This place was the winner between any place I have ever stayed at. It is hard to describe how wonderful Haven was. It was a great place away from the city, right on the beach.. The owners were a fantastic couple that made every thing so perfect. The food is the best quality food you will have, we miss it so much. I can't find good words to describe my experience there, we went for 2 days initially and ended up staying for 5 and honestly I would have stayed a life time.

Haven was the absolute perfect break for us whilst travelling in Vietnam. I couldn't complain about a single thing. The food, the view, the hospitality, the company all were all incredible. I'm not sure I ever felt so welcomed in a guesthouse anywhere I have travelled to.
Hopefully I will get a chance to come back in the future. Keep up the good work guys!

No words would do this guesthouse justice. From the beautiful food to the friendly owners to the peaceful beach.. Not one fault . A must. Was worth taking a trip off the beten track for this. You also experience a tiny Vietnamese village and its culture

Myself, my boyfriend, his Mum and her partner had an amazing 3 days staying at Haven with Huw and Rosie. It is the perfect place to just kick back and relax... away from the tourist trail, on a quiet beautiful beach in the middle of an authentic Vietnamese village- you cant get any better!

We were eating Vietnamese street food in the village everyday, having communal home-made dinners every evening with Huw & Rosie and the guests, cuddles with Haven the dog, beautiful cool rooms, comfiest beds I think we've EVER slept in and hammocks to relax in all day.

The place is decorated to perfection, the food is to die for and it is run by the most welcoming hosts you could possibly ask for.

Thank you so much for having us guys and good luck in the future - you do the place proud!

How could you not but give it top reviews!? Besides being super clean, having comfortable beds at a reasonable price and located beside an almost private and cosy beach, there are two reasons why this place rocks and beats a hotel hands down;
(1) owners Rosie and huw are amazing people. Friendly and helpful. They go out of their way and more to ensure your comfort.
(2) authentic Vietnamese culture- this place is free from rampant tourism, in fact it is bang smack in the middle of a small Vietnamese fishing village. The real deal!

Tip- the food here is top notch, tasty, wholesome and plentiful. certainly stay in for one night to eat here.

Prediction- I would certainly come back, I'm guessing they may have to extend in the near future!

Thanks guys!

Haven is a perfect blend of east meets west. A small beautiful almost Mediterranean style guest house overlooking a blue azure sea with high, (but not impersonal) service standards, yet in a small traditional Vietnamese fishing village, as yet unscathed by tourism.

Our train was delayed an hour when we arrived in Qui Nhon, the hotel had arranged a taxi and the smiling driver was waiting for us. It took around 30 minutes for us to reach the fishing village; the streets are narrow and we had to negotiate the last part of the journey on foot (only five minutes), the driver helped us with our luggage.

Huw, Rosie and their staff were there to greet us and after showing us to our lovely comfortable room we had a cold beer (complementary) and took in the breathtaking beauty of our surroundings.

We were the only guests for a couple of days and we were made to feel very much at home. On the second day, the young Vietnamese lady who helps to cook the delicious meals invited us to the opening of her small shop/café (the only one in the village). She had prepared a sumptuous feast and we were honoured to be part of the family celebrations. Guests at Haven are very much encouraged to interact with the villagers who were very welcoming and patiently (and probably amusedly) put up with our attempts at learning Vietnamese.

We loved our bedroom with the large comfortable bed with crisp white linen sheets and fluffy towels. It was bright and tastefully furnished with a good air con system plenty of wardrobe space and a super flat screen internet TV which had not only all of the live cable channels but also a large catalogue of films.

We really loved mealtimes at Haven which we shared with Huw, Rosie and their staff. Lots of great conversation and laughter. Most of the food. is sourced locally from the village and daily meals are decided based upon what produce is available. There is no MSG or additives incorporated in the cooking. Meals are buffet style so you can eat as much or as little as you wish. There is an honesty bar and you are encouraged to help yourself and record daily what you have had.

We were very sad to leave at the end of our 3 day stay and felt that we had made some very good friends.

A brilliant, tucked away gem of a place. We stayed 5 nights in March 2013, with perfect weather, great guests to share laughs, a drink or two and the best home cooked meals ever. Thank you Mi :) Rosie and Huw. A perfect place for couples to relax and unwind, enjoy village life, swim in a gorgeous cove and soak up all that rural and friendly Vietnam has to offer. The rooms are generous and perfectly attired with separate bathrooms, big beds, crisp, fresh linen, cooled by the sea breezes or aircon if you need it. The communal bar and lounge area is a perfect place to enjoy a few drinks and the charm of the fishing fleet and ocean views. Don't miss Haven on your Vietnam holiday.

Room Tip: Make sure you have lunch in the village. Fresh, wonderful food.
