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 central perch on the island!

  • 5 of 5

Walk out the front door and you are in the quaint town of Eastsound, walk out onto the little deck and you are enveloped by the water and views of the islands. Has everything one needs for a very comfortable stay. We're coming back!

Super responsive owner and manager!

  • 5 of 5

Cute, very clean, very efficient studio with neat view. Fun being "right in town" of Eastsound. The owner and manager were both very responsive, both by email and in person. We had a couple of questions when we first checked in, and they responded immediately. And, we left our phone charger which they graciously mailed to us.

Delightful Spot

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful little studio. simple, comfortable for two, and complete in ammenities. Stunning view, and filled with the sounds of the water on the shore. Being right in the village it was fun to walk to shops, coffee, restaurants, beach, or parks. And being right in the village makes it also filled with the sounds of others, a shared back deck, neighboring restaurants, shops, vacationers...but all seemed to quiet at night. A wonderful spot.

Well appointed, clean, great view!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay! We would highly recommend. My only suggestion would be replace the full sized bed with a king.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your visit and we're so glad you enjoyed the Leeward Studio. The bed is queen sized as, unfortunately, we couldn't fit a king in that unit. We do have a king in our Spinnaker Studio for those with that preference. We'll hope to welcome you back again sometime soon!

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. My only suggestion would be to create a little more closet space to hang clothes. We had a hard time living out of our suitcases. What a perfect location though! Can't wait to come back.

Owner's Response: Thank you for visiting and we're so glad you enjoyed your stay. We appreciate any feedback and just wanted to let future guests know that there are dresser cabinets and luggage racks, in addition to the hanging closets, to accommodate clothing storage. We'll hope to welcome you back!
