About Mark Grivas

Born and raised in New York City and have always had an affinity for the sea. My ancestors and modern family hail from the island of Ithica, Greece perhaps explaining my love for the sea and seafood (and lamb). I caught my first fish when I was 5 years old and it's more like I was the one who got hooked that day. In 2004, my wife and I took our first trip to Cabo to go fishing and once again I got hooked only this time it was on this beautiful area. I purchased my first lot in Cabo only later to discover Todos Santos where my dream of living on the waterfront came true.

I worked most of my life in sales selling everything from flower seeds, foods and food services, steel, plastic, paper and advertising space. In my latest years worked as a vessel assist captain on the east end of Long Island assisting vessels in distress.

I attended Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, CA. for 2 years, lived in Osaka, Japan for 2 years then moved to SF and the Bay area for 4 years and L.A. for 10 years. Spent 8 years in Fort Lee, NJ and the last 11 years I've lived in the Hamptons of NY.

Mark Grivas purchased this villa in 2012

Why Mark Grivas chose Todos Santos

After my first visit to Cabo, I became very interested in the area. I was back the following year to buy something. I was really looking for a condo but the deals kept slipping through my fingers and Real Estate was red hot then. I eventually settled for a lot on the corridor but I wasn't satisfied. Still looking for a condo or house in Cabo without success my broker invited me to look at some lots in Todos Santos. He showed me a beachfront lot with, wouldn't you know it, a bait ball working its way down the beach....hooked again!! After making plays for no less than 4 other lots, that fell through, I finally closed on this lot sight-unseen and built this fabulous house.

What makes this villa unique

The beautiful blue Pacific and sea breezes. Not too hot in the summer and more importantly not cold in the winter. Perhaps the most ideal climate on earth. Walk out your door and catch fish! The La Pastora surf break is a stones throw away and can be seen from here.

Celebrating 30th Wedding Anniversary

  • 5 of 5
Todos Santos is one of our favorite destinations for vacation and this year we were looking for something special to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. We found it at the Whale View Inn. The location is right on the dunes overlooking the beach. It was quiet and secluded, exactly what we were hoping for. We were able to sit out on the patio at night and enjoy the clear skies and stars and watch the surf during the day. Experienced one tropical storm (Hurricane Marie) which produced massive waves and lightning....very dramatic.

The home was comfortable and included all the ammenities we needed for a 2 week stay. Mark, our host was extremely helpful and made sure our stay was memorable. Things can go wrong on vacation and its nice to have someone that can assist. When our rental car broke down, Mark gave us a ride into Todos Santos. When my wife had a spider bite, Mark told us where to get help (20 pesos for a doctor's visit at St Jude's Clinic....less than our co-pay in the states!). He even invited us to join him for an authentic Greek dinner that he prepared.

All in all it was a great stay.....wonderful location, comfortable accomodations and an excellent host. I'd recommend to anyone

Absolutely blissful

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just spent 9 glorious days at the Whale View Inn. At the end of our stay, we simply did not want to leave. Every morning, we would enjoy a leisurely breakfast on the covered veranda off our bedroom and would feast our eyes on the incredible views of the beach and mountains. We'd force ourselves off the veranda and head to Los Cerritos for lunch, surf and then have a massage right on the beach. After dinner in Todos Santos (our favorite restaurant was Los Adobes), we'd head back to watch the gorgeous sunset from our veranda. It was absolutely blissful. Mark, the owner, was always there when we needed anything and gave us great recommendations for restaurants, beaches and shopping. The accommodations were immaculate and we always felt very secure and safe. We can't wait to return.

Incredible Private Ocean front Casita with Spectacular views

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at the Whale View Inn was beyond our expectations. We entered into an amazing gourmet kitchen with a gas stove we could not wait to use. From there we were brought into a romantic bedroom/sitting room with a balcony that surpassed any photo or review that brought us here in the first place. The bathroom was spacious and the entire space was very clean. Our host, Mark, was informative and friendly, guiding us to great spots and must sees in Todos Santos. A boat can be easily arranged for a fishing excursion through Mark, and the whale watching was so fun. We spent many hours walking the beach, watching sunsets from the balcony, and cooking fun meals. There are great restaurants if you don't feel like cooking. I loved practicing yoga on the spacious balcony. You look to the left and right and see amazing view, with nobody in sight, the privacy made this an incredibly romantic spot. It was hard to leave and we will be back on our next visit.

Perfect for Two!

  • 5 of 5
Mark keeps a tidy place with incredible views. My husband and I found it to be perfect for the two of us. You fall asleep to the sound of the ocean and wake up to it too. Great light throughout. Hot water was consistent and you have a nice array of kitchen utensils and cookware to use during your stay.

Mark is a gracious host, always there when needed and great to talk to.

This place is clean, well laid out, and the furnishings are of good quality. The views are incredible. If you stay here, please make sure you do your part to continue taking care of this place by treating it with care and respect. We'd love to return soon and find it just the same!

Whale View Inn is an apt name

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time here. As HG mentioned, it was as though the whales were putting on a show just for us. More than once, we saw a whale breach more than a dozen times. They are very close to shore, so binoculars would be nice to remember, but aren't even necessary. This is a great casita for a couple. The kitchen is well-appointed, nice bath area, breezy light filled bed/living area, huge deck. Buy food at the local grocery and settle in!

The best place in Todos Santos to watch the Whales. We felt the whales were putting a show just for us since nobody else was on the beach. If you are looking for a quite retreat, beautiful beach and an affordable price, this is the place for you.

Located on the Pacific coast 45 miles north of Cabo San Lucas. Many people come to Todos Santos (Pueblo Magico) for surfing, the art galleries, fine dining, the wonderful climate and beauty but, for me it is the fishing. Whether from the beach or panga, Todos Santos is also a fishing village with some very good fishing. Fishing charters available from boat or beach.
