Hola! We’re Maria José and Dave.

Our home is in Toronto, Canada, but our hearts are in Jardin, Colombia.

We’re delighted to share our special home with you!

We unexpectedly discovered Jardin in 2017 on a trip to explore “the most beautiful Pueblo in Colombia.” We were so enchanted we searched out and found an extraordinary piece of land and built our finca – Finca Mariposa.

We are so excited to share our coffee farm and the incomparable town of Jardin and know that you will fall in love with what our guests always describe as “paradise”.

After the storm, strolling to the plaza

We sincerely hope you love the people you’ll meet as much as we do as you immerse in the tranquility of the mountains, the traditional coffee culture,  and the vibrant energy of Jardin.

What our past guests of Finca Mariposa are saying

Super peaceful, picturesque and meticulously maintained.

We LOVED staying at the Finca Mariposa. It was super peaceful, picturesque and meticulously maintained. What made this experience even better was Daniel and his wife Andrea. They were WONDERFUL!! He ensured we had all transportation, booked all tours and gave us the coffee tour at the Finca. We felt like he was family. Andrea’s breakfast was delish! Waking up to the view and coffee was exactly what we wanted. We traveled with our two daughters and they didn’t want to leave. There is no TV but they were never bored. 10/10.. would highly recommend it. Tip: wear long pants on the coffee tour. 🙂

We are still speechless!

We are still speechless about this oasis days later. We don’t think it’s possible to find a better Airbnb in the world. Daniel was so kind, helpful, and made us feel right at home! We are already dying to return.

Waking up to a real life painting.

It’s paradise out here! Great space for a group of friends or family, it will be tough to round them up to leave. Views are amazing. Waking up to a real life painting. Daniel was an awesome host and made sure we had everything. His tours and knowledge of the area are not to be missed and neither is the breakfast they can make. Just makes it such a nice experience to wake up and have a hot cup of coffee and a traditional Colombian breakfast ready.


By far the highlight of our trip to Colombia!

Finca Mariposa was by far the highlight of our trip to Colombia! The views during the day are incredible and the stars at night are unbelievable. Daniel and his family were amazing and helped us every step of the way, from arranging transportation, setting up horseback riding, giving us a coffee tour and cooking some amazing food. The finca itself was comfortable, has fast and reliable wifi and filtered water and coffee. I could not recommend this place enough!


It’s a hidden gem!

If your thinking twice…. Don’t!!!!!!!! This place was so amazing and the hosts there at the Finca are the most humble kind people ever. It’s a hidden gem where you can leave the crazy world behind and reconnect with this beautiful world we are privileged to live in! The drive up is lined with plantains trees and a cute little local bar even!!! And then the view from your hammock is one you will not want to leave!!!


As a group of 4 women we had the most wonderful time

We loved every second of this peaceful stay at the beautiful finca mariposa. We soaked in the views of the mountains, explored Jardin, and best of all got a taste of the incredible coffee grown on the land. Daniel was our host and he is so extremely kind and helpful and informative and gave us the best coffee tour. We were a group of 4 women and had the most wonderful time. We would go back in a heartbeat. Thank you for everything!!


Places like this are what AirBnB was made for

Places like this are what AirBnB was made for. Book this place and you won’t be disappointed! Use all the recommended contacts for rides, take the private coffee tour, and plan plenty of time for lounging in the hammock, because you won’t want to leave once you arrive. The on-site hosts are absolutely wonderful and communication with the off-site hosts was fast and helpful. For those digital nomads out there, the WiFi was strong enough to videoconference without any issues. We’ll come back to visit as soon as we can!


This finca is really amazing!

“This finca is really amazing. The hosts are incredibly helpful and attentive and they have ensured the finca has been built and maintained to a very high standard. Its set in huge grounds with an amazing panoramic view of the mountains around Jardin. Would certainly stay again no question.”

The mariposa image at Finca Mariposa

It’s a magical place, with warm people.

Plan on not wanting to leave. Plan on spending quiet mornings and evenings enjoying the view, the birds, and the generous patio. We wandered the property and picked fruit ; enjoyed the town square; rode a tuk-tuk and a cable car; ate a meal with Daniel and Andrea’s lovely family and wondered how soon we could make plans to return. On the last morning, we hiked the steep trail down to the waterfall, be sure to make time for it. It’s a magical place, with warm people.

Finca Mariposa has greatly exceeded our expectations

Our stay in Finca Mariposa has greatly exceeded our expectations. We knew that it would be an amazing place but what made our stay memorable have been its people and their warm hospitality. In this trip you not only find silence, a beautiful house and stunning views, you also get know how coffee is made (the coffee tour is a MUST). In short, we wish we stayed there a LOT longer. You won’t regret it!
