  • Eat better than you do at home!  Don’t waste your time searching for good food.  We provide healthy and delicious meals to keep you feeling great, and are a healthy alternative to the local restaurants.  We serve the freshest and best quality foods available from our organic garden and local farms.

  • Our extras and ad-ons are available to you any time. Learn aerial and circus acrobatics!  Learn to surf, swim, boogie board, cook, garden, and nurture your body!  Try  aerial skills, handstands, and partner balance in our Monkey House Circus Gym.  Get a massage or a nutritional consultation!

  • We truly love having you here. It is our pleasure to host you.

Whether you come alone or with friends and family, your Puerto Escondido Personal Sweet Retreat will be the best vacation you have ever taken.

Delicious and Healthy Meals

Breakfast and lunch are included in your retreat.  The food will be grounding,  nourishing and amazing!  Our meal master, “Skillet,” presents healthy and delicious meals made with fresh, local ingredients.  Most meals include eggs, chicken and/or fish, and vegetarian/vegan options are always available.   We can accommodate most special dietary needs.


Our Personal Retreats are held at the Monkey House community complex a short walk from the beach.  In addition to clean and safe accommodations, there is a swimming pool, an ocean view palapa practice space, the Monkey House Gym for aerial & acrobatics training, lots of grass and hammocks for relaxing between classes, and our Monkey House Kitchen and hang out space.  It is awesome!  Click here for details about the rooms.

Just outside our complex there are cafes, shops, local markets and the beach.  The neighborhood, called La Punta, is small, quiet, and full of friendly people.  Just a mile down the beach is Playa Zicatela where you can find bars, restaurants, open markets, nightlife, and plenty of surf shops to buy Mexican trinkets, beach garb, and anything else you might need.  Puerto Escondido is a safe and welcoming town.  For information about weather in Puerto Escondido, click here.

Your Hosts  

 We are Kerri and Stuart, a Californian and an Ozzie, met when Kerri (aka Kerrisita) was running retreats and Stuart was managing an organic farm in the Caribbean.  Our dreams and visions aligned, and soon after we found our home in Puerto Escondido.  Kerri’s passions are in exercise, yoga, dance, circus arts, healing arts, nutrition, and personal freedom.   Stuart’s heart is in organic farming, cooking (hence his nickname “Meal Master Skillet”), and photography.  Kerri manages, and Stuart builds and fixes things.  Together we love giving our guests a sweet and unforgettable experience.  Come visit and get to know us!  

What is the difference between a Personal Retreat and a Focused Sweet Retreat?

  • Personal Retreats are less expensive than Focused Sweet Retreats, and the instruction is more general.
  • Focused Sweet Retreats are more structured, have more classes, 3 meals a day, and more scheduled events within the retreat.  Personal Retreats include 1 class each day, breakfast and lunch, and more free time to relax and explore the beaches, excursions, and shops in and around Puerto Escondido.
  • Groups tend to be smaller on Personal Retreats.  If you are looking for a group experience, you may want to choose a Focused Sweet Retreat.
  • Focused Sweet Retreats are focused around the classes and are structured as intensive trainings in the subject matter of each retreat. Most Regular Sweet Retreats have a guest teacher who is a master in their specific field of study.  Personal Retreats help you have a healthy and balanced vacation, teach you about health and fitness, and give you the opportunity to choose your daily activities.  Most classes are taught by Kerri, and include general fitness, beginning aerial skills, yoga, core strength, handstands, creative movement, dance workouts, TRX, and booty shaking!
  • Because of the structure of Focused Sweet Retreats, a sense of family/community is created within the group of retreaters.  Personal retreats may have less people and a lot more free/unstructured leisure time.  Retreaters are more “on their own.”  Personal retreats may be better suited for people who enjoy more alone time, solo adventures and to go out and meet new people.
