Nassau Bahamas Vacations at A Stone’s Throw Away – Nassau Bahamas

A Stone’s Throw Away


A Stone's Throw Away - Nassau, BahamasAt 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.
