About

Welcome to the Casa de los Desperados Bed & Breakfast, operated by a critically renowned chef,his partner and their loveable dogs Gianni and Piero. Located in the heart of the soon to be designated "Sand to Snow National Monument" the Casa de los Desperados will transport you to a world of warmth, relaxation and delicious food in an unspoiled, completely natural canyon setting just across a country road from the historic Whitewater River. Whether you are seeking a peaceful retreat, a romantic getaway, or want a base from which to explore the natural wonders of the Coachella Valley, you will find what you are looking for at Casa de los Desperados. We are surrounded by hiking trails and share our beautiful canyon with the Friends of the Desert Mountains Education Center where you can learn about the history and geography of our special location. The staff there is always happy to recommend hikes and activities. Please "bear" in mind (no pun intended!)this is a true unspoiled desert location with wild animals and irregular terrain. There is nothing else like this in the area that is also so close to Palm Springs. An elegant retreat! Look for us on Airbnb and Facebook under Casa de los Desperados for tons of pictures and of course, Trip Advisor. Call us at 760 325 7990 for reservations. You will have the experience of a lifetime.

Palm Spring serendipity

4.8 on November 28, 2013

If you are tired of over-priced cliche hotel chains or outdated motels then Casa de los Desperados is the perfect answer when visiting Palm Springs. Or maybe you just want a place where the world passes by while you read or walk or soak in a hot tub enjoying the quiet stillness of the desert; and when you are ready for food and conversation Wayne and Michael will entertain you with a gormet version of both. It was one of the best B&B experiences we've had in decades of traveling - warm, natural ,and welcoming. David and Julie


Can't wait to come back!

We spent a wonderful week at Casa and cannot wait to go back.! A short drive from Palm Springs we walked in the door  and the rest of the world disappeared.    Although we had planned  on several outings in the area we were so comfortable in the lodge we hardly left.  We could not say enough about our hosts.  The breakfasts were simple gourmet if there is such a thing. Delicious, fresh with beautiful presentations.  The lodge is decorated with a classy warmth that says welcome  and sit a spell. .  Wayne and Michael were great hosts and we fell in love with their helpers, Gianni and Piero, the resident canines.  We can't wait to go back!  Bob and Michele, West Chester, Pa.

My husband and I had an amazing time. Casa de ls Desperados was serene and just breathtaking. We had delicious food, enjoyed the company of Wayne and Michael over dinner, went on a nature walk with Pierro and Lola, and gazed at the stars and majestic view from the hot tub. This was our first bed and breakfast and probably the only one we'll cone back to...thanks Wayne and Michael!


A desert spot to discover!

Imagine: You arrive at this desert spot + everything just “fits together” in a meant-to-be kind of way. And if you time it right, you can join the hosts for dinner. Don’t even think of missing this opportunity, if it’s offered as an add-on! Just maybe the hosts are Travel “Whisperers” --- they’ll make your stay comfortable with great food, accommodations and many of those little things that you didn’t even know you wanted/needed. My back-story is that we stayed at Casa de los Desperados and we loved it so much that we decided to move to Palm Springs. Just a warning……(just saying…!)


like a man in the desert.....

i traveled on a winding road managing to find an airstream and an adobe tucked away, a desert paradise awaited. if you are one to hike outdoors, gaze at stars, and eat eat eat eat you must stay here. the company, the hospitality, the sights, the weather, the food- AMAZING. thank you wayne and michael, i hope to return one day soon!
