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 U.S. Virgin Islands

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.

Had a great stay, the seclusion of the property was fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

The property was a great getaway and the location in the jungle was superb from getting away from all the daily grind. And we loved playing with the dogs everyday, Tipp and Chase especially were very friendly and lovable. And Winn does an amazing job of making your stay as comfortable as possible with having everything you would need to either stay at home and relax or go to the beach for the day. Had a great time, thanks.

Island hideaway close to everything

  • 5 of 5

Loved this amazing property and all that Win has done to make it feel “like a home away from home”. She is so kind and helpful. Beautiful grounds, swimming pool, just about anything you’d need to explore the beaches. Would definitely recommend staying in any of these cottages. We loved it!

Simply Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Win was the perfect hostess, extremely hospitable and kind. She makes everyone that enters her eutopia feel welcome, at ease and at home. I didn’t want to leave, but unfortunately had to return back to the states to the “rat race” way of life. The grounds, property, and cottages are very well kept and maintained. The pool is lovely and relaxing, and Win offers you a taste of the great beer her son makes in the Leatherback Brewery. Estate Little Fountain truly offers a genuine STX experience, which I hope and pray doesn’t get watered down by all of the state-siders coming to live on this beautiful authentic island. Thank you Win for sharing the fascinating story behind your property and I hope to return soon!
