Doe Bay house description

Nami An-If your tastes run to the contemporary, you’ll find Nami An to be a welcome change from the whimsical Pottery Barn clutter that characterizes many Orcas Island vacation homes!

In contrast, Nami An has a distinctive minimal esthetic with Asian influences. Our 'cabin' on Doe Bay is a light-filled volume of space, created with the vision that every detail should be precise and harmonious. (We don't mean to boast, but our architect has been recognized by a number of architecural and design magazines for his work on Nami An.)

The Asian theme begins when you remove your shoes and don slippers (provided,) to tread lightly on the bamboo floors. Furnishings are sleek and contemporary; shoji screens take the place of swinging doors. Bathing is a special experience as well - you’ll step up to sink down into a deep Japanese soaking tub. One side of the shower is a glass wall with a view into a small fenced garden.There’s even an outdoor shower in this courtyard where you can dust off in the great outdoors.

The main level of the home encompasses the bathing room and powder room, a well-equipped kitchen with paperstone counters, the dining area, and a bedroom with a floating queen-size futon bed. Upstairs, there's an open loft with an additional bed and a folded futon; shoji screens are installed to provide visual privacy for those sleeping on this upper level. But do note that Nami An is primarily an adult home. (The sides of the stairway are open, not a good idea for small children.)

Nami An looks out to the beautiful waterfront where nature abounds. Complete privacy is provided to the left of the home by a wooded area that attracts deer, eagles, and rabbits. The two neighboring homes to the right may be screened from view with the use of window shades and shoji screens.

Forward of the home, there is a cleared path that leads to a rocky outcrop at the shoreline. When the water recedes in low tide, you can clamber along the waterside and study the wide diversity of sea creatures left behind in the pockets of the rocks.

Nami An has a great location on the sunny southeastern tip of Orcas Island, within a short walk of Doe Bay Resort where there's a convenience store, post office, kayak rentals, and good restaurant. It's a 15 minute drive to Olga and Moran State Park (super hiking!), about 30 minutes from Eastsound Village where there are lots of shops and dining, and a 45 minute drive from the Orcas Ferry Landing.

Our home is cared for by a locally-based rental management company. They are on call if you need help, and will take care of all your booking details, including payment.
