Is the virtual machine on the same network as the host or does is use NAT?

VirtualBox has the option to add the share from the host system. Have you had any issues with it?

Also, is there particular reason for not using QEMU/KVM (via Gnome Boxes) or virt-manager? Virtual Machine manager has the option to mount Filesystem, so that might be handy for you.
