About Marilyn Upton

My husband and I purchased this property in 1972 with the thought of vacationing rentals and possible retirement. He unfortunately has passed away but I am still carrying on the rental business. We enjoy people, children and pets. I like having the pleasure of meeting people and providing a comfortable, clean environment while allowing them their privacy.

It is a wonderful way of life and completely relaxing, a great getaway for your family and pet. I hope you will someday consider staying at our place. Rich and I always enjoyed surf fishing, crabbing and just waking up to the sound of the Ocean. I would never think of leaving LBI; It is serene and quiet off-season and has all the atmosphere of the Jersey Shore as it was years ago. Look forward to meeting you someday. Marilyn

Why Marilyn Upton chose Harvey Cedars

The property has 2 - Two family homes - The rental property is located in the rear and the front home is where I live full time. We have had over 35 years of returning guests who feel like family and we enjoy having children and pets staying at our place. It is a place of comfort, fairly quiet, convenient to all stores but mostly to the bay and ocean. The ocean is only 4 houses away and there are no streets to cross with very little traffic. It is a great place to bicyle, walk or just relax on the deck under the umbrella, where the picnic table seats 4 or there is also a larger picnic table in the yard downstairs We provide some beach chairs and beach toys. There are many flowers growing all over the property. The laundry room is convenient and closed in with lots of line space. The outdoor shower is also enclosed with a dressing room. The rear house has evening lighting and atmosphere. We also have qualified lifeguards on duty every day 10-5 and many stores are located within a 5 block area. There is a bay beach with shade and a basketball hoop. A lifeguard is on duty at the bay beach which is fenced in and good for children up to about 6 or 7 years. The bay beach is in walking distance (5 blocks).

What makes this house unique

We are located only 4 houses from the beach and 1/2 block from the bay with an Ice Cream Parlor on one corner and a general store on the other. Very well qualified lifeguards on our beach 7 days a week from 10-5. The duplex is convenient for reunions or weddings or other family functions .One of the best sunsets is at the end of 80th Street where there is a bench for your comfort.

North Jersey Renter

  • 5 of 5

Super cute place, the lower level is awesome, has everything you need for a vacation, kitchen has it all.

Great screened in porch to sit outside and eat your meals or just enjoy the night without the hassle of bugs.

Beach is seconds away and just right outside your door is a BBQ with a covered picnic area. Super cute decor old school, reminds me of the summers spent w/ my family at the shore. 6 years renting from Marilyn, she is the best, always ready and willing to help or answer any of your questions. Super deal for the price.

Relaxing Getaway on LBI

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself, and our dog Kelly spent a long weekend at Marilyn's. It reminded me of the house I used to rent with my family when I was a kid back in the 70s. The place is in an excellent location. It's only 4 houses from the beach and a very short walk to the bay. Marilyn was very accommodating and helpful. We enjoyed our peaceful getaway at Marilyn's.

Post Labor Day Stay

  • 5 of 5

As advertised!

Marilyn, a most gracious and accommodating host...

Dwelling... clean, comfortable, quiet, pet-friendly, convenient beach access... did not disappoint.

Cooperative weather, less-crowded time of year... a near perfect September weekend get-away.

Enjoyable Weekend Stay

  • 4 of 5

This unit was a great place to stay for my weekend trip to LBI. I used the unit mainly for sleeping accommodations and it was perfect for that. There are two private rooms each with a queen size bed, along with a futon couch if you need extra sleeping room. There is no AC but were plenty of fans provided in the unit. Most importantly, the owner Marilyn was very responsive and helpful in allowing me to book my stay in short notice and answer any questions I had.
