About Win Welsh

I have been on the island since 1975. I owned a landscaping company and love this island. I was raised in Philadelphia Pennsylvania.

Win Welsh purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Win Welsh chose Estate Little Fountain

It is my own paradise.

What makes this cottage unique

This is the most private,lush and beautiful place on the island. It is landscaped beautifully and has the feel of the rain forest. I have many hiking trails on the property. You do not even need to get in the car to go hiking through the woods and along the mountain roads.

Words are not enough

B/F and I stayed at Win's place for four nights in January for our pre-move visit to St. Croix. It was amazing how mother nature is rebuilding and it's still gorgeous. Win has a beautiful property with every amentity and some! We immediately fell in love with our cottage. All you need is a few groceries and your bathing suit. We can't wait to return and will stay again and again. Thank you Win!

Best experience ever!

  • 5 of 5

I visited St. Croix in the aftermath of Irmaria. Win's place was spared much damage beyond the beautiful plants being hurt. Generators ran from five a.m. to ten a.m. and anywhere from three to five p.m. to ten p.m. Had Internet and Netflix when power was on and was able to do the work I do during those times. The cottage had every amenity I could ask for. Bed and pillows were dreamy. The coqui frogs singing at night was heaven sent!

Her place is absolutely stunning. The cottage was way more than I needed, and I got some serious time to relax.

As a person visiting with a wish to return to the VI, Win and her friends were an incredibly valuable asset. There is a wonderful sense of community staying at her place. I can't imagine staying anywhere else!

Thank you, Win! And thank you, friend Milo, for the tour!

I'll be back!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Husband and I stayed in this rental recently. The cottage is great, comfortable, and clean. It was nice having a fully equipped kitchen and TV. We enjoyed the outdoor shower. The pool was refreshing. The location is beautiful and lush. Win is a most excellent hostess and definitely went out of her way to make our stay great. Everything about this place is A+. We highly recommend this cottage and renting with Win. We would definitely stay again.

Great host, great location, amenities included

  • 5 of 5

Win was a great host! She gave us lots of suggestions and advice. Laundry is included, aloe plants grow abundantly (for those who sunburn easily), filtered water is available in the community/supply house. Ice cold AC. The outdoor shower was so tropical! The grounds are beautiful! Four nice dogs and a fluffy, nice cat roam around. The hills are very steep!!! We were very grateful to have our SUV. Might be difficult if you rent a sedan.

She allowed us to bring our cats which was a huge reason for booking her. We just kept on top of sweeping the litter (couldn't find a vacuum) and it was fine.
