Resort Description

A Stone's Throw Away is located five minutes from Cable Beach and offers the very best of the Bahamas in the heart of New Providence.

Situated on the west end of New Providence, A Stone's Throw Away is perched on one of the highest elevations by the coast, giving guests rare and magnificent views 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 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.

This is a boutique hotel, accommodating just 20 guests in eight rooms and two suites. WiFi is available free of charge in all areas, there's an outdoor pool and massage services are available all year. Air conditioning is also included and guests get access to the on-site garden too.
