Pristine views, vineyards and crystal clear alpine lakes make Queenstown and the surrounding Lakes district a drawcard for Kiwi’s and tourists alike and your team at Golden Homes knows every corner of the region. We’ve been building in this part of paradise for over 25 years and built not only amazing family homes but great relationships along the way.

About Us

Our mission is to build better homes for the people of the great Southern Lakes region. We recognise and understand that the stunning environment which surrounds us also has unique requirements when it comes to a new home.

That's why we've 'upped the ante' by improving on our Gold Standard specification by including, as standard, the likes of:

  • Thermally Broken Joinery to keep condensation and improving thermal efficiency,

  • PinkBatts H1 Complaint 2 layers of ceiling insulation,

  • PinkBatts R2.6 wall batts,

  • James Hardie HomeRAB thermal barrier for a more complete thermal envelope

We feel that these are 'must haves' for our particular climate.

We have found Nick and the team at Golden Homes excellent at all times through the sales process. All issues solved practically and in a cost effective manner.

Tony and Wina Robertson

Super stoked with everything Ethan has done for us throughout the design and sales process. He has always had plenty of time for us and came up with a great design that we love. He is super efficient and excellent at communicating. We contacted a few housing companies before deciding on Golden Homes. We couldn’t fault him at all and I would happily pick him to do it all over again.

Nick Peltzer

Ethan was always very clear on every detail and laid out the process so you always knew the next step and timeframes involved. He immediately knew the answer to all of my questions and responded to emails very quickly and clearly. I would highly recommend Ethan & Golden Homes.

Kate Thompson

What a great experience! From nothing, to plans, to options and then onto the build the Golden Homes team in Queenstown have been fantastic! Well recommended!

Ben Olive and Georgie Bignell

Ethan, Nick and Stacey are all fantastic to deal with. They make the process seamless and very enjoyable and are always available to answer questions and help with any process you are unsure about . Highly recommend to anyone wanting a professional and highly respected team to build their next home.

Paul and Tracee Harris

It has been a pleasure to work with Ethan in the planning of our new home.  He is very professional always being polite, helpful and conscientious. He is very knowledgeable and he always responded to our queries very quickly. We worked together for approximately six months. We had some issues on our part, nothing to do with Golden Homes, which needed to be resolved and Ethan did everything he could to help us solve them.  We would highly recommend him to anyone considering building with Golden Homes.

Joy & Paul Evans

Deciding to build a house as our first home, was a very big decision. After meeting with Ethan at Golden Homes, we were very confident we had made the right decision. Ethan literally went above and beyond for us. He answered every email very promptly. He accommodated all our requests with ease.  I definitely expected the process to be harder and more time consuming, but Ethan's professionalism and positive attitude made it an enjoyable experience.

Kylee and Ryan Clark

Having recently been through renovations and found that an incredibly stressful process we were concerned about how difficult a build would be.

Ethan has made the whole process easy. He has made suggestions when he can see we are unsure and taken a weight off our shoulders.

He is always positive and there with solutions to any problems. He knows the Golden Home product inside out and promotes that really well. We are looking forward to the result with confidence.

Allan and Penny Henderson

Living overseas, the rebuild process was always going to be more of a challenge. Working together, Ethan and I made great progress to make use of the time while in New Zealand. The rest Ethan has taken care of for us, and kept us up-to-date with what is happening throughout. Ethan's communication throughout the process has been excellent.

Kristina Sereda

Ethan made the whole process easy from explaining what and where to buy to his excellent communication throughout the build keeping us in the loop the whole way. We are very happy in our new warm and cosy home - Marley (our cat) is especially happy with her new cat flap. Cheers Ethan and the team at Golden Homes for our new home!

Dr. Andrew and Kate Verpoorten

We built with Ethan and the Golden Homes team in Shotover Country, and couldn't be happier with the result. Ethan worked with us on our ideas and within our budget, there were no surprises along the way. The build was quick, the finish great, and the follow up after we moved in to make sure we were all happy was really impressive.
