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.

I am a two time Emmy Nominee and my passion is rose gardening. I love to make things beautiful and comfortable and that's what I hope you will find in Ballena 204

Judy Chaikin purchased this condo in 1997

Why Judy Chaikin chose San José del Cabo

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 instantly 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. Sharing the 33 acre property with the boutique Casa del Mar Hotel, provides us with all the benefits of a restaurant, bar, gym and concierge yet allows us to live with a kind of homey lifestyle not available in a hotel.

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.

  • 5 of 5

Casa Del Mar is a beautiful complex, the condo has a magnificent view of the pool and ocean. The room was just right for me and my wife. We had a great time and would recommend this condo if you're looking for a quiet relaxing vacation.

Nice super safe location on the Corridor with wonderful views

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying and would stay again. We did have an issue, which Judy took care of immediately and that was appreciated. The complex is clean and safe, and an easy drive to either Cabo San Lucas or Cabo San Jose.

loved it but similar to camping!

  • 4 of 5

Great location, wonderful beach. Reasonably priced, Beautiful and quiet. Judy is very attentive and responds quickly. But....

The condo ( and porch) is very very small and dated. No oven, grill, dishwasher, a small microwave and barely a refrigerator. ( so it is almost like camping).

I realize now that these things were revealed in the description but my expectations were different after viewing the online pictures.

A beautiful, quiet and relaxing property located on the beach in the hotel zone between Los Cabos and San Jose. Rent a car or take the bus (bus stop right next to Casa del Mar) to either Los Cabos or San Jose.

Come back to the pool and hot tub to relax at Casa del Mar.

Spacious condo with small kitchen area and an incredible view of the Pacific from the balcony.

Judy is a wonderful host and extremely helpful.

Will Visit again

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed out stay at Casa del Mar. The property itself was beautiful. Loved being so close to the ocean...could see whales and the jumping manta rays! We especially appreciated the quietness of the resort and no need to run out and save a spot by the pool or beach! Our condo was great although we spent time with our friends in another condo because it was a little larger for playing cards. We also would look for one with washer & dryer next time, but it worked out great for our first time at the resort.

Owner's Response: Hi Ralph and Cindy, So glad you appreciated all the great things Casa del Mar has to offer. If you need a larger place next time I also have a two bedroom condo on VRBO #994144. It has a washer and dryer and barbecue.

You can whale watch from the balcony, witness baby sea turtles hatching on the beach, or go horseback riding on the sand. Minutes by car from all the major attractions in both Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo, including world class golf courses and deep sea fishing, surfing, SUP, jetskis, ATVs, whale watching, ecotours, glass bottom boat rides, zip-lines, para-sailing, kayaking, bird watching, and fantastic snorkeling in nearby Chileno Bay and Santa Maria Bay. Exciting culinary scene featuring local seafood and organic produce, plus tons of fantastic taco stands. Cabo San Lucas is known for the famous 'Land's End' arch, fun bars on the beach and a wild nightclub scene while San Jose del Cabo is known for art galleries and a more relaxed atmosphere.
