What a wonderful find....I almost don't want people to know about it. A hidden gem on away from the hustle-bustle of the cruise ship ravaged Nassau. It's a quick 8-minute cab ride from the airport and our cab driver stopped at a local grocery store and liquor store to allow us to pick up a few things before dropping us...

I recently stayed for 4 days while scuba diving! The place grew on me the longer that I stayed! May have grown to 5 stars if I stayed a few days longer... very relaxing! Stair alert! Over 60 stairs from the street to the reception! And some rooms are up from there! Beautiful view once you mount the hill! Worth...

I don't know what to say about this hotel... It started out really well: the check-in went smoothly with a very nive staff, the view over the ocean from the main terrace is really beautifull, and our room was lovely. But then we gave them our laundry... When I got our cloth back, the guy who had handled it (Michael)...

This is a great little spot, tucked away on the top of a limestone cliff near the historic Gambier Village on the west end of New Providence Island. A boutique hotel, it has ten comfortable rooms with luxurious baths (featuring great tubs and showers) and complimentary wi-fi. They offer breakfast and dinner (we did not try the dinner, but the...

This is an adorable little Inn/Bed and Breakfast. Arrived late at night past check in and the gentleman at the desk offered to wait for our arrival. We entered through a locked gate and climbed many stone steps to the top of the hill where the reception/bar was located. The breeze off the ocean was wonderful. After check in we...

Only minutes from the airport, A Stone's Throw Away is the ideal and convenient spot stay on your next trip to Nassau. The scenery is amazing as you overlook the ocean from the main entrance/dining area. It appears to be more of a Bed and Breakfast than a Resort, but this does not take away from the property. The check...

As I said not a resort, but a Bed and Breakfast. For my purpose it was close to the airport which was good. You have to climb three flights of stairs to the lobby which normally would not be a problem, but I had a very bad knee which did not work well for me. Then another flight of stairs...

A very good place for short-term stays in Nassau. Central location, only 5 minutes taxi from airport, great ocean view from several wooden terraces and many hotel rooms. Nice and friendly staff, relaxed and easy atmosphere, fair price. Nice "old + traditional" style with many wooden elements. Sea view terraces on 2 floors are great for chilling out and relaxing,...

And ended up here for the night. Minutes from the airport with a super nice staff. Rooms are functional and very clean. We had an ocean view room with a common terrace, but the garden is beautiful so I'm sure that vista would be great as well. Honor bar. NOTE: LOTS OF STEPS up a hill to get to the...

My husband surprised me with a weekend trip to A Stone's Throw Away for our 20th anniversary in October. It was just a week after Hurricane Matthew blew threw.

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
