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

Really? I travel all over the world and never had this happen since a hotel that has now gone out of... More

A Stone's Throw Away is absolutely beautiful. It reminds me of a former plantation home. But the joy stopped there. One big positive is The Travelers Restaurant within walking distance. The staff, location, food and views from the restaurant made up for our disappointment at A Stones Throw Away. It is out in the middle of nowhere. The beach is... More

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

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
