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, teh 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!

Peace Pleasure Perfect

  • 5 of 5
Peace Cove is a deeply relaxing and rejuvenating setting. It is both warm and aesthetically beautiful. We felt at home and inspired by our surroundings inside and out. I have booked many VRBO homes. This one stands out due to the attention to detail and the welcoming nature of the owners. There are little signs throughout the house that both inform and charm. We constantly felt the generosity of spirit throughout Peace Cove. Karen has hit the perfect balance of the comfort of home and the amenities of a resort.

Our teen girls loved reading and giggling together in the Nest. We happily spent our days sitting around the kitchen table or in one of the many comfy gathering spots, walking up the country road, or exploring Point Lobos and Carmel. I can't imagine anyone not being very pleased with a stay at Peace Cove.

Son's Wedding in Carmel/Reception at the Highlands Inn

Son's Wedding in Carmel/Reception at the Highlands Inn
  • 5 of 5
Our son's wedding reception was at the Highlands Inn and this was absolutely the perfect location for our group of 8. Everyone had comfortable beds and plenty of private space. With three full bathrooms, we all had no trouble getting ready on wedding day. The house was immaculate, roomy, well appointed with interesting decor and has beautiful views. The young adults especially enjoyed sitting out around the firepit in the evenings. The owner, Karen, was very helpful, communicative and went out of her way to make us feel welcome and special. Definitely a jewel and a place I would recommend and return to again. Thank you for sharing such a lovely place!

Rest and Revive

  • 5 of 5
Peace Cove is a balm for the soul, a poem of a property. My young daughters and I arrived with hopes of freeing our minds of day-to-day routines and cares. We got much, much more: privacy and quiet, restorative ocean and forest views, beautiful and comfortable bedrooms ideal for both naps and deep slumber, a fun kitchen that rang with our laughter, delicious nights in an atmospheric dining room, and gooey fun before the outdoor fireplace where we made s'mores nightly. The girls actually laid down their electronics in favor of hide-and-seek and beach walks...a modern miracle. We intend to return again and again. I cannot wait to introduce our extended family to Peace Cove and make staying there a family tradition.

Christmas in Carmel

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 10 stayed here for the week of Christmas and just loved it. The owners had lights up for Christmas and special touches to give us the feeling of the season. We enjoyed lots of extras like wine and chocolate candy, wood for the outdoor fire pit, fluffy warm bedding, and gorgeous sunsets. They provided all the condiments and more: cereal, snacks, juice, coffee, in addition to shampoo, conditioner, and lotion in their upgraded bathrooms. When the handle on the toilet broke, they promptly fixed it. Their comfortable home is centrally located and it was easy to see all the popular sights in the area. We all would like to come back here someday soon.

Perfect Corporate Retreat!

  • 5 of 5
Can't say enough about this place, it was spectacular! Immaculately presented, all the creature comforts were thought about, including everything needed for the cozy fire pit. This was the prefect destination for my team's strategy offsite. Plenty of room, great views, fresh air, and only minutes to world class dining in Carmel (if you decide not to cook). It was fun, productive and bonding. Very secluded, vista from the outdoor fire pit was incredible. We enjoyed it into the early morning hours. I will be going back with my family!

Wonderful vacation home in an amazing setting!

  • 5 of 5
This was my first experience with VRBO and I was a little apprehensive at first, but I decided to go with the other reviews I saw for this property. I must say the photos here do not do any justice to the beauty of this lovely home and the location. It's situated perfectly on top of a hill overlooking the pacific, close enough to Carmel (5 mins drive) and even with a Hyatt property nearby it feels completely isolated and peaceful. The house itself is decorated with a lot of attention and it feels just like the home you need in the woods - rustic but yet with all amenities. The kitchen was stocked with almost everything we needed to cook a meal (except ofcourse the perishables). I had a lot of plans to visit the places nearby and hike in Big Sur, but this home made me spend more time indoors and I want to come back soon, and enjoy a longer vacation.

Will definitely come back!
