The rooms were nice, everything was pretty basic, but there was a fridge, which was probably the highlight of the room. It was pretty annoying that we had to turn the AC off every time we left the room, meaning that we always came back to a humid and stuffy room. It did cool down pretty quickly though. Penzy was...

We wanted to be by Chaweng but we didn't want to be kept awake all night so we were happy that we chose Sunny Guesthouse. Such friendly staff, who really helped us on our onward journey to Tao. Very clean and the rooms were surprisingly spacious. More expensive than some of the other places we stayed in, but still really... More

Penzy and her husband will make your staying in the beautiful island of Samui even more pleasurable! Beside being very nice and friendly people they can give you a lots of advices and offer lots of services (or can recommend you): english breakfast, tours, motorbike rent, thai massage, laundry service and even ironing! Should I ever go back to Samui... More

We stayed 5 nights and were really impressed overall with this accommodation. It is walking distance to Chaweng beach but is still nice and quiet. The rooms are clean and spacious and the bed was the most comfortable we have found on our travels through Southeast Asia to date. The staff are very helpful and go out of their way... More

Sunny guesthouse is at the same location as penzy guesthouse and is run by the same amazing person penzy. From the moment you book and receive a welcome email you get a feeling for the place. The rooms and hostel are really clean and with comfy beds. It's at night time when you can appreciate its good location - close... More

Located just five minutes from Chaweng Beach, I couldn't really fault the Sunny and Penzy guesthouses. The rooms were comfortable, clean and had all the basics that you need (including a safe, cold drinks, free hot drinks, good shower room, air con). What I really liked was the friendliness of the owners. I stayed there for the Full Moon Party... More

We stayed at the Sunny guesthouse 5 nights in the run up to Christmas. Although they were really busy our room on the top floor was so quiet! Best nights sleep we had in the month and a half backpacking so far. Although the stairs are steep and there is no lift, it's not too bad. Room was very clean... More

As other reviewers have noted, Sunny is a sister guesthouse to the Penzy guesthouse - the reviews for which we based our stay upon, which turned out to be a very good decision. Sunny is located a few minutes walk away from the centre of town, but still near to plenty of restaurants and cafes, just without most of the... More

After travelling all over SE Asia, we came to Sunny Guesthouse, the sister of Penzy Guesthouse for a 3 night stay. Even from the outset we were impressed with Penzy's welcome email on booking our room which gave us helpful info on the location etc and made us less apprehensive about the type of place we were expecting (as we...
