About Kevin

We're the Potters, from Northern Virginia. We didn't buy Sunrise Villa, we designed and built it. We're both semi-retired, and actively involved in the running of the property and it is our favorite little corner of paradise. KP does the managment and marketing side, JP does the creative. you'll see her work throughout the villa. Our 3 sons absolutely love Sunrise Villa. Our extended family have all enjoyed time there as well.

We love luxury travel but prefer luxury that is laid back, understated, and relaxing. Sunrise fits that philosophy to a tee.

Kevin purchased this villa in 2000

Why Kevin chose Cabrera

We love the Dominican Republic. The island is lush and beautiful. The ocean is stunning. We love the food, the cigars, and the rum. The real secret is the Dominicans themselves. They are the nicest folks in the Caribbean.

What makes this villa unique

Sunrise Villa is a very unique property. We promise you'll find no place like it on the island, and probably not in the Caribbean.

The villa design is like no other.(take the virtual tour on our website)

The house is very very upscale, but also extremely laid back, relaxing, and comfortable.

Sunrise is our personal getaway/party palace on the beach. Come visit us and see why we have so many repeat guests.

Paradise Awaited for my Honeymoon - WOW!

  • 5 of 5

Our honeymoon at Sunrise-Villa in Cabrera, Dominican Republic was magical! After viewing pictures of the luxurious villa property, my husband and I couldn’t resist inviting 2 other couples to spend a week with us at Sunrise Villa. What better way to enjoy paradise, than with some of our closest friends. The pictures by far don’t do the Villa justice because you cannot capture the wonderful spirit and hospitality of the staff, the beauty of the lush tropical plants and flowers, or the magic of the Manana Bar…the property’s resident Bar, where we spent many evenings unwinding from a long day in the pool or the hammock. From the Property Manager who greets you aka Mr. Roark from Fantasy Island, to the massage therapist on staff who sets her table up near the crash of the waves, to the excellent chefs…every wish was granted. One day while lounging in the pool we mentioned to each other how good some homemade chocolate chip cookies would be and the next day, out comes fresh, hot chocolate chip cookies! If you can think it, it can happen. We had trips organized for us to explore the stunning panoramic views of the ocean on horseback, gambling at a nearby casino and we even had a homemade picnic lunch at one of the beaches where the locals visit. It’s true at times you can’t swim in the ocean in front of the Villa because it’s not safe, but we spent so much time in the pool and at a nearby beach, we never missed it! The staff even surprised us on our last night at the Villa by decorating our bed with a heart, shaped from fresh rose petals! It looked and smelled amazing. I recommend the villa to anyone who wants to truly relax and experience the beauty of the Dominican Republic. My friends keep asking if we can go back for an Anniversary trip in a few years! That's the best review in my book.

Christmas at the Sunrise Villa 2014

  • 5 of 5

Our family (9) stayed at the Sunrise Villa the week of Christmas 2014. It was by the best vacation I ever had. It was so beautiful, comfortable and relaxing. The staff, to include Ramon (bartender), Frank (chef), and Sandy (Hostess) was absolutely wonderful. They catered to our every need, which was minimal! The other staff was also very professional and fun to have around. I would highly recommend the Sunrise Villa to anyone who wishes to experience a bit of heaven!

Luxurious Slice of Heaven with Angel Staff

  • 5 of 5

It was the best vacation ever! First of all the property itself is in a gated community of private villas called Orchid Bay and it is the last one on the end so there is 3 acres of nature surrounding the property. The main house is open air living where the doors are always open to allow the air to flow through the space and the view of the ocean to transmit through the property. Frank the chef, Ramon the bartender, Chris the concierge, Sandy the manager and the whole staff were so friendly and attentive!

