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 the 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.

Additional features include: Baby sitting service, Bar, Barbecue area, Dry cleaning, Laundry service, Library, Non-smoking rooms, Reception, Plunge pool, Safe deposit box.

Quiet, PERFECT B&B Experience!

A Stone's Throw Away is a fantastic, quiet, quaint B&B away from the hustle and bustle of Nassau. Five minutes from the airport, but still insulated from airport noise. The staff is amazing!!! A small group, very personable, who have all been there a long time. The food in the restaurant is really good! If I had to offer any critiques (and these are minor when I consider my overall experience there), I would have to say the wi-fi service is limited (have to be sitting in the lobby to pick it up), and the restaurant doesn't open if they don't have at least four guests planning to dine (which is a shame because the food they serve is chef-quality!) If you're looking for something reasonably priced, romantic (fantastic for couples!), and away from the commercial tone of town (a public bus at $1.50/person/trip will get you conveniently to town), there is no better place! Try it; you will not be disappointed! Final note... if y'all at the B&B get this - Harriet, Marcie, Patrice, Colyn, John and... ohhh... I'm missing the last one (so sorry; I only met you once or twice, but you were an absolute gentleman!) - You all were so nice, friendly, helpful and courteous! Thanks for making the visit so enjoyable!

Great place for peace, quiet, relaxation

The house is beautiful, the accommodations clean and comfortable, and the surroundings are simply gorgeous. The staff is super friendly but they give you privacy. It's a wonderful spot for people who want to get away from it all. There are no shopping places or activities (other than the pool at the hotel) anywhere nearby, so rent a car if you want to do anything other than stay at the hotel and nearby beach. (There is a public bus, but it comes by infrequently on this end of the island, and there are no buses at all after 7 pm.) The hotel has a restaurant, but it's very expensive. There is a more reasonably priced and very good restaurant around the corner, but that's it. If you're happy to stick around the hotel, those two options will suffice. If you like variety or you are staying longer than a few nights, you will need that car to get to other dining options.
