"This is really a great deal in a nice big house and a great location in Coos Bay. Pros: 1) Big, private, fenced house, lots of sleeping space, has a family feel. 2) Air hockey table for kids/adults, plus good movie selection, PS2 downstairs (we didn't use this). 3) Lots of windows, and great view of the Coos Bay bridge. Cons: 1) No water access from the house. We walked north a little ways and found a trail leading to the water, but it was all mud/swampy anyway, so we stayed on the shore. Do not think of this house as a water recreation house. 2) Indoor hot tub water was dirty with various floaties so we didn't venture in, not a big deal b/c it was summer anyway. Other: 1) The 2 best lighthouses in the area are Cape Blanco (beautiful location) to the south and Umpqua River Lighthouse to the north (also visit at night to see the beautiful red/white light streaming out). 2) You can get crab/seafood in Charleston, just across the bridge on your right. 3) Charleston also has great day trip parks and a botanical garden. The locals like to use one of the beaches there, so it must be the best beach area."Guest: TB or not TB Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: August 19, 2014View listing

"We had a great weekend at this home. The weather was typical Oregon cloudy, so we spent more time indoors than we would have on a sunny day. The house was clean and spacious. The layout was fascinating and atypical which made it fun - plus all the great toys in the game room were a bonus for my grown kids - and yes, be prepared to duck, but that was no big deal for us even for the over 6' ers; sometimes different is inspiring. The kitchen is spacious which was great for group cooking and the table was plenty big for the six of us as was the seating in the living room. Our dogs loved the back yard and we appreciated the opportunity to bring them along. Casey was very responsive to all our questions - someone had stolen the HDMI cords, he had the housekeeper bring one right over. All in all it was perfect for our needs."Guest: Shelley Date of Stay: September 2014 Review Submitted: September 10, 2014View listing
