Situated in the private, gated, 12-acre rancho escondido retreat near lo de marcos (an hour north of puerto vallarta), hacienda antigua is an exquisite luxury property overlooking the ocean and jungle. 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 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!
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.

"A relaxing getaway with a gorgeous view of the ocean"
Left on 01/21/2014 for a stay in November 2013 | Jeff & Kristin ElliottReviewed Jan 21, 2014Stayed Nov 2013
What an adventure we had! When we booked the house we were looking for a true local experience not the typical tourist vacation. We loved the remote beaches, and the authentic towns to go explore. Their were even beach equipment available (paddle boards, boogie boards, surf boards, and kayaks) all free for us to use. Driving through the little village to get to the house was a great experience for my kids, and made our off the beaten path vacation even better. Zip Lining through the jungle with MiChaparrita in Sayulita, was so amazing and my kids are still talking about it. We also had the most spectacular time on the ally Cat catamaran ride, it was worth every penny. We saw Whales and Dolphins through out the day, and enjoyed snorkeling, kayaking and had great food and service. We would definitely book it again. When we viewed the video of the house I thought it looked so spectacular little did I know that it was even better in person! Every detail in this house was incredible, clearly much thought went into the materials and decor used. The open living floor plan is comfortable and reveals the most spectacular panoramic view. We were welcomed on our arrival with cold beverages and snacks and a coordinator was there to answer any questions we had and even helped to book our excursions. If you like to cook, the kitchen is a chefs dream. We loved the fact that we were picked up in a spacious suburban at the airport, and our rental car was delivered the next day. I was surprised that they even had free internet, and each morning we had a wonderful complimentary continental breakfast freshly prepared. The bedrooms are large and comfortable (with air conditioning). The house is hugely spacious and very private. We will definitely be booking this house for another vacation.
