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.


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.


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.

Amazing house!!

  • 5 of 5

This is an absolutely amazing house! The view when you walk in the front door is spectacular and the layout of the house is fantastic. The living room, dining room and kitchen are large enough that we never felt crowded, but not so large that we felt disconnected from one another. The outdoor living area was breathtaking and we certainly made good use of it, along with the grill. Also, the matresses are so comfortable and I slept soundly every night of our vacation.

Sue and Walt are so friendly and incredibly hospitable. They had many recommendations in regard to island activities, and offered an abundance of fresh fruit from the trees on the property.

Before booking, I was surprised (and honestly, a little skeptical) that a house can have nothing but 5 star reviews, but after staying here I know the 5 star reviews are well-deserved.

Mahalo to Sue and Walt for helping us to have a wonderful vacation and offering a place for us to create some great memories!

True Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect! It’s a gorgeous home, with the most stunning sunsets views I have ever seen! The house is large and really had everything we could have asked for. Sue and Walter were wonderful hosts, and checked in a few times to make sure we had everything we needed, and to occasionally bring us more fresh fruit from their property. The house was very private and we felt as if we were in our own little world, while only being 10 minutes from downtown Kona and 30 minutes from the islands best beaches. I highly recommend this house to anyone looking for an incredible rental home for their vacation. Thank you Sue and Walter for sharing your slice of heaven with us!

Absolutely incredible stay at this house!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our stay was perfect! The house had everything we needed from the kitchen to the beach toys. The view is breath taking. We enjoyed every sunset from the lanai. The pool was so much fun for the entire family, especially the kids. Everyone enjoyed the fresh fruit from the trees. The owners are super friendly and want to make each guests stay as best as possible. One of the best family vacations we have ever had!

A slice of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six adults and two children had a fantastic seventeen day stay in this beautiful home. The beds and all other furniture in the home and on the lanai are very comfortable. The home is very clean and well equipped with everything and anything you may need. The kitchen is generously sized and well equipped. The bathrooms are very nice and had plenty of towels for everyone. We spent most of our time on the lanai admiring the incredible ocean view. The location is perfect for a true relaxing vacation and ideally situated to enjoy and explore all areas of the island. The owners Susan and Walter are gracious hosts who were readily available to answer any questions we had.

Mahalo for sharing your home with us, Susan and Walter.

Magic Sands

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.
