Very positive and enjoyable building project.NSW, Mirador
We are very happy with our experience with the team at Hotondo Mirador and have just recently taken possession of our new house. The build started efficiently and finished on the exact date of completion in the contract. Not being located close by, we were provided with photos and updates regularly. Workmanship has been of a very high standard and the site was kept very clean and tidy. The project was completed right on budget, with no nasty surprises. We have no hesitation in recommending Hotondo Mirador and congratulate them on a successful project.... Read more
Building with hotondo homesQLD, Browns Plains
Building with hotondo homes logan, signing up and meeting the team was exciting for my wife young daughter and I being our first home and new to Building we thought yay this is going to be awesome. The plans went along some what smoothly and emails flowed nicely, after our 1st payment things started changing slightly wife emails in regards to some changes that she wanted no response. It took sometime for the plans to be signed off by this stage we noted that the changes were not going to happen and the delays so far were disappointing. Unf... Read moreortunately it didn't get better unanswered emails and if they were it was because they were wanting something, unanswered phone calls and messages with no response. Delays along delays throughout the build the BIGGEST being the POWER connection failed attempt after failed attempts, air-conditioning ran to the wrong side of the house that was emailed to them about but no reply at this stage gyprock had not been installed so at that stage would have been a easy fix but no. The state our site NEW HOME looked was disgusting there was never a skip bin or section off area for the rubbish and was just dumped in a pile across the back of the property very disheartened as it looked terrible and we didn't want to show our family any photos of our what should have been exciting build. Attached are photos that can be seen from road and car park. Lock up stage inspection found some issues 1 still being the aircon I brought to the supervisor's attention this is were he said just let me pull up the plans, that will have to be fixed so the walls need to be patched and new lines run to the other side of house with this being said now the pipe work has to run down the wall external with a plastic cover not overly impressed as we sent email that never got answered and could have easily stopped this. We booked a walk through with the supervisor to see how things were coming along we arrived and [Name Removed] was not there we rang and to our surprise he had forgotten 1hr latter he arrived. When we finally started the walk through we noticed that a manhood had been draw on the inside of our house on the dinning room wall we were disappointed and discussed at this as our 10yr old daughter was with us. We also brought to [Name Removed]'s attention the kitchen cabinets were wrong. Moving forward our lease in our current house was coming up to be resigned we emailed asking would our house be finished before our lease was up we were told yes, unfortunately this was not the case our power STILL has not been connected at this time after many failed attempts because it had been deemed in a unsuitable position they decided to move it. Our lease is now up and we had to move and put house belongings into storage UNFORTUNATELY we never got a follow up email or phone call apologising for the STRESS that this has now caused or any sort of compensation. We all had to separate and live with friends and family. This has been one of our worst experiences and has put us off thinking of building another like we had planned, definitely not a exciting experience nor enjoyed.
Beautiful HomeQLD, Mackay
We recently had the privilege of building with Hotondo Homes Mackay and cannot fault them! With advice and guidance from Anthony and Lynelle, we were able to design our dream home. From start to finish, the entire build process was easy and enjoyable. The quality and finishes are second to none. Highly recommend building with Anthony and his team!... Read more
Approachable, easy to work with, high quality builderNSW, Campbelltown
We recently finished building a house with Hotondo Homes – Campbelltown for a new home build in Gymea Bay.
From first quoting the build all the way through to final completion and occupational certificate we spoke directly to Justin. He oversaw the entire project and dealt with all issues both small and large in a timely and efficient manner. He made sure no query went unanswered and was polite and courteous in all communication.
The build quality of the home was to a high standard throughout. No shortcuts were taken and we were thoroughly satisfied with the result.
I highly recommend Justin and the team at Hotondo Homes – Campbelltown and will hopefully use them again in the future.
Thankyou Justin!... Read more

Hotondo Homes Bendigo - New Home BuildVIC, Bendigo
We recently had a home built in Bendigo by Hotondo Homes.
It was a pleasure to deal with them and right from the initial discussion to the final handover there were absolutely no issues. Minor changes were handled in a fair and pleasant manner.
The home was completed 2 weeks ahead of schedule and during the final inspection we were unable to find anything that needed further attention.
Both Jenny Cushing on the Sales and Concept side and Kyle Patten on Project Management were a pleasure to deal with.
I have no hesitation in recommending Hotondo Bendigo to any prospective buyer.
All good things come to those who are PatientNSW, Ulladulla
To be honest My Wife and I are truly Grateful for South Coast Hotondo who delivered our beautiful new home in great time, as the team took on our build knowing we were in a flood zone area where we were restricted to having a custom design build.
We thank the entire South Coast Hotondo team who made this transition of design to exchanging contracts to building/construction and hand over period as smooth as possible, whilst engaging local businesses and trades who provided great workmanship with the end result being a quality build.
Thank you... Read more to the Building Supervisor [Name Removed] a brilliant tradesman and individual who went above and beyond. Thank you [Name Removed] who is in the fortunate and unfortunate position to deliver the good and the bad news at times, He was always approachable friendly and helpful and being true to his word with every letter of the contract and sorted any issues especially when having to chase down the different tradesman to rectify any faults during the 3 month maintenance period. I would highly recommend [Name Removed], [Name Removed], [Name Removed] and their team at South Coast Hotondo for a custom design build.
A Positive ExperienceNSW, Batemans Bay
Found the Hotondo Homes Batemans Bay team to be extremely supportive, informative and professional during every stage of the build. Not having any new build experience, the team were happy to engage in any enquiries I had, and there were many. Have found the quality of work carried out by all trades to be very high, any issues that arose were managed quickly and effectively. The selection process was simple and easy and the team offered support and consultation during every step. All costings were transparent and I was well informed up front on what the total build would be. Would highly recommend Hotondo Batemans Bay.... Read more

