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 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 with the 'Main Street Station.' SeaStar Lofts allows us to welcome travelers to our favorite place in the world.
What makes this Condo unique
We provide a complete 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 enjoy beautiful views, sounds of the surf and abundant wildlife.

Perfect spot on the island as Eastsound has the most shops and it's all within walking distance.
Great location and right along the water. Easy walking to any place in Eastsound. We loved this location, but if you are someone who needs complete darkness or likes to sleep in, this may not be the best location as there is a restaurant right next door. They close early (around 9 when we were there), but leave a large spotlight in at night and start early (it was a little before 8am) with cleaning the outside deck. We are early risers, so it didnt bother us and the location more than makes up for it! The room was clean and had everything you need. Susan was great about getting us all the information and was very willing to answer any questions.
The island is very easy to get around and so many beautiful places to explore that we cant wait to be able to come back!!
Comfortable accommodation in the heart of town and center of the island
We've just returned home from a lovely trip to the Pacific Northwest. Orcas Island was our last destination, and this was our favorite rental. The place looks just like the photos on the website. The bed is very comfortable, and there is plenty of room for work (why?), dining, storing your things, and in the bathroom.
There is free laundry right across the hall, and plenty of stores, restaurants, etc. within easy walking distance. And Eastsound is right in the middle of the island, making trips to Moran State Park, with lakes and Mount Constitution on the east side, and Deer Harbor, etc. on the west side, easily accessible.
The communication with Susan was clear and helpful.
There is a restaurant next door, but they close early at night, so shouldn't be a problem for noise. I do wish, however, that they turned off the very bright light on their outside walkway that is right across from the outside balcony. It made enjoying the view of the reflection of the moon on the water and star-gazing hard.
I'd return in a heartbeat, and hope to do so in the future.
Great locale, great views. Walking distance to everything in Eastsound.
Unit was updated & super clean. Check for directions on using the AC if any?
Wonderful spot on Orcas Island!
We booked two of the studios for my mother and law and aunt to stay for our daughter’s wedding on Orcas. Both ladies loved them (even my hard to please MIL). Both studios were clean and comfortable. We even ran into Sara, the property manager, before the ladies checked in. She was so sweet and asked if there was anything at all she could do to make their stay more enjoyable. We walked to the local market and Sara let us stock the studios with a few snacks. And the location of being right in the heart of Eastsound was perfect. They could walk for coffee and meals and, most importantly, shopping! Would highly recommend Sea Star studios!
Susan, the owner, was so patient and helpful in the months before the wedding while trying to get accommodations organized.
Gorgeous view, very clean and nice
Great amenities, beautiful view of the water, right in Eastsound, very clean and nice furniture
Nice apartment in a perfect location
The title says it all.
Orcas Island is the gem of the San Juans, offering all the best that nature has to offer: gorgeous scenery, pristine parks (Moran State Park and Turtleback Mountain Reserve), whale and other wildlife watching, boating, bicycling and more. Combine that with a charming town featuring world class restaurants and great boutique shopping. The perfect place to get away from it all!
