We started planning our visit to Chikmagalur in December. Normally during my birthday week in January we plan a road trip and me and my wife were looking for a location. After watching Kripal Amanna’s review of the Vintage, we decided to take a trip down there. My wife spoke to the owner Mr. Charles and booked our accommodation for three nights starting from Jan 27. We arrived in the late afternoon of Jan 27 after driving from Mumbai via Belgaum. My first expression after reaching there was best summarised by the word Serendipity. The villa look stands apt for the name “The Vintage”. We met the owner Mr. Charles and was impressed by his ability to make us feel comfortable. The room decor is excellent and bathroom was very clean. The common hall has very nice book collections. Mr. Charles Baptist is an excellent host. Everyday the food has been par excellence. My wife and he discussed at length about the food. We tested the special Malnad cuisine which we were looking for. Loved his Jackfruit, prawns ghee roast and sea food preparation. Being my birthday he took special arrangements for celebrating the occasion. This will remain forever in our memory. Thanks to Mr. Charles being such a great host and I am sure he will be seeing more of us.

Our recent stay at The Vintage was a delightful journey back in time. The colonial architecture seamlessly blended with the natural beauty of the surroundings. Set amidst a sprawling orchard, lush greenery, it was a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Our accommodation was a perfect blend of old-world charm and modern comfort. The villas boasts of grand facades, high ceilings and antique furnishings that gave us a distinct colonial vibe. But what truly set The Vintage apart was the exceptional home-cooked Mangalorean food which was enjoyed by the entire family - by the young and not so young alike. Mr Charles, the host, is an extremely charming person and throughout our stay made sure personally that we were comfortable and well cared for. Especially making sure that the food was perfect and exactly to our liking. Its like an home away from home in the true sense. We really loved our stay there. The location is also central, near to most of the attractions and very convenient.

Had a recent stay with my family at The Vintage,Chikmagalur. I must say, this is one of my best stay .Highly recommended. The staff is very warm and helpful with everything..I had been here on a weekday, less crowded and having access to breakfast/lunch/dinner buffet peacefully. We even got the best room of the property Eljay.. Food was amazing.. I would like to thank Mr. Charles(owner) for wonderful hospitality and Mr.Mani for the special care like providing coffee,food, etc., I would definitely visit again with my family. We really enjoyed the scenic property..My overall rating is 5/5.

I had the pleasure of staying at The Vintage Chikmagaluru recently, and it was an absolutely wonderful experience! The hosts (Charles and his team ) were extremely welcoming and made us feel right at home from the moment we arrived. Throughout my entire stay, I was treated with warmth and hospitality, which made it a truly memorable experience. In addition to being cozy, the rooms were thoughtfully decorated, creating a charming and individual setting. The delicious homemade breakfast, lunch, and dinner that was served every day was one of the highlights. It provided a taste of local flavors that I will cherish, and truly enhanced the experience as a whole. The hosts were likewise extremely accommodating in giving neighborhood suggestions, guaranteeing that I got to investigate the best of the area. Anyone looking for a personalized and enriching travel experience should strongly consider this homestay. I will return during my subsequent visit!

The home stay true to its name is actually a home away from home. Mr charles baptist and his team, went out of their way to please us . The accommodation, ambience and home style food was spot on. Mr charles actually pampered us with his food suggestions and even helped us in our itinerary planning. We are definitely returning back to the vintage to soak in some nostalgia and to make more memories. Thank you charles and the team at the vintage for making our short vacay a memorable one! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

Loved the place, food and service provided by Mr. Charles and his staff. The best part is that its pet friendly and our furry family member also loved her stay here ( everyone at Vintage welcomed her with love and smile). Rooms are big and have crisp and clean sheets, connected clean bathrooms. Location of homestay is just 10-15 mins from main town. Special mention to Mr. Charles for always asking our food preferences, checking up on us in case we required anything and suggesting places to visit. Also I would like to mention staff member Mr Shiv, very humble and polite person, he took care of not only us but also was kind to our driver. Shoutout to Brilliant chef and kitchen staff for delicious food - be it local cuisine or North Indian or Chinese ( my favorite was Babycorn Manchurian) Highly recommend The Vintage for Chikmagalur stay!!

This is a great place as the Owner lives in the place and looks after the place, unlike other resorts where employed people manage. It makes a lot of difference. The place is neat and very charming. The food is excellent as the Kitchen staff cook after checking your tastes. They conducted Bar-be-queues which are worth waiting for. A minimum of a three-day stay is recommended to soak in the ambience.

We stayed as a family of 6 at the central villa. The villa has four rooms, all with attached bathrooms. There is a dining hall as well, a large hall and a good sit-out area. The rooms are very well equipped and neat. The bathrooms had all amenities without being extravagant. The villa is filled with artifacts like quaint old clocks, nicely selected books of multiple languages. If you are the type that needs WiFi on a holiday then you won’t have much to complain at all. The WiFi is good. I would encourage you to step out and have a walk in the property. There are many trees of various types and the orchard is big. There are many vegetable and fruit growing plants/shrubs as well. And flowering plants. Take it all in because it is rare to see. Time does stop still at the Vintage. Speaking of the food, it was truly exceptional on all days. We were asked every time and it was ensured that everything cooked met with our tastes and desire. To pick a few that especially hit the mark- the mango sambar, the uddina vada, the pepper chicken and the anjal fry Last but not least, this homestay is truly a labour of love and it’s creator is Mr. Charles Baptist. I would recommend that you catch some time with him ( he is always around anyways) and know about how he created this place. A very amiable host, he absolutely ensures that you feel at home. One has travelled across continents and multiple countries and often heard claims about making us feel at home. It’s easier said than done. But Charles does it. Kudos to him and I am glad to recommend this delightful gem

We had one of the best family holidays at The Vintage Chikmagalur home stay recently. The best part of this stay could be attributed to the fantastic service, amazing food and a great host Mr. Charles. All the 4 days we stayed here was made memorable due to various factors like the upkeep and clean maintenance of the property, hospitality of the Staff, Chef who ensures that dietary restrictions are completely taken care of and kindness of the host. It turned out to be like long lasting visit to a close friends’ place. Thanks for making it a fun filled holiday for our kids and all of us. Also another advantage is the location, since it’s about 15 minutes drive from the main town and hence the place is quiet and serene with green views all around.
