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 Kona Coast

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 far away.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Kona Hale from 2/13/17 - 2/23/17 with two other couples.

We loved the home, the view, the location and the Island. The home had everything we needed. The owners Susan and Walt were very helpful and accommodating.

We believe this was the best vacation we have ever had! We will be back!

Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just returned from an 8 night stay at the Kona Sunset Hale. From the moment we walked in the door we felt comfortable and at home. Susan and Walt were incredibly accommodating and provided a warm welcome. Susan even put a 6 pack of beer in the fridge for us to enjoy after a long day of traveling from Michigan. The view, the pool, and the location were all outstanding! I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a "home away from home" while on vacation.

We had a fantastic week with the family here. The property was even better than we expected from the photos and descriptions we had seen. We had a welcome pack ready for our late arrival and in the morning Susan came over to help us plan our week. We came back some days to find fresh fruit on the doorstep! The house was spotless, and beautifully maintained. We would go back again in a heartbeat and miss the wonderful sunsets on the lanai! We had some wonderful meals and amazing trips like swimming with dolphins, cycling to the lava flows and having surfing lessons. A holiday to remember!

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.
