About the property

Gaze at stunning views down East Sound from this beautiful condo perched right on the shore! SeaStar Lofts offer the only accommodations directly on the waterfront right in the heart of Eastsound Village, with waves lapping at your doorstep. The Windward Studio is one of four guest apartments in the brand new Main Street Station, designed to complement beloved historic structures of Eastsound. This is a premium unit, with spacious open floor plan of 430 square feet, queen bed, pull-out sofa, fully equipped compact kitchen, view balcony, and nearby stairs to the gorgeous rocky beach. Architecturally crafted with attention to every detail, and all new furnishings in coastal, organic style we call 'beachy elegance.' The rooms highlight natural textures and products from local artisans. In Eastsound Village you will find all you need -- farmer's market, bookstore, kayak rentals, bicycles, grocery, natural foods, boutiques, gift shops, and more. In fact, you don't even have to bring a car! Skip the ferry lines and pack light, take a shuttle or taxi to Eastsound, and the rest of your trip is easy. Feel free to ask us for any other special details you may desire for your get-away. Simply the perfect spot for your Orcas Island adventure! This unit can adjoin to our Leeward Studio for two couples or families that want more room. (See VRBO listings 419265, 418375 and 420677 for more options and group possibilities).

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 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 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.

Very central and very lovely!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our fantastic stay in this condo for three nights. We loved that it was so central as Orcas Island is quite large. This allowed us to stop back in to change and grab a snack between kayaking and hiking in different parts of the island on three different days. We also love that we could walk to all of the restaurants in East sound and we loved the coffee and amazing bakery just across the street!

Thank you for a lovely stay! We will be back!!

Fantastic place and awesome location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Windward. The place was clean and the bed was comfortable. If you are staying on Orcas it is the perfect location. Walking distance to great restaurants and quite a few local shops. Susan is great to deal with and consistent with everything she says. We left something at at the studio and she took time and care to mail it back to us.
