About Chris and Darcee Kane-White

Chris and Darcee have lived in the valley for over 20 years. We have traveled extensively and would not want to live anywhere else in the world. We live on the same 5 acre property, completely separate from the guest house. We handle all our bookings and deal with our guests directly.

Chris and Darcee Kane-White purchased this house in 2013

Why Chris and Darcee Kane-White chose Comox Valley

Spectacular view.

Convenient location.

Total privacy.

Fabulous new home.

What makes this house unique

This property offers the utmost privacy. Your nearest neighbors are llamas, alpacas, goats and ponies who you can talk to through the fence. We think the view is the best in the world but we are somewhat biased. Only minutes to the town of Comox and the city of Courtenay.

Our Very Merry Christmas Vacation (December 22-29, 2016)

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home, great location! The ambiance of this beautiful home has all the comfort and perfect conveniences including the incredible ocean and mountain views! Thank you Chris and Darcee for decorating your lovely vacation property for the Christmas season, making our Christmas with our family a special one. We all, including our grandchildren, absolutely love your place, your dogs and the Alpaca and Lama farm next door too! With minutes to the ferry, airport, Costco, Thrifty’s Food, Aquatic Centre etc. was just like being at home. Playing Ping-Pong to enjoying our long walks along the beach watching all the wildlife, we couldn’t have asked for a better vacation spot.

Beautiful House and Location

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for a few days for a family get-together and regretted we couldn't spend longer there. It was pretty much perfect! The house is set on a hill above the beach, and the coastal views from the living room are stunning. We were torn between exploring the surrounding area and enjoying the beautiful house as both were great. The house has large, comfy beds (with good sheets), multiple bathrooms, and a huge well-equipped kitchen, as well as a ping-pong table which provided the opportunity for lots of fun. Nearby are scenic Seal Bay and Kitty Coleman parks, both next to the shore. The former has a network of trails, and yes we did see seals. The brave among us swam at a nearby sandy beach. The hosts, Chris and Darcee, really made everything easy by communicating promptly to my emails and requests and by providing everything one could possibly need in a vacation property. Loved everything about the house and area and want to return ... but for longer!

An amazing home

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED our rental. The weather was perfect, the house accommodations were wonderful and the views were out of National Geographic!

It was so relaxing and yet invited conversations. The llamas, alpacas and rabbits plus local deer provided extra entertainment!

A fully equipped kitchen plus laundry room and multiple bathrooms made for a perfect holiday.

PS...Darcee and Chris live below and are such a vibrant cute couple.

PSS...the cruise ships passing through the Georgia strait made for a great show too.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful it has everything you need and the view is amazing! Chris and Darcee were gracious hosts. They made us feel very welcome and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and getting to know them. The large private lawn was great for the kids to play on and the beach was great for relaxing and exploring. I would highly recommend the Red Propeller house to anyone who is going to Vancouver Island.

The Red Propeller Guest House was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My family & I stayed at The Red Propeller Guest House during the last week of July and absolutely loved this home. All the rooms were very clean and well kept plus the layout of the home was just perfect for all of us. If you want to stay in a great home with great views and plenty of suggestions about places to go and things to do, then this is your place! Chris & Darcee really know how to accommodate their guests!
