Great spot!

  • 5 of 5

All of the other reviews nailed it. This is a beauftiful spot and Win couldn't be nicer or more helpful. We stayed at the Hibiscus cottage and it was great. The only thing that wasn't perfect was the water pressure was off so it took forever to wash dishes. I loved the outdoor shower, lounging by the pool and playing with Win's dogs. You absolutely must have a car to stay here as you will 20 minutes from each town. Wonderful vacation and I would stay here again in a New York minute.

Lovely cottage in a Stunning Setting

  • 5 of 5

We spent a few days in Hibiscus Cottage and highly recommend it. Very clean and just what we needed for our stay. The cottage is set among tropical plants and trees to explore at your leisure.

We did not do any cooking but the kitchen has everything you need if you wish to do so. We had breakfast at the cottage and then set off for the day at one of the many beaches close by. Every evening we had a swim in the heated pool to end the day. You will not be disappointed if you choose to stay here.

We stayed in this cottage for a month, while looking for a long term rental. It could not have been more perfect for us. Win was very friendly and literally thought of everything. I really liked the laundry facility onsite, the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. The area was quiet and relaxing after long days of house hunting. Very important is that it was pet friendly!!! Thank you Win for everything.

We had a great stay! Hibiscus cottage is cute and clean and the location is conveniently near Cane Bay, Salt River and Christiansted. Win is very accommodating and helpful. She has lots of beach gear and bikes for guests to use. We look forward to returning in the future!

Comfortable, cozy cottage in a lush, tropical setting.

  • 5 of 5

My stay in the Hibiscus cottage was perfect. Win is very welcoming and makes you feel at home. Since my friends stayed in another cottage, we would gather at the pool for a late afternoon swim after spending the day snorkeling off of one of the many beaches of St. Croix. Hibiscus is a great place in which to stay!
