About Joel Martin

Joel Martin was born in Paris, France. His family moved to Africa when he was young, and there he grew up surrounded by the magnificent wildlife. He spent a lot of his youth out in the jungles hunting snakes, alligators and other creatures. His survival skills were honed by his many African and Malgache friends.

He returned to France to do his tour of duty. He chose to be in the Navy which had their base at Toulon, in the beautiful south of France. After his tour of duty was over, he settled in Corsica, where he opened a restaurant and nightclub. He also had a small ranch where he could ride his horses.

After 12 years spent in Corsica, he decided to open a franchise of mini supermarkets in several ski resorts in the French Alps.

The lure of the French Riviera drew Joel and family. There he went to open a real estate company. But all plans changed in 1995, when he won a green card and was allowed to emigrate to America. Without hesitation, he packed up the family and moved to the States. Joel chose Florida as he enjoys the heat and humidity, so reminiscent of his youth.

His choice of lifestyle led him to the Oviedo area where he could live in the country and keep his horse. On a morning walk one day he discovered that not 5 minutes away is the Black Hammock Restaurant, on lovely Lake Jesup, with it’s mangroves and alligators. Now he knows he is in paradise! He is at home just as he was in Africa.

Joel obtained his American Citizenship, fully living out his AMERICAN DREAM!

To further improve Black Hammock Adventures' air boat business Joel obtained his Master Airboat License. He, as well as all of Black Hammock's airboat pilots, have their Master Airboat Captain License.

Joel Martin purchased this house in 2017

Great for large families

  • 4 of 5

We were attending a wedding in Orlando and stayed here because we had 10 people. The property itself is great - rooms are big, the appliances are new and the view outside is great. The property is in a somewhat remote area so there is some driving to do.

The one thing we would have loved to see is more attention to some of the finer details such as extra linens, towels, soaps, dish soap, detergent, etc. We had to make a run to get these and the nearest stores are a good 15-20 minutes away. The manager asked me what I needed and I gave her the list but she never called me back. Instead, she just sent me an email telling me that if they find these supplies they will come by the property and deliver them - that never happened. Eventually, I gave up and got them myself.

Owner's Response: I apologize for the confusion. We provide enough towels for each guest, linens for each bedroom, toilet paper for the bathroom, pots and pans and dishes to cook with, and a washer and dryer for you to use at your convenience. At the moment, we do not provide bathroom soap, dish soap, laundry detergent or extra towels for out of the house usage. Those items you would need to bring or purchase yourself. I apologize for the misunderstanding, we will definitely work on improving our service for the future. We hope you will stay with us again.
