We loved staying at Win’s! She has a collection of cottages on the property, we stayed in Flamboyant. The interior was as described and very comfortable. All the cottages share the heated pool (which was SO nice) but it never felt crowded when we were there. Win’s 4 dogs are awesome. The grounds are spectacular - so lush, beautiful, tastefully done yet keeping a sense of wild, and you can tell that she has put a lot of love and energy into making the property that way for years. There are 2 washers & 2 dryers in the shared building along with tons of other stuff for guests to use - beach chairs, snorkel gear, filtered water, an ice machine, etc. We enjoyed ourselves so much while we were there and will definitely be back.
Words cannot describe how beautiful this place was. Beautiful, spectacular, peaceful, friendly. Everything you would ever need/want on vacation - including home brew herb tea and brewery beer at pool side. Win is a wonderful host. Definitely would only stay with Win on a return visit.
Win's Botanical Garden
What a lovely cottage and lovely setting! Win's cottages (there are 8 on the property in addition to Win's and her son's family) are not fancy but are clean, private, and comfortable with all the needed amenities. Each cottage has been nestled into the surrounding lush foliage and plantings. Her plantings around the property are lovely--we particularly enjoyed the orchids strategically placed around the (warm) swimming pool. Staying here made our vacation particularly memorable.
The outside shower was unusual but quite nice; I suspect that it is quite practical from a maintenance perspective. It is actually very nice to shower in a very private setting among all the trees and foliage, with very happy bromeliads below! It is best to shower when the sun is shining and there isn't too much breeze, however. We had anticipated that having to share the laundry facilities would be a hassle but they were only steps away and were always available when we needed them. We greatly appreciated having ready access to de-ionized water as the tap water is potable but very hard.
We will be back for sure.
Winn went above and beyond to make sure our trip started off on the right foot! When we were having challenges with our car rental (we used a company in Christiansted and had to pick up our car in town) and it was getting close to 6pm, Win called to check on us and drove into town to lead us back to the property - she did not want us to get lost in an unfamiliar area. Little Fountain is well-located and you can get to anywhere on St. Croix easily from there, but you do need a car. The property is like a botanical garden and absolutely lovely. The cottage was clean, the beds comfortable, the outside shower was unique and refreshing!. There are always clean towels, filtered water, beach equipment, ice, bikes, etc available in the 'mushroom house' mid- property - along with washer and dryer! The pool is great and offers a nice place for some morning or afternoon relaxation. The nearest beach is only two miles away. Win is available for questions and recommendations 24/7, but she lets you do your thing. We absolutely recommend people stay there - and bring some dog treats for her four sweeties that wander around and greet you sometimes at the pool or along the paths.
Beautiful property.!!! Will come back again very soon wish I could of booked a stay for February
Peaceful get away, terrific mid-island location with lots of amenities.
My husband and I returned to this property for our 32nd wedding anniversary vacation. We first visited for our 30th and couldn't wait to return. Win is a wonderful host and the property is awesome. It is up in the mountains on the rain forest side of the island. It is convenient to the beaches and shopping. The property is a quiet get away with hiking trails, a pool, onsite laundry, and beautiful cottages. The addition of the poolside beer taps was a lovely surprise! I would highly recommend a vacation at this property to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation spot.
This cottage is located mid-island so that you are never far from any part of the island. Hiking, swimming,snorkeling and scuba diving are just minutes away
