About Richard Hessen

I am a retired American after working for the last 25 years in Mexico as the manager of a large American manufacturing plant employing over 600 people.

Richard Hessen purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Richard Hessen chose Mahahual

I have always dreamed and planned of retiring to the beach and enjoying the Carribean and my hobby,fishing.

I researched and visited Panama, Costa Rica, Jamaica, Dominican Republic and both coasts of Mexico before deciding on Mahahual.

I finished building this property in 2006 and moved to Mahahual the same day as I retired. I just love it when a good plan comes togather.

What makes this apartment unique

No coats, no jackets, no Winter clothing. No heating bills, no shovelling snow, no traffic jams or pollution. The sun shines 90% of the days and temp never rises above 90% or below 70%. Nature in unparalled with many species of birds aquatic mamuals and fish. Sunrise and sunset is always a beautiful experience.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two weeks and it was perfect! Richard and Rosa went out of their way to be helpful and give us restaurant tips, share a yoga class, and even book a massage for us. The rooftop lanai is the most relaxing place in town: read, relax, people-watch, sleep, or just enjoy the surf. The apartment was comfortable, clean, and centrally located. Great restaurants are within a couple of minutes walk in either direction. Would love to stay there again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great review. It was our pleasure to have you and David as our guests and we miss your stories of your diving adventures . You are the ideal travellers taking advantage of all the área has to offer, from a trip to Bacalar to the ruins and countless diving adventures, a diving trip to BancoChinchuro, to the relaxing 1 hour massages on the terraza to exploring the tastes of Mexico at the various restaurants in the área. Next visit we will take the time to get in some fishing for David. Regards, Richard and Rosa

Mahahual

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful week in Mahahual. Richard's apartment is clean, conveniently located and beautifully furnished. The only drawback is that this bit of paradise is not located close to shopping so, if you plan to cook some of your meals, it would be wise to bring food. There are small groceries to purchase fruit and some basics.

Richard and Rosa are great hosts and eager to offer advice and recomendation

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great review. We are committed to make our guests´ vacation special and enjoyable. There are many activides available here in Mahahual and in the immediate área and we enjoy assisting our guests. Mahahual is still a small town not yet destroyed by commercialization and most owners of small businesses still give personalized attention and are proud to show off their beautiful little Paradise. The majority of our guests have returned 2 ,3 and 4 times and we welcome them as friends. We hope you include Mahahual in your vacation plans next year and we stand ready to welcome you with more options to ensure your vacation special. Richard and Rosa

nice safe place right in town

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 5 nights at this apartment over New Year's with our sons, 13, and 9. It was so nice to have a bit more space to spread out, and the rooftop area was great to watch the action. The place is very secure with multiple locks and we felt very safe leaving our kids there for an hour or two if they wanted a break from running around. The owners were home or working in their store down below all the time, so that was comforting. The apartment is also very quiet - I think it must have updated windows - so even on NYE we had no noise issues. Conveniently located. We didn't do any cooking but we did buy roast chicken from a place across the street and used all the kitchen stuff to serve and eat it. Recommended!

Loving the Heart of Mahahual

  • 5 of 5

Stayed 3 nights in Feb 2015 (3 adults, 2 children). This apartment was spotless, nicely furnished and well-equipped and a perfect home base for our time in Mahahual. Richard made sure we had everything we needed and was accessible for any questions or needs during our stay.

We chose this property over some other VRBO properties because we wanted to be within walking distance of the malecon and restaurants (instead of renting south of town and having to drive back to town for meals). For our party of 5 we would have needed 2 hotel rooms and this rental gave us more space, free wifi and a kitchen/dining table where we comfortably prepared and ate breakfast.

You are literally 20 steps to the beach where there are tonnes of choices for beach restaurants, loungers, margaritas. We enjoyed the great beach/ocean view from the rooftop patio several times: coffee at sunrise, catching some shade after a day at the beach, quiet reading or watching the ships come and go. Looking out the other side of the rooftop patio, you could watch over the main street even had a perfect view of a nighttime soccer game at the adjacent soccerfield behind the apartment.

The building had lots of screened windows to catch the breeze and more air conditioning than you could require. It's a safe town, but Richard's building has extra locks / security to make even the nervous traveler feel 100% secure.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great review. Being a world traveller I understand that is important for our guests to feel comfortable, safe and catch the flavor of Mexico with its vibrant colors,culture and history. We have the most spectular views of the sunrise and sunset on the terraza with the cruise ships passing only a half mile away, and its true that we are centrally located to restaurants,shopping or just lounging on the beach. You can truely ´park it and forget it´unless you plan to visit Bacalar or the ruins. We hope you had a safe trip home and hope you include us in your vacation plans in the future. Regards, Richard and Rosa

Totally Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Majahual and we really enjoyed the accomodations. Richard and Rosa made sure everything was comfortable. They are really nice people and are now friends of ours. I can't say enough about the unit. It was clean, comfortable and spacious. The patio above the building was great and the views were amazing. Majahual is very quiet and quaint. It gets a little busy when the ships come in but it makes for great people watching. The people here are very friendly and you get to know them. There are numerous Dive shops.
