About Leanne Cohen

This is the South Course at Mauna Lani. Unbelievable views! The 10th hole runs right behind our townhouse and the clubhouse is just around the corner as is the Mauna Lani Beach Club. Everything within the Mauna Lani Resort is within a two mile radius.

Leanne Cohen purchased this townhome in 2007

Why Leanne Cohen chose Puako

We've vacationed at the Mauna Lani for over 30 years and when we thought about where it is that makes us happiest, it was here. The timing was right for us to have our own place to come to. We are sharing it now with family, friends and guests until we can be there for longer periods of time.

What makes this townhome unique

We get the benefits of a smaller complex within the larger Mauna Lani Resort. We can walk to 49 Black Sand Beach and the Mauna Lani Beach Club as well as take off on a hike and be hiking the fisherman's trail within minutes along the gorgeous coastline. We are so close to shopping, restaurants, grocery stores and the hotels, but our two story townhome is our own private space to come home to. We can be at one of 8 golf courses is less than 10 minutes and a the Big Island Country Club an easy thirty minute drive offering exceptional golf. We can work out and play tennis at the Mauna Lani Raquet Club and have world class spa treatments at the top spas.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Aussies loved it

  • 5 of 5

We 7 Aussies had a great stay at Leanne's golf villa at Mauna Lani. We thought the living areas might be a bit small for 7 adults but no problem at all.

Modern, clean, well presented and communicating with Leanne during the booking process and the stay was easy.

Close to shops at Mauna Lani and King's/Queen's shops at Waikoloa Beach Resort, and with access to the Beach Club, a great beach and cafe/bar.

Thanks Leanne for access to your lovely golf villa.

Owner's Response: It was so great to host you all at our Golf Villa. It really is so comfortable for up to 8 adults. Plenty of space to relax and hang out and you are right that there is so much to do nearby, but you can do nothing at all if you want to just lounge at the beach club or sit quietly on one of our lanais. So glad to have given a new experience to those who had never been to the Big Island. Thank you for treating our home as if it was your own. Guests like you are very much appreciated. Mahalo! Leanne

Great home, great location

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful house in the Mauna Lani resort area. Perfect for our party of 5 adults and 2 kids. Access to the pool and the beach club was easy and we filled our time with snorkeling nearby at the many great beaches. The beach club is perfect for small children as the water entry is calm and the sand is nice. Also check out Black Sand Beach 49 which is almost across the street for a little more adventurous swim and snorkel. We loved all the nearby attractions, Hapuna, Puako, and even Kona are all easy enough to get to. The shops at the bottom of the hill were convenient as well.

We loved Golf Villa D-3 and would be happy to return again.

Great house, great location and great hosts

  • 5 of 5

Leanne's house is big, comfortable and located i an exclusive part of the Big Island. Everything about the house, the resort and surrounding areas is exactly as described in the pressentation. The house is inviting you to stay and relax at home, especially eating outside, along the golf course morning and evening was a great pleasure.

We toured a lot, either south towards Kona, Kakahae Kay national park, with it's 2 most beautiful beaches on the island, which you need to visit during your stay and north to Hapuna Beach State Park (also very beautiful, 5 USD access cost), Mauna Kea Beach and Hawi.

Within the resort we enjoyed the short walk to the pool and the pool itself, with pleasant talks at night time, with other residents or holiday visitors, and the owner's Beach Club, appr. 2 km away, where access is provided. Note the trail called Fishermanns trail, where you can walk or run along the coast line.

The local shops at Mauna Lani or the shops at Waikoloa is also great, with several Hawaiian style / Polynesian shows at night time.

I also have to give Leanne the highest score for being a great host as well. Very communicative, helpfull and with valuable knowledge about the island and places to visit. Overall a super experience, which we can highly recommend to any family.

Also, give yourself time to talk to people living on the island, is a great experience, they are always interested in a talk and are extreamely calm and friendly.

Owner's Response: I am so happy you found D-3 so comfortable and inviting for your family. It was very exciting being able to host a World Championship Ironman competitor from a foreign country who saw the beauty in the people and land on the Big Island. We have loved the Mauna Lani area for so long and we are so happy when visitors come to experience this special slice of paradise at our Golf Villa, the whole resort including the owner's Beach Club and our lagoon style pool area as well as all the unique places all over the island. Mahalo and A Hui Hou!

At home in Hawaii!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome stay at Leanne's home! The house is not only located in a beautiful location on the Mauna Lani Golf Course but so very comfortable! I stayed with my family and children and everyone was more than comfortable! Amenities galore helped with cooking, sleeping comfortably and spending time at the beach with shade thanks to the umbrella provided! I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone.

We didn't spend too much time at the house but one thing that would have been nice is a better variety of channels. There wasn't much to watch when we did find time to just relax and not do anything during our long stay.

Hawaii never disappoints and neither did this home!

This was our second time staying at this beautiful townhome in Mauna Lani. It has a lovely view from the patio and second story deck. It has 2-bedrooms on the upper level and a bedroom on the main level - for those that cannot do stairs. This property makes the perfect spot for our family vacation! The owners were great to work with. We hope to come back!
