Hi 😁 we are two young Brother and Sister Alvaro(27) & María(21) joining together on this project www.restinparadisesurfco.com by our passion for the enviroment and social education. We get this old farm to create an example of sustainable house and lifestyle for the world. We are a Surf & Permaculture School, where people can stay and learn about Surf and Sustainable life. We also have an integrated Hotel to Power this project. The SurfFarm is located in Asturias, a small region named Natural Paradise in the North of Spain where King Pelayo started the Reconquer of Spain against musulmans 1300 years Ago. The farm is placed in a special protection Area "El Sueve" mountain range at Ribadesella Village and just 3.8km from Vega Beach, one of the best Surfbeaches in Spain.
During the High Seasson( june, July, Agoust, September) we need help with both Hotel and Farm. By the other side, during low seasson we want to make a Co-Living Space where people can come to develop their projects on a nature and Chill Space, while eating eco food, learning how to Surf or enjoying nature Sports. For Co-Living we have 2 options: -Come as a regular Voluntering program -Send us your Project Idea. If it is a Sustainable Project wich helps the world, we will provide you with bussiness help and assistance, financial investment, food, surf and private Space for proper focusing without working. We Just ask for a small % to keep powering other projects. We want you to have Happy Work. -During Low Seasson we work monday to Friday about 5 hours a day 24h/week.

Needs to respect our lifestyle, it doesn't matter you don't know nothing about it, but we want to see you putting effort on it🙃🌊
Álvaro se confundió con su calendario y no contaba con nosotros, a pesar de la confusión, su reacción fue poco acogedora, ya que la primera noche nos dejó tirados, teniendo que coger una habitación en Gijón, luego nos estuvo evitando las llamadas y cuando al fin pudimos ir al hostal para hablar con él, nos repitió varias veces que no contaba con nosotros y que intentaría montárselo para ponernos en algún lado, pero nos sentimos tan incómodos y rechazados que decidimos irnos, de todas formas a la noche me escribió diciendo que solo tenía sitio solamente para una noche.

Mi experiencia personal dentro del hostel fue genial, lamentablemente tuve compañeros que la pasaron muy mal, un fin de semana por no tener camas disponibles para los turistas, les quitaron las suyas a los voluntarios y no se preocuparon por dónde dormirian, fue una situación de impotencia para todos, dónde tuvimos que ingeniarnos para darles una cama digna, sin que el dueño se enterara puesto que les prohibió dormir ahí.

Hola Joaquin, lo primero darte gracias por tu tiempo y ayuda. A tus compañeros se les habia experido el tiempo establecido de permanecer en el proyecto. Se les aviso con 7 días de antelación que por causa de overbooking no se podían quedar. (No por capricho del personal). Fueron ellos quienes decidieron quedarse sin respetar la dirección, no la dirección quien prohibió nada.
Aquí nos gusta respetar y ayudar a los viajeros para que saquen el máximo provecho de su estancia como tu lo hiciste. Tambien nos gusta que la gente sea sería, profesional y responsable.
Saludos del Equipo Joaquin
