About Susan Welton
Hi, We’re Walter and Susan , and we welcome you to our island (Well, it’s not our island. We don’t own it; it’s far too large.) Having been residents of Big Island before Kona had a single stoplight and nothing stayed open past 5pm, we’ve watched our town grow and change. Thankfully it remains as charming and full of the Aloha Spirit as it did when we moved here in 1979 (with a few extra amenities). Walter spent his career as a contractor building high-end custom homes for happy clients and Susan spent her career flying high in the friendly skies as a flight attendant for United Airlines. Over the past 30 years we have built countless numbers of our own homes together, and we wanted to combine that building expertise and our love for travel and adventure to create the ideal vacation home in paradise. Walter has a great talent for creating beautiful, well-crafted spaces and Susan is a master at making a house a home. Together we know staying at Kona Sunset Hale will be the experience of your lifetime. It is our aim to make you feel as though you’ve come to stay with friends. There is nothing quite like the Land of Aloha, and we are so excited to welcome you to it. Aloha, Walt & Sue
Why Susan Welton chose Kailua Kona
Its a funny story - We tried to sell it twice, it kept coming back. So, we got the message and decided to build on it instead. But since we already had a home we like, we chose to build one for you. It was completed in 2014, with NEW almost everything. This property is magical, come see for yourselves. VERY IMPORTANT: Please understand that we are in a quiet residential neighborhood and all noise needs to be brought inside the house by 10PM as a courtesy to the neighbors. ALSO.. this property has been rented to you .. large parties are not allowed. Please feel free to talk with us about this if you would like.
What makes this House unique
Concierge Service Available. We have traveled extensively and know what is important to the traveler, so we bought you new pillow top beds in all rooms, flat screen tv's in all rooms with free wifi, and netflix in the living room. We have built a kitchen that wants for nothing, You will have a solar heated saltwater pool to float and play in, a fenced Private yard surrounded with tropical plantings. There are No stairs, not even into the house from the porticache. Panoramic Ocean View.. It IS truly amazing. 5 minutes from Kailua town - VERY centrally located. Close enough - yet the feel of being far away.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
How perfect it is
We had to choose this house after we heard our first choice burned down. While I never wish this for anyone, we came out ahead with this house; it should've been the first choice. This house was amazing for the 5 of us (two couples and a single). The house is beautiful, had a great view, and is stocked with everything you need. Everyone had the ability to be together or be on their own in the house which was great. The owner lives next door, and was extremely communicative and helpful. The pool was amazing, and we lived on the back patio the entire week. The best part is it's about 5mins to town, so shopping and dining was never an issue. We're already planning our trip back.
A Dream Vacation- 1st Time to Hawaii
Our family of 4 recently stayed at Sunset Hale for 12 days. Susan and Walter were amazing and answered all the questions we had, as well as gave wonderful recommendations of things to do on the island. The home was/is absolutely terrific, the pool was perfect and the sunsets a dream... every night! Thank you both again for your hospitality! Aloha 🌺🤙🌴
Beautiful View Hale
This home exceeded all of our expectations. Modern, very clean, extraordinary view, and wonderfully hospitable owners. My wife said this was her best vacation (among many).
We will be back!
We hope to see you again one day.
Walt and Sue
5 Star doesn’t do this home justice ! It’s even better and Sue and Walt are the perfect hosts who really go all out to see you have a relaxing and yet fun filled Hawaiian holiday. You know when people give rave reviews and say “we will be back”, well, we will be back and we have booked their home for next year already ! The quality of the home, the layout of the home and the view was “ Outstanding”. Looking forward to next year already ! Mahalo Sue and Walt.
Aloha Wayne and Cathy,

This house couldn’t have been better for our group of three couples. Wonderful location and the owners are very helpful.
Great location, great view, great house
We enjoy 21 of the 23 climates in the world, which presents us with multitudes of choices every day. From snowboarding/skiiing on top of Mauna Kea to swimming with the mantas.. All in one day if you wish. We often experience the red lava flow of Kileauea Volcano, strolling through a lava tube, and hiking the surrounding area. The waterfalls are refreshing and can be seen from Akaka Falls to Waipio Valley. You can plant yourselves on a black sand beach along side the turtles who rest there daily. Golf, golf. and more golf. The west side of the Big island is a golfers paradise. Courses designed by Jack Nicklaus and others of his notoriety. Challenging at times but always filled with the beauty of the ocean and the mountains.
Hungry? We have the flavors from the most renowned chefs to the best ' local style' foods. A luau is a must do just to experience the tastes of the islands. Our beaches are like no others we have ever seen. Many are hidden from view, so you will not find them crowded with people, instead you will find turtles ( honus) resting, palm trees swaying, and a pool of aqua warm water waiting your arrival. The Big Island is a surfers dream. We have summer spots brought from the south and winter spots brought by the north. There are beginner breaks and breaks for those without fear. We also have a terrific surf lesson beach for those of you who want to give it a try.
We have hiking, biking, running, walking, for all levels.
I really can't think of anything we don't have... except snakes.
Which is a good thing, especially when you are on that that treacherous forest trail. :) Please enjoy our island, you will marvel at the calmness and beauty offered to you while you are here... its called 'Aloha Spirit' We look forward to meeting you.
