Directions to Fairways Self Catering Apartment

Directions travelling from Cape Town on the N2:

Approximately 10km from Mossel Bay there is an Engen Service Station on the right. One kilometre from there, where the N2 turns left for Port Elizabeth and George, continue straight onto the R102 to Mossel Bay. From here continue along the R102 for 8 km and at the fifth set of traffic lights a big green road sign indicates "Schoeman Street". Turn right into Schoeman Street and after 700 meters (0,7km) you will reach the entrance to the Mossel Bay Golf Estate on the left.

Directions travelling from Port Elizabeth and George on the N2:

Take the turn-off from the N2 onto the R102 indicating "Mossel Bay R102”. Follow the directions to Mossel Bay up to the first set of traffic lights. At the traffic lights turn right onto the R102 (the R102 later becomes Louis Fourie Road). From here travel for 6.5 km and at the sixth set of traffic lights along this road there is a big green road sign indicating "Schoeman Street". Turn left into Schoeman Street and after 700 meters (0,7km) you will reach the entrance to the Mossel Bay Golf Estate on the left.

When you are at the entrance gate indicating “VISITORS” (there are 2 gates, the one on the left is for Visitors) call us and we will open the gate (or the “boom” during daytime) from our cell phone. You pass through the gate, and once through you have to wait for the gate to close behind you and then the “boom” will open automatically (during daytime, the gate is open and only the “boom” is down, then my phone will open the “boom” for you to enter).

When entering the Estate, turn left, and CONTINUE GOING LEFT along Pardew Drive for 600 meters (0,6km) and you will reach Fairways at 161 Galatea Drive, on the left JUST BEYOND the golf cart bridge over the road. Just before the bridge there is a “Stop sign” and when you stop there you will see Fairways directly in front of you. When you pass under the golf cart bridge then Fairways is the first house on the left.
