Fairways is a modern apartment accommodation complex on the ridge out of Kaikoura about 5 minutes drive from town. We stayed here just after the complex opened and were very impressed then. This was our second stay and quite honestly the gloss had worn off. It appears that new Managers had just taken over and they were still finding their way.
Although every morning we shut the windows and blinds when we returned the blinds had been opened so that the apartment was like an oven and all of our belongings were on show ( not very security minded ).
I had a few gripes with the Managers however the worst was the cats ( kittens really ). We found that we couldn't even open a window without scoring a cat. I actually awoke to one in bed with me and was definitely not a happy camper. It took me a while to evict it and its friends at 2am. Over the 4 day stay I found they had ways of coming thru even the bathroom window.BTW it was high summer and there was no way we could survive without opening the windows and a doors at night.
Manager's response - laughed.
I don't thinl we will come back for a third visit.
