Coastal Retreats

 
 

Rod has had an operations base in the Coromandel Peninsula – Pauanui for over 30 years. Completing projects large and small Rod is experienced at working with coastal conditions. 

These are a small selection of projects Rod and his team have completed in Pauanui and Whangamata. Each project has been designed for minimal care to suit the 'beach house' lifestyle.
