About James Ratkovich

Our family has roots in Laguna Beach and our children grew up on it's beautiful beaches. We love to travel and spend time as a family together.

James Ratkovich purchased this house in 2010

Why James Ratkovich chose Orange County

We have always wanted to own a home in North Laguna Beach. It has specttacular beaches with world class diving, which we love. It is also much easier to get to than South Laguna, especially in the summer, which saves us time coming and going.

Our second stay in this fabulous house by the beach

  • 5 of 5

We love coming back to stay at this lovely house. It has a great location a few minutes' walk to Crescent Bay, it is right by the stop for the local free shuttle into town, it is a few blocks from the supermarket, and it has every comfort and convenience. The bedrooms are large, the kitchen is well equipped, there's a TV for everyone's convenience, and the deck on the upper floor is just wonderful for sitting out in the evenings. Great customer service from owner and local caretaker. Our family thinks of this as our "home" in southern California! Thank you for another wonderful summer holiday.

This property had everything we could ask for and more!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at this property in North Laguna and it was perfect for our family of four (two adults and two teenaged boys)! We enjoyed the location and had access to everything we wanted to do. It was an easy walk down to the beach and we really enjoyed walking up the street to the trailhead for our daily trail runs. We also utilized the free trolley to get downtown to some restaurants.

The house had plenty of room to spread out with the upstairs living room and outdoor patio. It was very clean and ready for us when we checked in! The kitchen was perfect! We stocked up on breakfast and lunch foods and then headed out to different local restaurants for dinners. The grocery store is only a few blocks away. The house had everything we needed and with everyday workouts, having the washer/dryer was perfect for us!

It was also nice having beach chairs, bogey boards, and towels for the beach! The area felt very safe and the house manager was easy to reach, helpful, and nice!

We fell in love with Laguna Beach! We would definitely come again and recommend this property to friends!

Great home for a wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home for our Christmas vacation 2015. This was our first time renting a vacation home for our family. It was a great experience. Jim and Mary were great to deal with and made the process very easy. The home met all of our needs. It allowed our family to spread out with our two boys taking the twin beds on the main level and our daughter had the upper level to herself with the pull out bed which worked great. The master bedroom is a nice size and has a nice on-suite bathroom. The location is good just off PCH and walking distance to the beach. Laguna is great and this location works very well. I would clearly recommend this for a great family vacation.

Wonderful location; Great accomodations

  • 5 of 5

This home was one of three that we rented for a week-long family reunion. Two couples and two children stayed in this house and it worked great. The kids were on the second floor and the adults were on the first floor with two big bedrooms and bathrooms. The first level kitchen had everything we needed for a large family dinner one night. The property manager was very helpful. The local Laguna Beach summer trolley was a great hit with everyone. It stops just a couple of blocks from this house.
