Carmel Highlands House Rental Photos and Description

Rustic Home On 1 Acre W/ Panoramic Ocean & Highland Views. Sleeps 4 To 14.

Relaxed & casual. Rustic with a quirky charm – Peace Cove is a great place to meet with friends and family in one of the most beautiful spots on the California Coast.

Peace Cove sits on a bluff in the Carmel Highlands perched above rocky seashores with stunning views of Point Lobos and ocean sunsets. 4 miles south of Carmel-by-the-Sea, and on your way to Big Sur, it is the perfect place to stay and explore Monterey Bay, Carmel Valley, & the Big Sur Coastline!

It is also the ideal solution for extended family & friends' accommodations when you plan your next celebration at the Highlands Inn.

Sleeps from 4 & max 13. We recommend mid-size groups of 4-10.

* Dining Room with Fireplace & ambiance.

* Visitors will enjoy Peace Cove's privacy and sense of freedom; one sees private stunning & expansive views of nature.

* The house is comfortable and the feeling is rustic, like a spacious cabin. Air conditioning is opening the windows and doors. The lifestyle is closer to nature with homespun comforts.

The beauty of its natural setting combined with easy convenience makes Peace Cove the perfect vacation retreat to enjoy in groups! Share happy moments together with family & friends, be it a reunion, vacation, wedding, or simply a memorable getaway. We hope that you love Peace Cove as much as we do.

Why Karen & Patrick Suel chose Carmel Highlands

Patrick is from Sanary, France; Karen is from the Bay Area. Having grown up on the French Riviera, and the California Coast, we both have a deep love for the ocean and nature. On a short vacation & exploration, while driving past Carmel on the way to Big Sur, we both fell in love with the Carmel Highlands. It was our dream place - plain & simple. Somehow the magic of this area - it is magical you will see.. is healing and simply deeply moving. The coast just south of Carmel is pristine and for us, the most beautiful place on earth! When we found Peace Cove, we could see that the house was in need of work, however we loved the site, its orientation, and with the background sound of waves and distant seals barking, we imagined the stone path and secret garden we would create. Hummingbirds came close and hovered near us, the Monarchs flew around us, the giant squirrel that lives in the canyon visited, the crows observed us from the giant pine tree & oak. We felt we had a welcoming party! For us, there is something deeply healing about the area in general and this place in particular. You can be stiller, you can think more clearly, you can feel deeply, and you can leave feeling filled with light and pure energy..

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful experience at Peace Cove. The house was very well suited for our large party, 7 folks with the need for 4 separate sleeping areas. The house was immaculate and everything we could want had been anticipated. It felt much like staying in a 5-star property as there was everything from welcome goodies to bath amenities, extra towels, blankets. Even things like binoculars to enjoy the ocean view, a docking station for our own music, current magazines. These special little touches made our stay so enjoyable. We did not want to leave when our check-out day came along....

The bedrooms were just perfect for our mixed party: grandparents, ourselves with kids and uncle. The kitchen and eat-in area was a perfect setting for some fun breakfasts. The dining room was extremely cozy and welcoming; we spent many evening hours there, just talking and enjoying family dinners. The 2 living rooms were more than enough space for all of us and were another perfect place to hang out, relax and enjoy the fabulous ocean view and sunsets.

One night we barbequed on the front deck and then enjoyed s'mores by the outdoor fireplace. There were plenty of blankets to curl up in fireside.



Karen was very responsive to a couple questions we had and immediately got back to us with specific answers. An extremely attentive host, Karen masters the art of hospitality. We are planning to make Peace Cove our yearly family reunion spot!

Soul food

Peace Cove was everything we had hoped for and more. From the minute we arrived for our girls weekend, we felt ourselves relax and unwind with the welcoming, wonderful home and stunning views of the Pacific Ocean. We so appreciated the attention to details from fresh flowers, awesome coffee and tea bar, sheets like butter, and homey touches throughout the house. It was hard to leave and we can't wait to come back again. Thank you Karen and Patrick for your warm hospitality.

Absolutely delightful in every way

  • 5 of 5

I celebrated my 30th birthday here with my girlfriend and 5 other close friends, and it was absolutely incredible. The setting of the house, the attention to detail, the friendliness and warmth of the hosts, and everything in between made Peace Cove one of the best homes I've stayed at. Make sure you catch a sunset or two. Divine.

Perfect Stay - Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

We have never stayed at a home with more thought put into it, than Peace Cove. We were blown away by all of the touches Karen and Patrick have put into their home. Fresh flowers in every room, fully stocked cabinets and fridge with food and snacks, a welcome gift of wine and cheese, plus all the other normal amenities you would imagine staying at a hotel. The location of the home is ideal with stunning ocean views. The way the house is laid out is perfect for 3 couples or 2 families. Lots of space to move around and have your own space, while also having great areas to hang together. The front deck is an ideal place to gather around the fire with views of the ocean. We would HIGHLY recommend this house to anyone who is looking for a getaway in this area. Thank you again Karen and Patrick! We will be back!

Birthday weekend

  • 5 of 5

My only reservation is that there are really only 2 bedrooms and 2 low ceilinged lofts. The house is charming and well located and the view and fire pit are great. It is well kept, clean and comfortable. We had a wonderful time.

Our group of 10 had a great long weekend at Peace Cove. The accommodations were perfect for us. We enjoyed the beautiful sunset each evening with a fire on the patio. Would highly recommend for family reunions, girl's or couples getaway!
