The Haven has a range of comfortable accommodations. We offer an inclusive environment and welcome people of diverse backgrounds and perspectives. The comfort and safety of all guests is important to us.

Dorms are designed to be shared by up to six people, and have shared bathrooms with private shower and toilet stalls. Basic and ForestView rooms are designed to be shared by two or three people, with beds in the same room and a shared bathroom.

A Basic or ForestView room may also be booked as a private room. Most OceanView rooms are designed to be private accommodations but a few are suitable to share with a roommate.


Thunderbird dormitory is our most economical option. Each dorm pod accommodates up to 6 people, and each pod has its own shared bathroom. Bunks are single over single, with extra-long mattresses. The Thunderbird dormitory is only available for participants registered in a program at The Haven. From July to mid-August, the dormitory is reserved for our Youth Programs. Read more about the Thunderbird dorms (PDF).

Basic rooms are simply furnished, comfortable and economical. They have two singles or one double bed, and a private bathroom. They do not have a TV.


Forest view rooms are nestled in attractive forested areas of The Haven property. Larger than our basic rooms, they have two or more beds, a TV and private bathroom.


Ocean view rooms and suites offer spacious, well-equipped and comfortable accommodation looking out over the beach and waters of Taylor Bay. There is a TV in each room, a full kitchen or kitchenette, and private bathroom. Most Ocean view rooms have a deck.

Many people find that having a roommate enhances The Haven experience. For some, it's the start of a long friendship.

If you choose shared accommodations and wish to stay with a particular person, please provide that person's name when you complete an on-line registration request or contact a registrar at or 1 800 222 9211 x1. Please ask your preferred roommate to do the same. Shared OceanView accommodations are available on a requested roommate basis only.

If you choose shared accommodations and would like us to find a roommate for you, we assign rooms as men only, women only, or gender neutral. If you would like assistance in choosing shared accommodations that meet your needs contact us at or 1 800 222 9211 x1.

We make every effort to meet the needs of all our guests, but cannot guarantee specific rooms.
