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.

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.

Super clean with an unbeatable view
I have never been in a house so spotlessly clean! Everything was sparkling and in great working order. John and Candy were there to greet us and provided instant help when there was a problem with the wifi. The appliances were modern and the electronics were top of the line. They provided great amenities including a coffee pot and TV in every bedroom and the view is truly spectacular.
The only downsides to this property are the furniture - the couch and beds were well-loved and lumpy - and the proximity to a busy highway. The best bed in the house was the new one in the "den" off of the living room. It had the added benefit of being farthest from the road so provided the best night's sleep for one of us. For these reasons, I gave a 4-star rather than 5-star review.
Overall, the cleanliness, the location (that view!) and the gracious hosts made for a lovely time. We just would have liked a little more comfort for our old bones.
We are so glad you enjoyed our home, but so sorry our beds did not meet your satisfaction. We have had over 700 reviews on our rentals, on this and other sites, all with similar beds and have never had anyone unsatisfied with their comfort.
We also rent bedrooms, and usually guests rave over the comfort and say they had their best sleep ever! We do know our sofa has seen its days, and we are in the process of replacing it.
Spectacular! Beautiful, spacious home. Generous helpful hosts. Perfect location.
This is a great home for a family gathering. The kitchen is VERY well stocked, and plenty big to accommodate multiple helpers. John and Candy are very welcoming and very knowledgeable. This is a six star place. Large rooms, very comfortable beds, and great spaces to socialize inside and out. We highly recommend a stay here, we will be back!
Paradise on the bay
What an amazing house! Absolutely everything we could have needed was there for us- they even brought over a walker for my Papa when they realized he was having trouble getting around. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking, and labeled to make everything easy to find. Papa had a great time watching the birds and boats with the binoculars by the windows, and Oma loved the deer mama and baby that liked to eat corn right out in the backyard. We felt at home, and everyone had enough space to spread out which helped with four generations of family traveling together. The only thing we didn’t enjoy was having to leave! It’s a great place if you’re headed to Coos Bay!
Everything we needed and more. We wete very comfortable there. The owner's were very friendly .
Great view of the Charleston fishing village. Our granddaughter love going down to beach close by.visited all the local State Parks within a few miles. Such a beautiful area. Even saw a Quail family come in the back yard and a seal trying to steal the crabbers bait over at the boat harbor. It was very foggy, but only had to drive a few miles inland to find the sun. Great Spot.
This lovely, very clean home was a great choice for my out of town wedding guests. They loved the view, the special touches.
Property is in great shape and has everything you need to enjoy the bay, the boats and the sunsets!
Great property and right on the bay. Very close to stores, clamming, beaches and good restaurants. House is set up with all you need to cook and enjoy both inside and outside. Hosts are great people and very knowledgable of the area and things to do! We will be back!
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.
