About
Description
Modern 1 and 2 bedroom apartments, well appointed, fully self contained with great views across the rolling farm land, native bush and the Kaikoura Ranges. Situated in the amazing Ocean Ridge More development the Fairways also offers smaller, self contained Studio units, great for an over nighter when passing through. A tranquil location, close to the airport, 3 km from town centre and adjoining the Kaikoura Golf Course. Friendly service from your hosts Ross and Jen to compliment a memorable stay. Less
