Below you can find testimonials by some of our previous customers.

If you want perfection and professionalism, excellent service and quality when building your home then look no further. It was a pleasure to deal with Ben in Sales and George and Jimmy the firm's partners. All the trades involved in the build produced a great standard of work and were a pleasure to be involved with. In the end we felt like we were part of the Tropical Lifestyle Home

My partner and I built our dream home with Tropical Lifestyle Homes and we could not be happier . Jimmy , George , Ben and the whole team were a pleasure to deal with and helped me with any enquiry I had along the way ( I had many ) from the very first time we met with Jimmy we knew that he was professional & reliable and we could trust in him and the team to give us the home we have always wanted and they did . I would recommend Tropical Lifestyle Homes to anyone looking for a quality home but also a builder who can deliver on time & who will be there to answer any questions you have along the way. I can't say Thank you enough for what you have done for us & will be forever grateful.

If you don't want to be ripped off... build with these guys.

We just got our keys for our new home today and thoroughly recommend Tropical Lifestyle Homes. The slab went down in Feb... the keys to our home in our hands just over 4 months later.

..and it's the details that make the difference.
600mm tiles, stone bench tops, rendered block exterior & interior walls, Invisiguard security screens and doors, bathroom tiles from floor to ceiling, tiled skirting throughout and exceptional finishes... all standard.

Great results in good time.
They deliver what they promise.
No hidden costs... no bull$#!+.

Thanks Jimmy & George.... and thanks to you also Ben.
Great work from all.

We approached Jimmy to construct us 2 x Land & House investment properties in Rosebery and we cannot thank Jimmy enough for his professionalism and assistance through out the whole process from the construction phase to the final handover. Both houses are providing good returns with very low vacancy periods.

We have no hesitation in recommending Tropical Lifestyle Homes to any customer looking for their drean home or investment property to be built.

We now consider Jimmy more as a close friend, rather than our builder.

Dear Jimmy and George,

My wife and I would like to express our appreciation to you both for making the building of our new home a hassle free and enjoyable experience.

When we decided to move to the rural area we had a fairly limited budget and needed a home to suit our needs. With both my wife and I were working at the time we could not put any time into the project ourselves so we needed a builder who could construct the "whole" house and on completion hand us the keys.

Tropical Lifestyle Homes were one of the few companies who were willing to discuss our requirements in detail and help us come up with a design that suited our situation.

Apart from price, an extremely important issue for us was construction time, Tropical Lifestyle Homes said they could build our new house in less than 4 months, which for us at the time (living in a 6m x 2.4m shipping container) was extremely important. Infact they completed the house in only 3 months which was fantastic, and was half the time that the other companies we had talked were offering.

Both the company directors are "hands on" builders and their knowledge and guidance during the building phase was excellent. They are very easy to talk to, always available, and responded quickly to emails or phone messages. Nothing was too hard for Jimmy and George and it was a truly stress free experience and an exciting time for my wife and I as we watched the construction of a home progress.

We have been in our home for almost 11 months now and apart from a few minor issues (which Tropical Lifestyle Homes attended to) we are more than happy with the results.

Once again I would like to thank Tropical Lifestyle Homes for building our new home without any fuss and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a quality home.

We were very fortunate to come across Jimmy and George of Tropical Lifestyle Homes while we were considering downsizing from rural to suburbia..The quality of workmanship and design of their display home made us decide to use their expertise to have a home built by them for us.

Adapting one of their plans to suit our needs was never a problem to them and they were always available to discuss any questions we may have had. Their schedule of finishes and standard specifications were very generous and allowed us to have quality fittings throughout the house. We might add that we did not want to have the stress of trying to pick out floor, bathroom and kitchen tiles so we left it in their hands after saying basically what tones we wanted even, they even matched the vertical blinds throughout the house for us. The end result is a home that everyone comments on favourably, and one that we are just so happy to have.

