My partner and I stayed here for 4 nights in February. We were looking for a relaxing, quick getaway, away from all the nonsense you'll experience on Paradise Island. This property provided exactly what we were looking for. It is propped up on a hill, with lots of shrubbery for privacy and a beautiful view of the ocean. The owner and staff are helpful and accommodating. The king size beds are comfortable, the rooms can use some upgrading (newer AC unit, new fridge, safe (the safe is actually part of the fridge cabinet), shower/shower head could use an upgrade (tight fit, pressure was okay).

They offer free car service to the airport, BUT not from the airport. The taxi from the airport to the B&B will cost about $10. The breakfast is continental at best, however, they will make you eggs or something else if you ask. Taxis from the B&B to downtown can get expensive ($25-$40). Reserve a scooter or plan on flagging down the number 10 or 12 jitney to town for $1.50 a person (they run from 9am to 7pm daily).

We didn't have dinner there, but if you tell them early enough, they will make dinner for you. There is coffee, tea and water available all day, and an honest bar for cocktails/beer/wine. Laundry services are on the ground floor for a fee.

The closest beach is at Compass Point Resort and Spa (about a 10 minute walk). They will charge you $10 to use their facilities for the day. It is worth it. Their facilities are really nice. Their restaurant is tasty, drinks are strong. There is a local shop down the road that serves tropical conch salad and beer, it's worth going there for the food and experience. Traveller's Restaurant is okay, service is slow, average bar food, nice live entertainment, but only open Wednesday - Sunday nights.

Room Tip: Island view rooms on the main floor are noisy in the morning. Hallway traffic, and you'll hear lots of walking around above you. The balconies are wonderful, with a cool breeze/sunset and really quiet, perfect for sipping wine or reading a book. Upgrade to a suite or ocean view room if possible. Garden view rooms are on the ground floor, away from the common area. They may be quiet since they are away from all the house traffic, but you'll need to walk upstairs for anything you may need.

We stayed here for one night as a layover to an out island. Perhaps we had a room that was unlike the others (#4) because our experience was nothing like the other reviews. At first glance the B&B is quaint, but upon further experience, it obviously is in need of some TLC. We had two lamps on the wall over our bed; one did not have a light bulb, both of them were literally coming out of the wall. My husband had to play around with them so that they wouldn't fall completely off. The screen on the side window is torn completely off the bottom frame. The french doors out to the balcony did not lock. The lock on the main door into the room was broken. When we returned from dinner, the door was wide open. When I asked Harriet she said "oh don't worry, that door always pops open"! Really????
The hotel is in a residential area. There are serveral neighbors with dogs that barked incesssantly. The balconies although nice, were shared with the rooms next door so there was no privacy and you couldn't sleep with the doors open.
And of course the stairs - if this place was a true 5 star place, then perhaps I could have lived with it, but it was just another thing that crossed this off of the list for future vitsits.
Again, it was only for one night, we could live with it, but if we had been staying for longer, I would have checked out.

We stayed here on a 24-hour layover, en route to elsewhere, and it was perfect. First of all, the idea of staying at a B&B is more appealing to us than at a big resort. A Stone's Throw is a gem! Clean, lovely setting, beautiful view and a 1-block walk to a very private-feeling public beach. You'd walk this far to get to the beach at some of those sprawling resort properties. For lounging on site, there's a dunking pool and expansive decks on multiple levels overlooking the ocean. Breakfast included yogurts, juices, cereal as well as eggs to order. The rooms were clean & comfortable. We didn't eat dinner at the B&B, opting to walk down to the ocean-facing bar around the corner--Traveler's Rest. Festive live music and good "bar food" hit the spot. We didn't have time for a 30-min. taxi to downtown ($25 each way). Their complimentary ride back to the airport (a stone's throw away!) is also handy. Taxi from the airport to the B&B was about $20 or $25.
I would definitely stay here again for up to two nights for just some R&R.

Room Tip: Try to get a room viewing the ocean rather than the opposite side facing inland.

To be honest we were only here for the famous Stuart Cove's Shark Dive and not so much for visiting the island of New Providence. So we only needed a place to stay for a couple of days. After reading a lot of bad reviews for other hotels and reading a lot of good ones about ASTA we finally chose this place. And what a good choice. The whole place feels really homey and Chris, John and Harriet really make the difference with their honest and sweet and open attitude towards customers. We were upgraded to a Sea View Suite and OMG what a fantastic room this was. Just look on the their website and check it out. This is really a nice cosy B&B in a calm location. So if you like authenticity then this should be your choice. And if by any chance you have the opportunity to do the Shark Dive with Stuart Cove's than do it. It is absolutely worth it!

Hope to visit again if ever possible!

Room Tip: if you can afford it....choose the ocean view suite....

If you are looking for peace and relief then this is the correct place. Been in Nassau for business and found ASTA as an incredibly good place. Apart from traditional hotels like sheraton etc where you get tired of neverending uniformity this place was my switch off button. My stay was an adventure and great positive experience. Can i do that once again, mom? :D
