Our Approach

Chris & Darcee

We've lived in the Comox Valley for over 20 years and built the guest house in 2012, this sparked the idea of sharing the tranquility with others. So, with the help of Vacation Rental by Owner (VRBO) here we are. We live in the yellow home down on the beach with our 2 dogs, 2 cats and an assortment of chickens. You may find a dozen farm fresh eggs in the fridge upon your arrival - if the "girls" feel like laying.

We welcome guests from all over the world to enjoy the serenity of The Red Propeller Guest House and property. We look forward to meeting you soon!

Our Story


Stella & Chopper

Stella is the Noble Guardian of the Red Propeller. You will most likely only see her on her daily walks with Chris and Darcee.

Chopper is the Man About Town. He's personable and always on the lookout for a meal. Please do not feed him as he will pull up a chair and stay the night!

Inga and Magda are our two feline friends. You won't see these two as they are true scaredy cats.


Why the Red Propeller?

When you arrive you will see a very large red propeller to the left of the entrance gate. It was here when we bought the property. We liked it and Darcee decided to spiff it up and give it a coat of glossy red paint. We embraced it wholeheartedly and even created a special Red Propeller cocktail (see the recipe below).


So is it "Propeller" or "Propellor"?

Now, which is it "propeller" or "propellor"?
Well actually the spelling situation is interesting: "propeller" is used in North America. While the "or" version is British. So actually, both versions are correct.
