About Randy Fossum
As a native Minnesotan, I have taken many winter vacations and would select a new destination every year until I first visited Isla Mujeres. After my first visit, I knew I would return and eventually bought my first condo in 2012 with a friend who was also convinced to purchase with me after being on the island only two days. After five years of owning our first condo we decided to purchase a second condo in 2017. While this is a new condo for us, we have plenty of experience and excellent ratings on our other property.
Randy Fossum purchased this Condo in 2017

Great location, one of the BEST!
This was our 13th time to the island in 4 years and it was one of the best locations and properties we have stayed at. Great communication throughout the time of booking. Lots of room, close to everything and the beach was awesome! I would stay here again.
Randy was great to communicate with, prompt responses each time and he would check in on me just to make sure we were not in need of anything.
We arrived early and the hotel staff was very nice to hold our bags so we could goto the beach.
The room is very impressive and in a great location. You are close to everything, with a golf cart rental next door. The room is stocked with a cooler for your use, glasses, refrigerator and shot glasses. The air conditioner was very cold and kept us very comfortable for our entire stay. Housekeeping was great each day we were there. I would recommend being prepared to leave them a tip. Water wasn’t draining well in one of the showers and the owner responded in putting in a service Request.
I would highly recommend this room to anybody looking for a place for 6 people they will all sleep very comfortably.
Another great time at Ixchel
Ixchel is a wonderful property. We have stayed on both sides of the hotel. Each particular unit we have stayed at, have been great. Randy, the owner of 703 is a great communicator and will send helpful island hints for new visitors to the island. As for 703, it was great for our stay. It has a lot of great points (like most nice places do) BUT this unit has excellent Air Conditioning in three separate/independent areas and thus three separate AC thermostats for those who enjoy staying cool and or sleeping even cooler. Ixchel is beachfront, and is just a very short stroll to shopping and dining. 703 and the hotel property itself are clean, well kept and up to date. 703 has plenty of nice quality kitchen ware for those planning on cooking and dining in (not a hodgepodge of second hand mismatched stuff). My wife and I traveled with our two middle school aged children and we had plenty of room to feel comfortable, spread out, to eat, relax on the patio etc. We never once felt cramped or on top of each other. Furniture and decor are modern and stylish. Beds were comfortable and clean. Double sinks in one bathroom with plenty of counter space. Our closet had nice drawers and plenty of storage space which is nice to not live directly out of your suitcase. Towels were nice and thick...but not the hotel’s provided beach towels. The beach provided towels could use an upgrade. Everyone has different standards and expectations, but for us we really enjoyed our stay...albeit we simply slept there, awoke, cooked breakfast and then straight out the door we went...then repeated. Still, it felt like a home away from home and not a big step down (as other hotels have felt). Very quite and we never once heard another tenant. In fact we only saw one other couple (just once) on the entire PH floor. For us, it was another relaxing trip with great memories. Part of having great memories...is being able to stay at a place that everyone is happy to temporarily call home. Thanks Randy for providing such a place. Tip: the golf cart rental next door to Ixchel (in our experience) has faster double facing forward carts than another local vendor...and less expensive. Spending an afternoon sightseeing on the south end of the island is a must if time permits and by golf cart makes it more enjoyable. Travel well!
Great Apartment in Paradise
The apartment is in a great location right next to Playa Norte, one of the best beaches in the world. Waking up and being able to go out to the terrace and see the beautiful beach and sea each morning is amazing. As the apartment is set back from the beach it means the occasional parties hosted on the beach are not disturbing with excellent insulation in each room. The facilities are all modern and up to date working well.
The room was great and so were the views! Very clean! Updated and very nice! Thanks
Summer Island Getaway
This property is ideally suited for families desiring to visit and explore Isla Mujeres. Randy (owner) was very conscientious about checking in and making sure all of our needs were met. The property is located on Playa Norte which is centrally located where most of the restaurants, shopping and swimming beaches are located. We found ourselves going on excursions or renting a golf cart to venture to quieter more remote areas of the island during the day and walking to nearby restaurants in the evening. We had a wonderful stay. The people are friendly and food tasteful and inexpensive, Favorite activities where swimming with whale sharks, snorkeling, beachcombing and watching turtles coming to shore to lay their eggs at night. Only critique about property is could be helpful to have washer/dryer though we survived handwashing necessities during week and were told that sending wash out would be very inexpensive.
