About Susan Gudgell

We have been on Orcas Island for many decades (in fact Wally grew up here!), so know the island well. We can suggest not only popular travel adventures, but little know gems on island backroads.

Susan Gudgell purchased this condo in 2012

Why Susan Gudgell chose Orcas Island

We purchased this property for love of the historic Porter Building, located next door. For years this portion was vacant, occupied by a parking lot and dumpsters. We dreamed of beautifying the shoreline, dedicating a beach access to the public and building stairs to the water. At last we've completed our vision with the 'Main Street Station.' SeaStar Lofts allows us to welcome travelers to our favorite place in the world.

What makes this condo unique

Sipping coffee or a glass of wine on the patio, breathing in that clear island air, and contemplating the view! We also love wandering around the village, hiking in the Turtleback Mountain Reserve, and exploring Moran State Park. We know many of the restauranteurs in town and there are a remarkable number of delicious options for an evening out.

Excellent location, beautiful home.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this beautiful property. Clean, modern, comfortable and has a spectacular view. It was the perfect fit for our small family of four. Loved cooking in the cute - quaint kitchen and eating out on the lovely patio overlooking the sound. Added perks were en suite washer and dryer, large roomy bathroom with all the amenities of home. Sara, was so helpful, made sure all the little details were covered and made our stay perfect in every way! Can’t wait to come back!

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

No better location in Eastsound. The private water view was amazing. The ability to walk everywhere was terrific. The space itself is well put together. I will prioritize this if I am on the island again. And in fairness to the thorough reviewer, it can be a tad noisy. The restaurant next door (well, the kitchen) can be quite audible during certain parts of the day - and you will want to wish for a light-footed upstairs neighbor. All that said, and honestly, if you are willing and or able to accept noise as part of close proximity, there is no better stay on the island as far as I am concerned.

Great Location & Views

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the Captain's Suite - right in the heart of downtown EastSound. It was a pleasure to walk out our door to the neighboring restaurant, shops and bakeries. We also enjoyed our cozy patio over the water. Susan, the owner, was very quick to respond to my inquiries prior to our visit which was also appreciated. Great place!

Beautiful escape and still right in the center of it all!

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful property and well kept place. There were normal kitchen items provided should we decide to cook and a grill with built in natural gas!! It was right in the heart of downtown East Sound with numerous shops and restaurants within walking distance as well as the grocery so you could pick up island grown products and cook right at home if you wanted. Beautiful bathroom and classical music playing when we entered the residence. The state parks and ferry were no more than 15 minute drive from the residence. We had a great visit and wished we could have spent more than 2 days there. A popular restaurant is right next door (recommend trying!) and while you can't see the deck and the restaurant patrons can't see you, you will hear 'restaurant noise' during the dinner hours (light talking and plates clanking) if you're hanging on the patio, which unless its raining I don't know why you wouldn't, the view was to die for! - my husband and I like background noise and live in a downtown area so we enjoy 'local business atmosphere' :) This noise was not obtrusive by any means and was only for a few hours a night.

Beautiful place to stay!

This is a great place if you have a dog and want to be close to everything plus have the most awesome view! Be sure to pick up a pizza at Hogstone and have it on the patio!
