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.

This is absolutely not one of the many identical cookie-cutter hotels found elsewhere on the island. The building itself is a beautiful, colonial style house on top of a hill with great views over the ocean from some of the rooms and the terrace where breakfast is served. A

This is a charming boutique hotel lying very close to the airport, but surprisingly not affected by aircraft noise. The hotel has all the basic amenities and the complimentary continental breakfast was particularly good. The hotel offers a limited menu for dinner, but there are

Good nights' sleep. Room layout a bit odd but comfortable (behind front desk, basically). One draw back is that there is a long stairway to climb just to get to the front desk. Their man is happy to carry luggage up (thank goodness) but it is not for handicapped or unfit

Perfectly located close to Nassau airport this small boutique hotel is so charming, has a wonderful friendly and helpful staff, very nicely furnished rooms and is definitely good for more than an overnight stay as it’s located close to town and within sight of the ocean! Thank

Thanks for choosing A Stone's Throw Away to spend your anniversary with us. For all our honeymooners and anniversary guest we try our best to offer a complimentary dinner from our menu, breakfast or a bottle of wine send to the room. Sometimes the buses runs to Nirvana beach/Love beach not very frequently, cost on the bus is $1.50 per person/per trip, proximate time driving is 5 minutes on the bus.. Another way from the hotel to Nirvana beach is walking, a nice morning or afternoon it take around 20 - 25 minutes. Cab fare from the hotel to Nirvana beach is $10.00 one way. Nirvana beach is a great spot for snorkeling and is one of the most beautiful beach in Nassau. On the beach you can rent snorkeling gears, beach umbrella and beach chairs, and another good thing about visiting Nirvana beach there is a snack restaurant and a bar for any type of beverages. Cheers.

Is there a charge for shuttle/ride to the airport? Reviews are mixed on this.
Due to the layout changes made at Nassau's International Airport we no longer provide a shuttle service to/from the Airport. Once you exit the arrival area at Nassau's International Airport, you will note the taxi stand. Have one of the friendly taxi drivers transfer you to our Hotel. The trip is 5-7 minutes from the Airport to the Hotel. The current cost is approximately $15.00 - $18.00 per trip (dependent upon luggage and number of guests). Reminder to advise the Hotel of your arrival details so that we may greet you at the Hotel's entrance gate and assist with luggage to the Reception area (2nd floor) and then onto your room. We look forward to you visiting our property.

How far away is the beach? Is it walking distance?
BEACHES: There are lots of options for beaches. Just 5 minutes away from the Hotel is a public beach. There are parts that are quite rocky and further along you can find nice sandy areas to relax or swim. Love Beach or Nirvana Beach: is a private beach that can be accessed if you are a guest of ASTA. This is a 20 minute walk from the Hotel. Here you can rent loungers, purchase cool drinks and cocktails to relax along this pristine stretch of beach. If you are already heading into the 'downtown/bay street' area - you will pass either Goodman's Bay beach; Saunders beach or Arawak Cay beach. Please do not hesitate to ask our Front Desk staff to assist with making a selection that fits your vacation needs.

"Ocean view room (room 7) had large mostly-private balcony and spectacular views"
"Ocean view rooms are upstairs, suites are downstairs. We had a garden view on the main floor, and we were happy."
"Worth paying extra for sea view"
"The suites are the best, but there are only 10 rooms on the entire property."
"Ocean view rooms have views of the ocean from balcony"
$215 - $357 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
