About this listing
Our hacienda has all the amenities you would expect from a luxury hotel including a concierge and wireless internet. At the same time, live like a local by taking advantage of our private location tucked up behind an authentic mexican pueblo.
Escape the crowds of Sayulita and enjoy authentic Mexico at Hacienda Antigua, a 5 bedroom luxury hacienda that includes all the amenities. This ornate and hand crafted hacienda was built to facilitate the ultimate Mexican vacation. Breathtaking ocean views, a private 40' pool, an expansive lawn and courtyard area perfect for weddings or events, a fully stocked kitchen, and more!
Situated in the private, gated, 12-acre Rancho Escondido retreat near Lo de Marcos (an hour north of Puerto Vallarta), Hacienda Antigua 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!
A depiction of sustainable design, the 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 Bahía de Banderas region.
With five private suites (including a penthouse suite with a private balcony), a gourmet commercial kitchen, and a 40' 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 or watch a game on the 55" plasma tv 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 stocked 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!
