About Judy Chaikin

I am a documentary film director residing in Los Angeles California where I grew up. I attended Roosevelt High School, LA City College and The American Film Institute - AFI.

Judy Chaikin purchased this condo in 1997

Why Judy Chaikin chose Baja California Sur

My husband and I visited Los Cabos in 1991 and we were so enchanted by the area that we purchased our personal condo on that first weekend. We soon realized that as Cabo began to develop, builders were no longer doing low density projects, only major hotels. We knew we had bought a little gem. As our family grew we purchased Ballena #204 in 1997 as a second unit for our visiting children and friends. We keep it in beautiful condition and rent it out when not in use by the family.

What makes this condo unique

As you enter the private gates the artistry of the landscaping is immediately apparent and the low density means you have the kind of relaxed privacy that immediately soothes your soul. It's the kind of getaway that we all need...with enough activity to keep you fit and some of the finest restaurants in the world to keep you well fed.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It's such a pleasure to have wonderful people stay at our condo and give it the same kind of loving care that we do. Please do come back and see us again.

Wonderful!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a good time at Casa del Mar. All kinds of maps, suggestions, meal recommendations were provided for us. The neighbors were very friendly inviting us over for drinks and fresh caught fish dinners. We rode the bus to and from Cabo and San Jose and did quite well. The condo was very quite and the grounds and flowers were just beautiful. This one is a "keeper"!! Judy was very helpful and organized - we were very appreciative.

Amazing location and property grounds, excellent value

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo for a week in January and were very impressed with the grounds and the general upkeep of the entire exterior of the property, right down to the updated elevators. The location near San Jose del Cabo is truly perfect, far enough away to b calm and peaceful, yet close enough to be convenient to art galleries and restaurants (unless you never leave the resort you will want a rental car here). The beach was easily accessible and walking the beach was a highlight of the trip. The saltwater pools were a welcome surprise and the station for rinsing sand from your feet at the beach entrance was very helpful. We ate at the beach club restaurant once, it was decent, but way overpriced, despite the excellent view. The condo itself was fine, plenty big for two people, and the shower had great water pressure. The towels were nice and the supplied beach towels were awesome. Judy also gave us a great deal of information to help make our stay wonderful. The condo was likely built in the 90s and had little or no updating, but I believe that is what makes this place such an excellent value (yo'd be paying much more for updates). It is important to be aware that you cannot hear the ocean from the condo (a negative or positive depending on your preference) and you can hear the highway from the condo, so there was traffic noise on the patio most of the time instead of ocean waves hitting the shore. I would still definitely stay here again given the value this unit offers in this prime location and at such a beautiful property.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review Eric. The new highway is now open further inland and no big trucks are allowed on the hotel road. As a result the offending traffic sounds are gone. You must have been there during low tide because we usually hear the waves crashing on the shore. It's one of our favorite things about being so close to the ocean.

Time to relax

  • 5 of 5

My Wife & I stayed at Judy's place a week or so ago and it was just what we needed......peaceful. Everything you need is inside and outside there is a world of sun, heated pool, and an almost deserted beach. Just simply nice and peaceful. Closeby are great places to visit, eat or be by yourselves to relax. Best with a vehicle of course (reserve online and take the liability insurance, don't let them sell you a 50 per day insurance package. UGH). Unless you are looking for a big party atmosphere, this home will be all you need. Two queen beds in one room so be family or really good friends if you are sharing the bedroom. Perfect for a couple or couple with younger kids... there is a kid pool, grass area etc. Just go.........enjoy. A can't miss place to stay. Rick & Luz from Mexicali & San Diego

Had a wonderful stay. Perfect location!!

  • 5 of 5

Was looking on vrbo today for a new vacation rental and realized that I never left a review for my last stay at this great place. Sorry Judy :-( Anyway, we had an amazing time! The complex was very quiet and we literally had the entire pool area to ourselves most of the time (so for those who prefer a lively environment, this may not be the place for you). For us though, it was perfect as we were seeking a nice, relaxing vacation. It is located in between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo (which are basically polar opposite experiences.....Cabo for a spring break-type atmosphere and San Jose for a more authentic, cultural atmosphere), so a rental car is highly recommended so you can do things on your own time. It worked out well for us as we spent time equally in both cities over the course of our week-long stay. The driving took a little to get used to as everyone seemed to be either going way too slow or unbelievably fast. But, once I got the hang of it, I had an absolute blast driving around! Judy was awesome to communicate with before and during our trip. She made sure to answer all the questions we had and she provided a great informational pamphlet with recommendations and tips for anything you may want to do during your trip. The condo itself was very nice and we had no complaints whatsoever with regard to our stay. The beach is basically connected to the property and even though the waters aren't swimmable in this immediate area, we still spent a significant amount of time walking along the beach and taking pictures. Great places to eat, shop, party and sightsee all within a short drive of the condo! If we decide to return to Cabo (pretty likely), we'll definitely be staying here again. Thanks for everything Judy!!

Lovely Condo! Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

There were three adults in my group who stayed at Casa Del for 8 days. It was the perfect amount of space for us. We had a wonderful time. The owner was helpful, quick to answer any questions. We were looking for both relaxation & wanted to explore the area. Staying at the condo, we were able to fulfill both. We rented a car to take trips to Todos Los Santos, San Jose Del Cabo and several beaches. Buses go to these areas also. We also spent time, relaxing at the pool & beach at Casa Del Mar. The complex is quiet & the ocean view from the condo is beautiful! We went next door to the Hilton for a special dinner & received the discount offered to those staying at Casa Del Mar. Having a kitchen at the condo was a big plus. We had some great easy meals at the condo, with an amazing ocean view in the backdrop. We had great meals out too. We had the best time. A stay at Casa De Mar Condo provides beautiful ocean views, an inviting comfortable condo, relaxation away from crowds & a wonderful helpful owner. We would definitely go back.
