Our Retreat Range features stunning homes that were previously thought out of reach for those entering the property market.

I definitely recommend Hotondo for anyone looking to build, in the long run I could see that it was more worth my time building a home than buying one. It suits our current lifestyle perfectly and we look forward to building again someday!Fairley – Leeton, NSW
We love the quality of materials used and the little details that make our home different from others. Though we don’t have a big house, we feel like living in 5-star accommodation because of the quality inclusions. Hotondo Homes Toowoomba nailed the floor plan that we wanted, and we had a lot of compliments from friends about it. Steve really listens to what the clients want. Maybe a bit pricier than other builders, but it’s really worth it given the quality of the home.Kristian – Toowoomba, QLD
This is my first build and I am completing it on my own, I cannot recommend Donna enough for the help, guidance, professional work and extremely timely response to my 10,000 emails and phone calls. Best of all if she didn't know she would find out and give me all the information I needed to make a decision. My build is starting way before I thought it would and the team has worked very hard to get everything sorted on time.Jess – Jimboomba, QLD
This was our first new home build and what we thought was going to be a nerve-wracking experience turned into a pleasurable journey. From our first meeting with Jimmy to our day of colour selection with Julie everything, everything was seamless. The office staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and our site manager Dustin was a pleasure to work with as were the tradies. I would highly recommended Hotondo to anyoneBrett – Albury Wodonga, NSW/VIC
