Aloha and welcome to Volcano Village. E komo mai e ‘ai — I invite you to partake of the many wonders of this land located at the summit of Kilauea and to awaken to the many splendors of Volcano, Hawaii.
Discover the Treasure House located at 19-3938 Keonelehua Avenue. This is a heavenly haven, a modern upcountry rainforest home planned for the executive lifestyle. Ohia (Metrosideros collina polymorpha), the native hardwood myrtle, and the Hapu’u tree fern (Cibotium splendens) abound on these 2.25 secluded acres at the center of enchanting Volcano Village.
The home features a master loft, covered deck, an office nook and an ensuite bath. The second bedroom is planned for privacy and has its own separate entrance, a Murphy bed and all the comforts of a relaxing retreat. In the main living area, there is a cozy gourmet kitchen with a convenience island, Viking appliances and, for the connoisseur, a wine-chiller.
In making Volcano her home, Pele has chosen wisely! Living in Volcano Village, the threshold to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, the native rainforest spreads all around you. While Hawaii lies within the tropics, Volcano is almost 4000’ ASL elevation making it a relatively pest-free zone lending to peaceful days and silent nights (seldom does one see a mosquito or hear the whistle of the coqui).
Just a hop away is Cooper Center, the heart of the neighborhood and a community gathering place for classes, local meetings, yoga, aerobics, singing, a bookstore and flea market. Cooper Center is also home to Volcano’s popular Sunday Farmer’s Market. (And you can’t beat the free Wi-Fi connection daily 7am to 8pm!) The people who live in Volcano highly prize their top-of-the-mountain perch, far above the slow hustle of Hilo, but only a few hours drive to anywhere on the island.
What is Volcano, Hawaii but a powerful crucible and yet a cradle, a lush rainforest yet a stark desert, the musical call of rare birdsong yet the silence of a lava wilderness, or an embrace of friends yet a multitude of solitary soul-searching moments? These are the facets of Volcano Village, its environs, the people and the appeal of Kilauea. These are the experiences, the personality and energizing spirit shared when you retreat to live in Wao Akua, a place Hawaiians believe is the realm of God. And you can come home to the mountain at 19-3938 Keonelehua Avenue.
