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 Orchid Bay Estates

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.

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.

Sunrise is very popular with multi-generation family groups

A bucket list must! Unbelievable!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

If we went on fifty vacations we could never find another Sunrise Villa. Possibly the most beautiful place on the planet. The accommodations were nothing less than totally impressive. The facility, food, and staff where unsurpassed! Ramon the bartender is a pleasure and makes the Villa home for everyone. What a place! I would recommend this to anyone who wants to just relax and enjoy the most peaceful place on earth. We can't wait to visit again. Thanks Kevin and staff it was a dream vacation!

Unsurpassed relaxation and beauty

  • 5 of 5

All I should really say is that this was our 3rd time visiting Sunrise for our annual girls weekend of 18! Just the thought of pulling up in front of the beautiful villa and having Chris, Sandy, and the wonderful Sunrise crew waiting on the porch to welcome us keeps us coming back. But, it certainly doesn't stop there. As soon as you have a hunger pang, delicious fresh food mysteriously appears and Ramon is manning the bar ready to whip up everyone's favorites, even if there are 18 different ones!

The rooms are lovely and clean, some with outdoor showers. Rosa's massages are a treat and not to be missed. The entire setting is beautiful and conducive to relaxing.

Can't wait to go back in 2018!

Love Sunrise Villa!

  • 5 of 5

This was the 3rd year for our annual girls getaway at Sunrise Villa. The minute we drove up to the villa we were greeted by the wonderful Sunrise Villa staff. I must say, it is like coming back to visit dear friends, lots of hugs and big smiles -- we instantly fell into vacation mode and Ramon was there to serve up his specialty cocktails, of course with his adorable charm! Ramon, Sandy, Frank, Pepito, Rosa and Chris are all so kind and treat us like family! Kevin, the owner, is extremely helpful and very responsive. The villa is so special -- it really is a retreat in so many ways. The views are just beautiful and the landscape makes you feel like you are worlds away. Relaxing by the pool, a walk on the beach, enjoying the hot tub while looking out towards the ocean, it truly defines relaxation. My favorite part is that it is not in a touristy area, there are no big hotels around. You really get a sense of the area and enjoy the beauty of Cabrera. It is a special place! We look forward to going back again in 2018! Can't wait!

Wow, I don’t even know where to start. Simply amazing! Best vacation ever.

My wife and I visited Sunrise Villa with 7 other couples and were treated like royalty beyond our expectations. Right from the start upon arrival we were greeted by the Sunrise staff and were made to feel comfortable and welcome immediately!! The entire staff continued to impress us with courteous service and hospitality above and beyond…everyday!

The food was 5 star quality all week…every meal. I love seafood and I the dishes served was by far the freshest and tastiest I’ve ever had. Breakfast always included fresh squeezed fruit juices…the lunches and dinners were always perfectly cooked and presented (and I tend to be a food snob). It got to the point where you couldn’t wait for the lunch/dinner bell to ring.

The design and layout of the villa itself was well thought out. The open concept throughout the main house is comfortable and very inviting allowing for shade if wanted or needed, and cover during a shower. Not to mention this is the location of the Manana Bar (my favorite), which ended up being the most popular meeting and hanging spot in the villa. Kudos to Ramon the bartender, who took care of the group with exotic drinks upon request and always at the ready for pleasant conversation. The guest villas are gorgeous, spacious and meticulously clean.

Chris, the on-site manager, catered to our every whim and never once disappointed. From the trip downtown to Cabrera for local shopping; the day trip to Playa Grande Beach (a picturesque beach which also included a white linen lunch on the beach…of lobster and chicken!!); dinner and dancing at a local Cabrera staple called Manny’s and a delicious Italian dinner at Entre Amigos…all arranged by Chris and the Sunrise staff.

The staff also provides massage, manicures and pedicures…onsite! I had a beautiful massage on the villa cliff overlooking the ocean…it was amazing.

In closing, the best part about Sunrise Villa experience is that you NEVER worry about details. Chris and the staff handle EVERY detail based on your recommendation and desire. You just sit back and enjoy the experience.

If you want a touristy, crowded, overpriced location, go somewhere else…if want a relaxing, no hassle, no worry UTOPIA choose Sunrise Villa.

Tropical Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We were invited to vacation here with a group of friends and their families. It was the best vacation we have ever had! The location is a tropical heaven, with perfect balance of ocean, beach and jungle. It literally is where the jungle meets the ocean. The beach is surrounded by coral cliffs and lined with palm trees. Perfect spot to relax with family and friends. Each time we ventured down to the ocean the staff eagerly packed up a cooler with snacks and drinks....made sure chairs were set up perfectly for all of us. The property is spectacular....a beautiful home set up for optimal views and total comfort. The villas are scattered throughout the property, each with its own uniqueness and charm. We stayed in the Garden suite and woke up each morning to a view of orchid gardens and jungle...beautiful! The staff will take care of absolutely everything you need. They tend to you on the property and make sure everything is handled for you if you choose to venture off for dinner, drinks at Mannys or one of the many local adventures. Nothing is overlooked. The food.....cooked fresh every meal with all of the local offerings. We had everything and it was all outstanding. I arrived hungry and after our first meal I was never hungry again...they just keep feeding you. Ramon at the bar will become your best friend. The best bartender in Cabrera! Mr. Chris, the concierge, is a local expert on all things and will make sure whatever need or desire is taken care of. He takes care of his guests and staff....you can feel the love! Oh....the massages, table set up wherever you want...cliff overlooking ocean. Don't leave without at east one. We're coming back...!

Beauty to the extreme

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been there many times. And we hope to go back many more times. The Villa is itself is totally beautiful, each bedroom is unique in its own way, they each have their own name. Last time we stayed in Diamante. Staff is very friendly and helpful. When we have wanted to go to some of the surrounding beaches they put together a cooler, towels and arrange transportation. Lots of smiles. They will do whatever you need to have done to make your stay pleasant. The food is fresh, delicious, and plentiful. The sun comes up right over the beach and you go to bed with the sound of the waves as background music, so soothing and peaceful. We are actually going back in January to see the whales migrating right off the beach there! You absolutely will never regret taking family and friends there.
