I stayed at Stone's Throw out of necessity- I traveled to Nassau from a family island to visit a dr. for my sick daughter, and we had to stay overnight unexpectedly. I needed a place to stay that wouldn't break the bank (e.g. the Hilton or in Atlantis), and we managed to find A Stone's Throw Away. For the quality,... More

The building and location are great, however the service is no where near what $200/night that they charge. To put that into perspective, I emailed in advance to say that I would arrive at 10:30 at night. They responded no problem. Unfortunately, it was a problem, as there was no one to answer the door and I had to wait... More

When we started our search for a place to stay I wanted quiet, relaxing, no children and romantic. I got all off the above. I was pleased with the location in regards to the airport. In regards to downtown it was a but far but the buses picked up regularly for $1.50 no matter where you got on or off.... More

My daughter and I stayed here on our trip from Exuma to Nassau. We were to leave Nassau very early the next morning and let me tell you first and foremost that the best thing about this B&B is the fact that it is fantastically close to the airport - I'm talking within 5 minutes [if that?!] of the airport....

The staff is kind and sweet. The drinks are great. And the view.....wow. We had the patio to ourselves for sunset and it felt like a porch at home. Cozy couches we moved where we wanted to enjoy privacy and sunset. Very romantic and relaxing. A must visit in the Bahamas. No jet ski buzzing!!!!

A Stones Throw is a gem west of Nassau. A gem with poor management, I´m afraid. It is a charmig house with a lot of really cool furniture. I really like the style. But that does not help. The place feels worn out all over, broken glass in the windows, broken sunloungers, dirty cushions and actually dirty all over. If... More

A Stone's Throw Away is a delightful old Colonial style building in a quiet area even though it is quite near the airport. There are about 50 steps up from the road entrance to reception but this added to the charm. Help is available with luggage although the bell at the entrance brought no response.Our room was comfortable and had... More

Don't go ever Bad people and bad treatment not the way to treat people. No one would speak to us they just took us in a taxi to another hotel and said "call back in the morning". Nothing else. Really? I travel all over the world and never had this happen since a hotel that has now gone out of... 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
