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.

Great location in the center of Eastsound!
I loved the Leeward Studio for its modern, clean, and tasteful decor. The location in the heart of Eastsound was perfect for walking to restaurants and shops. Very quiet and peaceful.
Great spot for exploring Orcas Island
The property was clean and ready to go, the communication prior to arrival was excellent, and we had no issues during our stay. The view is even better than pictured.
Stay and view worth it
Immaculate and lovely location!
Convenient, clean, and comfortable
My husband and I stayed at the Leeward studio for a long belated-joint-birthday celebration. Incredibly conveniently located in East Sunday, we were able to walk to restaurants, cafes, and grocery stores without the need of a car. The patio is lovely, though it is shared with a short barrier splitting it for the two rooms. We never encountered our neighbors on it, though it rained quite a bit, so that may have played a role. Walls are a little thin (we could hear loud arguing easily from next door) but it wasn't terrible. We would absolutely stay here again and have recommended these studios to others. Thank you!
Delightful visit to Eastsound
Our visit was short and busy. These delightful accommodations made it restful as well.
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!!
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!
