The big plus point of the cottages is its location and of course its staff. The kliffs are in walking distance. After a visit to the more touristic part of Varkala we were even more convinced that we made the right choise in choosing Maadathil Cottages. The bungalow had a large bedroom and the bathroom is very spacious. The veranda...

Location absolutely beautiful, the villas are right on an almost secluded beach (Odayam beach) just 10mins away from busy Varkala North cliff. Staff were very friendly and helpful and good wifi connection (of you need it!). There are a couple of restaurants walking distance as well as their own on site restaurant.
