We stayed at a Stone's Throw for one night while coming back from the islands. The location of the B&B is amazing - the building is set high up on a cliff and it boasts a pretty spectacular view of the ocean. This being said there were what seemed like 2000 stone and wooden steps (probably more like 150) to... More

My husband and I stayed here on the last night of our honeymoon. We knew we'd be sad to leave so we thought we'd splurge on a fancy hotel. It did not disappoint. We arrived well before our check in time but the concierge graciously let us into our room anyway. She even gave us a complimentary bottle of wine... More

We stayed just 1-night as a stopover between flights as it is just 10 mins from the airport. The staff were very friendly and the evening meal was very nice. However..... there are a HUGE number of steep steps to climb to the reception and rooms. The bedroom was ok and the bed was very comfortable, but there were 'shutters'... More

Not oceanfront however you can walk down the hill cross the road and there's the ocean but w a high tide during the day there isn't much sand to lay out . Nirvana beach is not that far still need transportation by busboy taxi .... More

The staff was amazing and very accommodating. The bed-and-breakfast was clean, quiet, and quaint. It is a perfect couples getaway; only a short walk to the bus stop where you can catch the 10 or 12 bus to either go into downtown Nassau or over to Nirvana beach.

Found the construction was actually from the collonial age, but it's a recently built vintage collonial age building! Charming and amazing! Good bed and fully equipped bedrooms, on top of a hill and excelllent views. Perfect for romantic nights!

This place is an excellent choice. Marcie was very helpful, she helped me put together a surprise amenity. Ocean view rooms come with a semi-private balcony. Breakfast was good, but it took a long time to prepare, so order it as soon as you get down, then get your coffee and cold cuts. Overall very pleasant and memorable stay.

Sadly I didn't have the opportunity to stay at this lovely hotel (yet) but I did have breakfast here and it was absolutely gorgeous and I honestly think the ambiance made the salmon and crème cheese taste so much better. It is a lovely hotel, breathe taking view and so romantic. I did see inside the rooms and the rustic... More