The best decision of my lifeVIC, Warragul
I always wanted to build a house for my first home. Everything new and my choice of colors.
The sanctuary 234 was decided on, I bought the block within a week signed contracts. Soon I was picking out colors with expert advice from Maddi. After visiting display homes and looking at a number of builders, there was always plus extra for this, plus extra for that. The prices always blew out and like everyone I had to have a budget. I always walked away disheartened and went back to established homes. After not finding what I needed. I found a b

Sam is an absolute gem, he won't let you downVIC, Pakenham
We had the pleasure of working closely with Sam from Hotondo Homes Pakenham for over a year as we embarked on the journey to build our dream home. From the outset, Sam distinguished himself with his unwavering commitment, exceptional communication skills, and an unparalleled level of dedication.
Sam became more than just our main contact person; he was a true partner in the process. Despite the unfortunate turn of events that led us to withdraw from the project, our disappointment is overshadowed by the immense gratitude we feel for the outsta...

His communication was impeccable, ensuring that we were well-informed and comfortable at every step of the way. Sam went above and beyond, tirelessly addressing our concerns and working diligently to bring our dream house plans to life. While circumstances prevented us from realizing our dream home with Hotondo Homes, we wholeheartedly recommend Sam and the entire team.

New HomeQLD, Pialba
We are very pleased with the home that Hotondo Homes, Hervey Bay delivered. [Name Removed], [Name Removed] and the team are both friendly and professional creating a great working enviroment which inspired confidence that we had made the right decision when choosing them as our builders.
They engaged local trades who provided great workmanship and readily interacted with us whenever we were onsite. The end result was a quality build delivered within set timelines. We chose Hotondo Homes initially as they were the only builder who listened to... Read moreus and built exactly what we asked for, as they have an inhouse Architect who allowed us to design our vision drawing up plans and then adjusting them as required. Contractual costs were clearly outlined from the onset and did not change unless we adjusted them to include a last minute upgrade. That in its self is a feat as it was done through Covid. Any issues were resolved as soon as they occurred and we were kept informed every step of the build. Communications were effective outling what was happening and when the next step would commence. All in all, thank you [Name Removed], [Name Removed] and the team at Hotondo Homes Hervey Bay for providing us with a home we can enjoy for many years. We would whole heartedly recommend them if you are looking a build team you can trust.
We are in loveQLD, Mackay
The team at Hotondo Mackay are amazing. The entire build process was so smooth and they dealt with our thousands of questions without any hassle or drama. We chose the Kirkby 259 layout which is perfect for our growing family.
The picking of colours was so easy and the budget was kept to. The build site was always kept very tidy during construction as well and they also accommodated to our site visits. The house is beautiful inside and out, without any faults. We are extremely happy with the results of the building process. We are so thankful that we were able to build with Hotondo Mackay.
Hotondo Homes Shellharbour - AmazingNSW, Shellharbour
Hotondo Homes Shellharbour were absolutely amazing. Having been let down by a previous builder Hotondo Homes came to the rescue. We've done two duplex builds with Hotondo both commencing just before Covid hit. I could not have asked for a better builder to work with through extremely challenging times. The team at Hotondo did everything they could to ensure my two builds were completed and delivered with the highest standard. During a time of rising costs, labour and material shortages along with inclement weather, the team at Hotondo powered on. I would highly recommend these guys as a builder and cant wait to do my next build with them. I'll be back!!!!!... Read more
Questions & Answers
When can we expect the replacement fence panel that was dented by your concrete contractors AUGUST 2022 and that you promised to replace? It has only been 15 months.
Our team has spoken with the Bundaberg office and we have been advised a replacement fence panel has been ordered and will be fixed in the coming weeks. Please let us know if you require any further assistance.
You must be very pleased with your Bundaberg Franchisee....Fence panel now ordered and will be fixed in coming weeks.....IT HAS BEEN AWAITING REPLACEMENT SINCE AUGUST 2022......SIXTEEN MONTHS AGO!!!!!!!!! AND REPLACEMENT JUST ORDERED....COMPLETE AND UTTER DISRESPECT AND YOUR CLIENTS
When can we expect to have the Fence Panel installed...that you damaged in 2022 and promised to replace.House in Fraser Avenue Bargara Headlands.
Sorry Michael I cannot help, unfortunately sounds to me that your Hotondo Franchise is not as reliable as the Hotondo South Coast/Nowra owners of the franchise they would have it fixed in no time and most likely wouldn’t allow the fence to be damaged in the first place.
Don’t give in keep at them and hopefully you have a win.
