We needed a place to stay during coachella and were lucky to get one last minute at this wonderful little bed and breakfast. The location was near the main town but tucked away near the beautiful whitewater preserve. The nature out there is very beautiful with snow capped mountain views and a running stream. Our room was cozy with a...

Other reviews looked good. We like to stay off the beaten path and close to hiking and outdoors experiences. Casa de los Desperados has it all. Wayne and Michael are superb hosts and the venue is sited in a relaxing, clear-aired wilderness area with a fantastic view of Mount San Jacinto. Close to hiking in Joshua Tree, Thousand Palms, Indian...

I loved this B&B! The place is exclusively located on a preserve with an amazing view of mountains and hiking right outside the door. Wayne is a acclaimed chef and the breakfasts will "wow" you. Both he and Michael are such welcoming hosts, kind and great conversationalists. There are plenty of spaces for privacy such as individual room porches/verandas and...

I wish I could have stayed longer! Los Desperados is a wonderful place in Whitewater, just 20 minutes from downtown Palm Springs. Located on a road right off highway 10, it's a short drive to the Whitewater Preserve, and it's a truly relaxing place to be. Wayne and Michael serve excellent, generous breakfasts, and the house is cozy and welcoming....

I can't say enough nice things about Casa de los Desperados. My daughter and I booked the Airstream for 2 nights and it was so fun. Perfectly restored with maximum upgraded bedding gave us the best sleep ever. The breakfasts and dinner we had at the Casa were superb and healthy. The food is so good, you can hurt yourself...

Want million dollar views, delicious home made snacks and dinner, all from the comfort of a hot tub? Yes please! Casa de los Desperados or "Casa D" as I like to call it, is an "A" plus plus in my book! From the warm and inviting welcome received from proprietors Michael and Wayne, to the complimentary snuggles and tail wags...

What can I say that hasn't been said by everyone else. This is a lovely isolated house situated not far from Palm Springs, where the levels of comfort and relaxation are fabulous. There are good walks in and around the Canyon and Wayne and Michael are great hosts, warm and friendly without being overbearing... and don't even think of eating...
