Overview

About the property

Clean and cozy, 550 sq. ft cottage with kitchenette, laundry, view from patio.

Bay Cove Cottage A is one side of a rustic 1940s cottage duplex. It is a clean and cozy, brightly colored, 550 sq ft apartment with one bedroom and a fold-out couch in the living room. The kitchen and bathroom with shower are simple, and retain original vintage character. There is no stove or oven, but a microwave, skillet, a portable single burner rangette, for preparation of simple meals, and a small refrigerator are provided in the kitchen. The vintage bathroom is small, with no tub and the shower has a small entry (16 inches wide). We are offering the cottages as the budget option of Bay Cove properties and offer few amenities. Cable TV is provided, wifi is available throughout, there is a full-sized refrigerator with ice maker, and a coin-operated laundry service in a separate room in the duplex. Cottage A is the side of the duplex next to Cape Arago Hwy, and has more road noise than Cottage B. There is no bay view from the apartment, but a small backyard and a small patio with fire pit are available for a spectacular view of the bay and Charleston harbor. A laundry room with tall table and chairs offers great bay views while enjoying coffee or a glass of wine, when the weather is not suitable for patio use. The owner's residence is nearby, on the same lot as the cottages, and may also be rented. We can direct you to easy bayshore access that requires a 500 foot walk along Cape Arago Hwy., or other easy bay access for clamming or crabbing within short driving distances.

About John and Candy Chatt

We are a retired couple, John a federal wildlife biologist, Candy a swim coach and airline employee, and both former Nebraska farmers.

We consider ourselves adventurous, spontaneous, budget travelers and love meeting new people to share travel experiences.

Why John and Candy Chatt chose Coastal Oregon

We have lived in the immediate area since moving to Coos Bay from Corvallis in 1999. We recently moved into a home that we thought would be a perfect place to share with others in beautiful Charleston, on the southern coast of Oregon. We enjoy outdoor activities, birdwatching, hiking, kayaking and just observing the wonders of nature.

What makes this cottage unique

We felt fortunate to happen across this wonderful part of our country, the best overall climate we have ever encountered, fresh air, and plenty of room to wander to our heart's content, without the hustle and bustle found in so many other places. We love the diversity of habitats in the area and the associated diversity of bird species that are regularly seen. The views and solitude of walking on a private beach provide a never ending source of enjoyment and relaxation. We felt even more fortunate to have the opportunity to acquire additional similar property within 500 feet of our home. We always considered this property as having great potential as a vacation rental, and now we are trying to make that dream come true.

Very nice little cottage

  • 5 of 5

It was the perfect place to stay while we attended a wedding at Shores Acres. John and Candy were wonderful host. Meeting us when we got there. They have it decorated so cute and comfortable. They have anything you would need while staying there. They make sure to let you know if you need anything else to give them a call. Would love to go back just to relax and take advantage of their offer to help dig clams and catch crabs.

We will recommend anyone we know to stay here.

Everything was great!

What a lovely place to stay and what lovely people to be our hosts. They bent over backwards to help us out with some problems we had. We enjoyed the extra room and comfort that our cabin offered. It was a good choice for us.

Homey, retro, laid-back vibe. Right on the bay, quiet fishing village with great food a few minutes away. Wish we could stay longer...great parks and ocean views​ to explore.

Super nice property with great owners!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very nice, clean and perfect for 2 adults and 2 young ladies. The bathroom/shower is small but very doable. John and Candy are extremely kind and generous and provides a great experience including the crabbing. Location is central to the main attractions in the area. We will be back and highly recommend this VBRO.

Lovely Small Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place to stay. Enough technology to keep my teen entertained and the perfect place for me to relax and work on my hobby photography. Very close to all the beaches I love and great restaurants!

Very enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

Three adults, one close family, stayed for 3 nights in Cottage A. It was small, comfortable, very clean and had everything we needed. We used the outdoor grill for creating fabulous dinners and loved the setting and its closeness to Sunset Bay, Shore Acres and Cape Arago. We enjoyed the South slough Estuary hikes, too. We'd stay there again.

We love the breathtaking views in the area, including from our small patio. Charleston is an authentic fishing village and the entire area remains an unspoiled gem on the Oregon Coast. The area is a bird watching paradise for shorebirds and seabirds, as well as other species in the diverse habitat in the area. Harbor seals and sea lions are abundant and easily seen throughout the area. Whale watching is popular from several scenic points along Cape Arago Hwy, and the Shore Acres Formal Flower Gardens and holiday light display, scenic coastal hiking trails, and tide pools, are popular attractions, along with spectacular wave watching during winter storms. Our location is on on the bay near the beginning of the South Slough National Estuarine Reserve, and we can assist you with advice, maps, and tide info for a great kayak adventure into the Slough. Enjoy a relaxing golf game at nearby Sunset Bay Golf course (7 minutes away) or travel 19 miles to the world famous Bandon Dunes courses. Crabbing and clamming is available from the docks and the mudflats, and we would be glad to to provide a crab trap or a bucket and shovel for clamming along with a few pointers, and maybe even a demonstration to get you started.
