Well, where do I start? I'm a Filipino American recent transplant to the Philippines. I taught as a university lecturer at UC Berkeley, made birdhouses under the San Francisco bay area based Berkeley Rustic Birdhouse label, and ran a infamous and legendary jazz club in Berkeley and Oakland, Ca called Birdland Jazzista Social Club. I now live in Bolinao with my wife who own and operate a healthy dried snack company called Simone's Original Snack and raising two little kids. All modesty aside, I was infamous in Berkeley(look me up) but now enjoying the average (kuya) Mike anonymous life in a small provincial town. Birdland Beach Club We are the first truly eco oriented resort in Bolinao. We built the resort around the existing four million year old coral instead of destroying them unlike many of the other local resorts. All the pathways are sand so there is minimal destruction to the environment. Our style is neo-traditional and rustic shabby chic; imagine Makati or Bonifacio Global City flats but on corral rocks facing the beach. Imagine bamboo, mahogany, and grass kubos with modern amenities. It is owned by wife and husband team,  Bolinao's pride and joy, Joanna Ledesma and Filipino American, Michael Donato Parayno. ​ Birdland Beach Club is for those individuals seeking a priceless experience and who have "been there, done that" already and are no longer seeking the most spectacular swimming pool or manicured landscape. BBC is blessed with magnificent sunsets, continuous Amihan(northern) breeze, and the biggest infinity pool called the West Philippine Sea. ​ We grow our own fruits and vegetables served on the resort. We don't use msg, betchin, gmo products, and magic sarap in our cooking.  We don't use white sugar or brown sugar in our food preparations but only muscovado, honey , and fresh milk. We are vegan, paleo, and vegetarian friendly. Pets are welcome and the can stay in your cabanas. ​ As the owner and former university lecturer in immigration history at the University of California at Berkeley and former owner of two legendary jazz and blues club in the San Francisco Bay Area,(Birdland Jazzista Social Club), I've travelled over 60 countries, stayed in countless resorts, and dreamed of building the perfect eco resort utilizing native materials with minimum destruction or alteration to the natural environment. Birdland Beach Club is the culmination of those travels and experiences with a focus on art, music, food, environmental stewardship, and culture. ​ My wife, Joanna Ledesma, also produces healthy organic, non GMO dehydrated fruits, vegetables, meats, and seafood on the resort under her company Simone's Original Snacks, named after our daughter, Michaela Simone, who enjoys eating healthy. Her products are sold all over the country in health oriented grocery stores, resorts, hotels, and restaurants. She and partner, Mitch Ongpauco opened a store called The Great Food in Makati on Gallardo Street near Greenbelt 5 in 2017 featuring healthy foods. ​ Our higher prices of our rooms reflect our philosophy that labor rights are respected. Our workers earn 30 to 40 percent higher salaries than comparable resorts in Bolinao and they keep all the service charges. So most of our staff if not all earn over P10,000 to P18000 per month, which means they don't have to leave their families and go overseas to endure the abuse, exploitation, oppression and indignities that Filipino OFW's have to face or even go to Manila or other urban areas to find work further contributing to the uneven development of the Philippines between the core economy of Metro Manila and the peripheral economies of the province. What's good for our workers is the best for us and our country as a whole. Our construction crew also earn more than Manila rates since they receive part of the service charge and operate many of the resort tours and activities. ​ Birdland is not a quantitative experience but a qualitative one. We are not a bucket list item but a pensive and introspective journey towards our personal growth and potential for ourselves, friends, and family members. Birdland is for those who love nature, simplicity, and peace and quiet. It has been described in social media as the perfect "hugot" place. Equally, it is just that perfect place to chill on a duyan(hammock), drink a mojito or caipirinha and watch the sunset and evening stars while jazz or bossa nova faintly floats on the ocean air. ​ Bolinao has still has that unspoiled beauty that is reminiscent of Boracay 40 years ago. It is laid back with white sand beaches without the crowd of El Nido, Boracay, or Bohol and overly commercial resorts and hotels. Birdland in the first boutique eco resort in Bolinao. BTW, we also host the annual West Philippine Jazz and Blues Festival every March(March 10, 11, 12, 2017) and will debut our Sunday Organic and Art Farmer's Market mid 2017.  We host the first Bolinao West Philippine Sea Indie Film Festival May 27 and 28, 2017. Traveling is not learning about a new place but learning and understanding more about yourself.
