Reviews“Went here for our honeymoon. Quaint accommodation, absolutely beautiful space to relax or go for a walk and discover the magnificent babbling creeks winding around the lush country side. Very lovely couple who run the haven are quite attentive to your needs. Well worth the drive and stay.”

“Wonderful hosts, comfortable and exotic accommodation in a pristine ecosystem. Highly recommended for recharging the body and soul.”

“Our stay at Havan’s was absolutely fantastic! Even the poor weather couldn’t dampen the experience. The creek could be heard from our room, bubbling away through the rain. Everything was beautifully romantic.”
