About Erik Hedberg
Chrysanne and I have 5 children all of whom have graduated college and have started their careers all over the US and Canada. We are now 'empty nesters preparing for our next adventure. However, we still have massive educational loans to pay off before we retire here.
Erik Hedberg purchased this House in 2012
Why Erik Hedberg chose Orlando
This is our future retirement home. Our grown up children are spread all over the U.S. We can think of no better place to attract our future grand children than Orlando!
What makes this House unique
Our home is very spacious (over 4,000 sq ft) with high ceilings which is a must since we are both over 6 feet tall. Our private and spacious back yard with heated and screened pool abutts a bike path for our running and bicycling addictions. I am looking forward to teaching our grandchildren to fish at Trout Lake which is a few steps away. Also, we hope our grand children will enjoy the Orlando culture.

Great Family Place
Very spacious home for our family gathering for Christmas. Having a first floor bedroom allowed our 90 year old family member join us. This was one of the best kitchen stocked vacation home we’ve ever rented. The pool and the bike trail leading to a playground was perfect for the younger members of our family. The home is located in a quiet well kept neighborhood. Owners very responsive for initial questions we had. We would rent again if the occasion arises.
Home away from home!
Beautiful home and furnishings.
Erik extremely helpful.
Easy check in and check out.
Charcoal grill by pool, we didn’t use.
Awesome house, we were pleased!
Big comfortable house.
Nice house, well appointed.
The home was very nice, the kitchen had plenty of items for cooking. The owner was easily available. We had a minor problem when the pool turned green, but he called someone to come out and adjust the chemicals right away. Great vacation.
Loved the pool and property!!! Had a wonderful stay!
We really enjoyed staying at this property. The house had plenty of room for a large group and there was good parking. The pool was nice and clean. It did get warm at night in the house because you couldn’t turn the air conditioner below 74. Also there were some weeds around the pool. Overall, it’s a very nice place to stay and the owners are great to work with.
It was wonderful having you. Thank you for this important feedback. This gives us a chance to improve for our future customers. I wanted provide our actions based on your feedback.
First, due to reports that Roundup may cause cancer, we have stopped using it around the pool area. So, weeds will grow. We have "weeded" them and tried vinegar, but they keep coming back, relentlessly. We will experiment with bleach now.
Secondly, the mean A/C cooling temperature for Florida summers is 77. Power companies recommend 78. For our Northern friends, we set our temperatures to 74. When Florida temperatures reach 93 outside, stepping into the house at 74 is a chilling experience. We have also installed ceiling fans in every bedroom. Nonetheless, here are the actions we are taking based on this feedback.
1. To set expectations, we have put a note on our Homeaway web page concerning our A/C setting.
2. Nest Thermostats are a wonderful informational tool. We are considering moving the temperature limit down to 73. Electric cost will increase $100 per week. This cooler settings will require an increase in our rates.
