We made a reservation about a month ago through Expedia, pre-paid by credit card, The day of arrival I called numerous times to check on dinning options. At first no one answered the phone. Later the phone was always busy. The hotel is on a bit of a quiet and dark street. When we arrived at 8:30 the place was... More

Dear Guest, the incident sounds indeed bizarre and we never got notified by yourself, the Orange Hill or Expedia that you were not able to access our property. We have received no email, note or phone call. If it ends up to be a verified complaint we would definitively reimburse the room night. Please contact us via email at info@astonesthrowaway.com...

Marcie the receptionist, office manager, housekeeper, is a Caribbean Jewel as are the other staff members. The Hotel is built in the traditional rustic Island Style but it is only 10 years old I found out. So it has all of the modern conveniences. Really fast wifi everywhere. Great locations, you can even walk to or from the airport if... More

My husband and I stayed at A Stone's Throw Away in January 2015. This is a really charming in with beautiful views out over the ocean. It is not beachfront, but close to the water in a nice quiet area. Theoretically, this hotel is in the flight path of the airport, but I was never bothered by that and didn't... More

Excellent choice for your final night or two on Nassau. It's super close to the airport (noise overhead during the day), filled with old-world charm and friendly folk. We loved the breezy decks all around and filled with comfy lounge chairs, the nice pool with water feature, the honor bar and library. The room was basic, clean and fairly comfortable.... More

We had an oceanfront room from December 25-January 2, 2015, and we loved every minute of it. This B&B is located in the more upscale part of the island, in a more residential area, so if you want an atmosphere like the Atlantis, this is not for you. However, if you want be walking distance from Love/Nirvana Beach, and like... More

The hotel was superb and my boyfriend absolutely loved it. The Oceanview room was fantastic. The bathrooms were not in the best condition and there was a mix up with our reservation but it was overall a great stay.

A Stone's Throw Away is a charming little hotel with only 10 rooms and is in the traditional Bahamian style, located about 10 minutes drive from the airport and close to the beach in a quite area outside of the main town. The staff in the hotel are extremely friendly and always willing to help whenever they are able including... More

Lovely property, staff, in a quite part of Nassau, new providence island. Located near quiet, sandy beaches, perfect for divers as it is close to Stuart's cove, which has the monopoly on the best dive sites and in my opinion abuse it.....With perfect grounds,, sweeping ocean sunrises, high end patio, garden furniture, the attention to visual details so well done...

I guess "quaint," laid-back, and out-of-the-way are the best adjectives to describe this old, intimate country mansion-type hotel. There are no elevators. The climb starts in a cave-like atmosphere up through the rock on which the hotel was built. When you come out into the open air, you would be tempted to think that you had arrived at the lobby...

i did not actually stay there, but arranged a multiple day meeting there for my work. We were able to get a tour of the property and see most or all of the guest rooms. Note that they are all different, so it would be helpful to know what you are getting when you make the reservation. It is a... More
