The Vintage is a nice property very close to chickmangaluru town.. The Bungalow is neatly done and pets are allowed in one of the property.. You can stroll the place without any hindrance and watch peacock 🦚 which is a regular visitor.. There is no restrictions to pet movement which is an amazing thing .. Service is good and food is typical malnad and mangaluru style .. Most of the vegetables are from the garden so it’s limited but we could eat without a doubt of any chemicals.. Mr.Charles who owns the property is always available over a call and is very helpful.. Individuals or couples or family want to have a quiet vacation doing nothing then this is the place.. The only feedback from my end would be pet food, need to scale in quantity and quality.. I would still rate the property 5 star 👍👍 During our visit we met Mr. Charles”s son of 12 year old who was a great host and informative.. He plays many instruments and did show us his drum skills which was great.. I don’t want to name him as he is a child and his privacy is important.. If you meet him at the property then it would be a treat.. The approach road to the property is good .. Mr. Charles gave us a pack of pepper grown in his field which was a kind gesture.. 👍👍 enjoy and will recommend this property for sure ..

We stayed at the Vintage for a long weekend. Right from our booking experience that host, Charles has been exceptionally good to treat us. After reaching the Vintage we were quite excited to have made a great choice. The place is serene and the rooms are huge. We loved the host's attitude to not cramp the place with more people and prefer personal attention at the cost of business. We were treated with great variety of local food for every meal. Every meal quantity was very well served and we ended up eating a lot more that we should have. The host went extra mile and suggested us the best place to hike avoiding the long weekend crowd. I look forward to my next visit to stay with Charles and his exceptionally courteous team. Very highly recommended

My husband and I had a very pleasant stay at the Vintage. The property is full of trees and greenery which made for very cool and pleasant surroundings.The rooms are well kept and clean. Charles is a very good host and took care of all our needs. He arranged our day trips and served us piping hot food when we came back. The food was made to our liking and Charles was always present to make sure we were served well. Off course, the food was absolutely delish. It was a very pleasant and relaxed stay at the Vintage. Would definitely repeat it again.

Somdev Rao Madala 5/5 just now on Google Charles the great, we heard in history lessons. But our dear friend, Charles is.... the GREAT of Chikmagalur. He simply and magically made our stay at his property ' A GREAT EXPERIENCE ' Service5.0Location5.0Rooms5.0 Adding specially for the tripadvisor, we rarely find such personally friendly and specialised attention in any such holiday homes. We were a group of ten people, six senior citizens, including two small kids. All of us were cared for as per our personalized requirements. It was indeed an unique sojourn and a perfect holiday. The food was as homely and enjoyable as the other matters that make a perfect Holiday. We definitely recommend Vintage of Charles at Chikmagalur for those who want to enjoy a perfect holiday. God bless and hope your holidays at Chikmagalur would be as enjoyable as was ours.

A great location and Mr Charles makes sure that the stay is comfortable. Warmth and hospitality, missing in many of the hotels and resorts, is the key USP of The Vintage. Wish them very best and request to maintain the standards.

Our Vacation at The Vintage Chikmagaluru was planned at the last minute. Before booking, we went through all the previous reviews and found all of them strongly recommend this property. So, without any hesitation we booked our 3 days stay at the property full of expectations. The host Mr. Charles was very helpful all along right from the word go, providing us with directions on how to reach the property, etc. & also asking us if we need any help to reach the place. Our arrival at the property was scheduled at around 2 PM, and as soon as we arrived & freshened up a sumptuous lunch was provided & soon after that he gave us suggestions where to visit for the time we had on hand that evening. Spent some time that evening & the next day looking closely at the property, rooms, gardens, orchard, etc, and also interacted with the host Mr. Charles. And that immediately gave us an idea why this place is highly recommended by one and all. Everything at this property far exceeded my expectations which I had from the reviews. The bedrooms, washrooms, common areas & dining areas were all spotlessly clean equipped with everything one would want for a comfortable stay there. A lot of efforts are being put in by Mr. Charles & his team to provide a comfortable stay to their guests. No review is complete without special mention & appreciation about all the three meals provided to us every day with so many varieties which we were so looking forward for and were so tastefully prepared by Mani & his team. He was always asking us if we wanted him to cook any special meals/dishes, but we were more than happy to have the Malnad & Mangalorean style cuisine which was on the menu. The lunch was always ready & they were waiting for us, even if we were a bit late after our local visits around Chikmagalur. What initially was a 3-day stay, ended up extending for another day. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Vintage & a longing to come back again very soon. We arrived at The Vintage as guests and left with a feeling of being the Family Members of The Vintage.

The Vintage is the best for families to enjoy. Great, big and nice property. Very humble and nice owner Charles (host) and very polite staff. Yummy food and the extra mile that they go to keep their guests happy! They did considered our food preferences and arranged accordingly, that barbecue was great, everyone including elders and kids enjoyed and ladies also got some food recipes from the staff for rice semiya (idiyappam) 😊 We very well felt like family with Charles parents being there and no other guests were there simply felt we had been to some of our own family members place and enjoyed! Thanks Charles for being such a great host and being so friendly and going an extra mile for the birthday celebration I asked for All of us very happy receiving that compliment from you for each of the families 😍 Highly highly recommend this place especially for bigger families groups “The Best”👍
