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 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, 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 turn toward the water and the town melts away as you focus on the beautiful views, sounds of the surf and abundant wildlife.

Nice bright unit but very noisy

  • 3 of 5

The unit itself is quite new, good sized and light and bright. It has a small kitchen, comfortable king size bed, dining table, sofa and desk. There is a full bath with deep tub. The location is right in the heart of Eastsound so very convenient to all shops and restaurants. This building has a total of four units, three upstairs and one down. Unfortunately this is the only one of the four that doesn't face the water. Instead it faces the street. In all honesty, if you are used to going to bed at about 10PM and getting up by 5:30-6:00 AM or if you can sleep through the almost non stop noise of trucks loading and unloading, the restaurant next door dumping their glass bottles, and a large garage door for the shop directly below being raised and lowered then this unit will be fine. If you would like a little peace and quiet then either spend extra for one of the units on the water side or stay someplace else.

Owner's Response: We're glad you liked the room itself, but our sincere apologies for the noise! It sounds like a particularly lively time, since Eastsound is generally pretty quiet, particularly at night. We will definitely have a chat with our neighbors to ensure the room is peaceful for our future guests.

Perfect location in the heart of town.

  • 5 of 5

This is an open and airy studio with plenty of space and conveniences. We were there for a girls getaway and the bathroom is huge, the kitchen is well stocked and the fireplace is toasty! Would come back in a heartbeat.

Everything you need for a short trip

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed over the weekend to celebrate his grandma's birthday. We loved this place! Everything we needed was there, including coffee and creamer!

The place was super clean and the check in process was simple. It was great being right in the middle of town. We were only steps away from everything.

I almost want to keep this all a secret so it's available for our next stay.
