We would like to thank you and the team at Ocean Blue Builders for building our beautiful home.
The entire experience from getting your quotation to walking into our finished home couldn’t have been better. You guided us with integrity and maintained the highest levels of quality throughout the whole process. The finished product is simply excellent and I would be more than happy to recommend Ocean Blue to your prospective clients.

We engaged Ocean Blue Builders in 2012 to do a major renovation on our double fronted Victorian house in Prahran – about as big a reno as it gets for this kind of house – a rebuild of everything but the front three rooms, and adding an upstairs and a pool – it was about a 12 month project and we moved out for the duration. Friends of ours who had built two houses in Brighton with Ocean Blue were emphatic that we absolutely HAD to use them , and we are so glad we did.
Everyone (except our friends who were recommending Ocean Blue) we talked to who had been through a renovation spoke of it being extremely stressful, with arguments with their builder and architects, variation upon variation blowing out the costs, and months of post build wrangling to get it finished off after they moved back in.
Our experience was totally different – the project was finished two weeks ahead of schedule, we didn’t have one single argument with Ocean Blue, no variations at all (that we didn’t ask for) and we actually ended up feeling a bit sad to see them go once it was all finished as we loved dealing with them.
The quality of the job they did is beautiful – we had a very experienced architect and a very experienced interiors architect working with us, who had not previously dealt with Ocean Blue, and were initially a bit miffed we didn’t go with one of “their builders” that they regularly worked with - in the end they were so impressed with Ocean Blue they both have gone on to do numerous projects with them after ours.
Every build has its unforseen challenges that come up, but Aaron and his team are so pragmatic, and solution orientated that nothing is a problem for long – they have the attitude that “everything can be worked out” which it always was. They are also all really great people to deal with - good natured, decent, funny and generous – which is a big bonus given how much time you need to spend with them over the course of a big project.
In short – we cannot recommend them highly enough. In fact, we have gone on to recommend them strongly to four of our friends, two of whom have now completed renovations with them, and two who currently have renovations being done by them. The feed back about them from these friends has been terrific too - “I don’t know how we can ever thank you enough for pushing us to choose Ocean Blue – they were just phenomenal” and “that Aaron is GOLD – he and his team have totally SAVED my reno”
Anyone who is considering them is more than welcome to give us a call to talk about them, or to come and see our house for themselves – we really don’t think we could have had a better renovation experience, or be any happier with our end result and our builder – and that is certainly something you really don’t hear very often.

We used Ocean Blue builder’s for our first development in Sandringham for 3 double storey homes and it was the best decision we have ever made. I can honestly say I will never go with another building company again as we were so happy with them. From the embryonic stages of the development they were extremely professional and transparent in everything they did. The quality of the finishing’s is second to none and they helped us along the way to guide us in the right direction. They never fell behind the timelines and our properties were handed over exactly when promised. In this profession it’s hard to find people you can trust but I can assure you Ocean Blue builders is one of the rare ones you can. Donna & James, Dubai
Dear Aaron and all Staff,
We wanted to put pen to paper and express our sincere thanks for helping us achieve our dream renovation.
This renovation was fifteen years in the making. We were very nervous to renovate our existing house as we did not know who to turn to for help. On advice from our friends, who had built with you, we took the first step in making the call to you.
From the first phone call to get a quote to the day you handed us back our keys we have to say you were all simply the best.
Ocean Blue have fabulous staff who take pride in their work. Lead from the front with Aaron and our foreman Adrian, we had weekly catchups on site, if not daily phone calls, to keep in touch and assure us all was going well. All of those employed by Ocean Blue were happy, welcoming and respectful of our renovation. It was a great pleasure to visit to our house and know the boys were working hard with a sense of humour and some music going.
We have been in our house twelve months now and love it so much. We had Ocean Blue follow up and call us to check all was well.
We are so proud of our new home and have welcomed family and friends who have all loved our wonderful new space and warmly home.
We can not thank Aaron, Adrian and staff enough for the high professionalism they have showed.
Word of mouth is a powerful tool.
Thanks and Regards
David & Angela Banik.
