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

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.

Hypnotizing views

  • 5 of 5

Down a little country lane, you approach and open the front door, and in front of you is the most hypnotizing, commanding, ocean view I can remember. With tall glass windows and a large sweeping patio, our group forgot about unpacking, settling in, and simply soaked in the gorgeous ocean setting. The pictures online do not do it justice. If you want serenity this is the place.

Our group of 8 enjoyed our stay, plenty of room, fully equipped kitchen, bbq, and more amenities.You are several miles from town, so bring what you need and settle in. Plenty of bottled water provided for drinking, however we did notice some sulfur smell from the well water when showering. Forget that, just soak in the views.

Luxurious Home with Beautiful Ocean Views - great for family events

  • 5 of 5

My family gathered at the Red Propeller to celebrate my father's 90th birthday. Chris and Darcee answered all inquiries promptly and were very flexible with arrival/departure times. The house is an open concept plan but with roomy private bedrooms. The kitchen was exceptionally well furnished. There is a stunning view of the ocean and mountains - and the Powell River ferry and numerous planes from the military base. Lots of eagles, robins etc. Llamas, alpacas, goats and horses are in a field nearby. It is lovely and quiet as no other houses are nearby. The lawns are great for croquet, bocce and badminton. We will definitely return for a similar function.
