About the property

Three Bedroom, 2.5 Bath, Sleeps 8+, Large Kitchen, Open-Living Area View Home

Bay Cove is a large 1970s home, with open-living space, and all the basic needs of a vacation rental. We continue to improve this simple, spacious, clean and comfortable home for the enjoyment of our guests. There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms in one wing of the home, and a huge kitchen and large living room with attached den that becomes a fourth bedroom. All beds are new and comfortable, and there are couches for potential additional sleeping in the living room. The incredible views and the private beach and natural areas available a short walk away are fun for everyone. There is a small two-cottage duplex on the same property which is rented separately, and the owners often live in one side of the duplex. There is a deck attached to the house, and also a small patio with fire pit, shared with the nearby cottages, available when weather conditions are right for campfires. The house, deck, backyard and small shared patio are all available for a spectacular view of the bay or enjoying the beautiful lights of Charleston harbor. 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 of less than one mile.

Spacious with a great view!

  • 5 of 5

This is our favorite house to rent in Charleston. The view of the harbor is awesome and we are close to crabbing and Shore Acres.

We were traveling with 2 of our children and 3 grandchildren. The great separation of bedrooms from the living room and kitchen allowed the baby to sleep while the rest of us did our thing.

Candy and John are fantastic hosts providing great information about the area and always a smile.

We will definitely stay here again!

Very clean, huge property! Perfect for a family gathering and outstanding views!

  • 5 of 5

It's like staying at your mom's (or Grandma's depending on your age)! Fun retro feel to parts of the house and big, beautiful bedrooms. Extremely well stocked kitchen. John was a pleasure to work with and so accommodating to some accidental last minute requests. He also made sure we knew all the great spots to check out in the area. Highly recommend this place, don't hesitate to book it. If you have very young children, the cliff is high so you will need to be outside with them and there are knickknacks you will need to put up out of reach.

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 we love meeting new people and sharing travel experiences. We also enjoy all outdoor activities including: birdwatching, kayaking, and just observing the wonders of nature.

John and Candy Chatt purchased this house in 2014

Why John and Candy Chatt chose Coos Bay

We have lived in this immediate area since moving to Coos Bay from Corvallis in 1999. We recently acquired this property just 500 feet from our previous home, and we feel this is the perfect property that seemed designed for a vacation rental near Charleston, on the beautiful southern coast of Oregon.

What makes this house 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 of so many other places. We love the diversity of habitat and the associated diversity of bird species that are regularly seen. We also enjoy observing the every-changing dynamics of the bay and shoreline. The views and solitude of walking on a private beach provide a never-ending source of enjoyment and relaxation.

Car: recommended

We love the breathtaking views in the area, including from our home, backyard, and deck. Charleston is an authentic fishing village and the entire area remains an unspoiled gem on the Oregon Coast. The area is a birdwatching 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 tidepools, are popular attractions, along with spectacular wave watching during winter storms. Our location is 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 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.
