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.

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

  • 5 of 5

Sunrise Villa is amazing! The layout of the Villa is perfect. The rooms and separate little villas are clean, comfortable and beautiful. The staff is superb!! They are kind & accommodating. The food is fresh, healthy, local and amazing. The bar and bartender, Ramon, are perfect! We enjoyed fresh pina coladas and fresh guacamole at 5pm every day! The pool and hot tub are relaxing and clean and there is ample space to sit in the sun or the shade around the pool. The view is breath-taking and the beach is great for walking and finding sea treasures. If you have any need, they will take care of it. Everything is thought of and you are treated like a celebrity! From in-house mani/peids and cliff-side massages (simply a MUST) to beach picnics and bonfires with music and quiet evenings on your private patio... it's your vacation and you can do what you want! Perfect for relaxing and getting away from the hustle and bustle of life. You must experience Sunrise Villa! We had 5 couples in our group and it was perfect. You could easily have many more people; however, 5-7 couples (or less) is what I would recommend. There isn't a lot for young children to do, so I wouldn't necessarily recommend this as a family destination. There is a small town close by (Cabrera) but there isn't much there. There are no big resorts or big tourist attractions anywhere near the Villa. Which makes it really nice (no other tourists anywhere!); however, a little tricky to get to. From Santo Domingo airport - plan on a two or two and a half hour cab ride! The swimming right in front of the Villa isn't very good. There is a lot of coral and sea urchins. Plus, there can be an undertow. However, there are some excursions (horseback riding, snorkeling, kayaking, etc.) that the Villa will arrange for you if you desire. We ventured to Laguna Dudu, which is a freshwater sinkhole near the Villa - definitely worth checking out. We went to La Playa Grande one day. It is a beautiful beach with great swimming and surfing! My husband and I took an hour cab ride (arranged by Villa) to Caberete (an international kite-surfing destination) so he could kite-surf. Definitely something to check out. We enjoyed some Presidentes (Dominican beer) and fresh fish tacos on the beach at the Kite Club. It was a lot of fun to watch over 75 kite surfers zooming across the ocean! Once you visit the Villa - you won't want to vacation anywhere else!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. I would like to point out that Sunrise is very popular among families with children. We provide nannies, games and organized activities for children as well as special excursions just for kids, young and older. This guest came with an all adult couples group and did not have the opportunity to experience "Sunrise for families" The local "lagoon" beaches are perfect for kids, and we provide transportation! Family groups are our most common guests.

Amazing place for a getaway with friends!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year heading to the Sunrise Villa for our annual girls' getaway. 18 of us, 4 nights, 5 days, a lifetime of memories. As expected, the staff at Sunrise Villa did not disappoint! When we arrived we were greeted by Chris and Sandy and we felt like we never left. Ramon was behind the bar waiting accommodate any special request (no ice, some ice, not too much tequila, only tequila). One of our bags never made it and Sandy and Chris bent over backwards to make sure it was delivered the next day. Frank was able to accommodate our food requests and every meal was cooked to perfection. Fresh caught fish, vegetables with every meal. The views are unparalleled! The rooms are clean and comfortable and the decor is welcoming, especially the collection of wooden giraffes. We really didn't feel the need to leave the villa but are glad we made it out to Manny's Bar for a night of dancing, drinks and fun. We are not any easy group to please but we think they have us figured out and we are already planning our third visit!

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I traveled to The Sunrise Villa with ten other friends for the first time, and we could not have been happier with our entire stay. The Villa is BEAUTIFUL both inside and out. There was plenty of personal space for us to be together as a group, or to get away for some quiet time, as well. We enjoyed countless hours at the pool and the hot tub. Plus, beach front is gorgeous, and we enjoyed hours out there watching the waves, sunbathing and hoping for a humpback whale to swim by.

When we wanted to go out and see the sights we enjoyed a day at a nearby swimming beach, snorkeling, horseback riding and a trip to the DuDu' with one of the area's excursion companies. Not sure what the DuDu', is check it out online.

The staff at Sunrise is first rate! They made the trip absolutely perfect! Everyone did whatever they could to make our stay unforgettable, from our fabulous bartender, the massage therapist, the manicures and pedicures, the groundskeepers, house staff and the chef.The meals were very good, my only complaint is that that we had too much food, my clothes were all a little to snug when we left! .

Best vacation EVER!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I have been traveling quite a lot in the last few years and this place is hands down the most wonderful experience so far. WONDERFUL staff, so beautiful, so many fun and interesting things to do. It is magical. A true vacation. No need for a vacation after your vacation. I am already trying to figure out how and when to take my whole family here. Just the best. Don't miss out and don't look anywhere else!!!!!

A wonderful week in paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with 10 good friends stayed for a week in this paradise overlooking the Atlantic. The view is spectacular as are the grounds. It was a week of being pampered and indulged. The staff were warm and friendly and constantly making certain we had anything we needed or wanted, from delicious food, beverages, a massage or a mani/pedicure. We hope to make a return trip sometime in the near future.

What a relaxing week

  • 5 of 5

I spent the week with my husband and 10 other friends at Sunrise Villa. I have had many travel experiences across the world but this was one of the best. There are activities to keep you occupied like horseback riding and one of the most beautiful beaches minutes away. If you want to relax and enjoy the people with you you can swimming, get a message (great) and other personal amenities are available. We also felt the place was ours and could choose to party into the night or go to bed early. The staff are there to help with anything and always pleasant. I hope to return
