My husband and I had been curious about Casa de los Desperados for several years and are glad to have finally spent two delightful days in this veritable oasis. Surrounded by desert, the pampering comfort and amenities of the house come as a very welcome surprise. This is an excellent spot for relaxing and enjoying peace, quiet, and nature. We...

My girlfriend and I stayed int he king suite. The bed was super comfy and the outdoor bench and swing lounge was easy to take a nap on. The hosts Michael and Wayne go above and beyond to make you feel at home and honestly by the end of our stay they felt like friends. They were super friendly without...

My boyfriend and I stayed overnight at Casa de los Desperados a few weeks ago, and it was a beautiful getaway. Relaxing and nourishing for the soul, we wish we could have stayed longer! Michael and Wayne were lovely hosts, and their friendly and cuddly dogs were lovely company also. I think my boyfriend still misses the pups! The place...

I needed an escape from the craziness of city life and, boy, did I hit the jackpot! I swear Casa de los Desperados just jumped out at me on Trip Advisor. On a quiet, canyon road the beauty of the desert awaits you. Wayne and Michael couldn't have been friendlier, but also gave you all the privacy and kick-back time...

My husband and I recently had the privilege of joining Michael and Wayne for a lovely stay at Casa de los Desperados. What they offer is a unique stay - unlike any other we have experienced. The location of the property was perfect for us - just miles from the diverse attractions of Palm Springs, Palm Desert and the Whitewater...

My brother and his wife found this gem a few years ago, and we met them there this past weekend, with my dad and his wife. To say that it was a wonderful experience doesn't do it justice. The house is warm, inviting, comfortable and very homey. Beyond the beautiful setting and the amazing hospitality, Wayne and Michael hit every...

Wayne and Michael were perfect hosts in this remote and sophisticated BnB in the Palm Springs area. We recently joined our children and their mates for a family celebration and had the 'run of the house'. Every amenity was provided including gourmet breakfasts and an arrival dinner prepared by a professional, semi-retired chef. The rooms were charming and comfortable, including...

Set in a beautiful and peaceful oasis beneath a nighttime sky filled with stars, La Casa de Los Desperados is located in Whitewater Canyon, a few miles outside of Palm Springs; close enough to enjoy all Palm Springs has to offer, yet sufficiently removed to provide a truly quiet and restful getaway. Ever friendly and helpful hosts Wayne and Michael...

The Casa is located in the Whitewater preserve and backs up to great secluded hiking. It is comfortable and relaxing. Michael and Wayne are great hosts that cook the most amazing food. Worthy of the well earned five star acclaim.

It was the best of two worlds. It was a week at Casa de los Desperados - a beautiful B & B in the Whitewater Wilderness Preserve, yet only fifteen minutes from Palm Springs. It all started with a delicious and hearty breakfast. And then there were some choices - hiking in the Whitewater Preserve, taking in the attractions of...
