A Stones Throw Away is right next to the airport. Pick up service from the hotel was free and was there waiting for us. We choose this location after seeing the reviews and wishing to be out of town and away from the cruise boat crowd. We are sooooo happy with our choice. We read a lot of reviews prior...

Very nice appearance/ambiance, but lacking in many simple areas. Service person was disgruntled, unprofessional, and unaccomodating. They said they were serving dinner when I made the reservation, but they gave chef the night off! We were there with another couple, had to walk to a mediocre local restaurant, very disappointing. Air conditioner in room dripped large amounts of water in...

If your looking to avoid the tourists and just relax with a good book, this is the place. The rooms are updated and clean. We spent 5 nights in early May. Our room was an balcony oceanview room. The view was breathtaking. The entire staff was more than helpful and the breakfast was above average. In addition to the normal...

This is a great place to stay while you are in the Bahamas. It sits on the West side of the island away from the craziness of downtown. It is very close to the airport (NAS) but you are not bothered by the sight or sound of planes going by. One bonus of being so close is that they have...

This was an amazing bed and breakfast and great for a getaway for a young couple. It was a little far from downtown Nassau and doesn't have its own private beach, however it is a short walk from Love beach and a 20 minute bus ride (Bus costs 1.50 each way, pay when you get out!) from downtown Nassau. The...

Quiet hotel, comfortable, old colonial style comfort. Close to the airport. Make sure you have a bottle of water for the room though, we couldnt drink the tap water.

We stayed at A Stone's Throw Away for five nights in February. Although only built on it's hilltop location a few years ago, the Colonial style guest house looks to date from the 1800's. We enjoyed our stay there and our comfortable, ocean facing bedroom had french windows opening onto a very wide balcony (deck) which had a day bed...

My wife chose A Stone's Throw Away for our Daughter's wedding in Nassau. We did not want to stay at a name brand hotel or resort because of this being "Spring Break". No offense to the spring breakers. We found A Stone's Throw to be a wonderful B&B that offered all the adminities of a larger hotel. Breakfast cooked to...

My husband and I stayed at A Stone's Throw Away for one night on our way to the Out Islands. It was a great place to ease into the Bahamas. The location was beautiful - the inn is built into a hill, so the views of the ocean were breathtaking. We had a room at the back of inn, so...

My husband and I spent one night at A Stone's Throw Away before departing for Eleuthera. ASTA is close to the airport and is just perfect for stopover stays, it's a beautiful old colonial building that has been lovingly restored and furnished with a very relaxed air about it. Our room was clean and very comfortable - just what was...

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
