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

I stayed at Casa de los Desperados during a trip through California in early April. Thanks to the reviews on this site, I decided to stay at this B&B for two nights and was so glad I did. I had a bit of a challenge finding it at first, which is funny in retrospect, as it is the only house... More

Thank you Wayne and Michael for an incredible 2-day getaway. We cannot say enough about this fantastic weekend getaway. We were looking for an off-the-beaten path desert stay, one with unique cabins, warm hosts, interesting guests, delicious surroundings and gourmet food. You delivered in every way. We enjoyed lovely hiking with your dogs, breakfast table conversations with like-minded independent travelers,... More

I wanted to get off the beaten path, away from the bustle and heat of Palm Springs, and into the quiet. I found all this and more at Casa de los Desperados. Wayne and Michael are gracious and accommodating hosts. I stayed at the Casa for four nights in mid-April and thoroughly enjoyed the peaceful environment, Wayne's awesome breakfasts, and... More

We spent one night at this very secluded and inviting retreat, which is tucked away in the hills of Whitewater Canyon just north of Palm Springs. Sad to say, we did not make arrangements ahead of time to dine at Los Desperados, and that was a very big mistake! We dined instead in Palm Springs, and contented ourselves with the... More

My wife and I stayed at Casa de los Desperados in late February, 2014. We visited the Palm Springs area for the hiking and found this location ideal for accessing trails within the wilderness preserves in the San Bernardino Mountains. The setting is quite stunning as you are up in the desert foothills of the San Bernardinos and look out... More
