After a day of playing in the sun, it is only a short half block walk down the to the best nightspots on isla mujeres. The pedestrian only quaint cobblestone hildago avenue is lined with great shopping and virtually unlimited dining options with more than 50 restaurants to suite all tastes. Options include everything from authentic mexican cuisine to fine dining. After a great meal enjoy the multiple live music options and dance the night away.

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 the condo in 2012 with a friend who was also convinced to purchase with me after being on the island only two days. We are relatively new owners but will work very hard to ensure your experience at Ixchel will be one you will never forget.

Randy Fossum purchased this condo in 2012

Why Randy Fossum chose Isla Mujeres

Isla Mujeres was ranked in as the 6th best island in the world and Ixchel is located on Norte Beach which was ranked as the 14th best beach in the world as ranked in 2013.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is on the highest floor and closest to the ocean of any of the Ocean View units at Ixchel Phase 1. The view from the balcony and master bedroom cannot be beat.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our second trip to Isla was better than the first trip last year.



A new discover was Maria’s Kankin toward the south point of the island. The sunset there was spectacular and worth the cab ride.



We hope to be back next year.

Love Ixchel

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Isla and at Ixchel. The property is well maintained and the staff are great and did I mention that Randy is great to work with also. 407/408 had everything that we needed for our 10 day stay. The view from the balcony is beyond beautiful- we have been to Isla many times and this is definitely a place were we will stay again. Thanks Randy for sharing your awesome condo with us and we can't wait to return!!

Surpassed our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I have stayed in other suites at Ixchel so we already had high expectations (we love this hotel), but this property (408) had everything we needed and more! Just the small details of having a cooler for the beach, a large coffee pot, extra books, movies etc made this property surpass our expectations. Thankfully we had terrific weather (you can watch the sunset from the balcony) so didn't have much of a need to stay indoors, but if the weather wasn't on our side, we would have been comfortable in our suite. Randy was terrific to work with, very responsive and made himself available in the event we needed anything (which we didn't). I would definitely recommend this suite and I would stay here again!

I just finished a 1 week stay in 407-408 with my wife and 3 adult children and definitely hope to return. The property is very well maintained and the staff are helpful and pleasant to work with. The apartment had everything we needed. The king bed in the master is the most comfortable bed I have every slept on anywhere in Mexico. The twin beds in the 2nd bedroom also were very comfortable. My son slept ok on the sectional in the living room. The kitchen has everything needed for simple meals. The balcony is a great place to hang out both during the day and evenings and had an amazing view. The beach on playa Norte is hard to beat. Randy was great to work with. We definitely hope to stay there again. Thanks!

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just spent 10 wonderful nights in rooms 407-408 of Building I. This is a two bedroom apartment (1 king bedroom, double queen bedroom, living room+kitchen) with balcony overlooking the ocean and pools. It is extremely clean and comfortable, and was perfect for our family. The rate includes daily housekeeping. You can rent it from the hotel itself or from the owner Randy Possum (612-964-3104 or www.ixchelvacation.com). Randy is a pleasure to deal with.

The hotel is situated on the most beautiful beach on the island, and is a five minute walk from very good restaurants and cafes. As soon as you check in meet with the Concierge Mauricio (request him) to receive an island overview. He has excellent taste. The daily rate entitles you to beach lounge chairs and umbrellas. Virginio will set up your umbrellas and chairs with amazing care. He has an terribly grueling job, but I have never seen anybody showing more pride in his work. The pool was pretty, but we much preferred the beach.

The hotel has a spa, but I recommend the massage services hidden behind the palapa snack bar off to the left (when you walk our of the hotel). With a very generous tip, an hour massage costed 700 pesos = $37.

My only issue with the hotel was the (free) wifi speed. At times it was unusably slow. This is a hotel problem and not a problem with these specific rooms.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from 10 day stay in Isla and staying at Randy's condo at Ixchel Beach Hotel. It was perfect for our family. Brother and Sister In-Law in Master and self, wife and 2 girls stayed in the other room. It's a perfect location, the amenities are perfect and the condo has everything you need including the cooler! LOL!! We cooked in several meals including an awesome dinner where I went to fishing coop and got a large snapper had it filleted and cooked it on Randy's grill. It's perfect for families, couples old and young!!! The group vote come next year for two weeks!!!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family (wife and 3 young boys) just returned from 5 days in Isla. We rented these apartments from Randy and could not have been more pleased! The location on the beach is perfect and the resort did not disappoint in terms of cleanliness, quality of poolside food and drink, friendliness and responsiveness of staff, etc. Randy's apartments were also ideal for our family of 5 with the boys sharing a room and my wife and I in a second bedroom (separated by a living room and kitchen), and we also each had our own separate bathrooms. So the kids could watch tv in their bedroom (there also is a good selection of DVDs), while my wife and I could lounge and enjoy the sound of the surf from our bedroom or out on the large balcony. We also really enjoyed exploring the town, which is just a short walk from Ixchel and is filled with stores and good restaurants. While still somewhat touristy, Isla is a good place to give kids a feel for authentic Mexican life instead of the sterile environment found at many Mexican all-inclusive resorts (which we also did for several days on this trip and is fun in its own way). Finally, Randy is very responsive and bends over backward to help out. I recommend taking his advice when it comes to restaurant suggestions, transport to/from airport, etc.
