The hotel is a close proximity to the airport so you can use it as a convenient stopover. There are ALOT of stairs to maneuver as we stayed on the top floor in the larger suite. So if you have more than just one or two bags it's a bit of a climb from street level to the top room,... More

Stayed one night on route to The Exumas. Our Garden Room was very quiet and comfortable, and offered at a reasonable price. We enjoyed Dinner and Music at Travelers Rest...an easy walk to the restaurant, not so easy walking back. They had music and we were delighted with the Beachfront view and friendly staff. The staff at ASTA is very... More

Beautiful old building on a nice property overlooking the sea. So close to the airport. Nice residential neighbourhood to wander in, although we did take the #10 public bus (bus stops about 100' away) over to Nassau and Fish fry area and it took about 20 min each way. Everyone there was pleasant and accommodating and the other guests were... More

We stayed two nights at A Stone's Throw Away in February 2014. The grounds are beautiful and well kept. Our garden facing room was very nice with a patio door that opened onto a balcony. We did not get an "orientation" upon check in so we were unsure about a few things including breakfast time and how the honor bar... More

My wife and I stayed here in February of 2014. Here are my thoughts: Staff: Everyone was fantastic and friendly. We enjoyed our communications with everyone and felt very welcomed the entire time we were there. A couple of times we ended up just chatting with them at night while enjoying some drinks and had some wonderful conversations. - Collyn... More

We only had 3 days in Nassau and a Stone's throw away made it perfectly romantic getaway. The environment is serene, at times no one else was around. The service was exceptional. . We had a terribly romantic valentines dinner poolside, but unsure of the cost as we never saw a receipt. The room was comfortable and simple. We were... More

I came here for a few nights with a good travel buddy of mine a couple weeks ago and had such a great experience. Everyone here was friendly and the service is exceptional. (HI PATRICE!!) It's a gorgeous property and you definitely come here to get away from the tourist-saturated, cruise ship monstrosities that make up downtown Nassau. We used... More

My partner and I stayed here for 4 nights in February. We were looking for a relaxing, quick getaway, away from all the nonsense you'll experience on Paradise Island. This property provided exactly what we were looking for. It is propped up on a hill, with lots of shrubbery for privacy and a beautiful view of the ocean. The owner... More

We stayed here for one night as a layover to an out island. Perhaps we had a room that was unlike the others (#4) because our experience was nothing like the other reviews. At first glance the B&B is quaint, but upon further experience, it obviously is in need of some TLC. We had two lamps on the wall over... More

We stayed here on a 24-hour layover, en route to elsewhere, and it was perfect. First of all, the idea of staying at a B&B is more appealing to us than at a big resort. A Stone's Throw is a gem! Clean, lovely setting, beautiful view and a 1-block walk to a very private-feeling public beach. You'd walk this far... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
At the west end of New Providence lies an exquisite hideaway. A STONE'S THROW AWAY is perched on one of the highest elevations by the coast. Here our Guests can indulge in a rare panoramic view of Nassau 's land and sea. The scenery boasts the best of the island's natural wonders, from the native pine forest by Lake Killarney to the brim of the coral reefs that protect the glimmering beaches of west Nassau. The property was recently built to echo the traditions of an old Bahamian home: wood floors and wood ceilings, louvered shutters and a large wrap around porch bring the visitors back to a quieter time long ago when the music of the islands could be heard in the whispers of the trade winds. ... more   less
