Historic Cape Eleuthera Resort & Marina

In the early 1970’s Powell Pointe, at the very tip of Cape Eleuthera peninsula, was a favoured playground of the Kennedy’s, boasting its own 6,500 ft-long airstrip that could facilitate them flying directly to and from New York. There was a championship golf course designed by Robert Von Haggee and Bruce Devlin, that rivaled Pebble Beach. And Billy Jean King was the visiting tennis pro.

Conceived and developed by Juan Trippe, founder of Pan Am, Cape Eleuthera Resort always had a whiff of Citizen Kane’s megalomaniac Xanadu about it. The size alone was extraordinary — 4,500 acres comprising almost the whole of the peninsula as far inland as Deep Creek, with more than 16 miles of shoreline.

When Trippe and his business partner, the Florida-based real estate firm GAC, unveiled the project in 1971 it consisted of an airport, golf course, marina and 60 villa units, but with infrastructure for another 1,500 residential lots.

GAC went bankrupt, Trippe died in 1981 and Cape Eleuthera Resort fell into the hands of a Saudi developer. Two years later it was abandoned, and Powell Pointe returned to scrub.

But with such a glittering legacy Cape Eleuthera wasn’t going to stay out of the spotlight for long. Today there is a brand new marina with 55 slips and capacity for 145 more, and a 450-ft dock wall, which is the largest on the island.

Lining the marina are 19 two-storey, two-bedroom town homes with high-end finishes, fixtures and appliances. The effect is elegant rather than opulent, although a touch of luxury is provided by the location. Each town home offers a view both of sunrise — from the guest bedroom, over the shallow, dappled waters of Rock Sound — and the sunset, from the master bedroom, over the deeper, greener waters that stretch towards Exuma.

Music City, U.S.A, now where could there possibly be a better place for a Hard Rock Cafe? From Johnny Cash, Chet Atkins, Charlie Daniels, Vince Gil, Dolly Parton to Keith Urban, Reba, Carrie Underwood to Paramore and Kings of Leon, all part of Nashville’s unique musical history. The Nashville Cafe has been rockin’ Music City since 1994! Newly revamped in December 2009, Hard Rock Cafe Nashville contends as one of the city’s premier dining and entertainment destinations. The remodeled Cafe has more than 12,920 square feet of space, including a 378-seat restaurant, open air terrace, Rock Shop and a state-of-the-art live concert venue. Jimi Hendrix said it best “That’s where I learned to play really…Nashville.”

Located in the heart of the historic ‘District’ of downtown Nashville at the foot of Riverfront Park, Hard Rock Cafe Nashville is the perfect venue for any event! It is within walking distance of the Nashville Convention Center, Historic Ryman Auditorium, Country Music Hall of fame, Bridgestone Arena and LP Field. If the charm of the honky-tonks, and the Grand Ole Opry aren’t your style, “Nash-Vegas” has many other claims to fame. Being that the city is the financial and insurance center of the South, the “Athens of the South” with several acclaimed schools (and its own replica of the Parthenon), a major sports center with the Tennessee Titans and Nashville Predators both at home, plus the State capital since 1843. And at the Hard Rock Cafe Nashville, the good-times tradition continues. Housed in the site of Nashville’s first brothel, our building stretches half a block long, and the outdoor “Ledge” has plenty of room for you and all your rowdy friends! Hard Rock Cafe Nashville has been revamped to preserve the legacy of the existing location while integrating technology and other elements to create a new look and vibe that rocks downtown!
