Here’s what our clients are saying:

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.

Rundle-TaipaWe are delighted with the beach house Coastal Homes has built for us.

We found them professional, helpful, organised and easy to deal with and always willing to accommodate the inevitable changes we dreamt up as the project proceeded. We’d have no hesitation recommending them.

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.”

Camplin-09I 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.

Wright-01It 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.

Bright-TaipaSpecial 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.
