Property description

40’ heated swimming pool! Wi-fi and satellite tv! Expansive lawn and courtyard area – perfect for weddings or events...Paradise awaits!

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 car is necessary to get around the area. Rancho Escondido is conveniently located in close proximity to a number of amazing day trips. Rancho Escondido is 20 minutes from Sayulita, 10 minutes from San Pancho, 5 minutes from Lo De Marcos, 10 minutes from La Penita, 15 minutes from Guyabitos, and 30 minutes from Chacala.

There are a total of 3 homes at Rancho Escondido comfortably sleeping 25 people and hosting 80+.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2013

About: We are native Californians who have traveled extensively to Mexico over the last 7 years. We have created many friendships with the locals who live near the hacienda and every time we visit, we truly feel like we are part of the community.

Why Lo De Marcos:
We found the property in 2006 and fell in love with it's out-of-the-way location and expansive ocean views. We wanted to build an authentic hacienda that would fit in seemlessly with the natural beauty of the surroundings. What resulted is the true definition of 'getting away from it all' - pure serenity and an authentic mexican experience!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Only minutes away from your usual tourist destinations, 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!
