Located in the heart of Whitewater Canyon, but only 15 minutes from downtown Palm Springs, our desert lodge will transport you to a world of natural warmth and relaxation. Whether you are seeking a peaceful retreat, a romantic getaway, or 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 proud to offer 3 well-appointed rooms, each with its own patio, outdoor entrance, and bathroom – and uniquely decorated with antique furnishings and artifacts.

Stay in the King Room at Casa de los Desperados

Whitewater Room

Decorated in antique and lodge-style furnishings, our largest room boasts a comfy king sized bed with super soft line-dried Egyptian cotton sheets, and your own private covered patio with Adirondack chairs and vintage swinging couch.

Stay in the Jungle Room at Casa de los Desperados

Jungle Room

This queen room’s leopard carpet and exotic art will make you feel like you’re on Safari. The private bathroom is paneled in mahoghany. Your secluded patio is a great place for coffee or reading that book you’ve been looking forward to!

Stay in the Fresco Room at Casa de los Desperados

Fresco Room

The beautiful painting that gives this room its name is a copy of a fresco in a Venetian palazzo. A little bit baroque, a little bit mountain lodge, this room has a queen bed and its own patio for a peaceful refuge where you can recharge and relax.

“The house is warm, inviting, comfortable and very homey. In short, this is surely a destination…and our stay was just perfect! Thank you Wayne and Michael. We can’t wait to see you again!”

Leave Your Stress Behind

Go on a hike up the canyon wash (the dogs are sure to show you the way), visit the Whitewater Preserve, journey through Joshua Tree, and be home in time for a night on the town, or star gazing without street lights interrupting the view. Immerse yourself in the natural beauty and charm of the desert.

Wayne King has devoted his life to hospitality leading to the opening of his own nationally recognized restaurants. Casa de los Desperados is his latest creation: “I really wanted a mountain lodge meets western ranch feeling, and it’s been great fun creating a space to make people feel relaxed and at home, but also get away from it all.”
