Not a whole lot to go on, but yeah, Xamarin would be the best bet.

As with all things, iOS still needs a Mac to be built and signed so don't forget that.

You can, but iOS requires an honest to god Mac to compile/sign/etc. Also Apple charges 99/year for 'Apple Developer Program'.

Android no problem to build on windows and deploy from there. Apple you can develop on windows but need that mac in the loop.
