About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible Bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-4)

Gaze at this stunning view down from a brand new condo perched right on the shore! The Captain's Suite is one of four guests apartments in the Main Street Station, designed to complement beloved historic structures of Eastsound. This is our premium unit, one bedroom with a queen bed, pull-out sofa, fully equipped compact kitchen, barbeque, porch just steps from the water, and nearby stairs to the gorgeous rocky beach. 500 square feet 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. This unit is on the main floor for easy access, and includes a washer and dryer for your personal use. In Eastsound Village you will find all you need -- the 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!

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.

We so enjoyed our stay at Susan's place. Sat outside each night for happy hour enjoying the view!

Wonderful location in the heart of Eastsound. Loved the bakery each morning and food at Medrano was superb. Wished we could've found more seafood but did have good scallops at Leaf. Shops were just okay but a nice walk. Only suggestions I would make about accommodations are: 1) cushion on sofa bed was covered in masking tape on one side so not too appealing and 2) the only thing that bothered me about restaurant right next door was there outside light was on all night long so very bright trying to sleep on sofa bed!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay! We appreciate your suggestions. It is our priority to maintain the fine aesthetics in our rooms, and we were chagrined when one of the sofa cushions was damaged this summer. It is being repaired now. And, although we do have black-out curtains in the bedroom to keep out exterior lighting, we are going to install them in the living room as well. There are a great number of terrific seafood places on Orcas, and we're always available to offer suggestions to enhance your visit. We hope to welcome you back!

Great View of East Sound

  • 5 of 5

Well equipped and maintained property in the heart of East Sound with great view of the water. Very tastefully decorated. Close to all the restaurants and stores of East Sound. The only downside was some noise from the grill next door but this always ended about 9-10PM.

Fantastic view, convenient location, space for the whole family

  • 5 of 5

We rented all four seastar condos as well as the homestead house kitty corner to the SeaStar lofts for a wonderful pre wedding family get to know each other. 27 in all. The condos were perfect for the groom's parents and siblings families while the homestead house suited the bride's parents and brothers families. The condos provided both separate space yet when doors were opened combined space. Washer and dryer a plus with young families. Everything within walking distance. Did not experience noise from bar as expected from other reviews. (Possibly because we were there Monday through Wednesday and not on the weekend.) All was as expected and perfect!

Beautiful property and view

  • 5 of 5

The property and the view are a 10 that's for sure and the amenities and decorations are tops!

Sit on the deck and enjoy the gorgeous view and the wildlife as they fly and float by!

Susan thinks of every detail and the caretaker makes sure everything is perfect from top to bottom.

Just a wonderful experience!
