Vaughan & Joanne Crang – December 2017:
“Coastwood Homes were fantastic to deal with. Ours was probably not the most straight forward of homes but nothing was ever a problem – communication was top notch & we ended up with a home better than we could have imagined. We recommend Lockwood Homes & Coastwood Homes to anyone wanting to build. We’d do it all again in a heartbeat just to work with the fabulous team of Glenn, Katie, Izzy, Griff & Brook again. Only problem is it’ll be a long long time before we consider moving!”
David Lee & Nadienne Hutson – October 2017:
“Glenn & Katie could have not done more to ensure the project went smoothly. Communication was clear, concise & timely. Everything was completed as promised & we are very happy with our new home. A big thank you to everyone at Coastwood Homes!”
The Lockwood Team, A very big thank you to you all. We are very happy with our completed building. Also thank you for the beautiful flowers, wine, photos etc. I would specially like to say a big thank you to you Katie for being so helpful in making the decisions so easy for me. You are a GREAT TEAM. I would recommend you all to anyone. I know as a family we will get a lot of pleasure for many years out of your new building. Thank you again and all the best to you all. – Peg Purdie
Dear Mr La Grouw, We would like to express our sincere thanks for the lovely gift of two luxury Dressing gowns that you sent us on the completion of the re-siting of our new Lockwood Show Home previously sited at Kopu, Thames. They were (and are) the icing on the cake following on from our home purchase. We also owe our thanks to Coastwood Homes who are a very professional, friendly and helpful team (but especially Katie McDonald) who bent over backwards to meet our requests and delivered the house in the agreed time to Matarangi on the Coromandel. We love our new holiday home and the process was made incredibly smooth and easy (at least for us) by the great team at Coastwood Homes, Thames. My parents bought and assembled one of the early Lockwood Homes at Riversdale Beach on the Wairarapa Coast in 1958 that my brother now owns, and we have many happy memories of holidays spent there so it is an added satisfaction that we are able to enjoy the next generation of a Lockwood home. – Chris and Brian Duffy
