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 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

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.

Perfect and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location! I have high standards... I don't think there is a better room in town, let alone with a kitchen and separate bedroom. The photos do not give it justice. It is very nicely decorated. It seems to have been improved since the photos were taken. The deck outside is very private and serene. I plan on reserving this unit again.

The Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect spot to spend a long weekend! We were visiting for a wedding so we didn't have a lot of time to really explore. I hope we can come back and stay again.

A perfect little getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our our stay at the Captain's Suite in Eastsound. The location is ideal, but not at all noisy. I noted that some reviews mentioned issues with the restaurant next door; however, we felt that was a minimal noise level and ended at 10pm anyways.

The unit was spotless, welcoming, and thoughtfully outfitted. Little details and items put out for use were truly a joy. Local coffee, spices, toiletries etc. Although we had brought our dog's dishes with us, we discovered that even those would have been available. I have a great photo of our pooch sitting on that deck, just staring at the water views. All in all, our time there was mesmerizing! Huge thanks to the owners for sharing this unique place!

Very clean and cozy. The attention to detail and well thought amenities is evident throughout.

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful private location right on the water and walking distance to great food and shops. A warm, comfortable retreat in rain or sun! You defiantly need 2 nights to really make the most of your stay with all the hiking and exploring available on the island, and the opportunity to island hop to Friday Harbor for extended stays. Bring binoculars if your trip includes Mt. Constitution, on a clear day the view is spectacular and you might see whales below. The option for cooking or grilling your own food is a bonus and the kitchen has all you need. Drink the filtered water... Island water is an acquired taste and if you are an early riser needing coffee, bring your own. Coffee shops don't open until 8am.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us and we're so glad you enjoyed your visit to the island! A quick reminder for future guests: we provide coffee in the rooms so early risers need not fear. Our own Local Goods coffee company is the best!
