A Stone's Throw Away, Authentic Bahamas Holidays

Stone’s Throw Away

At the west end of New Providence Island lays an intimate and homey hideaway. A Stone’s Throw Away Bed & Breakfast is perched 70 feet above sea level, on one of the highest elevations by the coast. Here 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 coral reefs that protect the glimmering beaches of West Nassau.

The owners, Chris and Lisa, built the property in 2004 to echo the traditions of an old Bahamian home: wooden floors and ceilings, louvered shutters and a large wraparound porch transport guests back to a quieter time long ago, of bird song and the whistle of crickets carried in the gentle breeze of the trade winds.

With Nassau being better known for the glitzy-style holiday of mega-hotels, A Stone’s Throw Away offers a world away – a personal service in a relaxed and intimate environment for you to have a true Bahamian experience.

Nassau may be home to glittering large resorts, casinos and cruise ships, but A Stone’s Throw Away is the perfect B&B from which to start exploring the islands.


A Stone’s Throw Away Bed & Breakfast can accommodate up to 20 guests in 8 rooms (garden, island or ocean view) and 2 suites. Each room has a king size bed, an en suite bathroom, air conditioning and a mini bar. The rooms are also equipped with cable TV, DVD and a free Broadband internet connection. The rooms all have direct access to the large wrap-around porch, some of which offer guests the most amazing views of the ocean and the coral reefs which protect the glimmering beach.

The pool area stands high above Gambier village and other settlements of West New Providence. Relax by the pool, on the bench carved under the waterfall – the perfect location for you to enjoy a tropical drink. Once the sun has set, you’ll find that the deck is the perfect setting for a romantic dinner (please book in advance). The Chef will be delighted to prepare the best Conch appetisers (The Bahamas is home to the region’s best conch dishes) and to grill your favorite meat and freshly caught seafood.

For those who would prefer salt water, the beach is within walking distance, just down the hill. Beach towels are provided and a picnic basket can be arranged in advance.

Each evening, the lounge on the main porch offers the most relaxing and peaceful experience. There, Harriett has perfected the art of daiquiris and other tropical drinks. Inside, comfortable couches and an honour bar are available to guests.


The Bahamian-style property is well-suited as the start of an island-hopping trip. It provides a laid-back experience to busy Nassau, with a taste of what’s to come in the other islands.

A buffet breakfast is served each morning in the dining room or on the porch. On some mornings, Chef sets up a cooking stand on the porch and will prepare your favourites on demand, in true Bahamian style.
