Vacation Rental


Dream vacation on a cool, secluded 20-acre coffee plantation

Discover Mountain Thunder Retreat, a tranquil and serene get-away nestled on the cool slopes of dormant volcano, Hualalai.

This vintage-style plantation home is located on a 20-acre organic coffee farm. We are a quick 20-minute drive from the airport and are only 15 minutes from downtown Kona and multiple white-sand beaches.

The 4-bedroom home has been renovated to add modern luxuries including a gourmet kitchen with a brand-new double oven, Viking range, dishwasher and coffee/wine bar. The vintage charm hasn’t been lost, however, with 30-foot ceilings in the living area, detailed crown molding.

The property boasts 3 master bedrooms (2 California King and 1 Queen) and a playfully-decorated kid’s room. The huge covered lanai on the main level is equipped with rocking chairs, dining for 8, a gas grill and gas firepit so guests can enjoy our legendary sunsets. A second private lanai is located off of one of the upstairs master suites with views of our breathtaking coastline and organic coffee farm.

The temperatures are cool and comfortable year-round and heaters are located throughout for those chilly mornings. Be sure to pack a jacket! We are an easy walk from multiple hiking trails, including our own on-site Nature Trail full of tropical plants, wildlife and lava tubes. We even invite you to pick your own avocado, citrus, guava and bananas grown right here on our property in season.

Guests are welcomed in with a complimentary 4x4 tour of our 20-acre property upon arrival or at any time throughout their stay. Another benefit of staying on a privately-owned coffee farm? We will provide each booking with freshly roasted coffee to enjoy during your visit!

Jeremy, Texas

The house was fully remodeled with a fantastic kitchen, bedrooms, bathrooms, etc.. The view of the coffee plantation, gardens and down to Kona is special. Especially when taken in with a cup of organic, estate grown coffee in front of the fire table. Highly recommend”

 The Mountain Thunder Retreat home is a treat for all the senses…You're seemingly transcended into another world. A world where only the important things matter- family, nature, being together, celebrating life, gratitude for all the blessings.”

This was our first family vacation to the Big Island, ages range from 5 to 75 year old. We all loved the property and the beautiful house. It had everything we needed… What we all loved the most was the free coffee samples, tea samples and complimentary fruits. It was all so thoughtful of the owners. The free atv tour and 20% off from the store next door was awesome too!

SPECTACTULARLY PERFECT!! Wonderful presentation of a great home on an active coffee farm. The pictures accurately described the amenities, and all the little special touches were fantastic--flowers throughout with fruit basket and especially the Wonderful Coffee sampler gift basket. Totally above and beyond!!”

We were the first guests at this property and cannot say enough about the amazing experience we had staying here. First, the house itself is gorgeous, specious and had everything we needed. It's beautiful. Second, the views are amazing and you're quite isolated perched up at 3,200ft above Kailua-Kona. It's only about a 20 min drive to downtown and the beaches and well worth the drive.

I really cannot say enough about this vacation rental. You're not just getting a great house but an experience and adventure staying here. We will remember it for a long time.”
