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 2012
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
Sipping coffee or a glass of wine on the patio, breathing in that clear island air, and contemplating the view! We also love wandering around the village, hiking in the Turtleback Mountain Reserve, and exploring Moran State Park. We know many of the restauranteurs in town and there are a remarkable number of delicious options for an evening out.

Labor Day visit
People in Eastsound very friendly. Beautiful day providing clear view of water and Islands Apartment very clean, bright and up to date. The only issues were the bed was too soft and the TV remote controls was a little complex to use.
The condo is perfectly located. The bathroom was fantastic. The landlady was responsive.
It was difficult to cook more than lunch or dinner in the compact kitchen, which was not mentioned in previous reviews. Since the restaurants in Eastsound are so fantastic, it didn't really matter.
For future guests who may want to cook, the kitchen is compact but fully equipped with four burner stove, oven, microwave, coffee maker and all pots, dishes and utensils. There's also a barbecue on the private patio.
Great place that’s private but right in town, perfect for older folks.
We are an older couple with some challenges. The Captain’s suite was just right—level entry, very private, great private patio with a view. And it is on the Main Street with all sorts of restaurants and shops just out the door.
great location, thoughtful owner
First off, the information provided by the owner was first-rate. Also, the ease of checking in and checking out (almost nothing to do at checkout) was highly appreciated. The property is right on the main street of Eastsound. Numerous restaurants and a grocery store are easy walking distance. The lofts are waterfront, and right next door to a nice eatery, Madrona Bar & Grill. Don't worry, they close early enough that it won't keep you up late if you need to sleep. The kitchen was fairly well appointed. It could use a few more coffee cups and dishes. We didn't cook meals during our stay, but I feel we could have with what was provided. The rest of the property was as advertised and comfortable. The book about the hiking trails in the San Juan Islands and the Olympic Peninsula was a nice find, as were the binoculars the owner provided. Overall a very enjoyable stay in a good location and a glorious island.
Nestled in the heart of town
Very cute spot behind local shops! Perfect for our little getaway. Our only complaint is we had such a short trip we didn’t get to maximize the benefits of the location and comfort!
The property, view and condo were all perfect. We couldn’t have asked for a better stay. We will be back for sure!
Enjoy the pristine beauty of Orcas Island, with the best that nature has to offer (hiking, wildlife tours, etc.), plus word class restaurants, cute shops, and absolute relaxation. This is the treasure of the northwest!
