First let me get out of the way the most positive thing about this place, THE VIEW, it is beautiful!! Having said that now I will review the property itself. Upon our arrival we noticed that the entrance was on the street level at the bottom of a HUGE set of stairs. After walking up the stairs to get to... More

We just booked this for a layover prior to flying out of Nassau the following morning, as it is very convenient to the airport. So, with no real expectations we were pleasantly surprised by the location, the friendly service, charming rooms, quality meals and beautiful ocean views. It's out of the hustle of down town Nassau.

My wife and I are not too keen on the big box type resorts so we selected A Stone's Throw Away for our Anniversary Week get away over the 4th of July weekend. What a wonderful choice, the room, the atmosphere, service and price far exceeded our expectations. This was our first trip to the Bahamas and we were not... More

Great drinks and dinner here. I loved the street access through a limestone tunnel up stairs to the outside dining area. The food is great, well prepared and presented. The floor above has beautiful settees to relax in.

We needed somewhere to stay quickly when we missed our connecting flight to the outer islands. This place was recommended to us. We were travelling with children aged 3 and 7. They had a room ready for us in 15 minutes. Okay there are a lot of stairs, but someone carried everything for us up and down. We had a... More

Quiet bed & breakfast close to airport, beach & restaurants. Perfect for couples & honeymooners wanting a quiet, relaxed side of the island. They make you feel like family. 3 story structure on a high cliff overlooking the ocean. Cool breezes & a pool. Beach is quiet , we had it to ourselves one day.

I had to stay over one night before going to out islands. Had ocean view room (#8) which had beautiful view. Room opened onto spacious wrap around balcony with a large day bed to relax in. Room was exceptionally clean and comfortable. The pool area is tropical and it was relaxing just watching large variety of colorful birds that shared... More

I wasn't impressed. It is an old colonial home, transformed into a boutique hotel. Has a lot of charming elements, but when taken it total, it misses the mark. Service was slow, they only had one person as far as we could tell who was manager, concierge, waiter, reservation agent, and bus boy. Very pleasant guy, but could not possibly... More

NIce room - very clean, but noise from other rooms a little bothersome. Still, pleasant place with good staff. Our plane was early so no breakfast to review, just coffee, which was a godsend. Complimentary water would be a nice addition.
