                                                                                                      Having just returned from a simply fantastic holiday in Kerala, it’s with pleasure that I give this review of the Pavana Villa with some background to its location and some advice that may be of help, should you be considering Kerala in the future. Pavana is situated in Eramalloor about 40 minutes Maximum by taxi from Kochi (Cochin) close to the MK Convention centre a great landmark for Taxis. It’s not a tourist area which we found a great advantage as you really get a true taste of India. The owner Silvester could not be more attentive he was in regular contact with us, our house boy (Beju) not sure of spelling and driver Varghese to ensure all was running smoothly during our stay and gave us assistance on Bank and ATM usage which was a great help. Bedrooms at Pavana are fully A/C which is essential, bedrooms and bathrooms were fine with no complaints in that area. There is also a local store next door for the essentials like Milk, Cold Drinks etc but for anything substantial you would need to visit one of the many supermarkets on the main road, some walking distance and some short Tuk Tuk ride. The upstairs rear veranda was essentially an area to hang washing and could do with a little attention to smarten it up but for our purposes was not a problem. The upstairs Front Veranda and down stairs area outside the entrance hall became our collection points for drinks after our evening meal – very pleasant and in the early mornings a great place to see a variety of bird life. We had overnight stays at Thissur visiting temples which was great and the tea plantations at Manur, much cooler in the hills plus Elephant rides which were most enjoyable. We would also recommend 2 nights on a houseboat out of Alappuzha – most still call it Alleppey one of the highlights of our trip but beware of any extras on board like Lobster, Crab etc which cost you extra. Our one comment to Silvester was that he needed to review the utensils available in the kitchin, a small thing but annoying when you can put your hand on the right thing whilst preparing a meal – Silvester said that this would be attended to and I am sure he will do this asap. There are many restaurants within easy reach of the Villa, most have an air conditioned section and we used one 3 or 4 times for Take Aways (delivered to your door) but would highly recommend the Ginger House Restaurant in Jew Street Cochin – The Tiger Prawns are superb! Hope you enjoy your stay at Pavana and thanks Silvester

Set in a stunning area in a rural part of Kovalam only a 10 minute tuktuk ride from the beach, this really is a beautiful property. It's spacious, clean and well equipped, it's views and surroundings are lush. We loved the roof top terrace, where we overlooked the village, watching the wonderful array of birds and wildlife, as well as enjoying observing the locals going ahead with everyday life. It was a joy to meet the local children, who entrerained us with their antics. It would be hard to experience this if you are just in a hotel in a resort. Taxis, tuktuks, cars and drivers can be all arranged by Annita, who lives close by and who kindly cares for the villa. Annita and her lovely family were truly a blessing, nothing was too much for them, she maintains the villa and its gardens beautifully and we are truly grateful for all their hard work during our stay. We would be more than happy to recommend this villa to anyone, especially those who enjoy bird watching as the lake is a short walk away and birds are plentiful. It makes a wonderful base, and we were able to explore more of Kerala from here. Thank you Willie and family, for allowing us to share such an incredible experience. We loved every minute.
