About the property

1 bedroom and 1 bath private cottage with pool,close to scuba diving and beach

Located on 11 acre private estate with pool. Washer dryer included. Lush vegetation and pet friendly. WIFI included. Has generator. This cottage is loved by everyone. It is very private and very comfortable for a vacation. Hiking trails right out the back door and diving and beaches only a short distance away. Centrally located on St.Croix, nothing is very far away. An ice machine with cooler and beach chairs makes it easy to take a day at the beach.

Why Win Welsh chose USVI/St. Croix

This property is like going to a lush island with the rain forest all around you. Go to sleep with the sounds of the rain forest and wake up with the sounds of the rain forest. Hike up Blue Mountain without even having to get in the car.

Best part of our trip

  • 5 of 5

We came to St. Croix to stay on a liveaboard for a week and do a bunch of diving. I thought that would be the highlight of the trip but I was wrong-- staying at Win's was the best! We followed up our liveaboard with 4 nights in the Hibiscus Cottage. What a wonderful location with every amenity you need to relax. The grounds are beautiful and we loved swimming in the pool each evening. Win has created a special place-- it's so nice of her to share!

Our all time best vacation rental. One of the most beautiful places I've ever seen. Win goes above and beyond to make you comfortable and happy. Highly recommend Win and her cottages. If we return to St. Croix, we would not consider staying anywhere else

excellent location and lots of space

  • 5 of 5

Win is a helpful, friendly hostess and her property has a beautiful garden-like setting, a clean spacious cottage with outside deck

(which we used daily), and plant-surrounded swimming pool. Very easy and comfortable to come home to after each fun filled day!

Excellent Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a relaxing and private place to stay, this is it! The cottages are beautiful and very clean. The property is very lush and gorgeous with beautiful landscaping. The owner Win is very friendly and helpful.She is a wonderful source for local information and where to go on the island. A great place to stay for a great rate. There is a wonderful pool on the property and hiking trails all around. The location is perfect because it is in the middle of the island and you can easily go to either Frederiksted or Christiansted-plus wonderful beaches are just down the hill. Win provides beach chairs, coolers, and towels for your beach trips. If you don't want to go anywhere, you can stay right on the property and not leave because the cottages have full kitchens plus outside grills are also provided. There are grocery stores and department stores nearby if you need anything for your stay. We definitely will be coming back to stay here and recommending it to all our friends.

I Loved the Lush Tropical Grounds 🌴☀️

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Win's Hibiscus Cottage for seven days, Win is the Best!!! The house was immaculate, it had everything you need for a great vacation. I loved the Beautiful Tropical setting. We arrived late to the cottage, on the counter was a really nice note, some soup and a couple of beers in the fridge :) It's nice to travel to an unknown area and be welcomed so generously by the owner. Thank you Win for a great place to stay, it really was Paradise.

Wonderful cabin on a wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property and perfect in every way! A great pool! Handy washer and dryer availability and ice machine along with beach chairs and towels and snorkeling gear. Win is great with info and very easy going and she has the nicest and cutest dogs! Her cabins are almost in the middle of the island and perfect to drive to anywhere on the island. I highly recommend staying with Win and one of her cabins, we hope to stay with her again sometime.
