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... More

My three night stay at this property was for the purpose of a relaxing get away. Well, I experienced exactly that.

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... More

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... More

I accidentally booked a room at this hotel, and when I went to try to cancel it they wouldn't let me. I had to pay a 100% penalty. Quite frankly I think the hotel was very deceptive.

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
