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.

Panoramic views from Coos Bay
Well, we just returned from our extended holiday along the gorgeous California and Oregon coasts and our stay in Coos Bay was a definite highlight of the journey. John and Candy have a beautiful, spacious home that easily and comfortably accommodated the eight of us. The living room, kitchen, deck and bedrooms all afford spectacular panoramic views of Charleston, lower Coos Bay and the South Slough. It made for the perfect jumping off point for us to explore the nearby Sunset Bay State and Cape Arago State Parks, as well as some of the local golfing opportunities. The kids had a blast learning how to sandboard and the ladies enjoyed the many local antique shops. A sandwich at the Alder Smokehouse is also not to be missed if your schedule permits.
Communication was always very easy at every stage of making the reservation and during the stay. As a bonus, John and Candy have decorated their home with many interesting mementos of their extensive travels around the globe. The kids were particularly fascinated by the many exotic locales depicted and I wouldn't be surprised if this exposure didn't inspire additional explorations in their futures.
All in all, the Chatts were very gracious hosts and we would highly recommend their property to anyone planning a stay in the area.
Perfect get away
Well kept and stocked place with a perfect view and easy access to a variety of activities. Nice hosts and neighbors.
Awesome home and view
Fantastic home and owners. Highly recommended.
Great for the whole family
We had 9 people (6 adults and 3 children) staying for a family vacation (3 generations) and had a blast!! The view of the bay is gorgeous; we sat on the back deck for hours just looking and watching the harbor. The house is great with a bedroom wing and a living wing! There was even a big enough table to seat the family while we played games! Definitely recommend this rental!!
Great location to see the Coos Bay area
From the warm inviting home, spectacular view and gracious owners our too short stay was awesome. We love the area and doing all we could each day but the comfort of this home each evening and night was most appreciated. The kitchen, living room and backyard are more than you could ask for.
Thank you John and Candy!
Great Times at Bay Cove
This was our 4th stay at Bay Cove. We like crabbing off the docks at Charleston Bay, which is about a five minute drive from the house. They have everything you need for boiling up the crabs when you get back to the house. Great views of the bay and ocean from the large picture view windows, and great deck to relax on. Everything you need is in the house, great TV in the living room with Blu-ray player and fast Wi-Fi. Beds are comfy with TVs in the bedroom. Two casinos in town(we like the Mill Casino). Have not had a bad stay yet, the owners are great and almost like family now. Looking forward to returning soon!
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.
