Anna,Dave and Penzy could not have been more helpful and were great for getting discounts on popular day trips!The rooms were pristine and I could not fault the accommodation especially since it was very reasonable.

Penzy and her husband were so friendly and helpful from the moment I walked through the door (really the moment I booked). They helped me book snorkeling and the Full Moon Party transport. They also made sure I was safe as I was doing the FM party on my own. The rooms are clean with tv, good air con and...

The place is really close to the best beach in Samui. The rooms are clean and of decent size. It is located in the most happening beach and almost everything is at a walking distance. It is a good location to dump your bags and go on exploring the archipelago. The place is good but the hospitality of Ms Penzy...

Rooms are cleaned each day, Coffee & Tea are complimentary in the lobby, DVD & Magazine selection in the lobby. Helpful advice and...

I've stayed at Penzy's Guesthouse for 5 nights. Our room was very clean and had all we needed, air con, fridge, safe box, TV (and DVD player). The room was also cleaned everyday and we had fresh towels daily. The guesthouse is located 3min walk from the beach and about 20-30mins from the main bars/restaurants. Both Penzy and Anna were...

Lovely little guesthouse run by the friendliest staff we have come across on our travels! Clean rooms and bathrooms, with everything you need including a fridge and even a DVD player with DVDs which is a nice little touch. Also a 3 min walk to the beach and same for the main strip of restaurants bars and shops!Would definitely recommend.

They also arranged our taxi to the airport. The room was comfortable and clean. And the Guesthouse is very close to the beach! We...

Penzy's guesthouse is 5 minutes' walk from the beach, a stone's throw from the restaurants, bars and massage parlors in Chaweng. I arrived by boat from Koh Tao and transfer to Penzy's was 150 Baht. The hosts were truly helpful and kind, they have arranged my trip to Eranda SPA to celebrate my birthday, booked snorkeling and safari tours for...

Penzy, her staff and husband were a god send! After a scary situation at another hostel, Penzy stayed up late to quickly set up accomodations. Not only is she fun and absolutly perfect, the hostels location was in a great spot and her advice was spot on.