If you build with Tropical Lifestyle Homes all the stress and worry is taken out of the exercise. Our home was built with no fuss and bother with one trade following the other, everyone working in together to have the job completed without any delays. It made getting our home built a real pleasure. We have no hesitation in recommending Jimmy & George as quality and efficient builders to build your home for you.

To provide a Testimonial on Tropical Lifestyle Homes, where do I start?

The quality and workmanship in the Display Home? the choices and flexibility to meet my requirements? the high quality standard Finishes and Specifications? the quick build time? the friendly, hassle free interaction between builder and client? the finished product to our satisfaction? would I use this builder again / would I recommend Tropical Lifestyle Homes?
Well, here I go, from the moment I visited the 'Tropical Lifestyle Homes' display home, I was sold on the attention to detail, shown to the workmanship and the quality items fitted in the house as standard features!
Both Gail and Jimmy were responsive to requests for alterations/changes to meet my needs and provided quick replies with quotes and build time estimates. I decided on the "The Crotons" plan for my house in Farrar.

Builders / Directors, Jimmy and George started the ground work and slab lay on the 10th of September 2008 and work proceeded at a steady and surprising pace to practical completion on the 24th of January 2009, an amazing 14 Weeks!. Both were very helpful in explaining and clarifying this or that item, when the questions I asked seemed like mountains to me.

The finished product certainly came up to my expectations, (or better in some items) and to my satisfaction, ahead of schedule!

Would I recommend 'Tropical Lifestyle Homes' as a builder of choice? Yes, yes and yes again!

Yours sincerely

Tracey Bancroft

We would like to thank Tropical Lifestyle homes for all the assistance and knowledge they gave us during the construction of our home.

This was not our first property, but it was the first time we decided to build, and I would have to say that it was nothing like the stories that friends and family told us it was going to be.

We felt in control and were kept up to date will all aspects of the construction and we were given the opportunity to meet with the various contractors to discuss our vision with them which ensured the entire process was very smooth and exactly as we planned.

I would like to thank Jimmy and George on their attention to detail and the care they showed throughout this endeavour and commend them and their professional judgement to assemble the various contractors to complete our home.

Tropical Lifestyle Homes is the embodiment of affordability and flexibility as well as unearthly speed and quality. Jimmy was very patient with us and our lack of knowledge in building industry, was more than happy to guide us through the whole process, and made sure that we were happy with every detail. Our expectations were exceeded and we're thrilled with the end product.

When we decide to build again, it will definitely be with Tropical Lifestyle Homes. Recommended for everyone!

Thanks again for everything Jimmy.

From the first moment we walked through a ‘Tropical Lifestyle’ display home we knew they were the one to build our first home.

After speaking with Jimmy concerning a few changes to the floor plan of their display home ‘Heliconia’, we received a quote within three hours. I found that as verification that ‘Tropical Lifestyle Homes’ was efficient and reliable!

Tropical Lifestyle Homes were the fifth builder we visited and we were amazed with what they had to offer. We were determined on ensuring that we were getting ‘what we were paying for’ and definitely got more than we bargained for! All materials used by Tropical Lifestyle Homes were quality fixtures.

We found Tropical Lifestyle Homes before and after sale service to be outstanding, as any questions or information we required were answered without delay.

It was inspiring and a relief knowing that nothing was ever too difficult, complicated or an inconvenience. Tropical Lifestyle Homes embraced any challenge ahead, and I believe that is the quality that any home owner is looking for in a builder!!

It has now been two months since we have moved into our new Tropical Lifestyle Home and we still love it! We have had no hesitation in recommending Tropical Lifestyle Homes to all that we have spoken with and would be more than happy to do so in person, if required.

If we were to go back and change anything, we would choose Tropical Lifestyle Homes as the first builder to visit instead of the last, wasting precious time.

We thank Tropical Lifestyle Homes for helping us make the best decision we have ever made as first home owners in the Northern Territory!
