About Harvey Cohen

After 30 vacations to the Hawaiian Islands including stays at resorts and condos on Maui, Kauai, Oahu, and a dozen or more visits to the Big Island, Louise and Harvey chose the Mauna Lani as the perfect location for a vacation home. Our first visit to the Kona shore was in 1980 when there was only lava fields and two hotels. We fell in love with the beautiful landscape, the beaches, and the range of activities. There are dozens of golf courses, restaurants, shopping, and always somethings to do. As vacationers who make the journey from the East Coast every year, our kids, our parents and family members, and our friends have had memorable vacations at the Mauna Lani Resort. We look forward to sharing the Aloha experience with our guests at our home at the Villages.

Harvey Cohen purchased this townhome in 2013

Why Harvey Cohen chose Kohala Coast

The Villages at Mauna Lani is second to none related to the quality of the homes and amenities found within the community. Homes in The Villages vacation rent for a premium compared to other communities because of the size and quality of the homes and proximity to to the beaches and golf course. In addition it was furnished impeccably for the enjoyment of our guests, friends and family that frequently visit. The home is located just 1/4 mile from beaches and major hotels found within the resort. The Villages community center offers an exercise room and pool including children's pool and heated spa. Guests enjoy use of a gated beach and club with rental of this home also.

What makes this townhome unique

Wireless internet, HBO and Showtime channels, short stroll to community exercise facility and beach. Near the Fairmont Orchid and Mauna Lani Bay Hotels. Near 20 golf courses, Hapuna and Mauna Kea beach. Best weather in the entire state of Hawaii

Great retreat, great location, all the right toys.

  • 5 of 5

Six of us stayed here with plenty of space. We were never in each other's way, especially in the kitchen. It was roomy and could handle everyone working together to prepare fantastic meals.. Eating outside at the "other dining table" was a treat, whether it was breakfast (a papaya grand slam with delicious homemade banana, coconut pancakes) or dinner (grilled fresh ahi). Everything you need is in the condo from utensils to a smart TV. There is even a blue tooth speaker for your own music. Hapuna Beach--I love that beach--is just a stone's throw down the road, about 10-15 minutes from the highway intersection. And all the right toys are in the garage, boogie boards, beach chairs, umbrella, and more. Don't forget the rest of the island. Volcanoes NP (We actually saw spewing lava, i.e., splat,.) and snorkeling at the Place of Refuge cove were a hit. At the end of the day, the condo was a relaxing abode to "come home to." Our family will remember this Christmas for a long time.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your thoughtful review. The banana coconut pancakes for breakfast sound really good. We are glad you had a great time at our place on the Big Island. There are so many things to do at the Mauna Lani and around the Island that it makes it nice to have place to relax at the end of the day. We work closely with our onsite management team to try to maintain a great experience for our guests with the Aloha spirit. We look forward to having you back again for a special vacation.

Convenient location & well-stocked, just a few issues..

  • 4 of 5

First of all, I would like to say that it has been a pleasure working with this owner. He is quick to respond to questions and is very nice.

I traveled with my husband, in-laws and an almost 2-year old daughter. We were pleased that the condo was close to our favorite private beach, and within walking distance to the grocery store. There was enough space to accommodate all of us. The kitchen was very well-stocked and we were able to do a lot of cooking.

When we arrived the temperature in the facility was set at 74 degrees and it felt hot. It took over 48 hours to correct this issue because management said the owner needed to remotely allow/make this change. For a few days my father-in-law could not stand to be in the facility -- it was a little nuisance because we could not regulate the thermostat ourselves.

There are lots of little bugs everywhere. They were crawling around the bathtub where I would bathe my daughter. There were traps with sticky substances all over but still plenty of small critters. Not sure if that's normal?

When we were trying to barbecue the first gas tank ran out and we were told there was a spare in the garage. Later we learned this was empty too. It took another few days to get that situation sorted out so we were forced to find alternative dinner plans.

In the downstairs bedroom my father-in-law could not get access to the internet because of the walls blocking the router. He mentioned that that was a bit of an issue, too.

The yard was very nice, and again we loved the location. Thank you for allowing us to stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your detailed review. As always, we and our onsite management team work hard to ensure that each guest has a great visit. It appears we came up short on a number of issues for your stay and apologize. Regarding the "critters", being in the tropics, we do occasionally have a problem with ants, despite regular pest control. We have asked our service company to do another treatment to see if that can address the problem. I am also sorry that the temperature range was not comfortable for your guest. We do lock the thermostats at 74 as you have noted. For a high percentage of our guests, particularly with ceiling fans in every room and the dehumidified AC, 74 has been quite comfortable. When it is not, we always have our property manager adjust the thermostats. In the case of the internet access, our wireless router is located fifty feet away in the living room on the first floor. We are not sure what the problem is for access in the downstairs bedroom but will investigate. We look forward to having you as our guest in the future and wish you and you family Happy Holidays.

