average rating of 4.8333335 based on 6 reviews

The property is private but convenient to everything on the island.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Bamboo cottage, which is spacious and separated from other cottages. Win will help you find anything you're interested in doing anywhere on the island. She's very knowledgable and helpful, both on her property and about the island. You'll want to rent a car to take full advantage of island life.

I almost didnt want to write this review out of fear that this gem would be discovered by the masses

  • 5 of 5

Win and her crew have put a lot of work into the property and, being born and raised on St. Croix, I can say without a doubt that you'll be hard pressed to find lodging on the island as serene and beautiful with all the amenities that Win provides. The rooms and linens were clean and the finishes throughout the cottage were really better than expected. My favorite part of the property, although I was a little concerned at first about privacy, was the outside shower! Although I would love to keep this place all to myself, I had to write this review and recommend it to others. You wont be disappointed!

True that you can find paradise anywhere on the island, but you can never beat what this place has to offer. My reason for my travel was to attend a funeral and have fun 2 for 1. It was only my mother and myself, my mother decided to stay with family and friends instead. So I had the entire place to myself and enjoyed every bit of it. It was me with quietness and laziness, never feeling lonely. If I could stay here every day, I would be in heaven an spoil. This place has everything I expected to have and more compare to other so called “real hotels on the island” (very sad, do your research). This place made me feel like I was in my own home in TX, with the exception of my family. I had my own private parking, full kitchen, big bedrooms, living room and lots of space. The cottages are not close to each other which give you more privacy. The bathroom is outside which makes it very interesting. No worries it’s safe. Even though the place has a water heater, majority of the time I enjoyed the fresh cold rain water, for some reason it kept my skin feeling soft. This place has lots of characters. If you real pay attention to the place you will be amaze what you learn. I was. So much to do and learn. You just have to be willing to explore. DO NOT BE A COUCH POTATOE! I notice that each cottage are name by a fruit or tree that’s right next to it. I was given some knowledge of the different kinds of fruits. Win Welsh introduce me to a fruit that I will never forget and find very interesting. It is called stinking toe. “Win, I did not make the smoothie but I did the drink.” I had to laugh. I research it and found out stinking toe has a lot of health beneficial. Sorry but I will not tell you about it, because you will just have to experience it yourself. The place also has a real hiking trail you will enjoy. Especially once you reach to the top of the mountain, very beautiful up there. Just make sure you take a bottle of water, a stick for support and your camera. It’s best to go very early in the morning that way you can enjoy the pool or go to the beach afterwards. On some beaches nearby you can enjoy live music and food depending on the day. You can use the water gears, umbrella and chairs Win has on her property at no extra charge. Nothing is far on the island, only the locals say that. Enjoy all the local food and fruits on the island. I plan to come back with my family next time. 100% worth it! Travel 08/19 -08/30/2016. Winn 'till next time yee-haw! O'Myra

Unbelievable vacation at Little Fountain Cottages, St Croix V.I. with Winn Welsh

  • 5 of 5

If you want an adventure in St Croix follow in our footsteps. Jan and I did our homework. There is only one person to stay with. Her name is Winnifred Welsh but everyone calls her Winn. Her place is Little Fountain Cottages. The islanders call her angel, genius and that is true but even more she loves St Croix. With her bare hands, an 80 year old islander named Cowboy and machetes they went into the jungle and she made miracles happen. She has lived on and landscaped much of this island for 46 years. She has raised a family and grandchildren here. When you arrive you immediately feel at home and in safe hands. Judi of St. Croix delivered our rental car right to the door and picked it up at the door. No waiting in lines with them. Winn knows everyone on the island and they love her.

Her 11 acre estate is gorgeous. The landscaping breathtaking...we stayed in the Mahogany cottage. It was perfect with a great 4 poster bed, comfortable couches and a full kitchen with dining inside and out on this porch with lovely views. Her pets are sweet and well behaved. Winn is a really funny character and the hardest working person I have ever met. Cane Bay Beach is only a 10 minute drive

by car and is very nice and sandy. There is an outdoor restaurant called Spratnet Beach Bar and Grill that is fun and right on the beach. We had the best vacation ever. Next time we come down and we will be back again and again we are going to take tours with Prince Taxi and Safari Tours. He has lived here his whole life. Also be sure to ride horses in the ocean with Cowboy Steve Equus Rides. That was the best time. We couldn't stop laughing. My horse reared up out of the water on cue. Cowboy Steve and his assistants gave us a fabulous exciting day on his beautifully trained horses. Great fun.

This trip was the trip of a lifetime. We had a great and very safe vacation with Winn. We just loved her.

Winn, until we meet again we will have such fond memories and pictures.

Lost in Paradise! Wonderful Stay!!

  • 4 of 5

We absolutely loved the Mahogany cottage. It was comfortable and had everything we needed.

The grounds are beautiful and well kept. It is up the mountain and the driveway is steep, we wished

we had rented a Jeep instead of car. Wynn has all kinds of extras including, water, chairs, cooler, ice, washer and

dryer and detergent. Loved the island and the beaches. You can go to any resort and pay a small fee

for use of pool or a chair. We like the Renaissance and the Buckaneer. Cane Bay beach was our favorite

and is near by. If this is your first visit make sure to get good directions. We were directionally challenged and were

lost half the time but finally got the hang of life in the left lane. The cottage is a bargain and we would go

again in a red hot minute!

Ten Stars Out of Five

  • 5 of 5

This exquisite cottage in the rain forest is well appointed and furnished beautifully. Don't let the 'Rain Forest Cottage" description fool you, we have stayed all over the world, and the accommodations are first class.

It is clean and comfortable and sits on 11 acres of heaven in the middle of paradise.

The sounds of the rain forest are like an intoxicating lullaby, the breezes morning and night are wonderful and even in high summer we never had to use the air conditioners once. The owner/hostess, Win Welsh, has been living on St Croix for many years, she has an extensive knowledge of the island, is a great resource, and is happy to share that with her guests. If you are a mountain biker (or would love to try it) you will be revved to learn that Win and her group of mountain bikers maintain a set of mountain bike trails. Hikers will love it too. The estate is practically at the center of the island so it is convenient for us as we travel the entire island, diving and hiking during our stay. Linda loves best the cottages outdoor shower, the pool and the beautiful landscaping and privacy you get with each cottage. We highly recommend this property and the owner for a unique and enjoyable stay in St. Croix. We will be coming back soon and often.
