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

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We came with two small children and had a wonderful time. The house is so comfortable and pretty, the neighbourhood is wonderful and walkable, and it's so close to Griffiths Park. The pool is also ideal for kids, with a ledge for less confident swimmers to perch on. Every bedroom is as nice as the next, the ensuites are terrific and the kitchen is great and easy to use. Every time we wanted something it was already there - everything had been thought of.

Just a great place to stay. We didn't want to leave.

Los Feliz House

  • 5 of 5

The house was exceptional. The layout is great for families to relax, swim, eat and even enjoy chess by the fireplace at night. Each bedroom has its own bathroom which for us with kids was awesome. The house had everything we needed to enjoy the So Cal lifestyle, and was very clean as well as organized and had a well thought out floorpan. Both the owner and the property manager were available and accommodated our request to heat the pool very quickly. All the restaurants recommended were spot on and the nearby hiking was great. We will definetly be staying here again.

Best time of my life

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely amazing! So many good things to say about this house. The bathrooms were so enjoyable and soothing and there was plenty of room for me and my girlfriends! The pool area was the best part for me especially at night when you can just have the doors open from the living room to the pool and some music playing on the speakers and the waterfall in the background! I absolutely loved it here! Todd was so patient and kind to me! I will definitely stay here again! Thank you so much!

Madmen House left us Happy!

  • 5 of 5

We give the Madmen House a full five stars. The owner, Todd, was terrific! He met us at the house and gave us a full tour. He was warm, welcoming and instantly made us feel at home. The house exceeded our expectations. It is modern, clean, well stocked, and perfectly set up for a relaxing "California" vacation. The three bedrooms with three full baths gives everyone a private space and the accordion doors create an amazing in-door, out-door space! The location was excellent as well. Griffith Park is just up the road, and there are some amazing restaurants just down the street. We would definitely rent from Todd again!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words. After completely re-conceiving this home built in 1953, there is no better reward than to know you felt at home, comfortable and had a great LA experience. I look forward to your return! Todd
