About Suzanne Poor\Sara Poor

I am a retired business woman, writer, and photographer and live in Northern NJ. I have three children, four grandchildren and two cats. I love swimming and biking and I love the Jersey Shore.

Suzanne Poor\Sara Poor purchased this house in 2002

Why Suzanne Poor\Sara Poor chose Harvey Cedars

I have always loved the shore and when I had the opportunity to buy a place in Harvey Cedars late in life, I jumped at the opportunity. There is nothing like the peaceful quiet of being near the ocean. A great getaway from the hassles of modern life. I am happy to be able to get there myself when I can and to share it with family, friends and hopefully, you, too!

What makes this house unique

Having the main living quarters on the second floor and the open format of the living and dining areas are the best things about the house. With views of the bay from the living room and then outside from the deck, one experiences the calm and the beauty of the place. The outdoor shower is also a key element, with a seating area for those waiting to use the shower and a door to the bar area near the outdoor seating. It is a thinner part of the island, so the walk up to the beach is very quick (5 min).

Wonderful home in Harvey Cedars

  • 5 of 5

Sara's house was well-equipped, warm and welcoming for our multi-generational family. We were there to celebrate my mother's 85th birthday and had our teenage son and his friend as well as a few visitors throughout the week. The beds were extraordinarily comfortable and there were so many nice touches that made it feel like a real home and not a rental. Sara was very responsive if we needed anything. Because the house is at one of the skinniest parts of LBI, the bay and incredible sunsets were half a block away and it was a very short walk to beach access. Being close to an intersection with a light was helpful for our elder family member who needed extra time to cross the boulevard. This section of the island is very quiet and peaceful. While you aren't walking distance from shops and restaurants, it's a great trade off to hear nature sounds instead of the bustle of the more commercial and densely populated towns on LBI. A great rental experience all around.

Great house for a large family

  • 4 of 5

This was our second year staying in this house. It is spacious and well equipped. We were ten people altogether (six adults, four children). The ocean beach is an easy walk even though the house is on the bay side. There is also a park with a playground within easy walking distance. The Harvey Cedars bay beach is a short drive or bike ride to the north, as are other local amenities. Everyone in our family has a great time staying at this house.

Great house for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at LBI. This house is only a few minutes from the beach which is never crowded. The house was very comfortable. We loved the outdoor shower. The living room was spacious and great for a large family. The deck was great and we used the grill 4 or 5 of the nights for dinner. We will definitely come back and stay another week!

Harvey Cedars Gem

  • 5 of 5

Wanted to take the time to thank Sara for allowing us to rent her lovely/charming beach home in Harvey Cedars this past week, August 27-September 3rd....The house is situated perfectly, being a few steps away from the bay, as well as being a barely 3 minute walk to the beach...the home itself is very warm and inviting with a fully stocked kitchen, very comfortable living space, as well as a wonderful deck with bay is the perfect rental in all ways....Sara's attention to detail was wonderful and it was a pleasure to do business with her....very quick responses to questions and concerns....Would highly recommend this property to anyone looking to rent in Harvey Cedars and hope to be back next year!

A spacious, well situated, and well equipped beach house.

  • 4 of 5

We were three generations sharing this house for a week. One grandchild gave it five stars. Another loved the bunk beds and the opportunity to sleep on the top bunk. The third, a toddler, loved being able to walk to the bay and watch the boats and the birds.

The location is great: an easy walk to the ocean beach, away from the commercial areas on the island but close enough that going for groceries or ice cream was not a trek. With young children in our group we would like it even more if it were closer to a swimming beach on the bay side.

With bedrooms and bathrooms on two floors this is a good house for multi-family groups. The house is also spacious, well equipped, well laid out, and well maintained.

We enjoyed our stay at this house and would recommend it highly.
