I think it's not that simple using NAT.

In my opinion the best solution for your situation is to set up an ftp server on the guest and access it via windows explorer or any ftp client from the host. To do that you will need to set up NAT port forwarding for the desired ftp port: http://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch06.html#natforward
