If you want to have your dreams become a reality.... Bay Homes is the company for you!

“When we embarked on our Bach building journey, we had a vision and a dream of creating a space for our family and friends to enjoy for many years to come. Further, we hoped it would be a place that complemented our lifestyle which is centered around the ocean and also to be a haven to relax in at the end of busy working weeks and in holidays. 

Bay Homes more than delivered in all areas and exceeded our expectations. They provided design inspiration and quality workmanship to literally turn our dream into a reality. From the outset we knew we were in a special partnership underpinned by trust which grew as the project progressed. This was essential as a good portion of the build took place during lockdown where we were unable to visit the site and relied on the amazing comms and regular updates from Adam and Deb. This unique situation had us relying heavily on the expertise of the Bay Homes team to take our ideas and provide solutions in all areas ranging from external cladding right down to the fridge and everything in between. They did this so well and although we couldn’t be there, the online platform they created for us and their commitment to keeping us updated is such a credit to them and it gave us the feeling we were there every step of the way.  

We love the Meiklebach and Ruakaka is quickly becoming our special home away from home. If you want to have your dreams become a reality, with exceptional craftmanship, genuine care with a family feel, Bay Homes is the company for you!”

The craftsmanship, knowledge, attention to detail, communication and level of professionalism was exceptional

“Adam, Dave and the Bay Homes families.

From the beginning you have all been a pleasure to work with, the communication went above and beyond especially since we were building from another city, it put our minds at rest knowing every step of the way we were kept in the loop.

Bay Homes... have been fantastic to work with, they feel like family

“Bay Homes are building for us our dream home here in Ruakaka, Bream Bay. They have been fantastic to work with, they feel like family and we look forward to seeing them arrive for the job early each day and catching up with them each afternoon to go over the day. Nothing is a problem and they have always sourced the best materials at the best prices for us. We can highly recommend them to anyone who doesn't want to feel like just being a number, but to know they really care about how our home is going to look when finished. There hasn't been one day when we have doubted our choice of selecting Bay Homes to be our builders!!!”

Their craftsmanship is second to none. Our home is beautifully built and so much care and attention to detail

"Prior to choosing to sign with the Bay Homes team we had looked through countless show homes and met with numerous other local building companies and the moment we met the Bay Homes team they made our choice to sign with them easy. 

They were friendly and incredibly helpful from the start and the entire way through the process. Their craftsmanship is second to none. Our home is beautifully built and so much care and attention to detail has gone into every room. We have now been living in our home for six months and we are yet to find a single fault, we love our home so much! 

The entire team were incredible to deal with throughout the process, they were easy to get in contact with and were quick to respond to any questions that arose for us. They were transparent and honest throughout the whole process when elements came in under budget which we appreciated hugely as we are aware of other companies who do not hold the same level of honesty. They went above and beyond for us and pushed to get us into our home on time. 

They are an incredible company and wonderful people. We would certainly recommend the Bay Homes team and wouldn't ever consider using another company if we were ever lucky enough to build again."

We wanted builders who we could regularly touch base with and bounce ideas off

"In 2019, Bay Homes took on the large renovation and extension of our nearly century old house.

We wanted builders who we could regularly touch base with and bounce ideas off and who really knew building.  The boys were all of this and more and completely took in their stride all of the challenges that our quirky house threw at them.  

The scope of our project involved everything from installing new windows and doors, replacing exterior weatherboards, building a new raised floor in our old garage, building four new rooms and converting a bedroom into a scullery. On top of this, we didn't provide a draughted plan. Bay Homes’ experience and advice was invaluable when it came to layout and sizing of rooms and we were able to make decisions as we went along based on their sound advice.  

Because we planned to live in the house throughout, Bay Homes managed the renovation in two stages and not only were the boys flexible with working around our family, they were also great to have around, so much so that we missed them when they finally signed off on the completed renovation!"

I would highly recommend Adam and Dave of Bay Homes for your building project

I wanted to build a pergola over my main door – it was a small job so I didn’t want to involve an architect. It was great to be able to talk over the design with them – I wanted something unconventional so it took a bit of figuring out. Throughout the project the communications and follow up were great, the job was completed on time and on budget. I am very happy with the finished result – the pergola has a light airy feel – I can see the sky and best of all it keeps the area around the door dry (most of the time). Thanks Adam and Dave it was a pleasure working with you.

We have been very impressed with the workmanship

Bay Homes have completed two projects for us and we have been very impressed with the workmanship and the materials used.

They have great communication from quote to completion. We would certainly recommend them to anyone looking for quality builders at a fair price.

We are really happy with our new deck

Great work from the team at Bay Homes. We are really happy with our new deck and highly recommend for any building project.

The build quality was exceptional, a testament to the experience of the Bay Homes team

“We have no regrets for choosing Bay Homes for our first home build. While it is common to read about building a house being a stressful experience and one not to be repeated, we would have no hesitation to build another house if Bay Homes was involved. It makes a huge difference when the people you communicate with are the qualified builders who will be building your house rather than a project manager with little involvement on site. The build quality was exceptional, a testament to the experience of the Bay Homes team. The Bay Homes team were very easy to deal with and flexible when changes were requested. The quote we received was very attractive compared to the larger group home builders and our home was even delivered within budget, almost unheard of during the difficulties caused by Covid. We highly recommend Bay Homes to others and look forward to working with them again one day.
