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 six 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

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!

Unique/One of a Kind Haciend/Wedding Venue!
My husband and I recently stayed at Hacienda Antiqua for a week. Not only was it where we were vacationing, but we also got married here. The wedding/trip was a year in the making and Kelley was there holding our hand through the entire process, the entire time. Kelley and her staff did not let us down on when recommending vendors for our wedding, excursions for our families or chefs for special dinners along the way. We couldn't have asked for a more hospitable team!

The hacienda was spectacular. Every time I took a second to look around, I saw something new and interesting. I just wish I had someone there to tell me all the stories of all the different architectural pieces and the decor. You can just tell it all has a long history. The pool is a great size for a large group...you never felt like you were on top of each other.

As a wedding venue, Hacienda Antigua was magical. The wedding planner did an amazing job creating an atmosphere that blew me away. Everyone said it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever been too. We had 60ish guests, which was perfect for all the outdoor space this place offers. Seriously, if you are looking for a unique place for your wedding, this IS IT!

We will definitely come back if they will have us!

Dream Wedding!!!
We had our dream wedding at Hacienda Antigua!!! The venue truly lends itself to creating pure magic on one of the most important days of your life: your wedding day. Easy to access for vendors. Beautiful scenic backdrop for wedding photos. Intimate venue for an unforgettable day. Our guests were so impressed with the Hacienda that they are now planning vacations, retreats, anniversaries at this very property. What was the most special about our stay at Hacienda Antigua was the mini-family vacation we had with our parents and with our siblings and their children!!! We will never forget the Hacienda and are forever grateful to Kelley and her staff for being such great hosts!!!!

Absolutely amazing!
We rented the hacienda for a family trip and had a blast! The pictures are amazing, but the actual place is even more beautiful in person. The attention to detail and authenticity is incredible. The place is so serene and tranquil, you feel like you've found a secret place. But you're still very near all the little towns up and down the coast to partake in shopping, restaurants, and activities. Lo de Marcos beach was so beautiful and practically deserted! With a full staff and concierge, our every need was taken care of. Kelley was extremely attentive and helpful in the planning stages. We will definitely return to the hacienda!

Paradise! Every detail was incredible!
Our stay at Hacienda Antigua was WAY BEYOND all expectations. The home and grounds were impeccable and the service was superb. I am still dreaming about the delicious homemade guacamole and margaritas served poolside. This vacation was extremely affordable considering the 5 star treatment and deluxe amenities Hacienda Antigua has to offer. I can't wait to return to this little secret paradise.

Beautiful Home and Property - Lovely View
I would definitely recommend the Hacienda Antigua! What a gorgeous retreat. The house and property are beautiful, inside and out. (Well maintained and very clean.) The interior design and furnishings are perfect. (Beautiful, authentic design) Pool was perfect temperature, well situated in the center of the patio. Beds are very comfortable and each room is spacious and includes a private bath. The morning breakfasts were delicious and it was wonderful to have the staff come to clean room and make the beds daily. We had massages on property and also enjoyed yoga on the covered deck with a lovely view. The staff helped plan a catamaran trip in the bay. We had a Sommelier come in for wine tasting. We took daily trips to the local beaches. It was an amazing, relaxing and perfect vacation with my girlfriends! We will definitely be back annually!

Wonderful location, magnificent property!
We went to Hacienda Antigua to celebrate my husband´s 50th birthday hoping to have a great weekend, but we received so much more. The house is amazing, the view is unbelievable, and the staff is great! Our guests were very happy and could not get enough of the house, which is perfectly decorated, and with all amenities needed to rest and enjoy a weekend off. It has 5 bedrooms, perfect for 10 guests.
The staff cooked for us delicious mexican food for breakfast and kept everything clean during our stay.
There was even someone helping us with the decoration of the terrace (where we had the party), and is the perfect place to have a celebration.
We also booked Casa Molendera, which is next door to the Hacienda for the rest of our guests and everything was excellent too.
Thanks to Kelley who made every step really easy, gave us some great suggestions for tours in the area. I highly recommend this place for celebrations, it´s perfect.

Best Vacation Ever
One of the most beautiful properties I have ever been to! Hacienda Antigua is absolutely amazing. The staff were incredibly helpful and provided some absolutely fantastic meals. The property is immaculate and hidden away from the world, while still be relatively close to Lo De Marcos and San Pancho if you have interest in visiting town.

I would say more, but really don't want to encourage more people to go here as I would like to return over and over and don't want it to get too crowded. The owners, the manager, the staff, and the property are all WAY above expectations and I look forward to returning again soon.

Absolutely Stunning
Six of us thoroughly enjoyed our ten days here recently. The property and grounds were immaculately maintained and everything was in perfect order. We were met with a fantastic regional style dinner (and margaritas!) upon arrival, and that was followed by ten delicious (and each one different) hot breakfasts! Dora and Norma were wonderful cooks as well as housekeepers....thank you ladies! Everything was great but to me the standouts were the huge, beautiful swimming pool, and the brand new (again huge) palapa housing an outdoor kitchen with full size appliances and grills, a large dining table and bathroom. The house was so large and lovely I didn't think we'd venture out there but we did more than once and loved it! Gabriel, the property manager was helpful, and available, yet unobtrusive...he's great! Booking the property was simple and straightforward and Kelley was friendly and responsive. The property had amazing jungle and "forever" ocean views thanks to its location. We have stayed in Sayulita and San Francisco many times before but were looking for privacy and rest and relaxation this time that Hacienda Antigua certainly provided! Both of those towns are an easy trip if you have a rental car, but like us you may not want to leave at all! We will certainly return!

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!
