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.

The Pacific Ocean and the Sierra de la Laguna from your morning coffee spot!!!
Mark is a wonderful host and his home is beautiful with views that cannot be beat. We woke every morning to have coffee and take in the view. A great spot to do YOGA, or just watch whales travel by, listen to the waves crash or take in the Sierra's (One of my favorites) this is the perfect spot. The house is beautiful comfortable and clean and has what you need for a great stay. We love the location as you are out of town so its peaceful, yet just a short drive to restaurants, coffee shops, shopping...
We will definitely be back. Thanks Mark.
John and Gail Harkness
John and Gail are the nicest guests anyone can ask for! They took exceptional care of the property and very very nice people. I would have them back in a heartbeat! Thank you.
What a beautiful place! We enjoyed the sparkling clean and comfortable accommodations, very helpful host and beautiful beach complete with whales. Will definitely plan to return.
Best view in town. On the beach!
There is no place in Todos Santos with a better view than the Whale View Inn. Clean, spacious accommodations. Huge patio right off the 2nd floor bedroom that affords a spectacular view of the ocean for 180 degrees. Whales going by every ten minutes. 100 yards to the beach. 5 minute drive to town. Helpful owner on site. We'll be back.
Comfortable quiet beachfront
Spacious covered and uncovered decking and frequent whale sightings. One block from turtle hatching release location. Good restaurants in town and nearer to the unit. The unit is comfortable and clean with good wifi. Mark the host is available, informative but not intrusive.
Great Couples Getaway
My wife and I just got back from a great stay at Mark's Whale View Inn. We only stayed there 3 nights/ 4 days but we wish we stayed there much longer. The house was very comfortable and the views were spectacular. I spent every morning fishing with Mark off of the beach where I hooked 2 rooster fish due to Mark's great advice. While I fished my wife would take a nice walk along the beach where the sand was perfect and the crowds were minimal (i.e. maybe 1-2 other people on the entire beach). In the afternoon my wife and I would hang out on the porch and soak in the beautiful views with maybe a siesta and cold beer. Then in the evenings we would watch the sunset from the porch followed by a great dinner from one of the many options in Todos Santos.
I highly recommend staying at the Whale View Inn. Especially if you like spectacular views, fun fishing, great food, nice walks on the beach, and comfortable accommodations.
A Week In Paradise
My husband and I just returned from a week in Mark's wonderful rental. The space is beautifully appointed, with a sparkling kitchen, a spacious bathroom, and a cozy living area. But the most spectacular aspect of the property is the spacious deck overlooking an ocean that is just steps away. We spent countless hours on that deck reading, listening to the waves, and looking for sea life through our binoculars. We saw fish leaping into the air, a school of dolphins surfing in the waves, and witnessed baby sea turtle releases just down the beach from the property. We were lulled to sleep nightly by the sound of the crashing waves. The kitchen gave us many dining options, and we shopped locally for fresh produce, home-made tortillas, and smoked fish, for creating simple meals at home. Mark gave us wonderful suggestions for dining in town, though, and every meal was better than the next. Mark is an avid fisherman, and he gave my husband some valuable insights into the fishing protocol of the area. One night Mark even graciously shared with us a meal of some freshly caught fish that he grilled beautifully. He gave us some spot-on directions to a couple of destinations that we wanted to hit on our way back to the Cabo airport, which saved us from our usual fate of getting massively lost. All I can say about our stay in this beautiful property is "Dios Mio, que perfecto!". We will be returning, and the sooner, the better!
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.
