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 Laguna Beach

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.

Beautiful home, great location!!!

  • 5 of 5

Spent the third week of August 2017 in this lovely home in North Laguna with our family of six. The home was very comfortable for our large family and really allowed for a restful vacation week. We had a car rental and could have ditched it since we walked everywhere (or took the trolley). About a 5min walk from Crescent Beach which is spectacular. The walk into town (along Cliff) took us about 10min and the views from Heisler Park along that route were so magnificent that we typically skipped the trolley. The home itself was well equipped, well maintained, with updated kitchen and bathrooms and we enjoyed the upper deck with ocean views every evening. Beds were very comfortable. My only gripe (and it is a small one) is the Internet connection is less than awesome. Ordinarily wouldn't have even noticed this minor inconvenience but my kids had managed to churn through our family data plan before vacation started and we were essentially dependent on this slow connection to manage our flight reservations etc....That being said, we came to Laguna to surf the ocean not the Internet and we would love to come back to this beautiful villa. Travel tip; if arriving by air try to fly into John Wayne (Orange County) and skip LAX or San Diego. Airport is only 20min away and incredibly user friendly (no lines).

Ocean view home in a great location!

  • 4 of 5

Had a wonderful time at this very cute house! Updated home with a great kitchen, family room and ocean view! Beautiful tile and wood floors. Really appreciate the beach chairs, beach umbrellas and beach towels that come with the house. The only thing missing is a comfy chair on the first floor for reading or morning coffee. Once the kids take over the family room, a secondary comfy seating area in the master would be great. Overall great experience!

Great location in a renovated beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location of this cottage. Close to a great beach and short drive to town. Most of the cottage has been renovated but can still see the original cottage charm. Very well equipped, plenty of towels, linens and kitchen-ware and with the heat wave we had the air-conditioning was awesome.

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!
