We had a wonderful stay at Mawasi Finca. We stayed in the El Nido cabin, which is beautiful with great views. The bathroom and shower are outside, and as described, the walls are only shoulder height. We did not have the breakfast, but has a community pizza party one night. William did a terrific job making the pizzas in his... More

After several busy days in Bogota, Mawasi Finca was a welcome sight. We stayed in La Rohana and we could not have been more pleased with our accommodations. It is such a unique place, clearly built with passion and love. Views from every angle, extremely cozy and functional. We arrived mid - afternoon and didn't even consider leaving the Finca... More

We loved our stay at Mawasi. William was so kind and helpful. The finca itself is beautiful; an incredible product of his and Bonnie's hard work and passion. We stayed in La Rohana, where attention to detail was everywhere. William made us delicious breakfasts and made sure that we felt at home. We were able to completely relax and enjoy... More

My girlfriend and I are a young couple that traveled in Colombia for a week and a half and stayed in 6 different places. Mawasi Finca was definitely a highlight of our trip. We communicated with Bonnie leading up to our trip and she was extremely helpful in determining how to get there, advice, and responsive over email always. Bonnie... More

We spent a few days at Finca Mawasi right before Christmas. William and Bonnie, the hosts, were traveling but we were well-cared for in spite of their absence. We relaxed in the beautiful gardens,made pizza in the mud pizza oven (AMAZING), went "hunting"for bull frogs with flashlights at night,and fed the chickens in the morning. There were caretakers who came... More

My friend and I stayed in El Nido, the small cabin with an outdoor shower and bathroom. It was perfect: waking up to lie in bed and look straight out at the mountains! The outdoor shower was very private and lots of fun, with lots of hot water, too. I didn't meet Bonnie but she was so very helpful arranging... More

We just returned from a trip to Colombia with our two kids (ages 3 and 5-years) and Mawasi Finca won our hearts. The kids said it was their favorite place from our entire trip. The cabins are gorgeous, the property is so lovely, and William is perhaps the most gracious host you could imagine. His breakfasts are worth every penny,... More

My wife and I are the proud parents of 2 young children. Our son is 3 and our daughter is 17 months. That has definitely changed our traveling style. We are currently living in Bogota, Colombia and Finca Mawasi was the perfect getaway for us because of its removal from the hustle, bustle, and pollution of Bogota. Its proximity to... More

I highly recommend Mawasi Finca as a place to stay if you are visiting lovely Villa de Leyva. The site is very impressive in its serene setting surrounded by gorgeous landscape. The cabins are warm, clean, and beautifully unique in design, and the owners Bonnie and William are the most gracious hosts. To explore the area, there are great hikes... More
