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.

Property is only a few minutes from the entry to Joshua Park. Super easy check in process and a very attentive owner made this a smooth process!
The views are majestic-there is no other word for it!
Joshua Tree Beauty
Family of four stayed two wonderful nights here. The house was super clean and had plenty of space. The neighborhood was very quiet and contained awesome views of the surrounding area. Lots of wildlife everywhere we walked. Such a great relaxing place. Having AC in June was so appreciated!!
Wow, Zen House is really lovely, quiet and well furnished.
When I walked into Zen House I was so pleased to see it was even nicer than the photos. The kitchen is well equipped and stocked with staples including coffee from Joshua Tree. The bedroom we stayed in was very comfortable and the bathrooms are fresh and modern, linens are lovely. At night, you couldn't hear much of anything outside and in the morning, the quails will serenade you during breakfast. A delightful place.
A Peaceful Haven In A Garden Of Delights
My family has been doing rentals around the country every year for the past 15 years for a week of hiking and camaraderie. We all agreed this was the best equipped home we have stayed in and accompanied by the most accommodating host we have dealt with. We arrived to find fresh baked muffins, a weeks worth of coffee and a well equipped kitchen. This was on top of a veritable garden of delights consisting of a multitude of plants in flower accompanied by a daily parade of Quail, Morning Doves, Road Runners along with Cotton Tail and Black Tailed Rabbits. Breakfast was taken on the front porch as the surrounding hillslope came alive with the chatter and songs of all the birds either welcoming the new day or looking for love. Dinners also on the porch to feast on the stars before the moon rose over Joshua Tree National Park. One of all time best trips. Thanks Vera for making our stay in the Zen House so pleasant.
Fred, you and your friends were a total joy to have at Zen House.
You are wonderful people, and thanks for leaving the house so great when
you left...I was amazed! And I'm so glad that you enjoyed the area so much!
I love it here too...it's so much fun to see the animals, and to explore the
wonderful hikes in the National Park, and to see all the amazing blooms and wildflowers this time of year.
Hope you can come again! Best wishes, Vera
We thoroughly enjoyed both the house and Joshua Tree. It was my first visit and will certainly not be the last. Well equipped house with plenty of room. We enjoyed all the patios and Jacuzzi. Vera was a great host.
Reviving Spring Break at the Zen House
We have a fabulous time staying at the Zen House just outside the entrance to Joshua Tree National Park. The house is very quiet and peaceful - and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The kids went critter spotting outside the house every morning, we spent each day hiking through JTNP, and then back the house for hot tub and star gazing. Thanks Vera!
Stuart, it was such a joy to have you and your family stay at Zen House!
I am go glad that you had a lovely time, both in the house and also at
the National Park. And you left the house so nice...thank you so much!
I would love it if you ever come again! Best wishes, Vera
