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 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 has just been completed, with NEW almost everything.

This property is magical, come see for yourselves.

What makes this house unique

New New New

First bookings will be offered starting May 1st - 2014

We have traveled extensively and know what is important to the traveler, so we bought you new comfy beds in all rooms, flat screen tv's in all rooms with free wifi, and netflix, a kitchen that wants for nothing, A heated saltwater pool to play in.

And much much more.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Brand new home with all amenities in mind. Designer kitchen with warm and inviting family and dining rooms. Home is nicely decorated with an island flare. Two master bedrooms with amazing ocean and sunset views. Heated saltwater pool looking out to the ocean. Great ocean/mountain breezes throughout. Plenty of room for our family of seven who spent a week there!! Conveniently located just 10 mins from Costco, Walmart and downtown Kona. About 15 minutes from the airport. Susan was great! She was thoughtful and went out of her way to make sure everything met our needs and was always available. She made available resources to help plan our trip while there (ie, suggested restaurants, activities, etc.). Would highly recommend the Kona Sunset Hale to all!!

Trip of a life time - beautiful home

  • 5 of 5
We spent 5 weeks at the home with our 2 year old and newborn sons. Everything was perfect. Susan and Walter the owners have really thought of everything to make your stay wonderful and luxurious. The home is brand new and beautifully decorated with high end finishes and designer décor. There are 2 master suites with very large bathrooms - 5 star quality. The pictures shown on the website are beautiful and when you arrive, the home is everything you expect and more. The lanai was our favorite part of the home. There are several seating areas and a table/chairs where we ate every day and enjoyed the beautiful view of the ocean below. Sunsets in the evening were gorgeous and we spent many nights just sitting on the lanai or swimming in the pool watching the sun go down. Our 2 year old loved swimming in the pool and running in the grass. It is a great home for kids - safe and secure.
The home is well equipped for families who want to cook meals at home, kitchen supplies are all there and like new. We had a really hard time thinking of anything that was missing - even after a 5 week stay. Walt and Susan - the owners live next door and were extremely helpful and hospitable. They would offer us limes, mangos, jam, butter, etc.. and anytime we had a question about the island, they were eager to help and offer suggestions.
The upkeep of the home and pool/yard is outstanding. Landscapers came nearly every week, pool cleaner every week, lawn was nicely mowed and manicured every week or so and home was immaculate when we arrived. the quality of the towels and linens were also very high. For beach days, chairs, umbrella and beach towels are provided and again high quality.
If you are looking for a beautiful home for your stay on the big island, you will love it. We are already planning to come back next year.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for such a great Review Colette and Darron. It was a pleasure to have you as neighbors for 36 days!
Just to let those of you reading the review know, there is an acre and a 6 ft Rock Wall between the properties with tall plants ( 9ft and growing). TOTAL privacy for all. And we are seldom home:0

Beautiful home, perfect for families

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from a week in Kona. Susan and Walt were amazing hosts, bringing us by things we forgot and anything that would make our trip with 18 month old twins easier. The home was modern and beautifully furnished and included every amenity you could think of. There was plenty of space and soft comfortable beds. The pool was perfect for relaxing and overlooking the sunset, ocean, and city of Kailua, which we could drive to within 5 minutes! When we left and went to dinner at the fancy "resort" we felt even better about our choice to stay in this lovely private home. So much more convenient and livable with kids in tow, and so nice to have so much of your own beautiful space. Would go back in a heartbeat. Thanks Susan and Walt!

Amazing!!!!

  • 5 of 5
I found my permanent vacation home! This place was unbelievable. Best views in Kona! We have stayed ocean front on Ali'i before but this was far better. Sunsets up here are amazing. Pool was so nice. The home is very spacious and modern. The beds were even perfect.

Susan was great and very accommodating. Town is only a 5 minute drive away. You cannot find better than this

The Perfect Place To Spend Our Vacation

  • 5 of 5
I really can't say enough about this wonderful home or the awesome folks who shared it with us.

We've never had an experience like it. From waking up in the morning and having breakfast on the lanai overlooking Kailua Kona, to BBQ in the evening watching gorgeous sunsets. I don't think there's anything I would have changed.

The house and all amenities are well thought-out and top quality. The great room opens completely to the phenomenal view (I'm running out of superlatives) and has a full screen to keep out the Island life drawn to the lights at night.

The kitchen is well appointed and the beds are a dream to sleep on.

The house is a very easy couple minutes drive from the center of everything and perfectly situated overlooking Kona, cooled by the nearly constant gentle breeze which keeps it comfortable even when Kona is sweltering.

Jump in the car and within five minutes we were sipping mochas waterside at Island Lava Java and shopping at Jack's Diving Locker. There's a Safeway even closer, and Island Naturals, which caters to those who prefer health foods and organics isn't much further.

Our hosts, Sue and Walt were a pleasure to deal with and were nearby, eager to make sure we were happy and had everything we needed. They are wonderful folks you'll want as friends the moment you meet them.

I always worry when choosing a place to stay on vacation. It's a big decision and you can't know if it will live up to the photos and descriptions. I can tell you, without reservation, this is the best place we've ever stayed. Everyone in my family was thrilled and will always remember this vacation.

Thank you, Sue and Walt, for building such a comfortable and enjoyable place to stay, and for sharing it with us.

We hope to come stay in the Sunset Hale again. (In fact, I spent some time wondering if there wasn't some way we could just stay there forever.)

Very clean, beautiful home with everything you need. The beds were extremely comfortable and the layout was perfect! Close to everything with the feel that we were away from it all. We loved the view and can't wait to return.

BEAUTIFUL HOME AWAY FROM HOME!

  • 5 of 5
Such a beautiful, well thought out space for a family, good friends or on your own to experience. The sunsets can be incredible. The pool, refreshing and the beach only minutes away. The comforts of home are all there. And the Spirit of Aloha is evident from the moment you enter the front door!

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.
