About Joshua Touber
I stumbled onto the Venice Canals in the mid-90s and knew immediately that someday I would build my ideal home here. A decade later, in 2005, I spent a year completing construction of this custom home where my family, relatives and friends partially use the space throughout the year, alongside VRBO guests.
Joshua Touber purchased this House in 2005
Why Joshua Touber chose Venice Canals
This home has been with VRBO since 2007, longer than any of the other wonderful canal homes now also listed - and I believe I set the bar high for quality accommodations and excellent guest care during visits. Guests leave very, very satisfied and eager to return.

Would return again and again
Our stay in Josh's house was fantastic. He has truly thought of everything! The beds were super comfortable, the curtains/shades effectively blocked out the light in the bedrooms, there were ample sheets and towels (we used both beds, the pull-out sofa AND the two air mattresses for three adults and three kids). The pantry and kitchen were both well-stocked and it was so lovely to use the honor system to pay for whatever we needed to use. We didn't cook much other than breakfast (Whole Foods and other grocery stores are a short drive away), but if we had needed more equipment, spices, etc., it was all there. Josh was very welcoming and met us at the house to give us a tour and show us how everything worked (and had left the table set for two and put out some fresh flowers and a bottle of wine--such a warm welcome!). The location was phenomenal (we went for lots of walks and runs directly from the house), and we could not have had a better time in Venice.
Thanks Melanie - it was great to meet your family and I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay in the Canals. Hope to see you all again! Josh
Amazing home in a fantastic location!!! Owner was excellent we had an amazing time. Best stay so far!!!
Beautiful house at the Venice canals
To summarize our stay at Josh's house at the Venice canals, we simply need one word: PERFECT!
We stayed in Venice for one week as a family of four. The house provided ample space to spread all over - each of our two grown sons had his own bedroom (the younger one slept in the "media" room with home entertainment system and gaming station, what he loved). The location on the canals was just superb - everything of interest in Venice is in walking distance - we walked to Venice beach in just 5 minutes, also to Abbot Kinney Blvd. with all the shops and restaurants. As much as we loved the ideal location, we loved to stay in the house itself. It provides much more that you'll ever need for a perfect stay. Everything we needed to make ourselves comfortable was just there.
Not to forget Josh as host of the property. He was always accessible - whenever we had a question, he would answer immediately. He helped us with driving directions or trip suggestions and any other questions we had - Josh, thanks for that again!
Should you plan a trip to Venice and consider Josh's home - make sure YOU stay there and no one else - you'll never forget it!
A very special house in an idyllic location...
All of the accolades in the previous reviews are entirely accurate - the house is lovely and immaculate, the amenities are brilliant, the location is spectacular - and Josh, the owner, is fantastic to deal with. We stayed for four weeks and I could not recommend this house more highly.
Great house, generously equipped with amenities, kitchen equipment and supplies, tv, music, good wi-fi,
plentiful linens, good washer/dryer, heat, a/c, decks, hot tub , garage-- all the comforts. We look forward to coming back.
Fantastic Venice Vacation home!
This house is the BEST! Where do I start? Locations is great for access to beach and getting around in Venice. House is beautiful and spacious with great decks with magnificent views and just so cool that is on one of the canals! There is a hot tub on the roof deck and lounge chairs for sunning! There are two beach cruisers that come with the house that made getting around so much fun. The kitchen is stocked with great cooking utensils, pot and pans, china and glassware. It was nice that the owner provides soap, paper products and other items if needed. There are plenty of towels and there are great sheets and comforters on the beds. All amenities are updated and modern and most of all the house is sooooo CLEAN! We appreciated that very very much! There is also a garage and the master shower is a steam shower. It was truly the best place to stay! The owners were great to work with and came by to show us how to work everything! I highly recommend staying here!
