About Anika Shaw
For many generations our families enjoyed coming to Orcas Island for vacations. In the early 90’s we decided to build a home and raise our family here. We had 5 homeschooled kids who loved having the beach as their classroom and doing their part in helping build our home. If you look closely you will notice some creative touches that they added to the house! We are now empty nesters and have moved on to a smaller home in the woodland area of Orcas. We are excited to share The Nest with other families. We love tourists because they see our island with fresh eyes and are awed by the beauty all around us. Hundreds of times I have heard people exclaim, "I don't know how you get any dishes washed here, I would just stand and stare out this kitchen window all day!" Our daughter, Anika, recently moved back to the island to raise her family and is thrilled to be managing her childhood home.

Had a great time on the island! The house worked great for the 10 of us.
Amazing family home with beautiful views and sunsets
Great pride of ownership! Clean, well stocked, comfortable and beautiful. We would come back again. Love Orcas Island.
Great home with all the necessities covered and an unbeatable view. We loved our evening sunsets! Our group didn’t have any kids but it has everything you would want to keep the littles entertained.
