About Us


The Coastal Homes team are Master Builders based in picturesque Doubtless Bay in the far north of New Zealand

Doubtless Bay has its own locally-owned and operated expert construction company. The blue and white signs which are seen all over the area proudly display this most appropriate name for our beach-dominated area – Coastal Homes.

Glen Bradbury is the founder of Coastal Homes, having owned and operated his own construction business since 1999 – he and his team have built a numerous amount of homes throughout Doubtless Bay.

Glen is a practical builder who is interested in all aspects of the business, constantly expanding his range of work and now employs qualified carpenters, with apprentices on the team as well working towards the National Certificate in Carpentry, with other appropriate tradesmen are employed as necessary.

Coastal Homes has had two apprentices win the Northland Apprentice of the Year – with another in the running for 2014. We also have had five of our apprentices win the State Apprenticeship Scheme.

Coastal Homes takes on all types of building projects, including new residential and commercial builds, major renovations and remodelling, retaining walls, landscaping and decks. We also have expert site works available – including section development, earthworks, hole drilling, back hoeing, labour only, etc.

About Doubtless Bay

Situated on the Pacific Ocean, Doubtless Bay has a warm sub-tropical climate, relatively low rainfall and over 70 kilometres of unspoiled coastline and an abundance of safe beaches. Centred on the township of Mangonui, it is a holiday paradise and a wonderful place to live and work.

There are daily flights (closest airports being Kaitaia and Kerikeri) and bus services from Auckland and travelling by car on State Highways 1 and 10, it is about four hours drive north from Auckland without stops – or a very scenic journey for those who enjoy taking their time.

For more information about the area please check Doubtless Bay’s official website.
