About Sara Pearson

We are opera singers, and I bet you don't hear that every day! In the summers, our 'off season,' we love to travel and enjoy the great outdoors. During the hectic opera season, we enjoy the peace and quiet of our home, which we lovingly call 'Seek Solace.' We hope you will enjoy being our guests!

Sara Pearson purchased this house in 2006

Why Sara Pearson chose Teaneck

We work in Manhattan, and love the city and all it has to offer. But, after a full day of opera, we crave peace and quiet. That's why we chose this neighborhood and this house. It's close to the city, either by transit or by car, so we can manage the short commute even with our busy schedule, but it's away from the hustle and bustle of the city that never sleeps. It truly is the best of both worlds.

What makes this house unique

In addition to it's location, our favorite feature of this property is the gardens, both in front and back. We love to have dinner outside as often as we can, enjoying the flowers and relaxing to the sound of birds and crickets.

Very nice home in a safe and welcoming neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

Very good experience. Perfect for our first time in the city. Was able to come back at night to a regular neighborhood instead of the noise and hustle of city. Owners were very accommodating.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

There was so much sleeping space and elbow room in this charming home. We loved the neighborhood as well! Perfect location for quick airport access, quick jaunts into the city, as well as upper state. There's a Trader Joe's about 5 minutes away!

Lovely home in an excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I with our adult son stayed at this property for approximately two months. The home is exactly as pictured with beautiful gardens. Cedar lane, which is the main Avenue is a short walk/drive away with lots of very nice places to eat as well as the famous Bischoffs Ice Cream parlor which we frequently visited! The Jitney service on Route 4 is awesome. They run a few minutes apart and gets you to any of the three malls (Riverside Square, Bergen Mall and Garden State Mall) within minutes! Commuting to New York City was a breeze. Our Hosts were great and would send us text messages to see if we needed anything. We highly recommend staying at this property! We would absolutely return if our travels take us to New Jersey in the future. Thank you Rick and Sara for having us in your beautiful home.

All the comforts of home are made available

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to NJ for a wedding with my parents and our 3 children. This home met all of our needs: fully stocked kitchen and cooking materials available, large bedrooms with closets, and 1.5 bathrooms, perfect TV room for the kids with gaming, and all the little extras you need while traveling. It truly feels like a home away from home.

The love the owners have for their home is evident. It's nicely decorated and the gardens are stunning. The front and backyard are gorgeous and make a perfect background for pictures or a serene escape.

The neighborhood is great and very safe. Beautiful homes and landscapes line the street and make for nice walks. The highway is very close by making it easy to get to NY and other towns in NJ. Many shops and restaurants are nearby.

Overall a perfect stay and the owners went above and beyond in accommodating us including our early arrival. Thank you!

Lovely Place

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect rental house to get away and relax for a vacation. Richard was very helpful with all our needs and made sure our stay was incident free. The neighborhood was quiet, and the drive to NYC and other places was manageable. We enjoyed the antique figurines and sculptures around the house, and just felt very homie. If we every took another vacation to NYC, we would definitely choose this place again.
