Portalis Living

Everyday Living On Your Island Retreat

Easy upkeep and proximity to outdoor activities, restaurants, and shopping increasingly top the priority list of retiree, second-home, and a host of other prospective homebuyers. Portalis offers all this... and much, much more.

Our high-quality, low-maintenance community of 33 free-standing homes and 24 townhomes nestles on a gently sloping hillside in the small city of Anacortes, Washington, on the western edge of Fidalgo Island—the one San Juan Island you can access directly from the mainland without taking a ferry. At Portalis you get all the joys of island living without the challenges.

Island Living, Portalis Style

Take in the awe-inspiring views and inhale the salt air, maybe even stretch your legs with a walk around Washington Park's scenic two-mile loop, or the Guemes Channel Trail. Bird watch or enjoy the sunset at the Ship Harbor Interpretive Preserve. Stop downtown for a cup of coffee or a bite at one of our many great restaurants.

Plan your day with morning coffee from your deck, overlooking the natural and animated marine activities of the Washington State Ferry landing and a dynamic vista of water, islands, and sky.
Surrounded by water yet connected to the mainland by a bridge, Fidalgo Island offers the beauty and convenience of coastal living, the security of a small community where neighbors watch out for each other and the intimacy of a vibrant downtown Anacortes.

The Portalis Community

Portalis overlooks the natural and animated marine activities of the Washington State ferry landing and dynamic San Juan Islands vistas beyond.

A relaxed blend of Pacific Northwest and craftsman-inspired architecture appeals to a multitude of tastes and lifestyles and lends the community a balance of visual variety and harmony.

When completed, Portalis will include a mix of 33 single-family detached homes and 24 townhomes, all lining quiet streets that follow the land's natural contours. In addition, plans are currently being developed to complete the site with a cluster of semi-attached daylight basement homes.

Designed for a carefree lifestyle, exterior home and landscape maintenance is provided by the Portalis Homeowners Association, freeing property owners to play, work, or travel—rather than pull weeds or mow the lawn.
