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. Although the lush tropical landscaping had taken a bit of a beating, it was still a magnificent, beautiful, and serene place to visit. Michael and Marcie made sure we had everything...

We stayed here for a week, and absolutely loved this place. Sure, it's not perfect, but it felts like home away from home. We stayed here for a week, partly working, partly vacationing. It is nestled away from Nassau, really quiet, on top of a small hill, with great views on the ocean. You can go for a swim in...

This place does not run like clockwork, and it is a steep climb up the stairs but the staff is friendly (and will assist you with your bags) and once you have arrived the rustic charm is lovely and overwhelming. We had the room on the top floor which. The windows open for a fresh breeze. We especially loved the...

We arrived from key west and we had problems with our luggage. The airline lost our bags, so the beginning of this trip didn’t start off too well. We checked in to the hotel late, the hotel is literally no more than a 10 min drive from the airport. The receptionist was very sympathetic when she heard about our luggage...

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
