About Vera Topinka

I came to the desert just to see the wildflowers, stumbled across a property for sale with gorgeous views, and fell in love with Joshua Tree. I'm still in love, with my views, and with the wonderful critters, the starry night skies, the bike rides and hikes in the Park, the incredible sunsets and moonrise, the Mojave Desert Land Trust, the smell when it rains, and with this whole amazing community here. And all the wonderful desert detritus lying around has influenced my photography in a fun, eclectic, and recyclable way… I look forward to meeting you when you visit (if I can) and sharing my love of Joshua Tree.

Beautiful Setting among the Joshua Trees!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this lovely little house! The owner, Vera, was very responsive to our needs, and the house is equipped with virtually everything one might need, with a lot of special welcoming touches thrown in, like a big a freshly ground coffee and gourmet muffins from a local bakery. The house is very close to Joshua Tree National Park, so it's a perfect location for vacationers who want to spend time exploring this amazing landmark. I hope that we can return soon!

Owner's Response: Nora, I am so glad you had a wonderful time at WonderView House. I love that we have such a great organic cafe so I can provide delicious muffins, and we have our own Joshua Tree Coffee Co, so I can provide great coffee! The house, being only 1 mile from the entrance to Joshua Tree National Park, makes it very easy to explore the magnificence of the desert here. And downtown is only a 5-minute drive away! And yet you have the privacy of 5 acres. I hope you can return soon also! Thanks, Vera

Exactly what we wanted.

  • 5 of 5

What's great about this place is that you can do some proper exploring right on the property. 50 yards from the front door is a huge rock structure that is really fun to climb and explore. The lot and home are really spacious and comfortable. All the amenities and all of the charm. We will definitely go back!

Great house, close to the park!

  • 5 of 5

Vera was a lovely host and her house was perfect for a weekend getaway to Joshua Tree! We arrived late on a cold Friday night, but Vera had taken the time to leave on lights and heat for us, so the house was super welcoming when we arrived! Her directions to find it were very helpful too, as the roads aren't well lit and cell service can be spotty. She also left us some delicious local muffins and some really excellent coffee from the Joshua Tree Coffee Co. The house itself was perfectly clean, comfortable, and well stocked with everything we needed (even a hairdryer!) There were only two of us and our dog, but the house could easily sleep 6, so it is a great deal! There are a few neighbors nearby, but we still felt like we had all the privacy of being alone to relax in the desert. And with the house only being a mile from one of the park entrances, it was the perfect location for everything we wanted to do. We will definitely stay here again! Thanks Vera!

Great location, clean & comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited Joshua Tree NP for the first time and had a great, relaxing weekend at Vera's house - the location was very convenient, only a mile away from the park entrance. When we saw that there was a firepit behind the house, we went and bought marshmallows and ate them by the fire.

There were lots of books about Joshua Tree in the house that we enjoyed reading - who knew Joshua Tree had such an interesting history?! It made the hikes in the park that much more interesting! There were only 2 of us but the house is perfect for a family - the master suite with attached full bath was on one side of the house, and the 2 additional bedrooms (both good size with queen beds) and the second bathroom were on the other side. The house is very private since it's on a large plot of land and has a safe fenced off area for dogs. We would definitely stay at Vera's house again if we visited the park again!
