The Blood-Dimmed Tide
A haven is the residence and intimate domain of a vampire, where he or she slumbers during the day and may labor during the waking night. By necessity, havens generally are secret locations or at least highly secure (ideally, both), or else the vampire runs the risk of exposure or destruction at the hands of vampire hunters or rivals — or, worse still, the resident might become the victim of diablerie. Many vampires keep their ghouls or other retainers close by, to watch over their slumber, especially if other Kindred know the site to be a vampire's haven.
