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 Long Beach Island

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).

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.

Excellent location; comfortable, well maintained home

  • 5 of 5

My extended family and I had a great stay at this beautiful home in Harvey Cedars earlier this month. The owner was very responsive and the place was extremely clean, tastefully decorated and very comfortable. In particular the outdoor shower and the two separate living areas were a real plus. All the bedrooms have newly installed air conditioning units, ceiling fans and comfortable mattresses. The house is very well stocked with pantry items and even some beach equipment (chairs, umbrella and toys). I highly recommend this rental.

Lovely property

  • 5 of 5

Spent a wonderful week at this well maintained property. The location was peaceful and quiet, short walk to an uncrowded beach and the home is well equipped with plenty of room for our entire group of 6 adults and 4 children. It is conveniently close to everything the island has to offer. We have rented on LBI for many years but this property was our favorite. It was wonderful to watch the sunsets over the bay as we ate dinner on the deck or while at the dining table through the picture window. The owners are wonderful people who have equipped the property to ensure their guests have a carefree vacation.

Great location; easy walking distance to beach and bay

  • 4 of 5

House was easy to find with the instructions that the owners gave. Plenty of parking for a large group. Outside shower was clean and located close to the door to the inside of the house. There are also a couple of beach chairs that the owners provide - if you forget yours. We enjoyed our stay on LBI. Would be willing to go again.
