About Bob Rowland

We now make SMA our full time home after years of visiting from Western US homes. We love the near perfect weather, good golfing, great restaurants, and the diverse and interesting culture of this wonderful place.

Bob Rowland purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Bob Rowland chose San Miguel de Allende

We searched for the best combination of location, privacy, security, and modern conveniences before purchasing this home, and the Casita has all those qualities and its own special charm as well. It is a short, flat walk to the Jardin, we're two blocks from the lovely Parque Juarez, and the action on the Ancha is close by. We lived in the Casita while our home was being remodeled and know that it is a perfect place for your stay in SMA.

enjoyed our stay - met all of our expectations

  • 5 of 5

Casita was an excellent choice for our first visit to SMA. Pictures are very accurate. Perfect size for 2. very nice area of town. quiet. hosts were outstanding. lots of good suggestions for restaurants, activities, etc. we pretty much walked everywhere. only issue for some might be the 20 minute or so walk to Centro with some uphill on the way back (a small section on cobblestones) although not any really steep hills. we got more used to the uphill walking, narrow sidewalks and cobblestone streets the longer we stayed so not a problem for us.

we are hoping to get back to SMA again next year and would not hesitate to book again on our next trip.

What a treat!

  • 5 of 5

I am very spoiled from living two weeks in the Rowland's casita in Ojo de Agua. I walked everywhere except in the rain and from the grocery store. The landscaping is immaculate and colorful. Bob and his brother Ken were very helpful and careful to provide me with any information and advice I would need for a nice visit. Very upscale living in San Miguel de Allende!

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Casita Mariposita did not disappoint! This is a very ambient, comfortable apartment in a quiet, safe neighbourhood and centrally located. A well equipped kitchen with purified water plus bathroom toiletries and hairdryer were most welcome and appreciated. Also a great film library of DVDs for some relaxing time in the evening after walking the cobbles all day. A huge plus is having the owners live on site if any difficulties arise. The owners are a very friendly, hospitable, accommodating couple and easy to do business with. We had a delay in our flight and arrived at midnight, very tired after long travels. The owner was there to greet us and left breakfast supplies in the kitchen along with fresh baked muffins in the morning. We would certainly return to this casita on future trips and recommend it highly.

Car: not necessary

Great location. A quick walk to shops, restaurants, gallaries with no steep streets to climb. Our casita is behind a gated wall on a quiet dead-end street. 10 min. walk to Instituto, 12 min to Jardin, 5 min. to Parque Juarez.
