ORCAS ISLAND VACATION RENTAL HOME - ASIAN MINIMALISM NEAR DOE BAY

When your tastes run to the contemporary, you’ll find this sophisticated Doe Bay cabin a jewel of design integrity (To learn about the architect's concept, go to www.archdaily/157449 - Nami an is the featured property!) Nami An has a distinctive minimal esthetic with Asian influences. This "cabin" on Doe Bay is a light-filled volume of space, created with the vision that every detail should be precise and harmonious.

The Asian theme begins when you remove your shoes and don slippers (thoughtfully 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 feel completely part of the natural atmosphere.

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 queen futon bed; shoji screens are installed to provide visual privacy for those sleeping on this upper level. _But do note that Nami An is intended for two or three adult guests to enjoy. (The sides of the stairway are open and not suitable for small children.)_

Nami An has a beautiful waterfront outlook 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, a wonderful restaurant, and clothing optional soaking tubs and sauna (a day pass can be purchased at the Resort). 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.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS HOME IS NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN UNDER 12 YEARS OF AGE. NETFLIX IS AVAILABLE THROUGH THE BLUE RAY DVD PLAYER. THE BLUE-RAY DVD PLAYER WILL RECOGNIZE AND PLAY REGULAR DVDS AS WELL AS CDS ALL THROUGH THE STEREO SET UP. THE INTERNET PROVIDER IS "DOE BAY INTERNET USER'S ASSOCIATION" IT PROVIDES A VERY QUICK AND DEPENDABLE CONNECTION.

Reviewer Comments:

The home is as described and very beautiful. Views are incredible and unobstructed. The home is very well equipped and maintained. Quiet neighborhood. Just wonderful. We'll be back. Water access is a scramble over boulders; great for tide-pooling, but not possible to put in a kayak.

Reviewer Comments:

A couple of things were slightly misrepresented... Access to the beach is difficult. No television..not a huge deal for us but tennis fans would have been dissapointed to miss Wimbledon :) Lovely setting slightly disturbed by construction next door

Owner's Response: I want to thank our guest for his review and for the relatively high ratings. Whenever we hear that a home has been misrepresented, even in minor ways, we look back at our website to see how we could be more descriptive to avoid this perception. In this case, the website does not describe the beach/water access as easy, or difficult. I would say that as water access goes in the San Juan Islands, the access in front of this home is relatively easy. However, it would not recommended for anyone with mobility challenges, as the access is over sloping rocks. The guest is correct that satellite television is not available in this home, but this is clearly and accurately described on our website. General Manager

Reviewer Comments:

Nami An was beautiful and serene. The view is spectacular, especially from the cliffs in front of the house. The home is small - best suited for a couple or small family - but it's well equipped. Nami An is on Doe Bay, which is about half an hour from Eastsound (groceries, restaurants, etc.). One note: Currently (July 2017), there's construction going on next door. We heard it only on the day we left, but it was noisy. Prospective renters may want to check with the property managers as to the status.

Very well-maintained place in a wonderfully remote location. VRBO/HomeAway made the logistics easy. Home was immaculate and nicely supplied. Hard to imagine improving on it.

Reviewer Comments:

A stunning home in a quiet location was everything we were looking for in a getaway! There were heavy storms predicted and the management company called us to make sure we were OK with still going. We decided to go and hunker down with books, movies and wine! Sadly, we packed many DVD's and there was only a BluRay player. This was a pretty big set back as we really wanted to take this time to catch up on movies. Don't pack your CD's either. If you DO have BluRay's, then you are set with what seems to be a great audio system. The TV monitor is oddly placed, so you will have to move some furniture around to watch comfortably. Great pot bellied stove, view, soaking tub, beds, linens and so much more.

Reviewer Comments:

Unfortunately, when we arrived, the house had not been cleaned and really wasn't habitable. Kyle, the agent, arranged to have a woman partially clean the house so that we could at least sleep there, and take a shower in the morning. She finished cleaning the next day when we were out. Aside from that, the house itself is beautiful, full of light, highly functional, and has a gorgeous view. It's perfectly situated on the lot. I can't say enough good things about the house. Really perfection itself. Obviously, I cannot answer some of the below questions, because of the dirty condition of the house when we arrived. However, it WAS rectified, and from then on, we had a lovely vacation. We were also VERY unhappy with VRBO for charging us a "travelers fee"($100)two days later, on top of the service charge that was already included in the original price. We won't be using VRBO again until they change this policy. that was already included in the entire price.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, Thank you for choosing to stay with us on your visit to the Islands and we appreciate your candid feedback. As soon as we were aware of the issue with the clean, we quickly worked to rectify it as you noted. And yes, the VRBO fees have become much higher than they were in the past. We recommend that guests go straight to our website to book to avoid these fees ENTIRELY; just search for Vacation Doorways of the San Juan Islands. We hope you will choose to visit us again in the near future! Best Regards, General Manager
