About the property

Gaze at stunning views down East Sound from this beautiful studio 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 Leeward 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 Windward Studio for two couples or families that want more room. (See VRBO listings 419265, 420673 and 418375 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

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for having us at the SeaStar Lofts. Our studio was a perfect home base for our winter get-away, from the cut gas stove to the spectacular view. The kitchen was well-stocked, and the bed was comfortable and welcoming, especially after a grueling hike up Mt. Constitution. Thank you for your hospitality, and we look forward to staying with you again.

Perfect Spot on Orcas

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I loved your condo, it was the perfect spot to celebrate our anniversary. It was in an amazing location in Eastsound, walk-able to all the shops and restaurants. The decor was great and had everything we needed. The view was very nice as well.

Amazing place and host!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay and had a memorable time at Leeward Studio! The place was just amazing, well equipped and beautifully decorated. It has an amazing view of the sound. Centrally located and walking distance from most restaurants. Susan was great at communicating and accommodating us. Will definitely stay here again and highly recommend it.

Wonderful location! Great management!

  • 5 of 5

Want the perfect location, gorgeous view, super comfy bed, and a studio that's been appointed with every detail you could wish for? This is the place for you! And add to that a remarkably hospitable, thoughtful and responsive owner! We were there as the typhoon was closing in, and we had a wonderful time in spite of the weather. The owners made sure we had extra batteries and water, and they were available to answer any questions we had. We'd go again tomorrow if we could. Hope you have the good fortune to stay here.

Just right.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Leeward Studio on Orcas Island.

The studio was just right for us and we really enjoyed the little deck facing the water.

It was great being in town and having everything within walking distance.

Communication and ease of accessing the property were great.

Thanks so much for sharing your place with us.
