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 1990

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 little place, amazing view.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! The tiny little deck had the most amazing view. Perfect place to relax with a cup of coffee in the morning and a glass of wine after sightseeing. Great location too, right in the middle of fun little shops and great food within blocks.

Beautiful spot on the sea.

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled when we pulled up at the Sea Star Lofts and realized it was not only on the ocean but on a really great street. We could walk everywhere, found good food and enjoyed ourselves immensely. The furnishings and items in the room were attractive and useful.

Downtown condo with an amazing view and balcony!

  • 5 of 5

This studio condo exceeded our expectations. The owners have thought of everything. The view is amazing and the condo is very comfortable. Although the parking is located up the street, it is really just a few steps away. We were in walking distance from everything we wanted to do. We will definitely stay here when we return to Orcas again. Thank you!

Had a wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Windward Studio. We have spent a lot of time on Orcas and loved being able to stay right in Eastsound this time. The Studio was actually bigger and nicer than the pictures even showed.

It had nearly everything in the kitchen we needed for making breakfasts. Having the balcony overlooking the water was wonderful bonus.
