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.

The house is well-equipped with amazing views and natural light (it's very bright with only one room that gets kinda dark). The only area for improvement is the beds - while the futon is high-quality, I would have preferred a real mattress/bed, especially for a longer stay.
I highly recommend this house!
