My husband and I spent one night at ASTA last week, before departing for Long Island. Near the airport, they provide free transfer to it. Room was very spacious and clean. Dinner was good but not great.Really useful as a stopeover.

My wife and I visited ASTA for an extended weekend (3 nights). It was fantastic. The food was delicious and during our stay the pool was nearly private (no other patrons using it). Nirvana Beach (just down the road) is one of the most beautiful I have ever seen and John was happy to give us a ride there and...

I spent one night at ASTA after six days on Eleuthera. I wanted a place near the airport with a little character and style but not a completely bloated price, and this place more than met my expectations. Unique location, beautiful wrap around porches with a number of potential spots to take in the views while sipping a drink or...

We were worried about making a connection back to the US after coming so we chose to be more relaxed about it and fly from Cat Island, spend the night in Nassau and hop on the International flight the next day. I'm glad we did this as it gave us a chance to slowly adjust back to reality (Nassau is...

Picked it partly based on TA review, then recommended by friend who lives in Nassau. Very convenient for airport, great views from top of bluff, bit of a trek into town. Local buses are great fun and great value $1.25 fare to town! But service intermittent and not in evening. Rooms are really nice, good relaxed atmosphere, every friendly ..completely...

Came for some sunny weather on January 2nd and stayed for a full 9 nights. Overall am very pleased with my hotel experience. Although we were unlucky with the weather in the first 3 days we were upgraded by the owner Chris to an Ocean view room free of extra charge and this was just one of the many generous...

My wife and I just spent a wonderful 3 nights and 4 days at A Stone's Throw Away on the western end of New Providence island in the Bahamas. The B&B sits on one of the highest bluffs on the island and the views are breathtaking all around the building (there is a great wraparound porch which provides 360 views)....

If you are looking for a great place to spend a night or two before/after your flights to one of the Family Islands, A Stone's Throw Away is perfect. Although the hotel/inn is only 8 years old, it was built and furnished in a British colonial/Bali style. On arrival ( which is complimentary)from the airport) you are dropped outside a...

Should be a beautiful property but it's not been kept up. It's as if the management is sick and tired. Guest room: not private because of the porch around the perimeter - people can walk by and see in the window as there are no blinds. Awoke in the night with bug bites. Food: With only 6 others in the...

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
