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

Fab home for a fantastic stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful location and home! Lots of restaurants around and numerous ways to avoid the freeway. The home was fantastic, the pool was amazing and we enjoyed every minute of our stay! We were saved from a disastrous Air B N B home the day before our travel and I am sure it was fate for us to find this location which was perfect for my family. We will be back! Not only was our vacation saved, but this house made it amazing!!

You'll Love the Pool!

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed staying at the Los Feliz property recently. All was great! The home is perfectly set up for entertaining, is very comfortable, and attractive. When one can soak in the warm water, hold a glass of wine, and watch tv at the same time, life is good... The kitchen is stocked well, and has beautiful high-end appliances. The house was very clean and contemporary. I would certainly recommend this property.

We were in LA to visit family and our annual family vacation. Todd actually saved me because the house we rented had maintenance issues and they canceled our reservation 1 week before we were to leave. But it ended up being a blessing because this house was awesome. We loved that it was so close to Griffith Park and all of the fabulous site seeing. I would highly recommend this home.

Paradise in Los Feliz

  • 5 of 5

My family had a fabulous time staying at Todd's beautiful home. It has been totally redone & everything is nice and modern. The folding walls opening the house up to the beautiful pool & waterfall provided the perfect way to enjoy California. We did not want to leave. It is very accessible to lots of fun restaurants & things to do. We highly recommend it!
