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.

Beautiful, cozy and relaxing place to stay right in Eastsound.
We spent two nights in the Leeward Studio and we could not have been happier. Tasteful interior, fully furnished, a very comfy bed and terrific view from the small deck. We hope to return again soon.
Comfortable, clean, well stocked, and charming!
We love the Sea Star Lofts! This was our first time staying in the Leeward Studio, and it might be my favorite room now! Loved the desk facing the corner windows. Bed was super comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed to make our dinner. We will definitely return!
Fantastic in every way!
Would absolutely stay there again. Great view. Great condo. Very smart design for a small space. The directions from the Owner were clear and easy to follow. Everything was walking distance. Loved it.
View captured our attention. Beautiful location!
Walking into the Leeward Studio was comforting and inviting. We were surrounded by a beautiful view of the water and island with a small deck with a table and two chairs. The furnishings were well-maintained, very clean and attractive. We loved cooking in the compact kitchen and it was supplied with the perfect utensils. The bathroom was also beautifully designed with a deep soaking tub and thick bath towels. Beach towels were also provided. Creative use of the studio space made our visit very comfortable. We spent 4 days in the studio and it felt spacious. The coffee table also lifted up to make a work station. We also loved being in the middle of the quaint town of Eastsound with all the shops and restaurants within walking distance. The location is centrally located and just a short drive to all points of interest and hiking on the island.
The only suggestion is to fix the lock on the sliding door or provide a bar to lock the door in a closed position since the balcony is shared. We would definitely recommend this location and would love to come back to the Leeward Studio. Perfect for a couple!
Thank you for the glowing review! The lock on the sliding door has been repaired and is working securely.
Very nice, clean, great view and location.
Lovely Orcas studio
Lovely, clean studio with simple, comfortable furnishings and beautiful view. Very functional layout with everything you need. Great location on Main Street. Susan kindly called before our arrival to let us know it was snowing heavily which was fine with us.
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!
