About the property

Luxury upstairs apt, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Ba, fully equipped kitchen (Sleeps 4 adults)

'Chez ZigZag' is an upstairs apartment that is accessed from 204 S Oak St. It is only three blocks from the ferry to Victoria.You have a delightful 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 60 different types of boats and 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).

Our one-of-a-kind, outdoor fireplace is ready for action. Ample wood is stacked nearby. Each evening the wood is set and ready for you to light a relaxing outdoor fire. Nothing beats watching the activity on the harbor in front of a roaring fire or enjoying an evening drink or meal.

Chez ZigZag offers a memorable home away from home, stocked with everything you might want or need for a wonderful visit to Port Angeles. Why stay anywhere else!

About Amy or Brent Powell

We are both Brokers with Coldwell Banker Uptown Realty in Port Angeles. Brent is regular cyclist and Amy is an accomplished watercolor artist. We are also retired Registered Dental Hygienists amidst a few other careers.

Living here has been a total blessing to us and we look forward to passing it on to our guests. After living all over the USA, we've decided this is the best place of all. We love the natural beauty of the surroundings and the friendly people. What could be better?

Amy or Brent Powell purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Amy or Brent Powell chose Port Angeles

We sort of stumbled into a vacation rental. The home we purchased came with a separate apartment upstairs. Our renters moved out and we spent the next 4 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 now luxurious, and centrally located with easy access to just about everything. Chez Zig Zag provides a peaceful retreat that can't be beat. Come see. You will not be disappointed!

What makes this apartment unique

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. How can any thing compare to watching the harbor and shipping lane activity. A short walk to down town brings a variety of excellent dining.

Besides that CZZ has all the amenities you would want if you were to live here full time. Nothing beats sipping your morning coffee and watching the sun rise over Mt. Baker - or barbecuing a fresh salmon on the front patio. Enjoying a roaring fire in the outside front fireplace is a memorable conclusion to viewing all the natural wonders The North Olympic Peninsula has to offer.

It is our hope that Chez Zig Zag will not only please, but exceed your expectations. Come see, you will not be disappointed!

Awesome Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The unit is just as it looks, fabulous! There was a full coffee drawer and the outside real wood fireplace was stocked and ready to go. Fantastic location to walk to town and organic grocery store. Brent and Amy were super accommodating and even provided us a flashlight for our late night walk to dinner. We really appreciated the heated bathroom floor, leather furniture, fresh decor and view!!!

Tranquil and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

There is something hypnotic about watching the large ships come and go from your window seat here. We enjoyed a cup of coffee watching the sunrise over the Strait then walked to the Haven for breakfast. The place is so quiet and very nicely appointed with soft bedding, a great couch and reclining chair, and a beautiful outdoors space. Very private and serene with water and mountain views abounding! Thanks Amy and Brent for such a great getaway!

I wish I could live there!

  • 5 of 5

I can’t say enough good things about this cute and cozy place. My daughter and I stayed two nights and we wished we could have stayed longer. It was spotless and comfortable and had everything we needed for a wonderful getaway. I especially appreciated the well-stocked kitchen, the coffee bar and the captivating views that allowed us both to slow down and relax. Can’t wait to go back - for longer next time!

This property is always a highlight of my stays in Port Angeles. Perfect location above the city with a nice zig-zag walkway to downtown. The property is well equipped and very comfortable. This was my third stay and I highly recommend it!

Great views, great rooms, great hosts

  • 5 of 5

Chez Zig Zag is spotless, comfortable and roomy. Wonderful views of the harbor and the mountains. It is walkable to downtown Port Angeles, so need for a car once you're here if you want to explore the downtown shops and restaurants. The place has everything you could possibly need for a short or long stay. Our hosts were accommodating and greeted us as we arrived; very polite. We tried some of the restaurants they recommended and were very happy. I would recommend Chez Zig Zag to anyone staying in Port Angeles.
