Our history

Zen II Net opened its doors in early 2002. After over 22 years of a successful but stressful retail/design/business  life in the U.S., we decided to move to the southern coast of Andalucia.  But after a few months boredom set in and we needed to put our creative selves to work again so we opened a multi-faceted business in the center of Almuñécar, a medium-sized town (approximately 26,000 residents) on the Mediterranean coast. Our business combined our love of technology and our boundless creativity.   With our combined 40-years' background in design, graphics, marketing, business development, human resources, and computer knowledge,  always with an international clientele, we were prepared to forge ahead.


We designed our small shop in a way that was unlike other internet places:  NOT dark but  warm and inviting, incorporating a 200 liter fresh-water aquarium with colorful koi, and various types of handcrafted items for sale. People did not sit in cubicles  but instead had their own personal space within an open environment. It was smoke-free (back before there was a No-Smoking law), game-free (no noisy children) and dog-free (we loved them but many customers did not).

And the name? Having been long-time adherents of the "Zen" concepts of tranquility, natural elements, soothing colors, quietness and peace, the shop’s interior design accomplished this environment. Here it co-existed with today's world, theNet,” while the "II" represented us,  a  pair of Geminis.  We created a unique environment  unlike other "cybercafes:" business-oriented, a "we can do it" attitude, and the best customer-service possible. We became known as THE place to work in a safe place, in peace and quiet, meet friends, get information, excellent service and assistance...... all in a Zen-like environment. Over the  years, our business evolved into more of a Computer and Business Center mainly due to the requests and needs of our multi-national client base. We have always been forward-thinking and cognizant of the latest technologies -  never stagnant - so we developed other small businesses to work alongside their parent:  www.zen2books.com,www.a-smart-biz.com www.almunecar.se and www.costatropical.se    (the latter two in Swedish)  each with its own degree of success. All these  companion businesses were driven by our same dedication and sense of quality and professionalism...both online and in person.
