Love Notes

“Baja Beach Retreats is a welcome oasis from my hectic work and life schedule. The retreat’s idyllic location on Cerritos Beach combined with Jenn’s hospitable, warm and welcoming spirit had me feeling rejuvenated in no time. I’ve been learning to surf for three years, and the surf instruction on Cerritos Beach enabled me to have by far the best surf day of my life. Your days will fly by as you work with a top notch instructor to improve your Spanish. The yoga facility has fantastic ocean views, allowing you to restore inner balance during this fun and friendly retreat experience. I will be returning!” ~Sarah  Daitch, Fort Smith, NWT, Canada

“I took a Baja Beach Retreat with some friends in March 2015 and had a wonderful experience for my first trip to Baja. Jenn Swift went above and beyond to create the perfect trip for us. She worked with local businesses to arrange surf lessons, yoga and Spanish classes. She hosted breakfast at her “casita” each morning with a variety of fresh fruits, eggs, yogurt and other foods we requested.  After breakfast, we would walk or ride to the beach to surf or to a nearby yoga studio with an amazing ocean view.   Jenn is a kind, fun loving Canadian who showed us why she fell in love with Baja a few years back.” ~ Rebecca Gleason, Bozeman, MT, USA

“Baja Beach Retreats is a perfect mix of activities to stimulate the mind and body.  The yoga facility offers a breath taking view of the Pacific with migrating whales passing by.  The peaceful Cerritos beach community has comfortable and fully equipped accommodations, and a lovely patio and pool area.  We enjoyed plenty of relaxing beach time and excellent surf, plus a great variety of activities when we felt like leaving the shore.   Our Spanish instructor made it fun to learn and practice the language.  If you are looking to experience the best of Baja, you can’t go wrong with Baja Beach Retreats.” ~ Kate Regan, Bozeman, MT, USA

“Baja Beach Retreats is an ideal vacation!  Our week was the perfect blend of relaxation, rejuvenation, exploration, and fun!”  ~ Shelly B, Annapolis, Maryland, USA

“It started with a cold Corona (or as I was to learn – cervesa) in the airport parking lot and just got better from there! Jenn greeting us with a smile and a hug and driving the scenic roads to Cerritos Beach. What can I say about Cerritos and Villas de Cerritos Beach! If you are looking to be a tourist this isn’t for you. If, however, you are looking to be a traveller (as our new friend Anne, who we met at BSS, would say) and want an authentic experience that challenges and inspires you daily Cerritos and Baja Spanish School is IT!!!! Guillermo (our Jedi of a Spanish teacher) is the kindest, most accommodating, most interesting person on the Baja I am certain! He geared the classes to our ability and so that we could survive on the outings we took to Todos Santos and La Paz (and all the stops in between). The surfing and yoga instructors were equally as astounding in their knowledge and accommodation of someone who was trying to speak Spanish for the first time ever and wanted to practice as much as possible. And what can I say about our hostess!?!? Jenn was incredible! Cooking us breakfasts that were equal parts familiar and inspired by our surroundings (which, by the way, are the most adorable, comfortable, clean, and friendly this side of the Cerritos surf break!), helping us practice our Spanish long after Guillermo had left us for the day, introducing us to all the staff and neighbors at the villa, driving us to secluded beaches, and taking us to Baja beach reggae parties! I can not recommend this experience highly enough for people of all ages and abilities; there is something for everyone and a hostess who will make you long to return to la playa!
Muchos Gracias Amiga” ~ Landa & Nathan M, Victoria, Canada

“Baja Beach Retreats was a perfect holiday.  The yoga was amazing with its beautiful beach location.  Practicing yoga in the sunset, watching whales in the water during sun salutations was unforgettable.  Jenn was super organized and flexible and catered to our group’s needs.  She picked us up at the airport and gave us a great tour as we drove to Cerritos.  Spanish school was well taught and organized.  The location was beautiful and I could walk to the beach, learn to surf and enjoy reading on the roof top or go for a swim in the swimming pool.  The food was amazing with full breakfast and even a private chef one evening who cooked us an amazing feast of fish tacos!  Excursions to the weekend market, local towns and amazing farm restaurant was unforgettable. Thanks Jenn for an amazing experience!”  ~ Sunny J, Victoria, Canada
