What our customers say about their Cassa Home.
Andre and his team were amazing! We had complete faith in the whole process, which was vital as we were building in Whitianga whilst living in Auckland. They built the house of our dreams, and if ever there was a problem, Andre always had a solution.

Attentive, Friendly and Proactive
Our two-storied, 60 year-old hillside bach at Hahei was overdue for a major deck rebuild and renovation of the house ocean side aspect. As a prominent older bach we were keen to develop a strong contemporary style, but retain and enhance our holiday living. Andre at Cassa was keen from the start and introduced us to their architecture partner DF Design and together with surveyor, engineering and planning contacts successfully tackled the 30 degree slope and some challenging site and consent issues. Covid lockdown also delayed consents, however even with a delayed construction start Cassa completed the job on a revised schedule by mid December 2020 for our family Xmas, followed by final Council sign off in early 2021. We agreed early on to a ‘Labour Only’ basis to manage the contingencies of an old house repair with a lot of changes in scope, design and materials.
Through all this Andre was always available by phone or email and for onsite meetings, attentive, friendly and proactive with useful design and materials choices and for budgeting scope and design changes. We benefited from his contacts and smooth management of sub trades, including new suppliers. It was a good, but challenging contract, we’ve had some great local feedback on the job and we enjoyed working with Andre and the team.

Our Stunning Waterways Home
Our dream was to build a home which complemented our outdoor / indoor style with entertaining and open plan as important features. We had decided on a floor and design plan that involved my wife and I having a significant role in the interior fit out and components of the exterior. From the outset, Cassa Homes made positive and sensible recommendations and offered sound advice and cost effective options to our ideas.
Andre was always receptive to our involvement and was a solution provider when required. He was easy to work with and had a quiet manner and ability to listen to any concerns that arose. He is methodical and has an excellent rapport with his team of subcontractors. He also relates well to exterior
contractors that were not part of his every day team of tradesman.
Our home was completed within agreed timeframes and the quality of finishing work has been outstanding. Andre was always responsive to meeting requests, questions and any issues that arose and continues to keep in touch with us as minor issues or questions arise.
We are delighted with the final product and look forward to a long and enjoyable lifestyle in our stunning waterways home.

Professionalism, Dedication and Reliability
I couldn’t recommend Andre Mayo at Cassa Construction highly enough. Andre and his team completed a very high standard of work. Their professionalism, dedication and reliability is outstanding, and they made the whole project a stress free experience. I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again.

An Eye For Detail
We had started planning our Whitianga retirement home years ago and came across a Cassa Homes house, the Blackjack. We immediately loved the look and style of this house. We contacted Andre and told him we would be a few years away from building and would keep in touch. We designed our home, emphasizing an open plan, maximum use of the sun and a good street appeal. From our first meeting, Andre looked at our concept which had a few challenges in the shape, roof line and span. In his quiet, confident tone, he said “Yep, no problem”. Whereas other builders raised a few concerns, Andre only made positive suggestions and offered advice.
Andre was always easy to work with, receptive to our requests, tolerant to small changes and communicated well. His team of builders and subcontractors were always professional and pleasant to deal with. His reputation of having an eye for detail was evident. The workmanship was outstanding and the quality of our house is excellent.
Needless to say we love our new home and look forward to many happy years.
Trevor and Trudy Brown, Whitianga
We had a difficult project involving the major restoration of our family beach house. We realised we needed a special relationship with a builder based on trust and flexibility. We had a tight budget and efficiency was critical. Andre and his team was recommended to me and he brought along an excellent selection of subtrades. I must say we are very pleased with the outcome.
Chris Sumich, Opito Bay
My experience with Andre and his team has been positive from the start of the build to its conclusion. They built me a beautiful and solid family home that I am very pleased with. Overall, I would say the biggest positive has been Andre's integrity. He stands behind his work and is a true professional.

Great New-Build Experience
Andre and the team at Cassa Homes have recently completed our newbuild at Park Lane, Whitianga. We chose Cassa Homes after viewing some of their completed builds, and were impressed with the build quality and unique design concepts. Right from the outset of planning the design, Andre offered practical solutions, and managed the process seamlessly throughout. Andre was receptive to our ideas and worked with us on any questions as they arose during the build.
The whole process was stress free and Andre and the team were great to work with. The quality of workmanship and attention to detail are of a high standard. The end result was a modern, open plan beach house to cater for our extended family and friends, which suits our lifestyle perfectly. Thanks Andre and the team at Cassa Homes for a great new-build experience and our awesome place.
Paula and Darren Woodard, Whitianga
We had the pleasure of having “Cassa Homes” build our “dream home” in 2015/16. The whole experience from start to finish was fantastic! Andre Mayo was an exceptional builder to work with. He was honest, reliable and well organised, and his calm nature made any issues easy to resolve.
For our home, his workmanship and attention to detail was excellent, as was his expectations for the performance of all the sub-contractors.
We are thrilled with the final result and thank Andre and his team for a job well done!

Trust in Cassa Homes
Cassa Homes were very helpful from day one. When building a home you need to put your trust in someone and we did with Andre and his team. Workmanship is of a very high standard and the advice he gave us through the build gave us a great result. Would recommend Cassa to anyone looking to build their dream home.
Daryl and Kate Feast, Whitianga
We recently had our new home built by Andre and his team at Cassa. We were delighted with the high standard of workmanship. Andre was very easy to work with which made our lives easy. The build was completed in the timeframe given. We love our new build. We would highly recommend Cassa Homes and would certainly use them again if we do another build.
