Point Leo Retreat

Dear Brian, Lisa & the Marklews Team

Thank you for producing a house that functions fantastically and has exceeded my expectations, particularly in the kitchen and living areas.  I love how well the home connects with the environment. With the lovely views from every room you feel really connected with the outdoors. It’s a pleasure to just sit down and enjoy the views.

I would like to share that the Marklews design process was professional and a surprisingly enjoyable experience. I was kept fully informed and engaged during every stage of the process, my input encouraged and I felt fully involved.

A complete building solution that met my living needs resulted from the close integration of the architectural, construction and interior design elements. I think it resulted in a wonderful and extremely liveable home.

From the start I was kept involved in all aspects of the building process. This occurred from the design stage, then throughout the construction and interior fit-out stages. It involved all forms of communication: email, phone and face-to-face meetings both at your offices and on-site. The regular on-site visits were particularly exciting, as I witnessed a concept being translated into a lovely home.

Great attention to detail went into the design specification and planning stages to ensure that my lifestyle needs were interpreted correctly. I particularly wanted lots of storage space and this has been delivered in spades, in an elegant and unobtrusive way. The home is very welcoming on approach up the driveway and the big red front door is particularly inviting.

The design and careful attention to detail promotes a sense of calmness and relaxation… exactly what was sought by the beachside. It’s hard to keep the visitors away.

Thank you again Marklews team. I still sometimes cannot believe that I live in such a lovely home.

Best, David
