Chez Zig Zag - Killer View, comfy apartment, close to everything

Bedrooms 2
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 1 - 3 nights


About the property

Luxury upstairs apt, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, fully equipped kitchen (Sleeps 4-5)

'Chez ZigZag' is an upstairs apartment that 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 60 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).

Our new, 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. 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 delightful stay in Port Angeles. Why stay anywhere else!

About Amy or Brent Powell

We are both Realtors with Coldwell Banker Uptown Realty in Port Angeles. Brent is regular cyclist and Amy is an accomplished water color 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 Olympic Peninsula

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 provides a peaceful retreat that can't be beat.

What makes this apartment unique

It is location,location, location. How can any thing compare to watching the harbor shipping lane activity and being able to walk to town as well?! 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 barbecuing a fresh salmon on the front patio BBQ. Our new, one of a kind outside fireplace tops it off. It is our hope that Chez Zig Zag will not only please, but also exceed your expectations.

Everything and more!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Chez Zig Zag. Everything was as described...and more! The location is ideal - just up the zig-zag ramp from the town center and ferry dock, walking distance to Safeway, easy access to 101. The flat was very nicely designed and furnished, light and bright, and even though I am 6'5" tall, never once did I hit my head on the ceiling. In fact, being tucked up in the eaves really added charm to the space. Beds were comfortable, kitchen was well-equipped, bathroom/shower were beautiful, and the outdoor areas were the best (we hung out there every night - grilling, playing games, enjoying the views). Amy and Brent were welcoming hosts, available, attentive, respectful of our privacy but included us in some rip-roaring rounds of corn-hole with the neighbors. I highly recommend this property.

Beautiful home with stupendous views

  • 5 of 5

The house is clean, well appointed and very comfortable. The beds are comfortable. The linen and blankets are high quality. The kitchen is well equipped.

The views from the kitchen table and the living room window seat are magnificent. The neighborhood is very quiet both day and night.

Amy and Brent are excellent landlords. If something was missing (like decaf coffee for the brewer) they got it within hours or gave you their's.

The yards, both front and back, are well cared for. There is a vegetable garden, from which Brent offered some veggies. The front yard has a gas grill and big fireplace that Brent sets up with wood every evening, if you care to sit in the evening in front of the fire.

It is a short walk (5 minutes) down the ZigZag (a wood ramp walkway that descends into the town in a zigzag manner) to the center of Port Angeles, which is a charming town with lots of good restaurants, coffee shops and unique shops. Just down the Zigzag is a big Whole Foods like market - but bigger and better.

Overall this was an excellent experience which we will repeat next year.

Great views and tremendous outdoor dining!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for one night on a multi day vacation and really enjoyed the chance to cook some fresh salmon and enjoy the outdoor dining area with fantastic views of the Port Angeles harbor and Strait. The property is easily in walking distance to downtown Port Angeles and grocery stores, etc are nearby. The outdoor areas of this property really set it apart and you feel like you can spend hours outside. Inside, your kitchen and living room keep those awesome water views in sight as well. This is a great base camp for adventures into Olympic NP!

Fantastic property!

  • 5 of 5

A fabulous home away from home. Peaceful and serene base to come home to at the end of each days hike. Lots of lovely touches including Amy's beautiful paintings to gaze upon. Thanks Brent for the Thai restaurant recommendation. It was an amazing meal after our long hike. We will definitely recommend to our friends. Thanks Amy and Brent.

Perfect jumping off place for Olympic Peninsula!

  • 5 of 5

Amy and Brent were wonderful hosts and their place had everything we needed - and anything we couldn't find, they brought right over. The place has great views of the harbor, and it's a short walk to the town and a groovy natural grocery store. Thank you!

Port Angeles is the home of many seasonal celebrations and Festivals from the Crab Fest in October to the Juan De Fuca Music Festival in the Spring. Live theater is also available periodically in both Port Angeles and Sequim. There is no end to both winter and Summer activities In the Olympic Mountains and National Park. Whale watching tours, salmon and Halibut fishing in the Strait round out this incredible area which is a destination vacation area worldwide. You certainly owe it to yourself to visit the North Olympic Peninsula at least once in your life time. There is no place on earth quite like it.
