About Us


Orange pillow with white heart and cursive "This Is Good Living" written in blue ink on the heartWith over 25 years of experience, the founders of Peak Suites know temporary and corporate living in the Raleigh Durham area very well. Temporary living is not just a box that you put things in, and call it a Corporate Apartment. It is an experience of all five senses. Whether you need a firm mattress, hypo-allergenic sheets, or a specific appliance to cook with, Peak Suites is not here to tell you how to live, but rather we are here to help make your living experience the most comfortable and positively memorable as possible.

Peak Suites is not a one size fits all solution. We take a customized approach, realizing that every Customer has their own story and their own needs. We listen, we evaluate, and we approach a solution that best fits the needs of each individual we work with. Our ongoing effort to strive to be better relies on Customer Feedback. Our desire to continuously innovate the booking and living process is what drives us to the Peak of Success. This is the foundation of Peak Suites. This is GOOD living!
