It's been a year since we got handed the keys to our new house built by Coastal Homes. Sonjia and I would like to thank Coastal Homes on the professional way that our build was handled fron the first design concept to the end of the project. We are very pleased with the product that your team, also your contractors have supplied. Thanks again.
I came across Coastal Homes when we were looking for a company to build a project for us at Coopers Beach. This was a fairly challenging architectural house and we couldnt have been happier with how Coastal Homes performed, bringing the house in on expectations of cost and program. They were very professional and reliable and I look forward to working with them again if the opportunity arises. I have no hesitation recommending them.”
When building a home whilst overseas you need a company you can trust. Coastal Homes were professional in every aspect of our build, with regular communication between us and our Architect ensuring we got everything we had asked for. We would recommend Coastal Homes to anyone wishing to build a quality home.

As we were based in Auckland it was important that we found a building partner that were reliable and competent. After enquiring to several local-based businesses, we opted to go with Coastal because of their excellent communication and service which we knew would be essential building from afar. After bearing with us as we finalised our plans, Coastal Homes were always pleasant, patient, and very accommodating to our changing dates and requirements. We found the entire team that managed our project from start to finish excellent. Angela in the office right up until Alicia with the project management were outstanding and professional, we could have not had an easier ride with the build (and we have built before). They made the entire process a breeze, the builder, suppliers and sub-contractors were all great and there were no surprise costs at the end of the project too. Even now with the build complete and paid for, they have still been equally supportive and attentive as we address finishing touches. Thank you to the entire Coastal Homes team that worked on our house, we are glad that we went you for our build!
We employed Coastal Homes to build a holiday home for us up on the Karikari Peninsula. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Glen, Neville, Kayla and the Team at Coastal Homes. They have done an amazing job and well beyond our expectations. They listened to our wants and needs and built. It was as easy as that. If I had any concerns at all the team was easy to contact and nothing was a problem. We are now enjoying the weekends in our new house. If we ever build another home it would definitely be with these guys. Amazing service all round from the administration to the on site work.
I really made a headache for myself and got out of my depth by trying to keep control of building our new home. I eventually got smart and signed with Coastal Homes and thereafter had a huge relief from the relentless onslaught of specialised detail. The biggest plus was having them cut through compliance requirements and project management logistics like a well-oiled machine. They work like a team, give clear concise info and updates and were happy to explain things when I felt I needed to be more in the loop. Invariably after having queries answered I was confident that everything was on track which allowed me to refocus on family and on my own job. Coastal Homes built us an impressive 2 bedroom home which has even exceeded the expectations of my discerning mother-in-law who has built several new homes over the years and subsequently is qualified to comment. The whole project was completed on time and on budget with no more headaches. My guess is that management know full well that they’ve got some really good qualities within their team. I’d be quite happy to sign with this company again.
It is a pleasure to write a reference for you. With the recent completion of our home in Coopers Beach there are many positive and complimentary things to say and we are very happy for you to share them with potential clients. Our first experiences involved getting working drawings completed and being given a fixed quote. These confirmed that a decision to build with Coastal Homes would be the right one and we proceeded. We noted the slogan of Coastal Homes "Just relax and enjoy". Living in Australia, building a home in New Zealand, we were warned by family and friends that we would probably neither relax nor enjoy. Not true - we did both! Coastal Homes follows best practice in all it does. Every request we made was attended to with scrupulous care; emails, phone calls and photos kept us up to date with what was happening over the 5 months of the build; changes we wanted were made seamlessly along the way; we were satisfied that at all times only the highest standard of workmanship and material was acceptable; the entire team working on our project were absolutely professional and accomplished. We made a visit once framing was completed and were able to check the quality of the build at this stage. It surpassed our expectations (and we have builders and engineers in our families!) Now that the build is complete we look back on the process with huge pleasure and at our lovely home with immense delight. We have no hesitation in recommending Coastal Homes to anyone who wants, not only to relax and enjoy the experience of building, but be guaranteed a final product of distinction.

Coastal Homes provided an exceptional building experience from start to finish. The design process was customized to our needs and budget and the build was managed efficiently and effectively with a focus on quality and customer satisfaction. The build started ahead of schedule and was completed to a high standard with excellent customer service and project management. The end result exceeded our expectations and the customer service was excellent, with quick resolution to any issues. The builders were highly skilled and friendly, and the team remained responsive even after the build was complete and paid for, making our experience a positive one.
It is my pleasure to do a testimonial for Coastal Homes who recently built my new home in Cable Bay. Because I was working in Auckland I needed to engage a reputable firm to do the whole project for me including all Architectural works, Council consents/permits, Utilities, Tradesmen etc, with as few encumbrances on me as possible. From the moment I met with Glen Bradbury and the Coastal Homes Team I was immediately comfortable that my build was in capable hands with people of good integrity, and this was bourn out during the job. We agreed a design and a price, and signed a Master Builders agreement. From there everything continued like clockwork. My main point of contact was their excellent Project Manager Alicia Mavis, who sent me photos every week and ensured I was kept fully informed as to progress throughout the whole job. When I had to do any inspections as per the Master Builders agreement, Alicia walked me through the site, introduced me to all the tradesmen, and answered every question I had. She also liaised with me with advice and better alternatives on some of my choices for the fitout. The Coastal Homes Estimation, Admin, Finance, and Trades people were also professional, friendly, and easy to deal with and their processes were straight forward. The handover was a dream and Glen’s after sales support is second to none. If you are building a new home in this area, I highly recommend engaging with the Coastal Homes Team.
Special thanks on the way you completed our home in Taipa, Far North, NZ. With the difficulty in building a home while living overseas (Perth, Western Australia), you made it an easy process. From the start (actually signed contract via email) we never saw any part of the process until handover. At that point we had a visual expectation of what we hoped it would look like. On arrival it met and EXCEEDED our expectations. A wonderfully completed home finished perfectly. We loved the progress photos and the continued updates from Mark. Special thanks to him and Celina for their patience with our email enquiries on some of the Kiwi terminologies (very different to what we were used in West Oz). We would also say your professionalism was outstanding and the after sales service has been at the same level "Above Expectation". We would have no hesitation in recommending your services to any of your future/potential clients and you are welcome to pass on our contact details."
Thank you Glen and Coastal Homes. I am very happy with my new home. When I decided to build I wanted to deal with one contractor and have them handle all the extra sub-contractors etc. Coastal Homes were willing to adapt their house plan to accommodate changes I wanted made, both structurally and fittings. The management/office staff were friendly and helpful and the builders did a wonderful job. Their quality workmanship and attention to detail is evident in the completed home. I was kept in the picture with progress reports and enjoyed the supervised site visits. It was an exciting day when I was handed the keys and was able to move in.
