Since 1989, virtually all of our clients have come to us as referrals from previous clients because of our incredible pride in what we do and our unsurpassed customer service.
Here is a selection of client reviews.
Beyond being an experienced and quality builder, we were most impressed with how consistently responsive Wine Country Custom Homes was throughout the entire design & build process – an often overlooked quality that is absolutely critical when you’re relying on someone to convert your “dream” home into reality. Pat Hayko guided us through the design process, working with the very talented Mullins Design in Kelowna. Pat & Graham went above and beyond to ensure we understood the implications of all decisions that needed to be made throughout the process. There were no budget surprises. Graham is an excellent project manager and made sure things were done right and to Wine Country Custom Home’s high quality standards. Pat Hayko is extremely ethical, which was echoed by the trades Wine Country Custom Homes uses. Our home exceeded all expectations, thanks to Wine Country Custom Homes.

We were very fortunate to meet a family who earlier had Pat build their house. We were shown the many qualities of their home and appraised of many qualities of Pat. They highly recommended he be contacted.
Here is our most positive experience:
After our first visit with Pat, it was obvious there would be no need to interview anyone else, and we promptly ‘signed on’ for a total package of design, sub trade selection, cost control, construction management, etc. We could have gone away, returned on completion, and be totally content. We did, however, stay around and marvel at the competency of his preferred suppliers and sub-trades, all working together as a team to provide quality work and a timely cost-effective schedule. We did provide input if and when required and found this to be an enjoyable friendly experience of getting what we all wanted. There is no doubt this was all possible due to Pat and his ‘team’ who were cost conscious, quality oriented, and most knowledgeable in their fields. Pat has an incredible way of sensing your needs and has a fantastic rapport with the people he can call upon for any issue. Quite importantly, and not to be overlooked, has been Pat’s ‘follow-up’ after moving in. It made the whole experience complete. Pat is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, conscientious, has high integrity and one who is willing to listen.
We have no hesitancy whatsoever in recommending Pat Hayko to build your house and create a home, and we are willing to show anyone his work.
Bob & Lori Johnson
We are so happy with our home in Kelowna built by Wine Country Homes. From the time we first met until we took possession the team took very good care of us. We described the approximate size of home we wanted with several must-haves and Pat Hayko and his team came up with a design that was fantastic. Ginnette Sigouin guided our selection of colors, flooring, granite and other design features and Manager Graham Koyich consistently delivered on quality, timing, and budget. We would highly recommend them if you are considering building a new home in Kelowna, BC.
Murray and Susan Olson
It has been nearly four years since we moved into our new home that was built by Wine Country Custom Homes. It had been our intention to submit an opinion about our building experience some time ago but since we have been living in our home for the past four years, we can speak without any uncertainty about the quality of our new home.
When we decided to build in the Quarry we instantly liked the area and had several builders to choose from to design and build our new custom home. We interviewed three builders, and immediately noticed a difference in Pat Hayko’s low key no pressure approach that allowed us a very casual exchange of ideas.
The home we built was much larger than any we had previously owned and there were a vast number of options that we could incorporate into our new home. Pat was always very patient and helpful throughout this process, which removed the stressful part of the building process. All we had to do is make decisions and present them to Pat who then put them into an organized scheduling process which left very little to chance.
We had several on-site meetings with Pat and some of the trades involved to make sure we were getting exactly what we thought we were getting. By signing off on these details there were no unpleasant surprises in the end. Our home was completed on schedule and on budget, except for the upgrades we added during the construction process.
During the past four years, there have been so few service issues that it’s hardly worth mentioning. The few that came up were handled in a professional manner without hesitation which just proves that a job is done right the first time does not have to be done a second time.
We are extremely happy with our new home and know we made the right decision hiring Wine Country Custom Homes to build our dream home. We would highly recommend Wine Country Custom Homes for anyone wanting to build a high quality, cost competitive custom home with a minimum amount of stress.
B. & G. Banerd, Kelowna
In the late ’80s, my wife and I decided to build a dream home in Winnipeg. We had the extreme fortune of being referred to Pat Hayko by a good friend, and subsequently enjoyed the home that Pat built for many years. Upon retiring in 2006, we asked Pat to construct another home, this time in the Okanagan. Once again Pat built a beautiful home for us, and we located in Lake Country. Pat has demonstrated his expertise and vision, as well as his straight forward honesty and integrity, time and time again. Yes, should we move yet again to start another chapter of this life, I hope Pat will be able to squeeze us into his busy schedule. Recently a young friend approached us for a builder’s name that he could trust. We immediately referred him to Wine Country Custom Homes. Pat, along with his home building team, are now in the process of making their dream a reality.
Kerry & Eleeta Armit
We have had the pleasure of working with Pat on two of our custom built homes in Kelowna and are currently planning a third with Wine Country Custom Homes.
Pat communicates extremely well and demonstrates excellent organizational skills as it relates to budget, timely building, and quality control. The most important value to us in the building was Pat’s integrity and fairness in the building process.
We would not hesitate in recommending Mr. Hayko to build your home and feel you would be very satisfied with all the elements of your home building. Should you like to view some of Mr. Hayko’s work, we would be pleased to provide our home for your perusal.
Jeannette and Bob Tunstead
Pat Hayko and all the associated trades of Wine Country Homes provided an outstanding building experience. They built the home of our dreams at a very busy time essentially on time and on budget. We would not hesitate to recommend Wine Country to any of our friends.
