Our Terms & Conditions

Check-in / Check-out

Check-in is from 2pm, but during the busy summer season check-in may be delayed till 3pm. Your apartment or studio may be available prior to this time, however we cannot guarantee access before 2pm. Check-out is 10am. Early check-in or late check-out may be available by arrangement subject to availability and an additional charge.

Quoted Rates

Rates quoted in your booking are based on the selected type of accommodation required, number of occupants and length of stay and any alterations to these details may affect the nightly rate charged.

Guaranteed Reservations

A valid credit card is required to guarantee all bookings. We accept credit cards including Visa and Mastercard. Your card will not be charged until check-in, but is held as security for your reservation and utilised for any applicable cancellation or non-arrival charges. This card may also be used for any charges remaining unpaid on check-out.

Payment at check-in

Payment is requested on check in. A valid credit card will be requested from the occupant of the apartment or studio when checking in. Payment via third party may be arranged in advance by contacting The Fairways directly. For guests without a credit card, photo ID will be requested and full cash payment of accommodation plus a bond for incidental charges may be required at check-in. Bonds vary by length of stay.

Cancellation Policy

Standard Rate: Cancellations may be made up until 48 hours prior to day of arrival for no charge. After this time apartments or studio’s cancelled will be charged the full rate.
Non-Refundable Rate: For non-refundable bookings no cancellation or changes are possible. The full amount will be charged as cancellation fee.

Events (Kaikoura Beach Hop, Races etc) have a special cancellation policy: Free of charge up to 4 weeks prior to date pf arrival, after this time we will charge the cost for the first night.

Group Booking (3 Apartments & more):

Cancellations for Groups and Corporate bookings will be advised at time of booking.

By agreeing to these terms and conditions you acknowledge that the named guest will be personally liable for all accommodation and incidental costs charged to the apartment or studio after check-in, for any loss or damage to the apartment or studio during their stay, for any cancellation or non-arrival fees, and for any debt collection costs incurred.

Early departure

Earlier departure than the reserved date may not result in a refund, unless The Fairways is able to replace the booking. In the event of a late cancellation every effort will be made to resell the apartment or studio and you will only be responsible for the cost if this is unsuccessful. To enable the best possible chance of reselling the apartment or studio early departures must check-out by 10am as the apartment or studio will need to be cleaned.
