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.

Welcome to Motown Museum Adjacent.

The space
After one year of strenuous renovation of the duplex completed during Spring 2017, we are pleased to offer this half.... the first floor home. A two bedroom one bath, top to bottom restoration with a few new ideas added, including all new utilities and appliances.

Each bedroom features a new Queen set. Fresh linens, towels.

Kitchen essentials are in place.

New Washer/Dryer downstairs in our basement.

This residence is especially important to me as my life is deeply connected to Motown Records, beginning from the very first time I heard The Supremes & Temptations Live album as a small child, to the school I attended with Michael Jackson in L.A., then visiting Berry Gordy's home several times as a young man, followed by my own career in music promotion for many record labels as well as acquaintance with Kerry & Karen Gordy. To be Motown's neighbor today (across the street) after a lifetime on the westcoast is surreal for me to say the least. But here we are. And I'm sharing the duplex with you now.

Wifi by Xfinity. App based TV only. Or bring your own devices.

Parking is wide open and plentiful directly in front of our home.

Other things to note
From March 20th, we are moving up check-in time to 5pm due to big changes with local circumstances. However, we can offer noon checkouts as well.

Please note that Same Day requests are vetted out even more carefully than usual here. Make absolutely sure your introduction and guestcount information is stellar as I do not approve every request that comes in.

Due to many, many problems we have with guests damaging my homes, I will no longer accept requests that do not have past reviews on their profile, unless there are excellent written & communication skill sets evident at inquiry and you can convince me.

Like much of Detroit, this block has other duplexes undergoing renovation. It’s a very historic neighborhood but making its re-introduction to the world. I am an early adopter in area. Great neighbors though and amazingly central location with lots of City planning & construction happening everywhere around us.

When you check-in during winter season there is strong possibility thermostat will be on low. This is because utility charges in Detroit are incredibly expensive. Feel free to take it up to 69/70 during your experience here. It warms the home nicely. Trust me - you don’t need to blast it and we ask that you apply self control. I’m fighting $400 a month utility invoices during winter.

We will not tolerate incorrect guestcounts or linens and towel damages here. Be advised. The arbitration process is swift and unkind.

We do not offer unlimited paper supplies here.

There is discoloration on the adhesive seal that joins the bathtub and wall. It is not dirt.

Detroit is the future. Several guests didn’t get the memo and that’s ok. It is what it is. All you need is vision.

Enjoy.

Motown. Motown. Motown. That is all I have to say. j/k

Just our luck how this street is under the care and protection of nearby Henry Ford Hospital as part of its 24 Hour Access plan for contingencies and emergencies. This means the street is monitored, swept of snow consistently, patrolled. It's a nice feature of living here. I pretend it's my private security team. :))

This is an enterprise/re development zone. It is not Carmel, California. My rates have been set accordingly.

Traveler. Last of cafe society. Former music Industry marketer (Pink, Lauryn Hill, Britney Spears, Wu Tang, Arrested Development, Big Pun, etc. etc.) Former food/beverage FOH flack & micro investor (Ba Bar Seattle). @GeneDexter @VacationRenter A prolific Sharing Economy participant since 2009. My global team's viewpoint is simple - sharing affordable five star environments and/or personal experiences.. We happily share Seattle, Palm Desert, Las Vegas, Detroit, Lansing, and Phuket/Thailand with you. My future homes will try to include Kauai, Vieques, Coastal Florida. And yes, I am always available to consult others as to the management and maintenance of your own homes. The schedule is ridiculous but whenever possible I am happy to sit down and talk, very occasionally opening a bottle of wine when we do. Mostly, I am on the run throughout the world. Independent and busy people understand me best. This is why there is so much written detail about my homes and how to happily stay in them. I prefer guests who are of the world and who know how to travel within it - maturely, efficiently, accurately, without alot of fuss or hand holding... 99.5% of my homes offer self service check-in. Text or call my team (each manager is noted in your house manual - itinerary) for questions or emergency needs, unless otherwise noted where I personally am available. We are always, always online! I’m Gene Dexter. You are invited in.
