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

Bedrooms 2
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 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. You will be blessed.

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.

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 & Pacific Coast

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.

Beautiful, comfortable and convenient apartment

  • 4 of 5

After the initial disappointment and inconvenience of not being able to enter the apartment when we first arrived, we were compensated by the beautiful apartment with an amazing view. The apartment was comfortable, clean and beautifully decorated. The apartment is a few minutes walk from the main street with restaurants and shopping and is also convenient for Olympic National Park. We loved the view over the water and enjoyed the sunrise one morning. The bathroom heated floor was also great!

Great home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

The killer view and comfy apartment description is spot-on. The proximity of downtown restaurants and shops was perfect. We didn't get the chance to enjoy the outdoor amenities, but did get to experience Ediz Hook. Everyone here is so friendly! This town is our idea of paradise, and Chez Zig Zag is the ideal base. Cannot wait to come back, hopefully permanently! Thank you Amy and Brent!

Wonderful Views and Location

  • 5 of 5

Thanks so much for letting us stay in your apartment. It was very nice and we had a great time. I loved sitting in the window seats and watching the activity. My husband and daughter are coming back in a month and I know they will be very happy to be there. Hope we didn't make too much noise we tried hard not to disturb you. Love all your wind chimes also.

Relaxing, Beautiful, and always a Joy!

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay at the Chez Zig Zag. The property is beautiful and well maintained. The beds are extremely comfortable and the bathroom is otherworldly. My only gripe is that I couldn't stay longer than two nights. Sitting at the kitchen table you get a view of the bay that is worth more than words can describe. Trust me, give it a shot and you'll know. Amy and Brent are very friendly and have created a small slice of heaven. Thanks and to those of you reading this, enjoy your stay!

Great location, warm, roomy, most enjoyable.

  • 5 of 5

The property owners take great care in their apartment, Chez Zig Zag. Clean, fully equipped and a view that money can't touch. The "Zig Zag" is quite a nice touch. Easy walk from the top of the hill overlooking downtown and the bay to the bottom in five easy zigs/zags. This place is a great place to make as your base and tour around this beautiful part of the USA. Highly, recommended.

Fabulous apartment!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were at Chez Zig Zag from 8/27-8/31/16. The unit is sparkling clean and Amy has decorated it using beautiful tiles, comfortable furnishings, decorator fabrics and wonderful paint colors. Move over, HGTV!

Pt Angeles is a great location for day trips to Hurricane Ridge, Crescent Lake, waterfalls & Sequim. Discovery Trail is right there along with good restaurants and grocery stores.

The beauty didn't end with our daily return to CZZ! The back garden, with its covered patio, raised vegetable beds, lovely flowering borders, fruit trees and trellised brambles, was our "Welcome home" each day. The front yard is great for a relaxing glass of wine while grilling or enjoying a fire (sadly, burn ban in effect while we were there). Upstairs, the couch and window seat were favorite perches for viewing the harbor with its ever changing activities. Great view from the kitchen table prolonged our mealtimes.

Amy and Brent were available and accommodating but never invasive. We'd never have known about Murdoch Beach without their input.

Check in is between 4 and 7 PM. All children (REGARDLESS OF AGE), are counted as guests in figuring the total charge. A FIFTH GUEST is allowed ONLY IF under 12 months and able to sleep in the port-a-crib. VRBO now adds a "service fee" that we have no control over, nor do we receive, or approve of. To off-set this fee we are discontinuing our "cleaning fee" forthwith. IF CANCELLED WITHIN 30 DAYS one half of the days cancelled are credited for a future stay at Chez Zig Zag. If it is an odd number, the lesser "half" is credited. (Please NOTE - We do not negotiate rates or cancellation policy.)
