About Barbara Gimlin, Owner

I am a biologist and am self-employed as an environmental consultant. I enjoy sailing, skiing, bicycling, hiking, and just about anything outdoors. I'm happy to share local knowledge on where and how to dig your own clams or catch your own crabs. I enjoy meeting travelers passing through the area and strive to make their time in the Coos Bay area extra special.

I have had rentals for the past 20 years and even ran a small side Bed and Breakfast for several years out of our house in Girdwood, Alaska from 1995-1999. In Coos Bay, I have converted several of my rentals to furnished vacation rentals.

Barbara Gimlin, Owner purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Barbara Gimlin, Owner chose Southern Coast

The apartment is located in a house built in 1912 on historic 5th Street in Coos Bay. It's a historic residential street lined with large old homes that are beautifully kept. It is walking distance (7-8 blocks) to many restaurants in Coos Bay, along with the boardwalk, art museum, pubs, and the historic Egyptian Theatre.


5th Street is one of the original residential streets in Coos Bay and is largely composed of grand homes built in the late 1800s/early 1900s. It is not a through street, so traffic is minimal. There are large trees and residents in the area frequently use the street for walks. It is 7-8 blocks from downtown Coos Bay (walking distance).

Second time we've stayed in one of Barbara's apartments. Great location, close to town, apartment had everything we needed and Barbara is so fast to communicate! We again were welcomed with farm fresh eggs and a homemade treat to enjoy, loved that! Thanks Barbara! We will be back.

Lovely place in a convenient location

Barb's apartment was perfect for our visit to Coos Bay. It was clean, spacious and just as described. The neighborhood was quiet and we were walking distance to downtown, restaurants, and groceries. Barb provided clear and timely communication. I recommend this to anyone visiting Coos Bay.

Pleasant stay

  • 5 of 5

I am very thankful that I found this vacation rental during my stay in Coos Bay. I really appreciated the prompt communication that the owner gave me. She was professional, caring and she made our short stay so worry free. The rental was cozy and well furnished. The bed was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in on vacation. I can't say enough positive about my stay. I will use
