We were drawn to the Coos Bay area because of the beauty of the varying landscape from the wooded hillsides to the beautiful tree lined dunes and beaches and for the vast amount of outdoor activities available that put you in the middle of all that beauty. Our family enjoys the beaches, quad riding, horseback riding, fishing and hunting, boating, and relaxed atmosphere that the Coos Bay area offers. We purchased this home as a primary residence so that our family could live in the area that they loved to play in.
The Owner purchased this chateau / country house in 2005
As a result of a career change, we moved away from the area. We thought that people would enjoy this peacefull location as much as we do and decided to turn it into a vacation rental. By doing this we would also be able to return and enjoy our house for family vacations.
Wild birds, chipmonks and deer that visit. Sounds of the seals and fog bouy.
This house was fantastic! It was very clean, had so many amenities, such as games, grill, foosball, basketball hoop, fire pit (perfect for s'mores and night time gatherings) and all the kitchen necessities you need. It is located on a quiet wooded lot, perfect for sitting out on the amazing fully wrapped-around porch and taking secluded walks. It is definitely the perfect “get away from it all” retreat for families or couples. Russ, the owner was very responsive to our phone calls and emails, prior to and throughout our stay. This is a hidden gem….so much better than staying in a hotel! We were beyond impressed with the quality of the rental and will definitely book again!
Shhhhh. Don't tell anyone about this Gem. But seriously, we have enjoyed staying here multiple times and will continue to enjoy this great place for future retreats. There is plenty of room for boats, cars, etc... It's very private and peaceful and only minutes away from the Charleston harbor. We put the boat in the huge garage until we are ready to fish or crab. We always go with friends as this home would easily accommodate 3 couples (families) or more. Everything you need is there, the kitchen is fully stocked and they even offer up the use of their crab pots, cooker and clamming shovels/rakes. Russell and Janeen have always made the stay very welcoming.
Property owner was very hard to get a hold of once he had my payment. The home is located just down the street from a closed dump station. The master bathroom shower/tub is not solid underneath - the floor sinks when you move. There are posted notes and signs EVERYWHERE that state all of the things they don't want you to do (repeatedly), it makes it very hard to relax. Internet only worked during certain hours. The worst part was that the owner was a crook - he retained part of my deposit because I left the comforters off the beds after I stripped the sheets to put the sheets in the laundry room (per instruction - I even started a couple of loads for them). He stated that it took his house cleaner 9 hours to iron the comforters. He also claimed that there was sand in the bed (which was stripped - go figure) and on the kitchen floor when we never went to the beach. I was livid about the entire situation and debated about taking him to court over the principle of the matter but decided that he wasn't worth any more of my time. I was very disappointed in my experience, especially after reading the previous reviews - all I can think is that due to the time period between the last review and mine is that the owner has changed. I could go on and on about my frustration regarding the situation but I will instead finish with a warning - the owner seemed very pleasant (even told me a negative story about the previous renter in a way to make the owner seem tolerant) until he had my money. BEWARE of using this rental!!! The owner has no integrity.
This is an amazing vacation home, better then it was describe, it has everything you need or want. Very nice , peacefull, lots of deer, Nice location, close to everything, beach, restaurants, town, etc.
Lots a room to roam, The owners were great. We had a great time.
Thank you Russell and Janeen for sharing your home.
This property was very clean, roomy, modern and peaceful. Though we spent most of our time in Coos Bay with family, it was great to escape to the quiet of the country and just sit out on the deck with a cup of coffee. Would have loved to have stayed longer, but had to get back to work and school.
Janeen, it was great talking to you! Thanks for sharing your property.
