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.

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.

Perfect location & a wonderful home.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in July 2015 & the house was a perfect location in Laguna Beach. Close enough to walk into town & to the beach, yet quiet enough to relax in the evening. The hosts, Jim & his wife, were very communicative throughout our reservation process & even stayed to welcome us on our arrival day! The absolute best thing about this house is the upstairs den & deck. We ate most of our meals outside & it was so relaxing. It was sad to leave such a lovely place & we would definitely stay here on our next vacation to Laguna!

Second stay just as perfect as the first!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this home so much during our March 2014 stay that we returned to it in March 2015. We love the house and its location. We walk to Crescent Bay Beach (our favorite beach in Laguna) and walk to downtown. The home is very comfortable and has everything we need to relax and feel like locals. We eat most of our meals on the deck. Our kids appreciate the TVs and surround sound. The owner and the property manager are excellent with communication and genuinely care about the experience of the guests. We will return again. This is our "home away from home."
