About Susan Gudgell
We are long time Orcas Islanders -- Wally grew up on Orcas and Susan was drawn here because of summers with her grandparents on nearby Samish Island. The natural beauty was our initial attraction in building a life here, but the wonderful community of eclectic neighbors have kept us here. It has been a great place to raise our family.
Susan Gudgell purchased this Bungalow in 2015
Why Susan Gudgell chose Eastsound
The West Sound Hamlet has always held a special place in our hearts. We have a dock there, and Wally spent part of his childhood years living in the neighborhood. In fact, his family used to have Thanksgiving with the family who owned the Bungalow at the time. We hope someday to relocate there, and were thrilled when this wonderful home became available.
What makes this Bungalow unique
The Bungalow is unique, as it has access to all that West Sound offers -- beautiful views, marina, dock, public beach, sailing -- yet is tucked privately on a large lot surrounded by lush vegetation. The large level yard is promising as a future garden, and the home's floor plan is cozy and easy to navigate, yet has plenty of room for a family or group. What really topped it off for us is the stream and salt-water estuary on the property's boundary, offering a lullaby of sound day and night.
Casual small gatherings are fine.
Pets must not be left unattended unless crated.
Perfect property for families.
No noise after 9 p.m. or before 8 a.m.

Hope to return
Great property, excellent location, wonderful view. Sarah and Susan were very responsive to needs and very pleasant. We would definitely return to this property. Loved the whole island!!
Great family rental
Spacious house great for our family with multiple kids. Enjoyed the beautiful view from the hot tub in the evenings and mornings.
Can’t Say Enough...
Every now and then, life throws you a curve ball. A problem that was impossible for the owner to anticipate occurred just before our arrival. As with any problem, it’s how it is managed that makes or breaks the experience. Our owner, Susan, was so proactive, so accessible, and so very fair, that we probably appreciated Susan and her delightful properties more than if there had not been an issue. The bottom line:
The Bungalow is a gorgeous, well-appointed property that we thoroughly enjoyed in a beautiful area. Everything we hoped for and more.
Because of the issue, we also got to experience Eastsound, and her gorgeous property (Homestead?] walking distance to the darling town center.
Susan and her property manager are professional and gracious and beyond helpful.
We would rent either property again without hesitation.
Wonderful place and great location.
The house was fabulous and the grounds were well kept and delightful. The furniture was modern and well kept. We were sad to have left. Would love to have the house as my own. Well located to all you need on Orcas. Want to come again.
We want to return!
Fabulous weekend and the location couldn't be beat for marina views
Very quick responses for questions. Extremely clean and well set up with everything.
The Bungalow has close access to the beach, trails at Turtleback Mountain Preserve with stunning views of the region, five miles from the charming main town of Eastsound, marina and public dock just steps away, and the charming West Sound Cafe in the summer. Truly centrally located for your island explorations!
