About Susan Hamiltn

We are tropical fruit farmers and owners of Plant It Hawaii, fruit tree nursery. We have been farming on island for about 40 years. My husband and our daughter ride horses and enjoy team roping together. I am an avid walker and love to swim at dawn in the blue Pacific. I also enjoy drawing and painting. We love to camp and to travel and when we travel we use VRBO or Homeaway as our home base. We provide a clean and comfortable house with everything you need and want to make your stay like home.

Susan Hamiltn purchased this guest house in 2000

Why Susan Hamiltn chose Kurtistown

We built this house for Bob's mother to live in as she aged. The house is wheelchair accessible and spaciously designed for ease and comfort. We live close by and share the same driveway, though it is difficult to see to one house from the other. The two houses sit on about 35 acres., with orchard and pasture, and a stunning views of the sunrise and sometimes of the Volcano glow.

We love this quiet area, the open space and the ease to the highway to zip to town or visit the Volcano for a day hike or a week-end camp-out.

A spacious house in a nice orchard

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying in this house very much. The house is located in a beautiful orchard that is only about 6 miles from Hilo, on the way to the Volcano National Park. The house has three bedrooms and a large living room. It is much larger than other vacation homes we lived before. The owner is very nice and patient. Susan patiently answered many questions before our visit. Upon our arrival, she provided newly picked fruits from her orchard and showed us the best locations to see sea turtles on her ipad. We would highly recommend this house.

Beautiful house with wide assortment of commonly needed items.

Very nice and clean, well equipped. Our second time here and we plan to stay there regularly whenever we visit Big Island. A couple of items needed fixing; agreed with owner these could be deferred until after our visit. Owners were very hospitable.

Lovely house well stocked in quiet location just outside of Hilo

  • 4 of 5

The Guest House was perfect for our group of 5 adults. The home was very spacious with a outdoor patio where we could sit and enjoy the beautiful back yard and listen to the birds. Our hostesses Susi was very accommodating and kept us suppled with fresh papaya and any fruits from the trees on the lproperty. Our stay was very enjoyable and highly recommend this lovely home.The only problem was no place to hang the bathroom towels

A peaceful setting, private with pastoral views.

  • 5 of 5

Our HOME AWAY FROM HOME! The house itself was spacious, clean and well-designed. It was well supplied, with extra, thoughtful touches. We enjoyed being together in the family friendly dining area and out on the lanai, but had our own space when we wanted solitude. The large backyard orchard, including fruit on the trees, was magical. This was our second stay here, and we hope to come again.

Beautiful rural setting in a fruit orchard

  • 4 of 5

Friendly, accommodating owners, Susi and Bob who were responsive to our every need. Even sent their daughter to help remedy an email issue that we had.

Home is spacious and comfortable. Although the house is not air-conditioned, this was never a problem as there was always a beautiful cross breeze. We were greeted with a fresh tray of fruit and freshly squeezed orange juice straight from their orchard.

The home is situated close to Volcano Park (only a half hour away). Also close to Hilo.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you Susi, Bob and Kalisa (hope we spelled it right)

loved the location

perfect for us as we wanted something away from it all, yet convenient to Hilo and the volcano. Susi was great, went out of her way to be accessible and insure our comfort.

Hilo Beaches in Keaukaha
Car: necessary

We are located less than 30 minutes from Volcanoes National Park, where our Volcano has been active since 1983. Our Park is essentially a "Volcanic Drive-Thru", where you can walk in lava tubes, hike in craters and enjoy the diverse and raw Hawaii. At the moment (August 2016) the lava is pouring into the ocean making a new black sand beach. Viewing is possible by hiking, bicycling and/or by boat.

I daily enjoy a swim in the blue Pacific at Richardson Beach Park in Keaukaha in Hilo. The snorkeling is great there and it is a protected ocean bay; perfect for swimming, boarding, stand-up paddling or other ocean side activities. There are several beaches along the Keaukaha peninsula that provide various favorites for beach goers.
