Just arrived back from Thailand after nearly a month travelling and have to stay this was one of the best places I stayed namely due to Penzy, David and their staff! They were extremely helpful, not only with matters concerning the guesthouse but with offering advice (safety tips), organising discounted tours/transfers and helping with other issues (e.g when my phone...

This is a budget hotel in a great location with friendly staff who are happy to organise cheap transfers and travel for you. No frills but great price, had all the basics. Hire a motorbike and ride around town.

We have been travelling in 4 different countries and staying in many hostels, koh samui being our last place to visit because we were flying from there. Our expectations were low but we had a fantastic time- mostly made by feeling so welcome by the staff here. As two teenage girls travelling, at some hostels and hotels we felt a... More

Anna and Penzy were such lovely hosts and were happy to help with all of our questions and queries, some of the friendliest people I have met in while in Thailand. Our room was cleaned every day with fresh towels which was a bonus. Room was very well equipped with a/c, a safe, fridge and tv all included and looked... More

Visited penzys looking for a room for 2 nights, after asking the gentleman at the front of we could see a room he told us it wasn't worth his time to show us a room. We read on hostelworld the rooms were different than in the ads. He was snobby and then told us it's what all hotels do because... More

I loved everything about this guesthouse. I was travelling solo and was always made to feel very welcomed. Penzy, David & Anna went out of their way to make sure I had the best stay. The room was big & super clean. The location is great, a short walk to the beach and shops. I'll definitely stay here again on... More

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... More

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... More
