We developed Highlife Homes to specialise in the construction of high-end homes and residential developments. We are a luxury home and townhouse builder committed to building projects that our clients love, and that we are incredibly proud of. We do this by focusing on three key areas as follows:

  Honesty & Integrity

Put simply, we do what we say we’re going to do.

We follow through all tasks until the end, and let you know what is happening with your project as we go. Right from the start we work closely with you on your project, being honest about what we can achieve. If things change or if we meet any challenges along the way, we will work with you to resolve these as simply and seamlessly as possible.

We are all about foresight and collaboration. We keep you up to date with your project and inform you of any potential problem or potential cost. Knowledge is power and we believe that when our clients are fully informed about the building process they can make better decisions about their home to create the best possible result.

We love clients that are honest and upfront with us too. Clients that work collaboratively with us to build something great, they are our dream clients!

Building is a team process and it brings great joy to all of our team to work with clients that bring a positive success-oriented mindset to their project. If this sounds like you, we can’t wait to work with you!

    We focus on the finer details of your project

We go above and beyond to give you a high-quality home or development by focusing on the finer details, even on the things you can’t see such as:

✔   Pouring a thicker than standard concrete slab. Generally single detached pod slabs have 85mm cover over the pods. We pour 100mm because a strong home starts with a thick slab.

✔   Setting the slab lower in your bathrooms so that you don’t have to step up into your bathroom or shower once bedding and tiles are laid. We also do this in your garage so that leaves don’t blow straight in to your home, and water can’t run in when you’re washing your car. We pre-sheet (straighten) the outside of the home as well as the inside ensuring your frame is straight as possible before plastering or cladding. We also use Weathershield paint on the outside of the home. It lasts longer and protects the home better.

✔   We go above and beyond with the internal fixtures as well. For example we use tile clips on the floor to get your tiles as flat as possible. These are just some of the ways we focus on the finer details. At every step of your project our team complete detailed quality checks. We also review the work with you to show you what we’ve done and to make sure you’re delighted.

    We guide you through the whole process

Our specialised team are there for you every step of the way:

✔   We work closely with you on your design and selection process. We review your land and take great care with your plans so you get what you want and maximise your budget. We also bring in an interior designer to help you with your colour selections.

✔   Once your project has started you get online access to your project where you can see progress photos, selections, change orders and more. We conduct regular site meetings to show you exactly what has been done. We are also always available by phone or email for questions along the way.

✔   Then at the end of your project we complete a handover with you including reviewing everything you need to know about your home and details of your warranty. We aim to be one step above your normal luxury home and townhouse builder. Our exceptional service and outstanding quality are built with YOU in mind. We do everything in our power to ensure your project is something that you’ll love and be proud of. And that we will be too!

Hear it straight from our clients’ mouths…

“Entrusting a builder to build the house of your dreams can be a nerve wracking experience – not with Highlife Homes. From design to completion we felt our money was in safe hands – and it was. The whole process was professional, structured and caring along with really good communication skills from James through to Elyse and Emma back in the office, The customer care didn’t end with the final payment either – quite to the contrary.Their care and focus continued in dealing with those inevitable ‘snagging’ jobs which never seemed to pose a problem for them.This puts them ‘head and shoulders’ above the vast majority of builders on the Gold Coast.”
Tony Whiteley


“What a building experience! In the past 25 years I have built 2 family homes, 1 holiday home, 6 investment properties and 6 medium sized commercial properties and never had such a pleasant experience as working with James and his team from Highlife Homes. Highlife Homes went out of their way to make sure that we would have the best possible end product. It has been refreshing working with James, a person of integrity and a wealth of creativity and knowledge. We are already working on our next building project and I know Highlife Homes will be on the top of my list.”
Ted & Elmarie Bouw

Homeowners and Developers

“I can’t praise the team at Highlife Homes enough. From the service, to the design, to the build, everything was done above and beyond expectations. The builders in particular were the friendliest and hardest-working I’ve met – my site presented unique challenges, a really steep block, but it was all done incredibly fast and still maintained a high level of attention to detail. Highlife Homes really stands out among the abundance of builders available on the Gold Coast, and I strongly recommend them to anyone looking to build.”
Jamie & Nada Logan


“We have had twelve properties over time including three built new. We have no hesitation in stating that our new home by Highlife Homes is the best experience we have had when building a house. Highlife Homes are a very professional organisation, their customer service is first class and their workmanship is of the highest standard. They return phone calls and emails immediately, their staff and contractors are all friendly and easy to get along with. This was certainly a drama free build and completed in a short, scheduled time frame.”
