Thank you so much for building our awesome new home! A beautiful warm healthy home for bub!
To Whom it may concern;
Jennian Homes built a new 4 bedroom 2 storey home for us in Marlin St Whitianga. It was a long process of deciding what design & materials to use and Billy, Haley & Steve were very patient. The ideas, and advice we got shows how professional the team is & it certainly made the decision to build with them easy.
It was a very exciting time when the build started & I can’t say enough about the high knowledge & workmanship of Chris & Wayne. Any small problems were quickly sorted & once again it was comforting being able to seek the advice of experienced builders.
Steve gave me an estimate of 6 months to build and came in right on target, even though getting to a closed in stage was right through the winter. Steve and Haley have put together a great team of subcontractors and it shows in the finished product. Choosing colours for paint, floor coverings etc (something I’m not good at) was made very easy with a visit to Yellow Fox in Auckland. The design & finish of the kitchen was top notch & I love everything about the house
Thank you for a stressless build and we would certainly recommend to anyone to build with Jennian Homes Coromandel

My name is Colleen McKay and I live on the reserve at Moana Point in Whangamata in my dream home.
Now those that know me know there is not anything I do that I don’t do properly…and they also know my sense of humour. So in late 2012 when I purchased a very run down but much lived in family home…my kids immediately said, “mother has lost the plot!”
Jennian came on board and from the moment I met with the team at Jennian, ie. Billy, Haley, Steve, and Chris I knew my friends and my children would soon eat their words! These guys were amazing from the beginning to the completion of the project. This was a huge undertaking for me being a widow in later life and I put my whole trust in this team of professionals….and let me tell you, they did not let me down.
They started work on the house in February 2014 and I shifted into my lovely home early July 2014.
I loved every step of the way and the sub-contractors soon became close friends along with Kane the Builder and his building team. They were excellent to work with and nothing was too much trouble….and you know how little (nearly) old ladies change their minds. The whole process was enjoyable and I would do it again with Jennian. They were excellent to deal with.
So the little run down house became POHUTUKAWA LODGE and my children and friends love it…but not as much as I do!!
Thank you Steve and Haley for the amazing experience, and for my beautiful house. It was such fun… I will possibly do it all again one day and definitely with Jennian.
The Jennian Team under the guidance of Steve and Hayley were extremely professional in their dealings with us. Their communication and up-dates were really appreciated. We were always involved as the project moved throughout the building phase. They understood the vision that we wanted to create and kept within our budget constraints. Hayley’s interior design knowledge and ideas were well received. We are very happy with our home and have no hesitation in recommending Jennian Homes Coromandel.
Kind regards – Bronwen & Greg Burmester

We recently finished a large renovation at our property in Pauanui and we were privileged enough to have this done by your Whangamata branch operators Steve and Haley Trebilco.
We are taking this opportunity to express our thanks to them and compliment them on an the amazing job they did for us not only on budget (yes there were a few additions also but this I would think would be normal) but also on time completed with a code of compliance Anything we asked for during the build was never any bother.
They did our job efficiently and effetely and we are thrilled to bits with the finished project.
Our journey started with a visit from Billy Mulvihill their sales/design person he delivered to us within a few days what we had asked for with virtually no alterations (we may mention here we had been working with and architect for 9 months prior and felt very disappointed).
Once the contract was signed it was all go starting after the 8th August 2014 and we were handed the keys on the 20th December 2014.
It was lovely to receive a crystal image of our house this has been greatly admired and on hand over to also receive a lovely booklet with all the relevant documents for the build a lovely touch.
We cannot speak highly enough of this franchise team they are a credit to you.
You always hear about the things that go wrong this time we wanted to express our delight on a job well done and as a finished project actually looks better than expected.
Regards – Ian and Jacqui Findlay
With Jennian, and in particular, Steve, Hayley and Chris, anything is possible. It’s hard to remember what the old house looked like as the change is so vast and the new house is so wonderful and warm and dry! We know this project turned into a bigger one than any of us anticipated, and may in fact have given you a few grey hairs and us too. But the end result is fantastic and we are very pleased. You have a good team and we have appreciated the professionalism, competence and quality work you have delivered.
Thank you again for the fantastic 3d glass image of the house, it’s a very good idea and a great keepsake. We hope you have a lovely Christmas and a bit of time off to relax and de-stress before the New Year begins and more homes are built. Hopefully the sun shines for most of the holidays – think we have had enough rain now to last for months!
Kind Regards – Ren and Thelma
Thank you so much for everything! We absolutely LOVE our new home, and your team made the whole experience so effortless and enjoyable. It is still hard to believe it’s ours – this time last year a new bach wasn’t even on our radar.
It has been an absolute pleasure working with you all. We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Enjoy your well-deserved holiday and we will catch up for celebratory drinks in the new year.
Cheers guys, kind regards,
Mike, Nicki, Benjamin, Max and Luke Riordan.
We found the building of the house stress free. Because we were so busy at work and couldn’t come over very often, it was wonderful to go to the Jennian website and look at your regular photo updates so that we could see what was happening and the progress made.
We are thrilled with the house and are looking forward to being able to enjoy it. We will catch up with you sometime in the New Year.
All the best to everyone
Jude and Allan Kempthorne
The dwelling we’ve had built by Jennian Coromandel is the fourth dwelling we’ve had built and it’s been by far the smoothest and least stressful build of the four. From design through to final details of the build Jennian have managed to build extremely efficiently and have been open and responsive to any issues we’ve raised. We would recommend considering Jennian to anyone interested in building on the Coromandel.

