent Seashore Home

  • 5 of 5

This home was everything we could have hoped for and more. We were fortunate to stay in this here for 4 weeks and enjoyed all that it had to offer. The owner, Sue Yodice did everything to make our stay perfect and was immediately available to assist in any way possible. From the decor to the amenities, the home was breathtaking, and only a few short steps to a beautiful quiet beach. Pride of ownership is evident in every facet of this stunning home. The house was spotless and extremely well maintained. We have never stayed in a rental or hotel in which we felt so very comfortable. Oh, and the beds, absolutely heavenly.

A wonderful property. Very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

2014 was the second year that my wife and I stayed at this house. The property is immaculate inside and very comfortable. It is conveniently located off of the main LBI road and the beach is just a few yards away. Shopping and dining is also very close by. The house is large and can certainly accommodate several families. My wife and I love the overall layout and design. It does have an elevator which my wife needs due to a disability. We really enjoy coming to LBI and staying in this house and we are planning on a trip this September.

Best house we have ever rented!

  • 5 of 5

The listing description was accurate and the amenities were better than the listing even described. The house was spotless and very well maintained. Susan was very helpful and informative. The beach was only a short walk and was very private, not crowded at all. I would recommend this property and will definitely rent it again myself!
