About the property

Gaze at stunning views down East Sound from this beautiful studio condo perched right on the shore! SeaStar Lofts offer the only accommodations directly on the waterfront right in the heart of Eastsound Village, with waves lapping at your doorstep. The Leeward Studio is one of four guest apartments in the brand new Main Street Station, designed to complement beloved historic structures of Eastsound. This is a premium unit, with spacious open floor plan of 430 square feet, queen bed, pull-out sofa, fully equipped compact kitchen, view balcony, and nearby stairs to the gorgeous rocky beach. 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. In Eastsound Village you will find all you need -- 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! This unit can adjoin to our Windward Studio for two couples or families that want more room. (See VRBO listings 419265, 420673 and 418375 for more options and group possibilities).

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 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

We provide a complete living experience, with kitchens, washer/dryers, and everything you need for either a short visit or extended stay. Every convenience is just steps away, yet turn toward the water and the town melts away as you enjoy beautiful views, sounds of the surf and abundant wildlife.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for having us at the SeaStar Lofts. Our studio was a perfect home base for our winter get-away, from the cut gas stove to the spectacular view. The kitchen was well-stocked, and the bed was comfortable and welcoming, especially after a grueling hike up Mt. Constitution. Thank you for your hospitality, and we look forward to staying with you again.

Perfect location, and wonderful personal touches on the amenities .

  • 5 of 5

From the easy to follow directions to the evenings on the deck overlooking the water and small island, our stay was thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish. We loved the overall design and especially the gas fireplace. Spacious yet cozy, a great romantic hideaway in the middle of town.

Beautiful, cozy and relaxing place to stay right in Eastsound.

  • 5 of 5

We spent two nights in the Leeward Studio and we could not have been happier. Tasteful interior, fully furnished, a very comfy bed and terrific view from the small deck. We hope to return again soon.

We love the Sea Star Lofts! This was our first time staying in the Leeward Studio, and it might be my favorite room now! Loved the desk facing the corner windows. Bed was super comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed to make our dinner. We will definitely return!

Would absolutely stay there again. Great view. Great condo. Very smart design for a small space. The directions from the Owner were clear and easy to follow. Everything was walking distance. Loved it.

View captured our attention. Beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

Walking into the Leeward Studio was comforting and inviting. We were surrounded by a beautiful view of the water and island with a small deck with a table and two chairs. The furnishings were well-maintained, very clean and attractive. We loved cooking in the compact kitchen and it was supplied with the perfect utensils. The bathroom was also beautifully designed with a deep soaking tub and thick bath towels. Beach towels were also provided. Creative use of the studio space made our visit very comfortable. We spent 4 days in the studio and it felt spacious. The coffee table also lifted up to make a work station. We also loved being in the middle of the quaint town of Eastsound with all the shops and restaurants within walking distance. The location is centrally located and just a short drive to all points of interest and hiking on the island.

The only suggestion is to fix the lock on the sliding door or provide a bar to lock the door in a closed position since the balcony is shared. We would definitely recommend this location and would love to come back to the Leeward Studio. Perfect for a couple!
