About Susan Gudgell

We have been on Orcas Island for many decades (in fact Wally grew up here!), so are long-time locals. We can suggest not only the most popular travel adventures, but will also share little know gems on island backroads.

Susan Gudgell purchased this condo in 1990

Why Susan Gudgell chose Eastsound

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, completing the 'Main Street Station.' SeaStar Lofts fulfills our dream of welcoming others to our favorite place in the world. We've tried to supply our guests with all we personally look for in fine travel accommodations.

What makes this condo unique

As we mention above, these are the only accommodations located on the actual shore in Eastsound Village. We provide a full living experience, with kitchens, washer/dryers, and everything you need for either a short visit or extended stay. Every convenience is just steps away, yet you can access the beach right next to the building to enjoy the beautiful views and abundant wildlife.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Perfectly located and decorated. Thank you so much for the perfect weekend.

Girls weekend

  • 5 of 5

Three of us came to enjoy a fun weekend and run a race. This was the perfect hub for being able to walk to all of the restaurants and shops. We loved it and will be back next year.

large room in a great spot.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed at the Sea Star loft one other time in a different room that I don't remember a lot about other than there wasn't anything to prevent us form coming back, obviously! it was a couple of years ago.

This room was much larger and nicer than I expected, a possible semi-recent remodel maybe? Everything was new-ish(?) comfortable, very clean and spacious. A nice kitchenette, and comfy bed with lots of pillows to round out our stay. You are right 'downtown' in Eastsound with easy parking available for the SeaStar. We prefer to walk home after a cocktail at Barnacle, ahem...

anyway, fantastic stay. The owners respond very quickly to any questions during the reservation and check-in process. Everything worked great, so there wasn't any need to contact them during the stay.

Great Solo & Dog Stay

  • 5 of 5

Stayed a week at the studio with my dog. It was very clean, with fun décor, and everything I needed. Loved the king-size bed. I noticed in the photos the sofa faced the street. So I set up clean blankets from home and, presto, a perfect perch for dog to watch everybody and every dog on the street. The town is friendly with many places to eat within walking distance and easy access to activities. Great stay.

Charming Comfort

  • 5 of 5

This charming loft suite provided the best locale for our stay in Orcas ! It truly is centrally located in the Village of East Sound and provided the best jumping off point for exploring this wonderful island. The accommodations were everything that was advertised and the pictures tell and show everything. It is incredibly cozy; and we felt that since we were going out exploring Orcas Island; we didn't need to opt for the sea-side units. I think if we had stayed for a week, the sea-side units would have been nice, but for just exploring the island for 3 days, it's not necessary. You do hear the sounds of the village during the day, but it is a comforting level of small village busy noise (not the over-whelming blare of city noise). Yes; they do garbage pickup of the next door businesses at 6:30 on Saturday and Monday, but once again it is not a vacation ruining matter. If you are looking for absolute silence; this is not the place. If you are looking for a small town village and some of the bustle that goes with it and being located where you can walk to ALL of the restaurants and shops of East Sound; you won't do any better than this. We were thrilled with our stay. Cleanliness was excellent; and we would stay here again (no questions asked).

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the glowing comments! Our apologies for the garbage pick up time...we have spoken with our local garbage folks and they have rescheduled so there is no more early morning disturbance. We'll hope to welcome you back sometime soon!
