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

We loved this property for our annual vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property for our annual vacation. We had a group of 7 adults and one toddler and the house had plenty of space. The owner and the local property manager were very responsive, although we had no need to contact them after the booking and arriving in Kona. Everything was in order and the information on the listing was accurate. We loved the outdoor bbq, bathrooms off each bedroom and the kitchen was stocked with extras (condiments, spices, food storage supplies). Beach gear was great, as we attempted to visit every beach on the island (large towels, back-pack chairs, insulated bags, reusable ice packs). The pool was great for the toddler and the hot tub was spectacular. Foodland was an excellent grocery store even though we had stocked up on basics at Costco. It was great having it so close to grab additional particular items almost daily. We used our rental cars a lot, so having a garage was nice to keep them cool and out of the sun. My only suggestion would be to have more places to hang up beach towels to air dry, but maybe I missed seeing a collapsable rack. We would certainly stay in this complex again and at Mr. Cohen's unit. Mauna Lani Resort area is very nice and and the HOA (private) beach, shoreline trails, ponds/petroglyphs parks and sidewalks are a great amenities.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your informative review of your vacation and stay at our unit. We are delighted that you and your family had a great time on the Big Island. We also appreciate your suggestion of more space for drying beach towels. We will investigate a larger rack since the collapsible rack we have in the laundry is more suited for clothing. As you have noted, we always are interested in suggestions for making our guests' stays more relaxing and more convenient. Louise and I look forward to having you back as our guests in the future. Mahalo.

Fantastic Property -Well Stocked, Great Layout, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 10 days at this property with two kids, my wife and my two parents. The layout of this property is fantastic and even better in person than in the pictures. The bedrooms were great with comfortable beds and each with its own bathroom and shower. The kitchen and outdoor area are wonderful as advertised! We cooked meals all but two nights so used the kitchen frequently and what we loved the most besides the layout that really separated this property from other properties we have rented is how well it is stocked. The kitchen had every appliance and item you could need to feel like you were at home! We also really enjoyed how well stocked the garage was for daily activities with snorkel gear, boogie boards, sand toys, noodles, beach chairs, beach umbrella, and coolers to use (and ice packs in the freezer). The property is in a great location in that you can walk to the pool and exercise facility in 1 minute and walk to the shopping facilities in 5 minutes. We also found this property great for morning or afternoon walks and runs in that everyday we found a great place to go whether it was the tide pools and fish ponds fronting the Mauni Lani hotel, the fisherman's trail, Petroglyph Park, the nearby lava tubes/shelter caves or going to 49 Black Sand Beach. I would definitely recommend this property to others! Mahalo!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your very thorough and thoughtful review. We are so glad you had a great time on your vacation. My wife and I have tried to anticipate the things we as well as our guests would find convenient for a stay. The items for the kitchen in particular have made a real difference in that many families want to have meals at home but don't want to have to stock a kitchen in order to cook. We have tried to provide an "at-home" experience on the Big Island for our guests. We look forward to having you back again as our guests.

What an incredible condo!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from spending two weeks in this fantastic condo. There were 6 in our group (4 adults and two teenagers). It was absolutely perfect as it is very spacious and the floor plan is ideal for that number. The condo is very well equipped with everything for the beach and for your stay while in the condo. I appreciated the well stocked kitchen as we preferred to make dinners most nights. The BBQ and outside kitchen on the lanai was a bonus that we enjoyed. Harvey and Louise were very helpful with the booking process and when we arrived, Lissette was available to help us get settled in. Thank you for a beautiful condo to stay in while we enjoy the Big Island!

Owner's Response: We appreciated the opportunity to serve as your hosts for your trip to the Big Island and thank you for your lovely review. BBQs relaxing on the lanai are definitely a favorite way for guests to finish a day after a full day of activities. We are so glad you had a great time and look forward to having you back in the future.

Couldn't have been more perfect

  • 5 of 5

We spent a month enjoying the luxurious home in the sunshine. The house is spacious, meticulously clean and well stocked. We had planned this holiday to be a celebration for three birthdays and a special wedding anniversary. Not everyone stayed with us, however everyone felt welcomed onto the beautiful lanai. What a treat to be able to eat every meal outdoors. The kitchen was perfect, making cooking a pleasure not a chore. I couldn't believe how well stocked the "extras" were, not having to run to the store for every little thing. The equipment, from the blender to the coffee grinder etc is all top notch. We enjoyed walking the area every morning, there are great trails around. It is a bit of a drive into Kona or to the Volcano park, but you just plan the day and most of the time we just spent enjoying being outside on the lanai. There was even a yoga mat to use, I had brought a yoga DVD with me and enjoyed the space upstairs in the master bedroom to be able to practice most days. The local manager and person available for any questions and issues were extremely helpful, filling up the propane tank and making sure we knew about recycling etc. Thank you for sharing your place - we really did have the perfect vacation to celebrate with our family. I would highly recommend this choice.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind and thoughtful review. We and our management team work persistently to ensure that our guests have a great time when they stay at our villa. Our guests regularly tell us how they enjoy the amenities at the Mauna Lani Resort as well as the those we supply in the kitchen at our unit. We recognize that part of the experience we can provide is minimizing the number of times our guests have to run out to get an ingredient that they would most likely expect to have at home or have to make do when a kitchen utensil they normally use isn't there. Louise and I regularly find new ways to enhance the experience and do our best to make our guests feel at home on the Big Island. This is particularly true for guests celebrating special occasions in Hawaii. We are so glad you and your family had a great time and look forward to seeing you in the future.
