Prettiest Area to Stay in Bahamas?

What are some of the prettiest, reasonably priced beachfront towns/places to stay in the Bahamas? We like less commercial, more rustic, laid back, beautiful scenery, perhaps can find a good last-minute deal... Just don't know what towns/areas to search in. THANKS.
Update: If we do stay at an "out" island, is it fairly reasonable to island hop for the afternoon?
