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.

Good basic house for our hiking and exploring getaway
We've rented this house four times, so it's like coming home. Fresh interior paint this time. Love the wildlife that comes to visit, the quick hike up the rock hill next to the house. Calling it a "Manor" is misleading. "Wonderview in the Rocks" is more appropriate.
Absolutely wonderful experience,!
Had a terrific time here with my 3 daughters, great as a base for Joshua Tree exploration, but also as a fun spot on its own right. The house had everything we needed and more. The peaceful desert silence was great as were the views and the rock hill accessible for exploration. As others have mentioned Vera goes out of her way to make this a pleasant experience for everyone and this was much appreciated.
Vera's house is set among the giant boulders just a mile from the entrance to Joshua Tree NP with beautiful views in all directions. Comfortably furnished and the kitchen is well equipped for cooking which is important as there a few restaurants in JT. Vera was very welcoming and communicated arrival instructions clearly. I recommend highly.
Beautiful desert views and wildlife, spectacular sunsets and 🌅�. Peaceful and quiet.
Vera cares about her property and wants her guests to have a good experience. The house is well supplied with the basics. She has also placed artistic constructions composed of found weathered materials, natural and artificial, combined with her photographs of the desert, to make the house more personal and interesting. We had a great stay, both hiking in Joshua Tree NP and visiting art galleries in the area and in Palm Springs and Palm Desert. Both my wife and I hope to be back next year.
convenient location to National Park
conveniently located simple home with lovely art created by the manager; delicious muffins from the local bakery and local coffee. Thanks!
Comfortable, clean and desert beauty all around.
This property has three bedrooms with a king and two queens. The master is an ensuite with the other bedrooms on the other end of the house. The kitchen is roomy and well appointed and the covered patio has a grill and seating. There is a nice table outdoors and a fire-pit with a bench and wood in the back.
There is silence and boulders to climb right out the backdoor. We saw coyotes, jack rabbits, birds and plenty of lizards. There is heat if you are cold and ac if you are too hot. The living room is cozy with a couch and chairs and there is a widescreen tv and dvd movies.
The best thing about Wonder Rocks is Vera! She is helpful and knowledgeable about Joshua Tree and she is a delight. She provided tea and coffee and fresh baked muffins and told us a place to hear great music and watch the stars. She is very accessible and authentically wants you to get the very best of Joshua tree. We are planning to come back!
