Jenn’s List (Part 3)

Craigslist, Angie's List, Jenn's List!

Not to be outdone by the popular Craigslist and Angie's List, our Port Biologist created her own list—Jenn's List—of items found in the Tideflats. Just in time for vacation season, we have your getaway ready and waiting! Sort of.


Nostalgia at its finest! Experience history before it’s too late (sorry, it’s too late). Enjoy all the sights, sounds and smells of a horror movie set on a ferry that only the Kalakala can provide.

For the Sports Fan
Extremely Exclusive Offer

Hey Sports Fans! Love to get away, but can’t miss a day on the court? This is the getaway for you. It comes with an extremely private basketball hoop (no court) you get all to yourself and your friends! Who’s up for some 3 on 3?

We Provide the Air, You Provide the B&B
Waterfront Getaway

What’s not to love about an unobstructed beachfront view with plenty of fresh air? Resort style lounge chairs will make you feel like you’re staying at the Ritz but at a fraction of the price! Now for the fine print:

  • You provide the bed and the breakfast; currently unable to locate lounge chairs, but outdoor dinette is available. 
  • Must have TWIC card to apply.
  • Hi-viz vest and safety gear highly recommended.

Empty Nest Package
Small but cozy

This one is for all you Empty Nesters (or wish-to-be empty nesters)! Complete with real 100% goose down bed. Space is limited; must be okay with Engineers occasionally banging on the window. Sorry, Mother Goose not available at this time.

Air Boats & Buoys
Your choice – enjoy a spacious deck or get that contained feeling

Ahoy Matey! This spacious rental on the water will awaken the Sea Captain within. Gaze up at the stars while lounging on-deck, or if you need to feel tucked in at night make yourself at home in one of the shipping containers. Owner not responsible for renter waking up at a different port-of-call.

Vintage Charm with a Saline Pool
Re-energize yourself at a Steam Plant

Vintage charm without the modern touches. Use your imagination to resurrect a 1920s era Steam Plant as you lounge in a saline pool, with direct connection to the Hylebos Waterway. Please wear a swimsuit when enjoying the pool (life jacket also recommended). No other amenities provided.

Authentic Industrial Chic

Get that real industrial vibe when you enter into this pre-modern warehouse gem. Complete with lead paint and asbestos, it even offers a side of mold growth to tingle the senses. But hurry! This limited time offer expires when the building gets demolished.

Environmental connection

To date, the port has returned more than 420 acres of property with legacy contamination to productive use. We work closely with local, state and federal agencies to ensure these properties have institutional controls in place to protect our environment into the future. The port currently has 24 properties in different stages of the cleanup process; from preliminary investigation to long-term monitoring. While they may not be the best locations for your next vacation, we are working hard to ensure these properties can be utilized for years to come.