Aloha – Steve, Haley & the Jennian Coromandel team. Now that we are home from spending the summer holidays in our newly completed Jennian bach, we just wanted to write and thank you.
The result has been more than we dreamed of. It has been a very busy holiday with friends and family all proudly being shown through. I am pleased to say that they were all extremely impressed, with many commenting on both the design features and the space. From the start, we were impressed with Haley’s eye for design and detail. It certainly helped us when deciding what we needed and liked.
Thank you Haley – you had to interpret some of our ideas, but you were always accommodating and your advice was valued. We are not new to the building or renovating process, and it was great to see things go as smoothly as is possible with our bach-building project. Paul was very pleased with the way Steve kept in touch and appreciated the straight-forward and honest approach. The finished product was delivered within budget and any queries or changes were accommodated without any fuss.Christine – thank you for always having a smile on your face and helping us to decide on products and materials etc. You were very efficient and seemed to sort things really quickly. We know it is not an easy job dealing with all the different personalities and being the conduit between the customer and the supplier, but you did well and we appreciate it. When we first decided to build, we had concerns that not living in the town where the building was being done was going to be an issue. This turned out not to be the case with you guys.
The “My Jennian” website was kept up-to-date by Christine and we could see the progress being made from our home computer. As we mentioned earlier, we have built before and have found it to be quite stressful. In this project however, that was not the case. We are delighted with our new holiday home.
Thanks again Steve, Haley, Christine, Sam, Dean and all your subbies. We are very proud of our bach and we would be happy to recommend Jennian Coromandel to anyone looking to build or renovate on the peninsula. As we mentioned Steve, please feel free to show potential customers through our bach if they would like to see what you can deliver. Kind regards and the very best wishes for the future.
Paul, Jo, Grace & Finn Mason.
Letter Of Referral – Jennian Homes Coromandel
We are the current owners 316 Papanui Road, Whangamata, and engaged Jennian Homes Coromandel LTD to construct a new 3 bedroom dwelling and separate garage I sleep out at this property August 2009. Following our initial meeting on the bare section where Stephen Trebilco proved to me he had great ability to listen to our requirements and took time to discuss various options and offer advice on our concept design sketches. I am a professional quantity surveyor in the industrial commercial sector of the construction industry, I have also project managed the construction of a number of new dwellings and extension projects as personal property developments. From the experience on those projects I decided that having a group housing company such as Jennian Homes to complete the entire project as a turnkey package would not only be the most cost effective way but the most time efficient way of completing this project in Whangamata.
We approached a number of builders for pricing and although Jennian Homes Coromandel were marginally more expensive on this project I was satisfied that they had prepared a comprehensive bid and I believed there was less commercial risk to us in using this company.
Jennian Homes Coromandel developed our design concept and took ownership of the entire construction process as a design and build turnkey package which included all site works, construction and complete interior fit out including appliances, floor coverings and window treatments. As the project went so smoothly we extended the scope to include full landscaping and provision of all external paths and drive ways. Some of the external work was completed on a collaborative working agreement where the work was completed on an open book basis; this work was not only completed on time but within the suggested budget allowances.
Our contract included a time for completion and this was met by Jennian Homes Coromandel and in addition the majority of the additional external work such as paths and drive ways were also completed within the original time for completion. We can confirm that the work was completed to a high standard and there were a number of items not completely specified by us such as the kitchen and bathroom fit out, these were completed using quality products and at no time did we feel that cheap materials were used to maximise the builders profit, which is a common practice in the construction industry.
Stephen Trebilco is a man of good character, his trade skills are extremely good and he is very fussy and ensued the work was completed to a very high standard. The sub-contractors used on site were also good trades people, defects were minimal and rectified promptly when identified. We received regular correspondence a updates on progress via e-mail, at times we received daily photographs by e-mail which was fantastic us being so far from site it made us feel that we were really part of the project.
From the outset one of my strict requirements was for Stephen Trebilco to get on and get the job done and our commitment in return was to pay the progress payments for work done promptly and for each of us to respect the terms and conditions of contract. I can confirm that Stephen Trebilco and I honoured that commitment to each other and there is now a relationship of mutual trust and understanding, my advice would be to follow this lead as it is a win I win for both parties.
We are currently looking for another development in Whangamata, the next development will be undertaken by Stephen Trebilco through direct negotiation. I believe this is an indication of how well this project went and the level of respect and trust I place with him. Should anyone be considering engaging Jennian Homes Coromandel LTD to complete any construction work I can recommend this company without reservation when dealing with Stephen Trebilco and his team.
Dear Steve, Haley, Billy and the Jennian Team,
Thanks so much for all your hard work, best decision ever to choose Jennian! Best service from the moment we walked in and met Billy, we really felt like part of the team. We love our house and have really enjoyed the journey…might do it all again some day!
Thanks again from Owen, Tessa, Alyssa and Tillie.
We thoroughly enjoyed the process of building our new home in Whitianga with Jennian Homes Coromandel Limited (“Jennian”).
They listened patiently to all our requirements and proactively made numerous valuable suggestions when they thought we could improve on what we were proposing.
We initially dealt with Billy in formulating our concept and then our detailed design. Dealings were then with Steve and Haley, and with Chris on the delivery. All four were a pleasure to interact with and added real value to the process. Communications were straightforward and transparent and they have a genuine, natural focus on customer satisfaction.
In addition, Jennian used a loyal and skilled team of subcontractors who performed on time and to the required standard.
Our home was finished at the agreed price (subject to some variations we requested along the way) and ahead of the expected completion date. We are very happy with it and we have no hesitation in recommending Jennian.
Tim and Bindee Holland
