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.'

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.

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 place to stay!
The suite was just as advertised! Very clean & everything & more that you need for your stay. My emails were answered almost immediately.
The fan for the stove was quite loud & there will be some noise if someone is staying above you.
I would definitely stay here again!
Excellent location; cozy and comfortable; clean and pleasingly decorated
We loved our stay. Excellent location; cozy and comfortable; clean and pleasingly decorated. We would definitely book here again.
Clean studio with breathtaking view in the heart of town
The studio was as pictured. Amazing location, amazing view and exceptionally clean. I am only giving 4 stars instead of 5 because we could hear the upstairs unit the entire time. The first night their dog was running around from 11pm to 1 am and the second night a small child was up at 6am and woke us up. Also, the BBQ was inoperable (not the biggest deal). I would definitely rent here again, but maybe get the upstairs unit.
We're always glad when our guests enjoy our rooms and the lovely setting in Eastsound Village. It's regrettable, however, when neighbors are especially loud. We built SeaStar Lofts with insulated double wall construction to help alleviate noise. The barbecue at the Captain's Suite is functional -- there's a fuel valve to turn on which is marked. We welcome the opportunity to solve problems if they arise and encourage our guests to call us any time day or night.
Charming Little Retreat in the Center of Eastsound
Three of us shared this well-equipped and thoughtfully designed mini-suite right in the heart of town. It was so convenient to be able to stop back in to put away purchases or grab a coat. We even walked to the grocery to get our food. Plus, the view was GORGEOUS. Even though it was a cool November day, we sat out and watched the water lapping against the shore. We even saw an eagle.
The kitchen had everything we needed, the bed was fine and the bathroom was large and luxurious. We highly recommend.
We loved our stay in Eastsound! The views, the wildlife and the stars at night blew us away! We’ll be back!
Can't wait to go back!
I have been waiting to stay at this VBRO for years. And it did not disappoint.
You are in the heart of the cute Eastsound downtown. The accommodation has everything you need to relax and enjoy your stay. And the view of the sound is breathtaking as we saw otters and seals play just off shore.
I agree with other reviews that the kitchen is a little small/unfurnished if you are looking to cook a family meal. But was perfect for a vacation style breakfast or lunch. There are a lot of good food options around town and we we were able to be seated quickly every time.
You can also here the neighbors upstairs walk around (especially if they have children). But it was never excessive.
Overall, it was a perfect place to stay. And can't wait to go back!
Enjoy the pristine beauty of Orcas Island, with the best that nature has to offer (hiking, wildlife tours, etc.), plus word class restaurants, cute shops, and absolute relaxation. This is the treasure of the northwest!
