Portside Vacation Rental


At the mouth of Coos Bay, just one mile inside the harbor entrance, lies the small fishing village of Charleston. With the safest bar on the Oregon Coast, Charleston is home to a large commercial fishing fleet and is one of the largest recreational boating centers on the coast. You can enjoy seafood in one of our fine restaurants, go charter fishing, rent tackle to fish or crab off the docks, or dig for clams. Enjoy a relaxing stroll along the docks and admire the various sea-going vessels. Only minutes away, visit "Sunset Bay", "Shore Acres", "Coos Head", or "Cape Arago."
