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

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!!!!

We stayed at "a stone's throw away" for 5 nights in May ...we couldn't ask for more: it is elegant but sober, very clean, the staff is very helpful and smiling and the atmosphere as well the view from the terrace is Amazing!

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