Every morning the leaves were raked from the yard, the pool/hot tub was cleaned, fresh DR coffee would be set up in the main house, and the breakfast bell would ring. There was fresh squeezed juice ranging from orange pineapple to watermelon as well as fresh fruit every breakfast (papaya, cantaloupe, pineapple, honeydew). Some dinners that stood out were the surf and turf meals consisting of lobster and steak paired with mashed potatoes and gravy and another night Mariella made beer battered dorado that knocked my socks off! On top of the delicious food the view from the dining area was palm trees, the ocean and the beautiful landscaping of the property. Needless to say I was usually the first to the food line and the last to leave the table.

I treated myself to a mani-pedi which was perfect because Mariella was gentle yet thorough and very artistic. Rosa gave me a massage under the pergola on the outskirts of the property overlooking the ocean and cliffs. The sounds of the palm trees in the wind and the waves were a perfect backdrop to the seemingly endless massage.

As for fun outside of the villa we went to DR Eco Adventures (aprox 40 mins back towards Puerto Plata) where we were greeted with cutting of a fresh coconut for each guest. We went ocean kayaking and horseback riding with the most informative, friendly guides. Between the activities they provided lunch and beverage.

Dudu lagoon was a fun excursion that was fairly inexpensive (US$4 entry fee). There was a zipline approximately 7 meter into the 30-45 meter deep lagoon where they even had a lifeguard! The water was so clear you could see your toes and some people went scuba diving under the rocks where there was a cave. Dudu also had kayaking, caves and a restaurant. It was very clean and well landscaped which I found to be a trend in the DR.

I ran out of space but I just want to say I will definately go back to Sunrise!

Super friendly staff, amazing food, quite villa

  • 5 of 5

I loved everything about out stay there! The staff was awesome and the villa was incredible. The different houses were close enough to each to all be together, but far enough apart to get your privacy as well. Would definitely recommend for family and privacy for larger groups.

Step into a little piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Looking for a slice of serenity? Sunrise Villa gave us a winning combination of luxury & privacy for an intimate and memorable honeymoon experience. Bringing together the natural beauty of the Dominican beachfront, first-rate accommodations, along with unparalleled service from a stellar staff, our stay was exceptional.

Nestled in the secure and exclusive gated community of Orchid Bay Estates in the quiet rural town of Cabrera, Sunrise Villa sits on a gorgeous beachfront property atop a sea cliff with spectacular views of the ocean coast. Although you never have to leave this tranquil & picturesque setting, Sunrise is minutes away from Cabrera if you choose to explore the local culture, or take in a scenic dinner experience at the infamous Hotel Catalina. We highly recommend a stop at Flor Cafe,an amazing local restaurant situated among manicured gardens of orchids & exotic plants. The food is outstanding & the atmosphere is top-notch.

Elegantly decorated & meticulously maintained, Sunrise offers an endless choice of spacious accommodations. From an array of beautifully appointed suites on the property, we highly recommend the Samana Suite that offers discretely private accommodations, a spectacular patio deck with sweeping views of the ocean & its surrounding lush tropical landscape. Try the upscale outdoor shower by moonlight - it is an experience to remember.

The staff at Sunrise provided impeccable first class service throughout our stay. Chris, the Property Manager and a remarkable host, was extremely attentive to our needs and ensured we lacked nothing throughout our stay. Frank, the Villa's Chef, provided an assortment of delectable meals from morning to night, making sure we never went hungry. Let's not forget Ramon, Sunrise's entertaining bartender who makes your time at the Manana Bar a memorable one - from his thirst-quenching creations to his never-ending sunny disposition. Sandy, Rosa, Mariela, Vivi, Papito & Francesco tended to our every need. The entire staff provided the professionalism, responsiveness, and friendly atmosphere that make Sunrise Villa unique in its own right. Our conversations with Kevin, the owner, coupled with his responsiveness, flexibility, and friendly-nature reinforced our decision that Sunrise would be the ultimate destination for our honeymoon retreat.

Exceptional in every way, Sunrise Villa exceeded all of our expectations. We will return and highly recommend this little piece of paradise.
