We stayed at Maadathil Cottages for 3 nights in January and had a brilliant time. The cottages are located on Odayam beach which is a 20 minute walk from the north cliff with its busy shops and restaurants. So close enough to be able to go there if we wanted but a good enough distance away for complete peace and quiet if we didn't. The beach at the cottages is beautiful and we spent the morning just watching the fishermen bring their nets in with very few tourists on the beach.
The room itself was clean and spacious. There was no air conditioning which I thought might be a problem but with the fan the cottage stays cool as its construction means it doesn't overheat too much.
The breakfast was delicious and the staff very helpful. They brought us a very nice coconut drink when they managed to get some off the trees.
Only thing is the remote location is a bit tricky to get to at night if you don't have a flashlight. But with one it's no problem just walking along the beach.
Would definitely stay again.
