La Capanna, italian for 'The Cabin'

This is how it all started:

My grandfather, Guido Giacometti, came to Hawaii in 1902 to work at Olaa Plantation. He had a chemical engineering degree from the Polytechnic school in Zurich. He was born in Northern Italy, which at the time was ruled by Austria. He came here because the sugar industry was expanding, and the opportunity for a young engineer was far better than staying in Europe. He assisted in the construction of the mill and its machinery, and remained Mill Superintent for more than 40 years. He bought La Capanna in the 1920s, as a weekend place away from the hot weather at lower elevations. Volcano Village was a new neighborhood sold to many folks who wanted the same conditions. He spoke German, Italian and other languages, and became a good friend of Dr. Thomas A. Jaggar, the first volcanologist who lived at Volcano and helped to set up the USGS observatory. I remember going to the Jaggar home with my grandfather, and being rather bored with the foreign language discussions that the two men held. Though Guido did not speak Greek, he was a good friend of George Lycurgus, the well-known operator of the Volcano House Hotel, within the Park. The house saw plenty of use, especially during eruptions at Kilauea Caldera. My parents lived in Kona and friends and family used the place for years. My mother died in 1997, and the place was empty until we renovated it in 2002. Now we are happy to have others enjoy it as a vacation spot.

The property includes a fenced back yard, which allows us to bring our Brittanys when we visit. Renters can arrange for their pets as well, with advance booking.

Volcano Village in the last several decades has attracted a number of artists, and there are many studios and other artisan activities. The Volcano Art Center is close by.

The Friends of Hawaii Volcano National Park is a local organization that works with the National Park personnel to sponsor hikes, lectures and other activities relating to the volcano environment.

Alternatively, La Capanna provides complete facilities for a quiet stay. Phone, cable television, and wireless internet service is provided. We try to provide a number of aging books for the curious.

Finally, our guest book, which began with my grandparents in 1927, provides a history of many visits, with amusing comments. Please visit, enjoy, and record your thoughts for history!

Volcano Village is less than a mile from the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park entrance on Big Island. The village is a small, rural place, populated by a diverse community including many artists and near a number of high quality restaurant experiences.

La Capanna is a vacation home available for short term rental. The cabin is fully restored, with three bedrooms, two baths and a full kitchen. It comfortably sleeps six, and is less than an hour from beaches and other parts of the Big Island of Hawaii’s easterly side.

It is at 3800 foot elevation, with a cool and sometimes damp climate. The cabin has a wood burning stove, cable TV, internet access and local telephone service. Wireless telephone reception is excellent, with a Verizon cell site within a few hundred feet.

A trip to the Big Island should include time at the world class resorts of the Kona-Kohala Coast, and a few days or more in the cool uplands exploring the volcanoes that made the place, and are still at work.

While visiting the Volcano area, don't forget to take in the Farmer's Market on Sundays where you'll find plenty of friendly Volcano residents that are willing to share stories of the area and partake in the fresh foods and crafts made and grown locally.

About Donna

I think you'll appreciate the natural wood interior and the native plants throughout the yard. The house is considered a copy of Adirondack architecture, and has been included in the historic home tours of the village. We were fortunate to have a master renovation architect and contractor when we brought the place to current standards.

When we visit, I like to bring my Brittany dogs to run in the cool volcano air and they love it! The backyard and that makes an excellent yard for children as well as pets if they have been approved at the rental.

Many family adventures have occurred here, and I hope you'll be able to create your own too. Hiking trails throughout the park will keep you busy, but don't forget to walk the streets of Volcano Village too.

Why Donna chose Volcano

This Hawaiian - Italian home has been in the family for years..just read the guest book! Volcano Village is a special place, and that is why it has drawn travelers from all over the world. I love the sensitivity of the local artists, and the beauty surrounding the place.

What makes this cottage unique

Take in the complete offerings of the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Watch the Volcano Erruption movies, visit the local Art Gallery, hike the trails and drive to watch the volcano flow, the latter subject to the whims of Madame Pele, our volcano goddess!

Beautiful cottage with lots of character. Very well maintained. Basic odds and ends are in the kitchen (salt, pepper, oil, other various leftovers), so that is really handy. However, this large property does back up to the highway Rt 11, while it is quiet at night, morning traffic is pretty loud. Food shopping options in town VERY limited - bring what you need, or eat out (also rather limited options).

Owner's Response: Thank you David for the Review!

I'm glad you enjoyed your time in Volcano. As to location of the property; I only would note that the property does not back up to the Highway as there is a large parcel of woods between the house and the highway. This hasn't been an issue for any guests in the past, but yes; is it near the 4 lane highway, and near to the National Park entrance. With the cold air....the windows are usually closed.

There are 7 eateries within walking distance. Perhaps you didn't find them all? There is a Thai restaurant, The Lava Rock Cafe, the Upscale Volcano Lodge, a coffee shop, a Fusion restaurant, at one of the stores, and 2 stores with sandwiches and hot bar at the lower store. Again, we aim to please...and hope you'll be able to visit again!
Aloha,
Donna
