'Chez ZigZag' is an upstairs apartment, offers an incredible view of the Strait of Juan de Fuca , Victoria, B.C., Mt. Baker and assorted ocean going vessels. The activity of the harbor is always changing. Over 40 different types of ships can be seen regularly.
Our name is derived from the locally named ‘zigzag’ walkway that connects our street to the downtown area. Chez ZigZag is within easy walking distance of: downtown (1 block), a Safeway store with a Starbucks (2 blocks), the Coho Ferry (3 blocks) and Hollywood Beach/ Discovery Trail head (4 blocks).
Enjoy a relaxing evening around a roaring fire on the patio with your unobstructed view of the harbor, the Straight of Juan De Fuca and Victoria in the distance.You can grill some fresh salmon and sip your favorite beverage and soak in the sites.
Chez ZigZag offers a memorable home away from home, stocked with everything you might want or need for a delightful stay in Port Angeles.

Brent and Amy are both Realtors with Coldwell Banker Uptown. Brent is an avid cyclist and Amy an accomplished watercolor artist. The Powell's moved to Port Angeles a few years back to take advantage of the mild climate and majestic beauty of the Olympic Peninsula. Both have lived in several areas of the country, and by far find the Olympic peninsula the most wonderful of all.
Amy or Brent Powell purchased this apartment in 2010
We sort of stumbled into a vacation rental. The home we purchased came with a beautiful apartment upstairs with a killer view. Our renters moved out and we spent the next 8 months totally remodeling the apartment. We are excited to offer it to visitors to our area. If we came to Port Angeles looking for a vacation rental this is the one we would pick. It is centrally located with easy access to just about everything. and the view can't be beat.
It is the location,location, location. How can any thing compare to watching the shipping lane and being able to walk to town? Besides that CZZ has all the amenities you would want if you were to live here full time. Nothing beats sipping your morning coffee while watching the sun rise over Mt. Baker, or barbequing a fresh salmon on the front patio.
Chez ZIg Zag is ideally located for day trips into Olympic Nat'l Park or to catch the ferry to Victoria. The rental property is very clean and was beautifully decorated with comfortable beds and great harbor views. We had all of the comforts of home on our visit to this beautiful area.
This place is amazing! Beautiful home, great and accommodating owners. Highly recommend!
We stayed here for five nights and used it as a base camp for exploring the surrounding area (Olympic National Park and Victoria). There were lots of thoughtful touches that made us feel at home. Our 10 month old was with us and the owners supplied a pack-and-play, high chair, kids plates/cups and even some toys. We loved grilling and hanging out around the fire pit at the end of the day. A nice market, shops, restaurants and bars are within easy walking distance down the zig-zag walkway.
My boyfriend and I stayed here for four days while visiting Olympic National Park. We loved this place. Bret and Amy did a great job of fixing it up. It was very nicely decorated, very comfortable, and had everything we needed. It also has a great view of the water, with Vancouver Island in the distance. We hope to make it back to the Olympic Peninsula sometime, and we would definitely stay here again.
What can we say after "outstanding"? What a beautiful apartment in a beautiful location!
We began our journey around the Olympic Peninsula with our adult daughter by making Chez Zig-Zag our first headquarters. After 3 nights, we felt we left the area far too soon.
The upstairs apartment was beautiful and tastefully decorated. The space is so bright and cheery that we almost hated to leave the comforts of the apartment to take in the many sites surrounding Port Angeles. The apartment was surprisingly spacious (although the "tall one" did have a couple of close encounters with the sloping kitchen ceiling). Amy and Brent have equipped the apartment with everything their visitors could possibly want or need, including a Keurig coffee maker, viewing binoculars, games, books and videos. The bedrooms were exceptionally comfortable, and the living room was so relaxing. Brent and Amy's gardens are simply beautiful with a variety of interesting plants. We enjoyed sitting near their fire pit in the garden to soak in the view of the port at Strait of Juan de Fuca.
Brent and Amy were the perfect host and hostess. They were fun and interesting to visit with and even helped us finalize our local itinerary. They truly made you feel comfortable in sharing their beautiful little piece of Washington's treasure. We were sorry to leave without saying a proper good-bye.
Our daughter says she wants to return to Port Angeles to live and work, and wants to live at the Chez Zig-Zag. Well, maybe didn't actually mention "work", but she did say that the area and Chez Zig-Zag provides her style of living.
We may never return to Chez Zig-Zag or Port Angeles (for this is a vast country, and we have so much more to see), but without question, these three days and nights were the highlight of our trip. Unless, of course, our daughter does return to Port Angeles to live and work!
Highly recommended. Great location with an easy walk to restaurants and the pier. Great views from the living room and kitchen. Very clean and well decorated. The owners really thought of everything. I can't think if anything that would have made it better.
We loved the decor and subtle beach references. Thoughtful touches throughout the rooms made the stay very comfortable and cozy. Things that a hotel would normally have, but that you don't expect in a vacation rental. There were little books and signs to point out interesting things in the area or about the view. They put together a helpful book that had tips in everything from getting on the WiFi to finding a good place to eat or get delivery. The Kureg machine was a nice bonus for coffee in the morning! And the kitchen is stocked with all sorts if utensils and plates.
Great place to stay if you have kids. When the owners saw that I had a two year old, they left a big wooden box of Legos at the door. There was a pack'n play available, which we used as my son's bed. And there was also a high chair, but we didn't use it because we ate out.
The bathroom is super cute and very clean. The shower is an experience, with a skylight above.
I felt like they went out of their way to make things comfortable. We only stayed for two nights because we were driving around the peninsula, but everyone in our party wished that we could have stayed longer. We will definitely stay here again.
