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.

Great Central Apartment With Ocean View

  • 5 of 5
We were a family of 4 and we felt very comfortable. There is an ocean view, fire-place, central heating / cooling and the apartment is exactly as it looks in the website photos. The restaurant next door is excellent and the proximity is not a problem. They leave you the key in a black box and you have to remember the code from the email they sent you. Luckily Susan, owns a real-estate office close by. The only thing is that the price is more then a 5 star hotel in any major city.

Impeccable

  • 5 of 5
What a superb place to stay on Orcas Island. Impeccable suite, all the convenience of being in your own home - it was not missing anything that you might need - great kitchen setup.
Also had all the convenience of Eastsound Village right at your doorstep. So easy to get around this gorgeous island.
Loved the Adirondack chairs on the patio – my husband and I could have sit and looked at the view all day - but there is some many things to check out on this great island.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5
When we arrived in the tiny hamlet of Eastsound we were charmed by its slow pace, gentle relaxing atmosphere...but we were bewildered as to where the Sea Star Loft was located. We walked around town, had a delicious dinner and on the way back to our car, right there smack dab in the middle of the town, was the Sea Star. We were delighted and then we walked into the suite! Oh MY! It was perfect! The sliding glass doors from the kitchen/living area lead out onto a small, but big enough patio that overlooked the bay. The sea breezes came right through the apt and I was in heaven. Then I looked at the bathroom and separate bedroom. The bathroom was extremely generous and well stocked. It had everything we needed. I packed several things that I have found in the past are not provided by a room, and never had to pull anything of my own out. The bed was soft and roomy. Tea, creamer, sugar and a kettle were provided. They were even thoughtful enought to put a water pitcher in the fridge that filtered the water (which did have a funny taste so I was glad for the filter). An information filled ledger, that many guests took the time to comment in, was fun to read and gave us some good ideas of where to eat and what to see. This was a splurge for us, which we don't do often - we are used to budget restricted motels - so we were a little nervous about the price. We now gladly say it is well worth it!!!!

P.S. There was only one negative...we had to kill several bugs. Perhaps a good perimeter spray would take care of that.

Absolutely amazing place. Views from the deck are so peaceful. Very nice, clean, comfortable apartment. Walking distance to breakfast/ lunch places. Weather wasn't perfect the weekend we stayed, and still we absolutely enjoyed the place, will return if we can

Want to give 5 stars... but...

  • 3 of 5
We just got home from a wonderful 3 day stay in Eastsound - Eastsound was PERFECT!

Like I said - I want to give a 5 star rating - the accommodations were clean and just as we expected (having seen the photos). We also had prearranged a pack n play for our toddler and when we didn't find it there - it was delivered within 15 minutes of checking in. As far as location in Eastsound - this really doesn't get ANY better. That being said - and this is obviously out of the ownership's control - but the restaurant (Madrona) was having work done and a wet saw (for cutting tile and stone) ran on and off ALL DAY each day we were there. Starting as early as 9 a.m. Didn't really create a relaxing environment out on the patio like we had envisioned while sipping our morning coffee and naps for our toddler midday were interrupted by the noise. Even inside the unit - it was VERY disruptive. The restaurant's backdoor is about 5 feet from the unit, so if there is any activity whatsoever - it would impact your stay.

While we understand the ownership certainly can't control whether this is happening perhaps they were aware and could have given us a heads up before we booked our stay.

Owner's Response: We make every effort to insure that our guests are completely happy with their stay, and are so sorry our neighbors disrupted this visit. Unfortunately, we were unaware of it, as there was no activity when we prepared the unit. We wish we had been notified so we could put a stop to it; we are available 24/7 and encourage visitors to call us any time. Fortunately, this was a quick project which is done. We're glad that the unit itself and village experience were well received. Also, to reassure future travelers, the back door mentioned is 20 feet away with the main entry to the business located on the other side of the building, so any activity in this area is minimal. We will be sure to remind our neighbors to be considerate of our guests.
