Hacienda Antigua is an exquisite property just 20 minutes north of Sayulita. We've been featured as the finale episode on a new travel show!  Hosted by Matt Landau, one of the world's foremost vacation rental industry experts, A Sense of Place gives a wonderful representation of the hacienda and the surrounding area.  See it at senseofplaceshow, episode 13.

Situated in the private, gated, 12-acre Rancho Escondido retreat near Lo de Marcos (just 20 minutes north of Sayulita), Hacienda Antigua is an exquisite luxury property overlooking the ocean and jungle. The Hacienda is only minutes away from your usual tourist destinations. But when you arrive, it feels a world apart. The location is perfect for those who want to get away from it all, but still be close enough to play a round of golf, take a sunset sailing cruise, or dine at an authentic Mexican restaurant! Hacienda Antigua can also host your wedding or special event! Please see our event venue page for more information.

A depiction of sustainable design, Hacienda Antigua was constructed mainly of historic materials recovered from Mexican haciendas and churches too old to restore. Ancient stone, wood, and iron building materials along with antique furnishings were hand selected to add character and history, evoking the feel of a genuine hacienda during the post-classic era in the Bahia de Banderas region.

With eight private suites (including a penthouse suite with a private balcony), a gourmet commercial kitchen, and a 40 foot heated saltwater pool accented with traditional talavera tile and venetian glass, Hacienda Antigua is luxury redefined. It is the perfect place to relax with family and friends! Entertain in the authentic mexican cantina that opens up to a 1,000 square foot veranda. Enjoy the stunning 270-degree view of turquoise-blue waters, tropical jungles and majestic mountains. Lounge by the pool with a cold cerveza, nap on an outdoor lounge, or play a game of cards around the table while your friends or family blend up another pitcher of margaritas!

The fully equipped gourmet kitchen has everything you will need to create wonderful meals from fresh local ingredients or cater a special event for a larger group. Two commercial sinks and a commercial oven, refrigerator, and dedicated ice machine add to the functionality of this beautiful rustic kitchen. Enjoy al fresco dining in the courtyard or a more formal dinner at the 10-foot spanish colonial dining table. If you would like to arrive to a fully stocked pantry & fridge, send us a list and we will do the shopping before you arrive (for a small additional fee). At your request, a personal cook can be arranged to prepare mexican delicacies for you.

The thoughtfully laid out floor plan and incomparable ambiance is perfect for entertaining as is the expansive yard landscaped with tropical plants and a spacious grass area. It's the perfect spot for a wedding! A state-of-the art indoor/outdoor sound system provides all the technical equipment you will need for your big event! Designed and constructed to look as though it has been thriving for 500 years, hacienda antigua offers an authentic taste of mexico with five-star accommodations, features, and amenities.

Whether you are planning a family vacation, a group adventure, a company retreat, or an unforgettable wedding, Hacienda Antigua provides a first-class experience like none other. Take a trip back in time to this old-world style hacienda that offers every modern convenience. For information regarding hosting a wedding or other special event, please visit our Event Venue page

INCREDIBLE HOUSE! Every detail is amazing.
"PARADISE" is the best word to describe this house. The view from the pool to the ocean is incredible! The architecture of the house keeps the eye finding beauty everywhere you look. Yoga on the Palapa, swimming in the pool, walking on the grass, sleeping in comfortable rooms with king size beds - every detail was amazing. The meals provided on site were DELICIOUS! I could have just spent five days at the house and never left! I would love to have a family reunion there in the future. Well worth the money spent because the location and house is so UNIQUE and EXQUISITE!

Amazing Hacienda...Perfect for family retreat
Can't say enough good things about Hacienda Antigua! We a family reunion/retreat/getaway, and couldn't be happier. Sunsets, thunderstorms, frogs, fabulous food, pool time, massages, yoga, and more…it was a great way for our extended family to come together and relax. Large enough for us to have our space, and intimate enough for us to bond together. The staff were amazing - friendly and always helpful. Kelley's recommendations were spot on! Can't wait to come back!

Definitely plan on coming back!
I would highly recommend Hacienda antigua for vacation or in my case your wedding! The venue and scenery is amazing! Kelley is so kind and attentive to your needs. We moved our wedding due to COVID and she was so easy to work with as far as changing dates and answering all my questions concerning the other properties at Rancho escondido. The service she provided was amazing and even was able to get a doctor to the hacienda to provide COVID tests for those of us who were flying back. This is a must see place and the pictures just don’t do it justice. We definitely plan on going back just to vacation and explore more of the surrounding towns. You will not regret choosing to marry here or vacationing here.

Perfect venue for a family vacation!
Our family vacation at Hacienda Antigua was one of the most special and memorable vacations we have ever had. The home was spacious, well designed, beautiful and had unique and amazing accommodations for everyone in our family. The views and the deep purple sunsets were simply breathtaking. At the Hacienda we swam in the refreshing pool, ate delicious food prepared by the Hacienda'a staff, had family scavenger hunts on the grounds and enjoyed tasty margaritas playing card games on the outdoor patio. The manager was super helpful in providing us with local recommendations of where to go and what to do, which included going to some of the best restaurants EVER, horseback riding, snorkeling, paddle boarding, sight seeing and experiencing the local culture at gorgeous beaches that were unspoiled by a million tourists everywhere. The hospitality and service was exceptional. We will be back!

Wow! Perfect wedding venue
We recently celebrated our wedding at Hacienda Antigua. This place is amazing! If you are looking for a place for a family reunion, friends getaway, or wedding/anniversary celebration, Hacienda is perfect. The pool is beautiful.

The kitchen is huge and perfect for a large group. The property manager (Arcelia) was also our private chef for the time that we were at Hacienda. There is a large yard and outdoor palapa with a full fridge, bathroom, and wet bar and BBQ area. Lighting was gorgeous at night.

Our rooms were very unique. You can rent this property between 5-8 rooms. The upstairs master suite has a large terrace, which is where we were able to get ready for our wedding. Some of the bathrooms are open to the outdoors, which was an unique experience. We did not have any problems with pests or animals. We felt very safe.

We also rented an adjacent property (warning: there is a steep road connecting the 2 properties, so we ended up renting a golf cart for our older family members). There are 3 properties close to each other, if you have a large group. We were able to arrange private transportation, in order to avoid car rental.

From a Wedding Photographer's Perspective, ABSOLUTELY STUNNING
I am a wedding photographer and I frequently travel to the Sayulita area for weddings. I shot a wedding at Hacienda Antigua earlier this year and it was incredible. The venue has so many gorgeous areas for photos. You can really get a huge variety, all at one property. The location sits facing sunset, which makes for beautiful ceremony and sunset photos. Highly recommend.

Beautiful place!
This house is very comfortable, peaceful and beautiful! The staff are very welcoming! It’s stocked with everything you may need and then some. Great hot showers, comfy beds, soft towels, and more. Fun towns nearby within 20 minutes to explore. Loved San Pancho and Lo de Marcos has the best churros ever available by cart at the town square for $1 usd!! If you want to relax, and enjoy quality time......this is the place! A group of 10 ladies travels to Mexico every year and we all agreed that this is one of the best properties we have stayed at!

We live and work on the central coast of California, but 14 years ago we embarked on the challenging adventure of building a hacienda using mostly historic materials. We love being a part of the local community!
