    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 and 2 fireplaces.

    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.

    As a special offer, our guests will receive 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.

    There is a 3-night minimum stay. Check out is at 11 AM and check in is at 4:00 PM. Early check-ins or late check-out's may be requested through the owner. This is a non-smoking, no pets property. Hawaii Tax ID 012-427-8784-01.

    Had a wonderful stay at Mountain Thunder. The house is spacious and fully equipped. The huge lanai has a great view - enjoyed many mornings with a great cup of coffee and many evenings around the fire table. We had a special family vacation on the Big Island and John and his crew made it especially memorable. Would highly recommend if staying on the Big Island.

    We had a wonderful stay at the retreat. The house itself is beautiful, well-appointed, and just as the photos depict. The tour with John was an informative treat. After long days hiking, snorkeling and exploring, returning to the retreat was blissful. Thank you for sharing this incredible property with us. (And the coffee is fantastic!)

    Traveling with a group of 5 women friends and we had the extreme pleasure of staying at Mountain Thunder for 8 days. The house is incredible with lots of space indoors and out. Kitchen is huge and was a great space for all the cooking we did. It is fairly well stocked but was a treasure hunt to find things in all the drawers and cupboards! Provided coffee was a special treat and we all took something home from the great shop next door. Beds were comfortable and bathrooms are roomy and functional. We enjoyed the ability to eat inside or out; great conversation area in the living room or out on the beautiful deck around the fire table with amazing views. House is an easy distance from Kailua-Kona but you feel like you are all alone in a remote jungle area! Because of the elevation, it is definitely cooler than being down in town so bring some warmer clothes for time spent here. Coffee plantation tour was a highlight of our trip and the owner and staff were very responsive and friendly. Overall, we had a wonderful time and would definitely consider coming back on a future trip.

    Our every comfort was considered at Mountain Thunder Retreat, from the personalized welcome and fruit in the foyer to the basket of special reserve coffees and teas in the beautifully appointed kitchen. This is a beautiful, spacious, inviting home with restful aesthetic detail.
