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 Hōlualoa
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.

Best Vacation House Ever on our Beloved Big Island
Kona Sunset Hale is by far the best vacation rental we have ever stayed in. Sue and Walt are wonderful hosts and have thought of all the important details that make a stay on the Big Island so wonderful. We were able to relax on the beautiful lanai, enjoy the pool while looking at the view of the ocean and downtown Kona, and cook wonderful meals in the beautiful kitchen. The house is amazing - beautifully made, so comfortable and peaceful.
I cried when we left but know that we will be back soon.
Mahahlo nui loa,
Kristin and Dick Whitley
Great house with amazing view
This was an ideal house for our stay on the Big Island. The home is very well maintained and very well equipped from the kitchen to the availability of beach items (chairs, umbrella, cooler etc.). The owners have really thought of almost everything to make your stay comfortable. The view is unbeatable and Susan was a great host! We would highly recommend this vacation home and hope to come back in the near future.
Mahalo for your review and for staying with us.
It makes us happy to see our guests so happy.
You mentioned we thought of ALMOST everything...Oh NO.. what did we forget?
We would love to know, so that we can go get it for our next guests.
The best vacation rental in Hawaii
We have stayed at many vacation rentals but this one makes #1 by far. The sunsets, privacy and location are all amazing . The owners give great attention to detail from beach toys to everything you will ever need in the kitchen. The beds are extremely comfortable. We will be back.
Spacious and welcoming home away from home :)
This was a wonderful home for our family of 6 adults. Views are amazing
and its very spacious and comfortable. The location is very convenient for visiting all parts of the island.
Mahalo Carol for your kind words.
We enjoyed having you here.
You have to admit, we had some interesting times to remember. LOL.
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!
You are so welcome! Please come back and see us again sometime.
Sue and Walt
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!
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.
