This place is as advertised - an awesome location tucked away in a secluded canyon, very nice house, well furnished/decorated with a great setup for private spaces as well as a communal living/dining area. Somehow they manage to keep the place clean despite the all the dust and dirt picked up by the desert winds. Wayne and Michael are great... More

A real gem in the desert, clean and quiet, perfect to get away and decompress. Tastefully decorated with good used pieces (some with history) gives this B&B a comfortable feel, like staying at a good friends house. Hot tub, sky bed, incredible foods and cookies prepared by the hosts, (available dinner on certain days) and a grand desert scape to... More

My husband and I spent two nights in early March for our anniversary. We booked the King room with private hot tub. We were looking for accommodation close to the Whitewater Reserve so we could do a lot of hiking in the area. We were met by the hosts (and their friendly canine friends) on arrival and shown to our... More

I spent two evenings at Casa de los Desperados with my parents and my brother just before Christmas. I had my parents in the large bedroom with a private hot tub while my brother and I stayed in the Air Stream. Although there is a small shower in the Air Stream, we ended up showering in my parents room. Wayne... More

We simply loved staying at Casa de los Desperados. Elegant place and incredibly gracious hosts who welcomed us with a glass of wine and made coffee available each morning! Breakfast is generous, communal, and served at 8:30 AM sharp. You are surrounded by the most incredible nature - - - from a starry starry sky, to very near-by hiking in... More

We had the pleasure of staying one night at Casa de los Desperados at the end of October but for our next visit it will definitely be longer! The canyon setting is fantastic with great views and so peaceful, everything perfect for a relaxing stay. After a great nights sleep enjoy a delicious breakfast served by Wayne and Michael the...

Actually, we were the "other couple" staying at Desperados as noted in the previous review. "The best of everything" states it wonderfully. Our hosts went above and beyond to provide a memorable experience with great food, accommodations, and conversation, while making sure we had all the privacy and time to ourselves that we needed. The setting is peaceful and serene... More

I had eaten in their restaurant in key west years ago and a friend told me they were now running a b&b in palm springs. i figured that if the place was half as good as their fantastic restaurant i'd be okay. Casa exceeded all expectations. The place and the hosts - Michael and Wayne - are a class act.... More

We held a small business meeting here and spent three nights. I cannot say enough about Wayne and Michael. Their attention to detail, sense of humor, amazing food and extensive knowledge of the area made our stay sublime. On our way to the airport we were already discussing how soon we could return. I highly recommend Casa de los Desperados,... More
