When I realized I could visit the home (albeit a temporary one) of Edgar Degas, I was anxious to do so. The guide (Degas's great-great niece, great-granddaughter of his brother) was friendly and full ... read more »
We are locals (Baton Rouge) with three children ranging in age from 21-13. The Degas House tour was a fascinating find in a city we practically grew up in visiting the usual tourist attractions. it is... read more »
A great 2 hour leisurely tour of Degas' wife's family home on Esplanade Ave. It becomes incomparable when you figure out that 2 of the 3 women who offer the tour are great grand daughters of Degas. Th... read more »
Stayed at the Bancroft house during jazzfest 2016 and it was a nightmare. For charging $1,600 a night and spending $8,500 dollars the place was completely trashed when we walked in. The pool was absolutely disgusting the grill didn't work at all. When we called the staff, it took them day 4 days to clean the pool which was a big reason for renting the home in the first place. So we only were able to use it for the last day of the stay which was very disappointing for the kids. Also they wouldn't come fix the Internet just told us "well on the Airbnb it says it has working Internet" they wouldn't even reimburse for any part of the stay for falsely advertising there home. I also found the place on Airbnb and they urged me to book it through there website and NOT use Airbnb so I couldn't give them feedback or have the insurance of terrible service getting some money back. Will be reporting them to better business bureau and to air bnb for advertising on there site, but conning people to use there site instead so they don't have to pay Airbnb there portion of deal and have to deal with air bnb standards. Since I was SCAMMED and booked with there site I pretty much spent $8,500 to stay at a motel 6 quality place for five days place is a complete joke....
I hosted my wife's 40th birthday party last year with the Degas House, and I'm still amazed at how awesome the experience was! The property itself is not only steeped in rich history but also beautiful and well-kept. I hired a band (Leah Rucker - awesome singer) and they were readily accommodated by the Degas House staff. We held the party outside, and our photographer (Jennifer Zdon - she rocks) captured absolutely amazing shots throughout the party. The outdoor lighting is perfect, and there was plenty of parking near the event. I especially want to thank Flora for taking the stress out of planning this event, as she guided me though the choices for headcount, food, drink and layout. She was very patient with me, and I really appreciate that. I would absolutely recommend the Degas House to anyone seeking an unforgettably awesome experience with their loved ones.
Interesting telling of the story of Degas in NOLA. Pam, the tour guide knew her stuff. Worth a visit especially if you've had enough of the French Quarter. Pam extra time to have fried chicken at Wille Mae's which is just four blocks away.
Went to the Degas House for a wedding reception. It was a beautiful place, and it's so cool the family was actually staying there at the time of the reception.
Great staff! Specially the cook Alex. It gives you an experience with the history of De Gas
