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 location

  • 5 of 5

Charming and cute apartment-style rental on Orcas Island right in the middle of town. Great access to local shops and food establishments (highly recommend Brown Bear Baking!). The view serene, saw eagles flying right outside the window. The kitchen was cozy and perfect for making easy meals, for its size, it has everything you'd want! The bathroom was very spacious. Having a washer/dryer made it so we could go home with clean clothes, always a perk. I can imagine town (and the hiking trails) being very busy in the summer months but in February it was the perfect level of happening.

Best. View. Ever.

So nice to be able to enjoy the view from our deck. Susan was super helpful suggesting hikes we could go on with our "senior" dog. Definitely will be back.

Great find on Orcas Island. Located in downtown Eastsound. Walkable to everything. View of East Sound (water) from (2) large sliders that opened to private patio. Open concept main room with spacious bathroom. Clean and modern. Comfortable queen bed with warm blankets and quilt. Highly recommended.

The Captain's Suite is perfect for a quiet getaway. The view from the patio is amazing. The location is centrally located on Main Street. There are several restaurants within a short walk. I hope to stay here again. Soon!
