About Win Welsh

I have lived in St. Croix since 1974. I love it here and this property is wonderful. I am a retired landscaper on the island . Now I just mountain bike, hike and look after my guests.

Win Welsh purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Win Welsh chose USVI/St. Croix

I bought this property in 2004 and it was a mess! I have put my heart and soul in the property and it is the most relaxing, tropical place to be.

What makes this cottage unique

The property is private, relaxing, and totally tropical. It is what a Caribbean island home should be. Pick your own passion fruit,breadfruit,avocado, papaya and bananas when in season. Go out and pick your herbs for bush tea in the morning. Hike up to the top of the mountain if you are up to it or just sit by the heated pool and relax with a good book.

Serene Rainforest Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have asked for better place to stay. It felt like a home away from home, and we were sad to leave. Winn welcomed us the first day and was helpful with everything. Pool area very relaxing. Seemed cottage was located in a perfect and convenient location, since nothing was more than 30 minutes away. If we came back to St. Croix, we would come back to Winn's cottages!

Great property

We stayed here for the entire month of May. The host was amazing and the property was clean and located in beautiful jungle. Definitely one of the best places on the island.

Already miss the cottage!

  • 5 of 5

The mango cottage along with Winn were beyond awesome! I've only been back from vacation for one day and I already miss the outdoor shower and all of Winns super sweet pups. I'll be returning hopefully sooner rather than later for a more extended stay with Winn soon!

Lovely rainforest retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This was quite simply one of the best vacations we have taken to a tropical location. The Mango cottage is just adorable. Perfect for two people and such a nice spacious kitchen! We were so confortable there. The bedroom and living room area has a/c. We never really needed it except at night in the bedroom. The deck off the back is perfect for breakfast "al fresco" and cocktails by moonlight. Win is a great hostess. Available if needed but laid back and we just did our own thing! She has 4 dogs (totally awesome) and two cats. We loved having them come for visits to our cottage. Chase, her trail dog, showed us the way to Mt. Eagle one day. Such a sweetie!! The pool is a wonderful break after a day at the beach. She keeps it heated so it's always a comfortable temp! She has snorkel gear and beach chairs to use, yoga mats and noodles for floating too! She has bikes available too. Next time we will take advantage of those. Just can't say enough. We will be back!
