About Mindy Strand

Retired, travel enthusiast, nature lover. After living 2 yrs on an offshore island in the FL Keys without utilities, I decided to venture back to civilization, but still wanted the seclusion of a rural setting. I bought this cabin, which was previously a corporate hunting lodge, and updated it in early 2013. I now spend half my time here and rent it for others to enjoy when I am traveling.

Mindy Strand purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Mindy Strand chose Golden Gate

A great place to reconnect with nature, yet close to whatever interests you. Its like camping out, but with all the luxuries and convienences of a world class resort!

What makes this cabin unique

Quiet, private, secluded... But yet close to all the action. Abundant wildlife, frequent sightings of deer, wild hogs, turkey, and an occasional black bear. A comfortable experience in a Florida Nature Preserve.

Peaceful!

  • 4 of 5

This is a great property! It was peaceful and quiet and a great setting for our group. The new "back" bedroom suite was an added bonus.

Outdoor activities to last weeks, peaceful relaxing home, fabulous for families with kids

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 8. 2 kids 11, and 12. We utilized every portion of this home, fought over the front porch hammock, played darts on the back porch, watched the preserve area for animals at dusk, we star gazed and looked at the constellations. The hot tub, and salt water pool was wonderful!!! Screened in from bugs- made all the difference in the world! We played badminton, we did nature walks at night and told scary stories. We all sat and ate at the table big enough for us all. Wonderful, I cant say enough how much we enjoyed this unbelievably cool log cabin home. Wish we had 1 day of cold for use of the fireplaces, but ill take the 82 daily high during December any day. We only went into town to buy groceries and the one time for the beach and ceviche. I came back relaxed, refreshed. The owners are great to work with, very responsive to our 1000 questions and the place is priced more fairly than expected.

Saving this one for future rents.

Family Relaxation In the Sun (Minus the Crowd)

  • 4 of 5

Our family of four enjoyed spring break relaxing pool side without the hassle of the beach crowd. Each day was warmer than the day before & our biggest decision was should we walk out to the pool, take a short drive to the beach or just relax with a quick game of corn hole or darts. The accommodations were very nice and the setting was extremely peaceful, yet a short drive and we were quickly back in civilization (food, beaches, shopping, etc.). A very easy place to relax for a week and hopefully one we can return to again some day.

Didn't want to leave!!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time. It was very secluded and peaceful yet we were close to everything. The pool area was awesome and had a new screen room that kept away the insects. We saw some wild turkeys wandering through the yard in the mornings. Loved the grill and games that were available. Very short drive to the beach or the outlet mall. I certainly hope we are able to take advantage of this rental again in the future.

Fun place for family of 4 (kids aged 9 and 11)

  • 4 of 5

We had a great 5 nights at this cool log cabin, a fun and quite unusual new years eve. It is very quiet (really in the woods) with 2 great screened porches for viewing wildlife, BBQ, dinner and relaxing on the hammock. We saw some great birds and deer but I beleieve there are all sorts of wildlife. It is a 20 minute drive to the beach and we loved the area. There is a great Italian and Sushi/japanese steakhouse a short drive away which we enjoyed and a large grocery store and pharmacy etc . You can have pizza delivered but we didn't. We slept upstairs in the open plan double master suite and we had one child in the small double downstairs and the other one slept on one of the sofabeds in the family room. There is also a sofabed on the screened porch. I describe this layout as it was perfect for us but may not be for all ages of children or groups. The kitchen had all expected items. We were met by Mindy at a mutually convenient time, who showed us how everything worked and where it was and recommended stores and restaurantsetc.
