The villa was built in 2009 for a Dutch couple, and the name is of the villa is derived from the owner’s first name Leo, which is the word for 'Today' in Kiswahili. Local Swahili people love to give people nicknames and this one stuck! The villa stands all on one level with a large elevated veranda with dining table, chairs and hammocks to chill in the soft evening breeze. Above the surrounding bush and garden you’ll have a clear view of the waterhole and the game and birds that regularly visit. Walkways around the villa lead back to more private terraces outside each bedroom - extra quiet places to sit and ponder on your relaxed life! The whole building, including the terraces and veranda, is covered by traditional makuti (coconut leaf) roof.

The main entrance is through a giant traditional carved Zanzibari door, leading into the extremely large open living and dining room. The room is fully furnished with a big second dining table and chairs, modern comfy sofas and chairs surrounding a coffee table, and entertainment box including satellite TV and DVD player. Wireless internet is available throughout, and games and books are available. At the end of the living room is the semi-open well-equipped modern kitchen and stock room with large fridge/freezer and electric hob.
