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 next adventure. However, we still have massive educational loans to pay off before we retire.

Erik Hedberg purchased this House in 2012

Why Erik Hedberg chose Ocoee

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.

The home is perfect for a large family or a couple of families to spread out and reconnect with each other. We loved the heated pool, privacy of the yard and the waking/nature path nearby. The kids spent hours on their scooters riding through the neighborhood and on the nature path. The family room/game room over the garage was a hit with the kids and it allowed the adults to have their own space downstairs to play. We were impressed and hope to come back again soon. Thanks for sharing your home with us! The Cole's

We got a chance to walk on the nearby trail. We played games, danced and had a great time bonding. We will definitely stay here again when in the area. The owner, Mr. Erik was so attentive....calling to make sure everything was okay and that we had everything we needed. Thanks Erik for making our stay outstanding!

                                                                        This is a beautiful home.

                                                                        We came to Orlando for my daughter’s wedding. This house was perfect for 13 family members which included 7 grandchildren. The house was clean, spacious and comfortable. Unfortunately the weather was unseasonably cool, so did not get to enjoy the pool as much as we would have liked. No regrets here. We will definitely consider returning.

                                                                        Perfectly large enough!

                                                                        The house was perfectly large enough for 18 of us (plus two babies). It is nicely situated in the corner with woods and a bike/running trail behind the house. There are houses nearby, but it felt very private. We enjoyed the pool table in the garage and would have enjoyed the heated pool if the weather had been better...very nice pool...larger than expected. The only complaint would be the very worn out and uncomfortable mattresses on the sleeper sofas.

                                                                        Owner's Response:

                                                                        Hello Lisa,

                                                                        Thank you for the email exchange and brainstorming ideas on the sleeper sofa mattresses. I have come to find out that the sleeper sofas we purchased were sold with low quality mattresses. Today, I purchased two high quality "memory foam" mattress replacements. They will be delivered to the house by February 1st.

                                                                        Thanks for your feedback,

                                                                        Erik

                                                                        From far away this place looks great but up close its not worth it.

                                                                        I’ve spoken to the property owner before we signed up for this rental. He promised a full cleaning crew for the property and when we got there 1 woman was cleaning. She had to clean this big house in 4 hours which is impossible. The prior guest leaves at 11am and the next guest comes in at 3:00 pm. There is no way possible for 1 person to clean this entire house, bathrooms, dust, vacuum, change linens and towels in that amount of time. On top of this the blender had mold growing on it. Didn’t notice until I took lid off which I do have pictures, blinds were broken and missing and no privacy. Since there is a walking path behind the home people would always walk by and you couldn’t close blinds. When I told the homeowner that this property is not maintained as promised he said oh well. Make memories don’t focus on the property. Also he says in ad that the pool is at 82 degrees. It’s not. His pool cleaner came and flat out said the pool water is 72. Huge difference. This place I would NEVER do again. Every sheet for the beds has stains from bleach and things were broken and infested with bugs. Not a vacation more like a dump with a landlord who doesn’t care!

                                                                        Owner's Response:

                                                                        We take our poor reviews very seriously. All my reviews previously have been 5 star reviews and one 4 star review. So, my first 1 star review is of great concern. In response, I hire a cleaning crew of 3 people ( a husband and wife team, plus a helper). I will work harder to make sure that all three cleaners are there from now on. I was not told about the blender, but all his complaints from this review have been forwarded to the cleaning crew for correction.

                                                                        Further, the family came to Florida on one of the coldest climates in Florida history. I asked that they put the pool blanket on at nights because outside temperatures were dipping to 20 degrees (which he complained about). Without a pool blanket, pool temp will go to 72 degrees in the morning. However, I have a solar heating system and an electric system that both work to move 16,000 gallons of water to 82 degrees by noon each day.

                                                                        The bicycle path behind the house is buffered by a 40 ft wooded berm. If you are outside, you can hear voices from people on the bike path, but they can not see you.

                                                                        I did everything in my power to please this person. He texted me at 3 am telling me the house heat was not working. I sent an A/C professional out on a Sunday (the next morning) only to get a report back that the Units were 100% functional. He noted that there was a wasp nest on the second floor exterior eave. I sent our contracted exterminator to take care of it only to get a report back that the nest was empty and taken down. I had to send a pool tech out twice in response to his complaints. The pool was 100% functional both times. A lot of money was spent getting professionals to the house.

                                                                        Despite my best effort, I could not please this person. At the end of his stay, I wrote him a thank you card and sent him back his full $350 deposit. He left the house fairly clean and only slightly damaged one chair. I wonder why he chose to be anonymous?

                                                                        Finally, I do care about my vacationers very much as you can tell by my other reviews. All vacationers get my personal cell phone number and are encouraged to call anytime with issues or questions. Many of my clientele at this house have been returning for 3 years or more. I have another home where clientele have been returning for 15 years or more!!!

                                                                        I would be more than happy to talk about this review to anyone who would like more information. Please feel free to call me.

                                                                        Thanks,

Enjoy a private, spacious home with back yard woods in a quiet neighborhood. With a couple of steps to the bike path you can enjoy miles and miles of trails through the country where you can explore public gardens and area lakes. Within visual distance you can fish at trout lake. Walk to the community playground. Within a short drive you can golf at over 15 golf clubs or visit many local attractions such as Disney World, Universal Studios, Sea World, Gatorland, Cape Canaveral, and Busch Gardens.
