A Nassau Bahamas Vacation With Gourmet Cuisine

Jul 31, 2008
A Nassau Bahamas Vacation may not be your first choice destination when choosing a Bahamas vacation spot because of all the attractions of the more distant Outer Islands, but check out the exquisite A Stone's Throw Away on New Providence before making any decisions.

Try a Nassau Bahamas Vacation this year, with the incredible name of 'A Stone's Throw Away', appropriately named after its position conveniently five minutes from Nassau Airport, and close to the beach, and all the attractions and highlights of Nassau itself.

Insofar as 'A Stone's Throw Away' itself is concerned, possibly describing it as a hideaway is good, because it is out of the way, perched high up on the coastline it looks like a classic colonial building on three floors, with a high preponderance of wood, and wrap around verandas, giving the impression it has stood here for centuries when in fact it was built this way relatively recently in 2004.

It is a gourmet bed and breakfast inn with accommodation for twenty guests in 8 rooms, and 2 suites. Children have no special facilities and extra beds cannot be added to the rooms. In fact the peace and quiet which is a speciality of the house could well be disturbed by children, which is why they are not encouraged.

Each room has a King sized bed, private bathroom, air conditioning, a mini bar, Cable TV, DVD, and free broadband internet, plus a mini bar. They all have direct access to the large wrap around the property porch. The Garden View Rooms are on the ground floor, and the Islands View Rooms are on the second and third floor, and the Ocean View Rooms open up to the largest part of the Veranda on the ocean side of the house where there are day beds and loungers, but be aware that other guests can walk by as the veranda isn't screened off anywhere.

At an average price of USD225 'A Stone's Throw Away' isn't expensive, and gives jolly good value for money. The gourmet kitchen is a well known feature of the property, and the breakfasts certainly live up to this. You can also order lunch from a menu posted on the board, and eat between noon and two o'clock. You eat on the porch on the ocean side of the house, or indoors in a lovely manorial style dining room, where you could almost be in England such is the style of the room, and the breakfast as well.

In the evening the lounge on the main porch is the relaxation point, a bar is set up here and if you want to dine, then just ask, and it could be prepared for you next to the small waterfall pool in the tropical garden side of the house. One of the great things about 'A Stone's Throw Away' is that there is always a cool breeze.

There are a number of good beaches within walking distance from the picture postcard white sand of Compass Point to Orange beach with strong surf, or Goodman Bay is a beach with rest rooms and facilities. A Car would be useful but the local buses, or a taxi will do you just as well, as particularly the buses cost $1 and a regular, plus the fact you are then part of the community and that will add to your overall experience of the Bahamas.

You can definitely have a great Nassau Bahamas vacation at 'A Stone's Throw Away' from the gourmet cuisine, to the hideaway feeling. This is a lot more than just a bed and breakfast inn it is an experience to be treasured.
