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.

  • Ocean View:

    Chez ZigZag offers a panoramic view of Port Angeles Harbor and the Strait of Juan de Fuca. It overlooks a very active working harbor and waterfront. Scores of ships of all types: log , luxury cruise liners, car carriers, US Naval vessels and subs, Coast Guard craft and a multitude of private vessels can be seen almost daily. All large ships require a marine 'Pilot' to navigate the Puget Sound. These pilots are stationed across the bay in front of Chez ZigZag. A bright orange boat ferries these pilots to and from each ship. Use the binoculars to watch them climb the steep stairs up the side of the vessel. Occasionally Orca whales can be seen in the harbor....moreless

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Brent and Amy are both Realtors with Coldwell Banker Uptown. Both are retired from years as Registered Dental Hygienists Brent is an 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 find the Olympic peninsula the most wonderful of all.

Why the Owner Chose Port Angeles, Washington, United States of America:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
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. It is our hope that Chez Zig Zag will not only please, but also exceed your expectations.
