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.

Great property

  • 5 of 5

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!

We loved staying here. The property was gorgeous and the house was very comfortable. The house had everything we needed, clean, and private. Win is great, and very helpful. Can't wait to stay here again.

Camping but better

  • 4 of 5

Peaceful, private, relaxing environment. Win Welch is the ideal hostess, very helpful and being a life resident knows everything about the island. Cane Bay beach is ten minutes away and was the most perfect beach. The cabins are well maintained and have everything you could need. Great place to de-stress. Centrally located on the island, every place was within a half hour drive.

An amazing property!!

  • 4 of 5

The place we laid our heads each night was one of the most beautiful landscapes we saw! Truley a tropical paradise; the lush landscape is hard to pull away from. The pool area is so nice, clean, deep enough to dive, and a relaxation area that is comfortable and offers the opportunity to grill, watch television, enjoy a meal. The efficiency is small but has everything you need; we especially enjoyed cooking meals in the outdoor kitchen. There are also great ammenities like coolers, backpacks, swim floats and more for day use. An ice machine, filtered well water (no need to buy bottled water), and laundry facilities better than what we had in any of our other accommodations - all powered with solar energy. Win is a welcoming host and ready with good information for us to enjoy our stay. We were fortunate to be in St. Croix for the annual aggreicultural fair, a great opportunity to try all kinds of local foods, hear music and experience island culture. St. Croix has great landscape variation - arrid and dry East, to tropical rain forrest in the West. Point Udall is a must see and Cramer Park a great stop while at that end. Christansted is rich with history, Cane bay beach gorgeous, and perhaps our best beach day - just North of Fredreriksted peir. Here we rented snorkle gear and had the most amazing underwater experience of all the USVI - swam with a sea turtle, saw fish of every color, live coral and no one else to bump into! They also serve good food, Freedom punch, island music, and a skateboard feature - something for everyone! We would definately come back, a great value.

Car: necessary

The efficiency is located in a tropical 11 acre private estate. It is very lush and private. 5 minutes from the best diving area, Cane Bay. it is located mid island so that you are not far from anything. Airport is 10 minutes away. Hiking trails from you doorstep, bikes available. Private pool surrounded by lush vegetation.
