We met in Los Angeles thirteen years ago. We both love traveling and have been all around the world. Friends living in Costa Rica enticed us to visit, and we fell in love with both the country and the small community, Tamarindo, where we now live. We built the Breeze ourselves and have received many accolades for contributing to the beauty and enhancement of Tamarindo. Prior to becoming proprietors, we had a successful handbag business, which we still run as well. We are the creators of this beautiful line of hand-embroidered handbags called Papillon. In my 30's, I (Rhonda) was a freelance photographer for Associated Press in Los Angeles and Paris, France, and my husband, Jean Marc, created beautiful bed and table linens in Hong Kong. We are a fun-loving couple, love the outdoors, and raising our lovely daughter, four dogs, and one cat.
