About The Owner

My name is Jeanette, I was born in a small town called Foxton in New Zealand. I moved to America in 1985. We purchased our home in Port Angeles in April of 1990. After living in Seattle for three years I did not want to raise my daughter in the big city.

We looked for a place that was more like NZ for us and we discovered the Olympic Peninsula! With it's majestic mountains and the Pacific Ocean, how much closer could it feel to my home country. My husband, Scott & I enjoy the relaxing, slow pace of

our area with lots of places to explore. We have been a foster home to hundreds of children in the past 22 years, many beautiful memories are made.

Kiwi West has a collection of memoirs and gifts from home. Sometimes we escape to our little vacation rental and light the fire in the wood stove and enjoy a quiet break from our busy family days. It feels warm and peaceful, just the two of us!

The Owner purchased this studio in 1990

Why The Owner chose Port Angeles

We purchased our home as a duplex in 1990 and opened up the upstairs to give us all of the bedrooms for us to accommodate more foster children. The downstairs of the second part of the duplex was a little rental for some years, until 3 years ago we decided to make it into a vacation rental because it is in a tranquil area, where you can choose to relax or enjoy the many parks, beaches, rainforest and waterfalls. There is so much to do in the Olympic National Park alone. We are located close to the Port Angeles airport, Victoria BC ferry dock and only 2-3 hours from the big city of Seattle.

What makes this studio unique

One can enjoy the peaceful, relaxing, smoke-free environment. Sit out on the deck and watch the chickens make their daily rounds in the back yard. Or on the front porch on a beautiful sunny day and see the majestic mountains, for a long time they have snow on their peaks. Or if you like to bike, hike, fish or hunt, golf or surf, we are close to the Dungeness River, Voice of America; Dungeness Spit, Olympic Game Farm, Lavendar Farms in Sequim, Hurricane Ridge, victorian seaport; Port Townsend, Jamestown Casino and Sol Duc Hot Springs.

A Wonderful, Comfortable Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

The Kiwi Nest is very low key and comfortable. We loved staying there for three nights while we explored the Olympic National Park and Port Angeles. We walked over to a great Thai restaurant one night, ate leftovers the next, just enjoyed the whole stay.

Lovely ambiance

  • 5 of 5

My stay was very short but I enjoyed the lovely and quirky old home ambiance complete with chickens, cats and even a duck. Nicely located but not within walking distance to the harbor which was not an issue for me. Homeowners were so helpful in resolving internet issues and how the heat worked. The bed is excellent and even has a wood stove insert in the bedroom!

Perfect for us

Homey funky decor and a big fabulous yard! The space heaters (built in) were thoughtfully placed to take the chill off. Jeanette was a supremely gracious host. Lovely time!

Perfect location and accommodation

  • 5 of 5

The kiwi is perfect. Clean, comfortable, everything you need. The location is perfect for exploring the national forest and beaches. The town is quiet with everything you need close by. The owners are friendly and willing to help with any questions or needs that might arise. Wish we had more time here. It was wonderful.

Owner's Response: Thank you, a comment we often hear, "wish we had more time here" We are close to so many Park entries and Ferries to the San Juan Islands, and Victoria. You can make Kiwi West your home base and explore the beauty of the Pacific Northwest at your leisure.

The studio is very light filled with lots of windows and quiet.

  • 5 of 5

Kiwi West is a very inviting get-a-way. The kitchen had all that I needed. I really enjoyed the music awaiting me from the radio which also has a cd player. My fave thing to do at the studio was read out on the small table which has an umbrella in a private part of the yard. Crescent Lake was 27 minutes away. Comfy, cozy and on a quiet street. Scott and Jeanette shared the hens fresh eggs. Lovely!