What a fantastic place.

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for three couples to stay while they enjoyed Hawaii. We each had our own bedroom and bathroom. Deciding who got which one was done by picking straws. There was tons of room inside, but the outside areas are where we spent most of our time. What a lovely lanai to have a morning coffee sitting on comfy seating! Then we moved to the smaller open lanai for breakfast! Happy hour back on the comfy seats, before barbequing supper and eating on the spacious outdoor table.

The facility was equipped with more items than we could use and there was a spice for any meal we wanted to cook. The store was steps away for those last minute forgotten items. It was truly a delightful space in a gorgeous setting.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your thoughtful review. Both lanais are great for enjoying the Hawaiian outdoors over a meal or coffee in the morning. Many guests find the relaxation of cooking on the grill with a glass of wine in the evening the perfect way to end the day. It sounds like you and your friends had a great time on the Big Island and the convenience of the Mauna Lani Resort. We look forward to having you back as guests in the future.

Mauna lani

  • 4 of 5

Harvey's home worked for us perfectly, 6 adults and each couple had their own bedroom and bathroom. The townhome was very clean and well stocked to do some cooking. We used the outside cooking area 3 times and it was enjoyable and comfortable. We did use the living room TV to watch some incredable events Cubs winning the world series and the presidential election. We did a lot of sight seeing every day and the home is a good base to start your adventures. We had some minor problems and Lisette and Stacy were quick to get them resolved. I would recommend this property to anyone and hope we get to go back again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review of our property. We are so glad you and your party enjoyed your visit to the Big Island and the Mauna Lani Resort. As with all homes, there are the occasions requiring a repair person and are glad to hear that our property managers, Lissette and Stacy were able to quickly address them. We look forward to having you back as our guests on your next visit.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start? Of the 2 dozen or so rentals we have used from VRBO this, without question, was the best.

Most thoroughly equipped rental EVER. Bring a toothbrush and your clothes, nothing else required. Dozens of spices and staples, it was

so wonderful to not have to start from scratch. Cannot tell you what "mechaye" it was.

Fabulous, fabulous kitchen. High quality luxurious furnishings,uniquely decorated just like our own home!

Comfortable beds, spacious showers, large kitchen outdoors with several pieces of sturdy attractive patio furniture.

Loved the balcony off of the upstairs master.

We grilled all our dinners!

Perfect location mere steps to the grocery and shopping center, easy to get into and out of Mauna Lani property.

Incredible den TV and audio/video equipment. A couple of caveats. If the electricity goes off in the unit (the entire property went dark for a few hours one day)the Dacor glass cooktop has to be reset before it can be used again. Despite copious information on everything in home, this piece of info was missing. A quick Google search helped us figure it out. Next, remember that paradise comes with bugs. Specifically little ants. They are a problem on the entire island. We had minimal problems thanks to lots of ant traps in the home, but make sure and put ALL FOOD in the frig before going to bed and seal everything in Ziplock bags if leaving food anywhere indoors or outdoors. Don't leave dishes unwashed in the sink. Again, this is a wonderful wonderful rental that doesn't feel like a rental at all. You are in for a spectacular non-cookie cutter rental when you choose this townhome. The contact woman, Lisette is also an asset and was very knowledgeable. The garage also has lots of snorkels, fins, boogie boards, kids toys, noodles, beach umbrellas, really, everything you need for all ages to have fun in the water.

Thank you again for sharing your home with us. We hope to be back one day.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for such a detailed review. Louise and I are so glad you and your family had a great time on the Big Island and a great stay at our unit. Our hope is to provide a rental unit that feels like home and as you have noted, to provide the comforts of home starting in the kitchen. Likewise, we appreciate your sharing of good advice for avoiding the challenges of living in paradise when food is left out. Keeping everything sealed or in the fridge is excellent advice. We look forward to sharing our home with you in the future.

Perfect In Every Way

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this rental home. The home is well appointed and incredibly comfortable. It was very clean, well stocked and included lots of little touches that made it easy to settle in. It was perfect for our family of five. The amenities throughout the community were first class. The owner and property manager were responsive, accommodating and very easy to deal with. Over the years, we have rented 10-20 homes around the country using VRBO/Homeaway, and this home was hands-down our favorite.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind and thoughtful review. We too have rented quite a few times from VRBO and have noticed that there are differences in terms of the little things that make a house a home. We have tried to provide the comforts and conveniences that make our guests feel at home while they are on vacation. It is gratifying to know that you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to seeing you in the future.
