Two Bedroom one bath duplex merely steps away from world famous Motown Records Museum (Hitsville!).

A total renovation and move-in on the 50th Anniversary of the Detroit Riots. The symbolism of renewal here has not been lost on me.

We had a fantastic stay in Gene's lovely apt. It is very comfortable, well decorated and in a great neighborhood in Detroit. Thanks Gene!

I've been to a few home through this app but, this place is by far the best. clean and in a quiet neighborhood. I came to visit the cobo center, there's much more around. I still have no idea what the Dexter experience is though

The Dexter Experience is 30+ years of career background within Hospitality, Urban Music, Transportation and Real Estate industries, wrapped into affordable 4-5 Star environments I share. It is your surroundings that include quality finishes, artwork and overnight stay within my life's journey. In this case, it is across the street from Motown, home to artists I know and love and worked for. It is essentially and utterly - The Dexter Experience. Hope that clears things up for you.

GREAT location; when Gene says, "Motown adjacent," the place is lit-er-ally one block from the Motown Museum (we went 2x). The place is a short ride to anywhere in Detroit. Neighbors were really cool. Comfy and clean place. We will definitely be back. LOVED Detroit.

Much appreciated review. We are across the street and around a corner from the only music that matters! :)

House is clean and amenities are enough to live by. Neighborhood is unsafe as there were shady activities going on. Gene is terribly rude and condescending when you bring concerns to his attention as intimated by other guest as well. Had an issue where I misplaced keys (later…

Ony has a creative mind for reviews, I will give him that. If he doesn’t want to hear about his dad he shouldn’t have mentioned mine first. He locked himself out on second day, forcing my team to travel one hour each way to save him. When I asked for service fee to compensate team member, he declined. He does not pay attention: we have hamper in bath. We have an irionong board instead of the beds where he ruined two sets of sheets. Yes, I said two. I am a busy, experienced, focused host with homes throughout the world - the last thing I need is to babysit people like this. He does not understand how it is the reviews that will ultimately lock him out. And now, there are two that hosts can consider before accepting him into homes again. Ony is not welcome back, ever.

Nice space located on a quiet neighborhood street close to downtown Detroit. The neighbor we met as very friendly and helpful. If you're interested in using public transit during your stay its very close to a bus stop along a line that will take you downtown.

Cozy beds. Was an affordable rental and easy to get around. Plenty of parking. I recommend bringing an Apple TV or hdmi cord if planning on watching tv since only 7 channels.

I wouldn’t. Apps are built into TV.
