About Leh-Lo Guesthouse
Nestled on a ridge, surrounded by unspoiled indigenous forest, Leh Lo offers superb views and oneness with nature. Bordering De Vasselot Nature Reserve, Leh Lo is part of Kuthumba Nature Reserve. So relax on the verandah and wait for the prolific bird life to come to you.
Soak up the sounds of the Vervet Monkeys and Knysna Loerie’s. Hike on Forestry Department trails from your doorstep, through the Tsitsikamma Forest, to the estuary of the Salt River and Nature’s Valley Beach - beautiful, secluded and peaceful. When the light fades, stand in fairy land when surrounded by the fireflies and the silence of the night.
Leh Lo is only 20 minutes from Plettenberg Bay, eight minutes from Monkey land and Birds of Eden and four minutes from Tenikwe Cat Rehab centre - you can have it all.
Self Catering Accommodation
Julay House (sleeps 6):
This spacious ecologically designed home lends itself to pure relaxation. This building in itself is worth gazing at for the materials used and extraordinary craftsmanship. The modern yet natural interiors lend to the sense of comfort. With its large undercover verandah that watches over the lawn, enclosed lily pond and indigenous Fynbos, one can unwind completely or watch the kids explore.
There is a romantic main bedroom upstairs boasting magnificent views of Formosa Peak, from the king size bed, as well as bedroom with two single beds which opens to the coolness and quiet of the forest. These bedrooms share a bathroom with a shower. Downstairs there is a private wing, with a draped queen bed and large en suite bathroom, with bath and outside bush shower. These all look out to the mysteries of the forest.
Julay has a large lounge with a wood burning fire place, a TV with limited DStv and a DVD player. The double volume kitchen (fully-equipped) and dining area open through double doors onto the verandah. Coming off the verandah is a sun room with space, away from it all.
