Expansive views of the ocean - everything you need for the perfect vacation!

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 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+.

About Kelley Sanchez

We are native Californians who have traveled extensively to Mexico over the last 10 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.

Kelley Sanchez purchased this villa in 2013

Why Kelley Sanchez chose Úrsulo Galvan

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!

What makes this villa unique

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!

Truly Exceptional

  • 5 of 5

We can't begin to express what a wonderful experience we had. From our initial email inquiry to our arrival to our stay to our departure, every aspect was top notch. Kelley was incredibly responsive and helpful throughout the booking process and prepping us for our arrival. Gabriel was so gracious and welcoming. The hacienda itself is spectacular to say the least. Every square inch is inspired and the detail put into this very special place is absolutely incredible. As stunning as the photographs are, one must really experience this place themselves. If you are looking for a once-in-a-lifetime trip away from crowds, stay here. You are truly away from it all. We did manage to pry ourselves away to go explore Sayulita and San Pancho. Both towns are magical in their own ways. We will definitely be planning a return visit. Thank you for everything!

WOW - such a beautiful location and amazing hosts

  • 5 of 5

Can't really gush enough about the Hacienda. It was a beautiful, gorgeous, and wonderful stay at one of the most amazing houses we've ever stayed in. Everything from the house, the home cooked breakfast, welcome dinner, help from Gabriel, and views were awesome. It was a pleasure working with the homeowners and hosts and we will definitely plan to visit again.

Nothing like it!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing property and views. The staff was incredible. The hacienda has more attention to detail than any other house I've stayed at. Our group loved every minute of our vacation. Would go back tomorrow if I could!

Simply amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Staying here is more like staying in your own personal boutique hotel with better amenities (breakfast and house cleaning daily), beautiful lighting and decor, and ample space. Each day is a new surprise, view, or thoughtfully decorated nook perfect for your morning coffee or watching the sun set with a margarita in hand. We were a party of 10 with 4 children 10 to 3 years old and the estate was magical to them. A lawn to run on, a salt water pool, hammocks for lazy games of Uno, and huge tables for family dinners. We hired a local chef for lunch and dinner, a masseuse and had a private tequila tasting all at the hacienda arranged by Gabriel, who was wonderful. The hard part was actually tearing ourselves away from the estate to explore. It was close enough to the bustle of Sayulita, but less than a 5 minute drive to the beaches of lo de Marcos for sunset swims and excursions to La Chacala and San Francisco. We are already talking about reconvening here for next Spring break as any destination we pick next is guaranteed to fall short. Whoever built the hacienda was deliberate on how it would affect you. A perfect destination where memories are made.

Amazing Home!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at Hacienda Antigua. We stayed for two weeks the house is exceptional and the attention to detail is incredible. All of our guests had a great time, Dora and Hellica were so cordial and did a great job with the breakfast and keeping the house tidy. Gabrielle is such a professional, anytime we requested anything he was so prompt.

Would definitely recommend our friends or anyone to experience Hacienda Antigua.

We try to travel a lot-- and we usually travel with our friends and our children, which makes us pay attention to the "little things" when it comes to accommodations and amenities--and Hacienda Antigua is by far the best property we have had the pleasure of visiting! The place itself is astonishingly beautiful. From the architecture and decor to the landscape and the location--perched on a bluff with an uninterrupted view of the ocean on one side and a lush canopy of vegetation from the other perspective--it was truly breath-taking.

Each suite is decorated in such an authentic, old-world Mexico style. One glimpse around and it makes you appreciate the beauty and historic value of the local culture.

And the people are amazing! The concierge service is excellent: prompt, friendly, and so helpful. We opted to get a few meals catered in addition to the wonderful breakfasts and welcome meal they provide free of charge, and we even saw the catering staff at the local market stocking up on the freshest ingredients for our meal later! The property and the local community have a great relationship, as was apparent by the friendly, inviting manner in which everyone treated us. It's really nice to walk around the nearby towns of Lo de Marcos and Sayulita, and enjoy the uncrowded, pristine beaches and exceptional shopping.

From the people and the place to the food and the activities, this is the best place to vacation ever!
