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!

Just...AMAZING

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd visit to Sunrise Villa and AGAIN this place exceeded all expectations. Absolutely fantastic!! The staff is simply amazing greeting us as we arrived and actually knowing our names from our visit last year. That is very special. When choosing a destination, I'm the type of person who does MAJOR research before deciding and this place tops all by far. You will not be disappointed.

The accommodations are very clean and beautiful...the grounds are spectacular. The food and drink is top notch!...quality, fresh and delicious!! Manana Bar rocks!...Ramon is the best bartender in the world.

There is much to see and do outside the villa and the staff will arrange anything and everything...local restaurants, beautiful local beaches, lagoons, horseback riding on the beach, fishing...you name it. You just give the staff your need and they set it all up...you just enjoy!!

This place is a must...look no further.

Another awesome vacation...thank you Kevin and Jeanne (sunrise villa owners) and many thanks to the villa staff.

I Repeat, Perfect Every Time!

  • 5 of 5

This was the sixth trip to Sunrise Villa for my wife and I. We went with close friends -- 6 couples in total. As in prior years, Sunrise Villa never fails to please. Relaxation and as much adventure as we wanted, all in one trip!

The staff makes you feel at home and the food -- all fresh local dishes by chef Frank --- is fantastic. And plenty of it! Chris, the manager, seems to never be satisfied until everyone is smiling big every day! And Ramone, the bartender, is the definition of service with a smile -- whether at the Manana bar or delivering to us loungers around the pool!

The beach is huge and pristine - a great place to gather shells or just lounge. We also traveled to a nearby public beach this trip (Playa Caleton -- beautiful!) to get some crafts from local artists and a beach side lunch as well.

The town of Cabrera also has its own treats and entertainment, especially, Manny's -- an ocean front bar/restaurant with a spectacular owner/chef.

Despite some heavy partying, we were rested every day, ready for either a do-nothing day or some local touring and shopping. Usually end the days dancing to music around the Manana bar until the wee hours! This place makes you want to stay up all night! But when exhaustion hits, the beds and sheets are the most comfortable I have ever slept in. Kept the windows and doors open every night -- sleeping to the wonderful breeze and sound of the ocean.

This place is a piece of heaven. Thank you Kevin for designing such an incredible getaway and tropical paradise that always delivers and keeps us coming back! The glow from our vacations here lasts for weeks!

Heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

Our second trip to heaven on earth. We arrived at Sunrise Villa to the same familiar smiling faces and clapping hands. Greeted with hugs and all around love from the incredible staff. Ramon had beautiful cocktails waiting and our bags disappeared to our private villas within seconds. The hospitality never ends.

We traveled with a group of six couples as we did the year before and this year we stayed in the Samana Suite. Trust me....all of the private villas are absolutely stunning but this one is almost beyond words. Sits at the peak of the property on a high cliff overlooking the ocean. Private veranda, gardens, outdoor shower and beautiful jacuzzi tub.

The property was designed perfectly to accommodate hanging out as a group or retreating to a little private peacefulness. A tropical jungle beach is all of yours to enjoy. It is just steps down the beautiful coral cliffs that the villa sits on. Mr. Chris will take care of having chairs and refreshments brought down for you....it's a perfect spot to enjoy some quiet time or exploring. This is the most beautiful beach I have ever visited by far.

You can hear the lunch bell from the beach! When you hear the bell it is time to feast. Chef Frank and his kitchen staff put out a spread every meal that will leave you more than satisfied. Full on breakfast everyday....local seafood and meats ,fresh veggies and fruits, pastas and stews are all plentiful and delicious. He is an amazing cook and will cater to any of your culinary needs with a smile.

Many nights spent singing and dancing over a few cocktails at the Manana Bar. Floating in the hot tub was my favorite pastime this year...especially in the evening. We visited a few local restaurants and beaches. This is all coordinated by staff....no worries. They were fun but you really do not need to leave the Villa....ever!!

Much thanks and love to all the staff....Mr. Chris, Ramon, Chef Frank, Sandy, Rosa (best masseuse ever!), Vivianna and Papito..I know I am forgetting a few. We will see you next year!!! xo

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!
