About Todd Murray

This home is owned and has been restored by a 20 year Los Angeles resident. Originally from the East Coast, I came to LA to enjoy its freedoms, creativity, and opportunity. I am the second owner of this house originally built in 1954, and restoring it was a true labor of love. I am a business man as well as a professional singer.

Todd Murray purchased this house in 2008

Why Todd Murray chose Los Angeles

This house is feels somewhat like a vacation home in Palm Springs, open and modern...but yet it is in a lovely residential area of LA, walking distance to awesome eateries, safe and old Hollywood elegance. MAKE SURE YOU CLICK ON THE LINK FOR THE INTERACTIVE VIRTUAL TOUR...YOU FEEL EXACTLY LIKE YOU ARE STANDING IN THE HOME. Freeways minutes away, Downtown 20 minutes away, and you can walk to a concert at the Greek Theater.

What makes this house unique

2 outdoor seating areas, , sweet pool that can be heated easily, with water wall that can be heard through the house. Open floor plan so fun for gatherings. Feels like vacation everyday.

Wonderful vacation property

  • 5 of 5
This house is contemporary,comfortable and easy to live in. It is a great location, we could walk up to the wilderness of Grffith Park and down to Los Feliz grocery store, resturants and coffe shops. It is also only 25 minutes on 3rd street to get to The Grove etc. we loved the fact that we could walk to the Greek theatre and had two great nights there.

The house was great for our family perfectly with 3 couples and one toddler. We enjoyed late afternoons around the pool. Todd was very helpful from the time we booked, meeting us on arrival, and staying in contact, it was good to have the opportunity to have Grace come to clean after our first week. We highly recommend this property, and would choose it again for our visits to LA. Thank you Todd

Top Notch Vacation Rental Home

  • 5 of 5
This home is a great find, stylish, contemporary and comfortable. The kitchen had high end appliances and was well equipped with quality items. Our family loved the fact that you could open the sliding doors and enjoy the indoor and outdoors at the same time, benefiting from the great California climate. A great location for enjoying the attractions and we loved the vigorous walk up to the Griffin Observatory and enjoyed seeing the terrific views both day and night of LA and looking through the telescopes at the planets. It suited our family perfectly which included a 15 year old teenager and an 86 year old Grandma. Plenty of space for all of us to come home to and relax and grill out after a busy day sight seeing. Todd was very welcoming and helpful and we appreciated all his advise along with his quick help on sending out someone to help us with the DVD player. We highly recommend this rental home and very much appreciate Todd's immediate return of our security deposit. We would not hesitate on going back to his house again. We had a fantastic time and experience, thanks Todd!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much Jason! I am the second owner of this home built in the early 50's and I personally designed and renovated the house to feel open, full of light, and relaxing, in short, to feel like everyday is vacation. Thanks for taking the time to write. There is no better reward than to know you fully enjoyed my home. And yes, the Miele coffee station rocks doesn't it?! Cheers.

Sports Illustrated Shoot

  • 5 of 5
We traveled from Australia to photograph one the world famous Sports Illustrated models. We were greeted by the owner, whom is incredibly generous and welcoming. We quickly felt like we were at home and the jet lag had disappeared quickly because of our surroundings. The walks around the the neighborhood are the best in LA without doubt. The coffee shops, and the restaurants are only 2 blocks from 'home', as we said.

The property is in pristine condition and extremely comfortable. It has warm and welcoming feel to it, and you will be sad when it is time for you to leave it.

I couldn't recommend this property high enough. From the condition of the property, the functioning of all appliances to the owner. The property is exactly how it is represented in the photo's so rest assure if you do book Todd's property what you see is what you get.

Look after it, because we will stay there again. Thanks Todd!
