Why Joel Martin chose Oviedo

This home is located on the lake and surrounded by wildlife. It is within walking distance of The Black Hammock. Here you not only get to experience local living, you can also walk next door to our restaurant or bars, take an exotic airboat ride, and handle our alligators.

Beautiful, charming and peaceful home in a beautiful natural picture perfect setting

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a week in April 2018. The home is clean, spacious and very well maintained and the surrounding natural beauty is absolutely breathtaking with lots of wildlife, a cute pond, and beautiful views of Lake Jesup.

This home does have well water and a septic tank and so long as that is ok, this is a great place to stay. The main gate is operated electrically and the owner lives right next door, and is an awesome host.

Black Hammock restaurant is close by - right around the corner and offers a good variety of drinks and food and the town of Oviedo is a nice town with lots of things to do. Orlando is about 30 miles away so not too far at all.

We absolutely loved every minute of our stay in this beautiful, beautiful home and look forward to another visit soon.

Unique experience

  • 5 of 5

Four of us (two couples) came for Daytona Bike Week. We enjoyed the location. We took rides in all directions so the central location was convienent. If your plan is mainly Daytona then you need to decide if the 1 hour ride is worth the seclusion and scenic beauty. The backyard of this place is amazing. Alligators all along the pond and lake. But dont worry, they wont bother you. They are far more afraid of becoming a pair of riding boots than bothering you. A lot of birds as well. Three Osprey nests. A bald eagle even. A lot of other birds and other wildlife. Beautiful enclosed sun porch to enjoy the view in the morning. And the entire back living room wall opens up onto the sun porch. What a view. Gated driveway makes you feel safe and secluded. Owner lives next door and was very responsive to concerns or needs. Just text him and he gets right back to you. You will be on well water and if the chlorinator gets low you will know it. But Joel gets right on it. Beautiful master bedroom and master bath. Other two bedrooms are acceptable. Nice large kitchen and large refrigerator although we didn’t cook much except for breakfast. We usually left on rides by noon and got back late. There is a decent place to eat you can walk to and a bar there as well. Music from there can be heard late on weekends. But their margaritas are 2 for 1 every day and refreshing after a long day of riding. They also serve alligator. It doesnt really taste like chicken. They also do airboat rides from there although we never found the time. Overall, an excellent experience and would recommend without reservation. Thank you Joel.

Peaceful & Welcoming

  • 5 of 5

This VERY SPACIOUS Home is peaceful and welcoming. The owner is friendly and superbly on top of communication. The master suite is extremely comfortable and would be suited for a great Honeymoon or Anniversary. We enjoyed the morning lake views and watching the wildlife (Crocodile, Birds, Hawk). We had a wonderful time!

We absolutely loved this place. It's set in a beautiful area with a lake behind it. There's also a delicious restruant next over with amazing airboat rides. I'd definitely stay here again.
