Not what expected

Would not recommend Tue, May 6, 2014
The staff was not helpful at all. I attempted to purchase a bottle of water before 10 PM & was told "it was closed." Any request we made (which was only one as we checked out after the first night due to the unsatisfactory experience), it was like we were a huge inconvenience. On the morning after we arrived, after we walked the half mile to the resort that provides day passes to those staying at A Stones Throw Away, we quickly asked if there were rooms available there, which thankfully there were. We moved immediately there and were so much more pleased and actually enjoyed our vacation.

Great place to unwind

Would recommend Mon, Feb 17, 2014
This place has wondeful views as long as you book the ocean view rooms. The garden view room has a good view of the ocean but there is a tree right in the way that obstructs an otherwise spectacular view. The room was wonderfully decorated, comfortable and cozy. Water pressure in the shower could be better but your in the Bahamas so I over looked that fact. The real down side is the unfinished construction right next door that's unpleasing to see. The staff is friendly, nice and helpful . If they could and would step up customer service they would have a dream 5 star rating. Even with the bad things I mentioned I would still recommend it if you want that relaxed and romantic getaway. Definitely give this place place a shot!!!!!

Dining

Gotta go to Travelers Restaurant down the street from A Stones Throw Away. This place has great ambient feel and the food is great. We went on a Satruday night, they were having a pig roast buffet and live Caribbean band. Definitely worth the walk.

Impromptu getaway

Would not recommend Wed, Jan 29, 2014
This property is completely overpriced. The room was average and the overall staff service level was below average. The breakfast offered as part of the package was not of good quality. I would encourage the owner to spend some time doing some basic upkeep AND train your staff on proper customer service.

Hidden Gem on a Hill

Would recommend Thu, Jan 9, 2014
The location, views, staff, and service are excellent. This was my first B&B, and it was truly pleasant. The near by restaurant, Travelers, has very good food, and pleasant staff. Access to transportation was also good, but a handful of the bus drivers simply drove too fast, with no regard for passenger safety. Furniture, rugs, and blankets need attention. The atmosphere is serene especially in the garden, and on the beach. There is plenty of exercise if you don't mind the stairs, and the hill leading down to the beautiful beach. I will return again next year. Vincent P. and Michae R.

This Stone's A Gem!!!

Would recommend Wed, Jul 25, 2012
A Stone's Throw Away (ASTA) is the perfect location for a romantic getaway. I was originally hesitant to book a stay at a bed and breakfast, but my boyfriend suggested that we give it a try and I am so glad we did. This place is like heaven on earth. The house is beyond beautiful as I felt like I was staying in a cozy and very comfortable mansion. The rooms are spacious and nicely decorated and the beds are so comfortable. Our room faced the ocean, and we took advantage of the wraparound porch by waking up every morning and stepping out to enjoy the lovely view. One day I scheduled a morning massage and I was able to get it done on the porch facing the ocean and that was the best! And I can't say enough about how extremely courteous and professional the staff was. They chef made a pretty good breakfast every morning (pancakes, French toast, bacon, omelets, etc or you can opt for a continental breakfast of cereal, fruit, coffee and cookies. And you can't beat the complimentary ride to and from the airport. I also left a really nice necklace and they found it and mailed it to me without me having to pay for postage. They have a couple of restaurants within walking distance. We went to Travelers Rest and that was good. We took the bus ($1.25 or $1.50) to hang out downtown and do some other touristy things, but we were glad to get back to the peace, quiet and serenity that ASTA has to offer. If you are looking for a romantic place to stay, and don't have problems with walking up stairs I highly recommend this place. I can't wait to go back!!

Money saver

Keep in mind, while the bus is easy and inexpensive, ($1.25/50 each way) it stops running at 6 p.m. Cabs are anywhere between 20 and 30 dollars depending on where you are going downtown. Be sure to go to the store to buy snacks for your room. Although I loved the honor bar system ASTA had set up, it's nice to have snacks and drinks in your room. If possible get an ocean view room it's worth the extra money

Great views but lots of steps to get there

Would recommend Sun, Jun 3, 2012
Pros: Close to Airport. Ok. for one night. Wrap arround porch. Comfortable king size bed. Great sunsets. Tastefully decorated. Friendly staff. Cons: If you travel with more luggage than a carry on it is wise to consider another place. The only way to get to the hotel is trough a cave over about 100 steep steps. Do not expect help to carry your bags. No elevator. We had 4 heavy bags. AC had odor so we decided to open the windows and run the fan. But the fan had heavy dust on its blades. We did not dare to run it. Room fridge was empty and did not work. Limited not cooled refreshments are available.

Time saver

Close to Airport. Only ok if you travel with carry on bag.

Georgeous facility

Would recommend Sat, May 19, 2012
It is great for its location. Close to airport and meetings. As a transit stop it is fantastic. A superior Bed and Breakfast, but typical Bahamas plumbing and ordinary food. Excellent staff. Not for anyone with difficulty climbing stairs.

Unlucky with the weather

Would recommend Tue, May 1, 2012
Our 3 night stay was dampened by the bad weather. While the hotel doesnt have the glitzy facilities of some name brands it was a cozy andf relaxing atmosphere to sit back and watch the rain. The large balcony was perfect for relaxing outside the room. Meals are tasty but basic. That said the home made cookies were brilliant. The staff were always helpful.
