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 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.

Beautiful Retreat

  • 4 of 5

My daughter and I stayed in the Captain's Suite for a girls get-away. It was perfect. From the design of the condo to the location, it could not have been better. Large and spacious interior. Enormous bathroom. Washer/Dryer in unit. Beautiful view and lovely small patio with relaxing chairs. Perfect for the 2 pups we had with us. Centered in downtown Eastsound. No need to drive, which was lovely. The only issue we had was hearing the people above us a little too clearly. Walking, talking, showering, etc. I would recommend the Captain's Suite wholeheartedly, and cant wait to stay there again.

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.

  • 5 of 5

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.
