  • Dear Casa Mare Friends Thank you for building us a beautiful beach house!— Jill & Tom

  • This is the best holiday season ever with our new beautiful beach house ~Thanks to You! I wish you many more houses to build in the New Year.— Rebecca & Terry

  • Thank you Casa Mare Custom Homes for getting us back on the Beach. All we can say is WOW! When we made our decision to rebuild on the Peninsula, and to choose our builder, we hoped we had made the right decision. Having never built a home before, we didn't really know what to expect, and friends told us that even if we really liked our builders there would be times when we really didn't. Nothing could be further from the truth. Trust was established early on and we were never disappointed. We look forward to years of friendship with you all.— Steve

  • All of you at Casa Mare, and every sub contractor chosen by you, have delivered on every level. Amazingly, it was a stress free adventure and most importantly, always so much fun. The proof is in the evident quality of our home and so important to us, it is comfortable and so beautiful. Last but far from least, we feel that this project was not just a business proposition, but that we made friends that we will continue to enjoy. Thank you for making our project so much fun and so rewarding!— Diane

  • We LOVE our house. We had guests down this past week and they were very complimentary about the layout and how well the house was built...very "tight". The weather turned cool outside and we never turned the heat on. We never had to, it stayed warm and cozy. Thank you!— David and Sheryl

  • We lost our home during Hurricane Ike so we contacted Casa Mare. They went right to work rebuilding our home. Before we knew it, we were moving in. Beautiful interior design and a very comfortable home. We love it!— Nelva

  • Casa Mare is the best home builder on the beach.— Curtis
