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.

To heck with the theme parks, the fun is right in the backyard

  • 5 of 5

If you are a nature lover AND also have special needs that include the need to stay cool, this is the place for you. This house was amazing.

Your first welcome to the home is when you enter the winding driveway through the ornate, black metal gates. Both sides of the driveway had lush palms & beautiful flowers. We arrived at night and it looked and sounded like we were entering a tropical forest. Entry to the home is via a key code provided by the owner 24 hours prior to arrival who also lived right next door if you needed anything. He is very friendly and accommodating.

The home: ceramic tile throughout the entire home. This, for me, was a huge factor because I have Multiple Sclerosis and getting hot for long periods makes me very ill, and the tile kept the house cool. There was also central air and ceiling fans in the living room and bedrooms.

The floor plan: wide open. The kitchen had granite counter tops, a dishwasher, smooth surface electric stovetop/oven and fridge. The garage had a washer and dryer. Bonus: a Keurig coffeemaker. The kitchen also had glasses, cups, plates, pots, pans, cutlery and serving ware. The beds were SO comfortable and the pillows were downy. The master bath was incredible with a two person jetted tub.

The back: there is a HUGE completely enclosed, screened in sun room attached to a smaller enclosed viewing area.This viewing area is just feet away from a marshy pond that holds a litany of wildlife, gators included.The backyard: 2 marshy ponds, one that held baby gators and frogs galore and the other that held a larger gator that we saw so often we named it "Kevin". One night I took a flashlight with the teenagers and spotted it around both ponds and counted 8 pairs of red eyes blinking back at us. Behind the ponds was Lake Jesup.

Night time: a cacophony of green tree frogs, pig frogs, etc, with tri colored herons that sounded so amazing. During the day: Osprey (lots of them), a couple of bald eagles, wood storks, cranes, white egrets and red shouldered hawks are just a FEW of the birds we observed.

The house is set off a secluded road and while there are neighbors, it felt wonderfully secluded. I can't wait to go back!

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.
