About Kara Arruza
Our family of five loves Emerald Isle! We can't get enough of the beach, the relaxed atmosphere of the island, and the many tasty restaurants. We're so excited to share our home with you as you make many memories with your loved ones!
Kara Arruza purchased this House in 2013
Why Kara Arruza chose Emerald Isle
This cottage is so cozy, and in our opinion, it's in the one of the best neighborhoods on the island! It's a neighborhood that's tucked away but so close and convenient to everything!
What makes this House unique
We feel comfortable having our kids walk back and forth from the house to beach because it's such a quiet, relaxed street.

The overall stay and location was great. The walk to the beach is short less than 5 mins. Everything work as listed. The couple of thing I did not give it a 5 star was the TV has basic cable, the outside shower could have walls installed to shower all the sand off or used it if you have a big party.
The carpets could use a good cleaning. The living room furniture could be re arranged so you could get a better viewing of the TV from both couches.
I would book it again.
The house is perfectly appointed - has everything you need - and is clean, bright, organized. This was our third time back! And Kara was helpful, thoughtful and prompt, as always!
We loved Summer Joy!
There’s a lot to like about this house- it was clean, comfortable, modern, and in a great location!
We could not see the beach, but we could smell it and hear it and it was a very short walk to the public access.
The master bedroom had a good size and very comfortable bed, there was ample seating in the dining and living areas, and the kitchen was well stocked with dishes, pots and pans, and appliances in good condition.
There was an outdoor shower but we were a little disappointed to find out it wasn’t an enclosed shower, but only because we love outdoor showering while we are on EI!
We think it was an excellent value and we would highly recommend it!
This house was a joy to stay in. It fit our family perfectly. The design and layout were bright, open, and comfortable. The house was clean and well kept. We appreciated the welcome binder which offered suggestions for activities and restaurants. It gave us the confidence to try something new. The beach was a short walk and was absolutely gorgeous. It was not crowded at all. We happily used the games and puzzles provided as well. This house allowed us to slow down, relax, and enjoy time together as a family. We didn't want to leave. Thanks for sharing your home with us!
Thank you for staying - we're so glad you enjoyed your visit! I'm so happy you enjoyed the house, beach and games and puzzles. Please come stay again!
We had a wonderful stay at Summer Joy. The house itself is great. Very clean, bright and functional. It had everything we needed. It’s only a few minutes walk to the beach with easy beach access and very close to everything Emerald Isle has to offer. Easy to get to Swanboro as well. The owner Kara was great at communicating with us. We would absolutely stay again and highly recommend this property.
Cozy, comfortable, bright and close to beach.
We we're close to beach and bike path at this beautiful home. Our family had a fun time. The house was perfect for us because it was clean, bright, comfortable. We enjoyed the huge windows and deck. We sat on deck at night and could see the stars. The outdoor shower and hose we're great to have after day at beach.
This cottage is in a great location - we think it's the best location on the whole island! The street is tucked away in a quiet neighborhood, but you are within 3 walking minutes to the beach. The house is also close to great restaurants, the town, the bike path, the sound, the pier, and the grocery store.
