By far the best Guesthouse I've ever stayed at. From the moment I checked in I felt I was staying with family. Penzy and Anna Banana are the most genuinly friendly people I have met in Thailand. Rooms are cleaned each day, Coffee & Tea are complimentary in the lobby, DVD & Magazine selection in the lobby. Helpful advice and... More

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...

Penzy guesthouse is at the same location as sunny 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

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.

What a wonderful place to stay! The owners were so helpful and friendly. They gave us lots of good tips and set us up with a great tour to Ang Thong park with a great discount. They also arranged our taxi to the airport. The room was comfortable and clean. And the Guesthouse is very close to the beach! We... More

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... More

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.

Very clean guest house, great local advice (like what public transportation prices really should cost) and extremely accommodating! David even got up extra early to put on a NFL game we wanted to watch back home that was only accessible in his office. Penzy is a sweetheart and they both want nothing but the best for you and the rest... More

We originally booked just 2 nights in Penzy's however we quickly extended our stay. The rooms were spacious and spotlessly clean, and Penzy and David were excellent hosts; very kind and very friendly. We got the ferry from Krabi and upon arriving in Koh Samui we took a red communal taxi into Chewang at a cost of 100 baht per... More

Fantastic value and location at a reasonable price. What really sets it apart though are the staff, nowhere i've stayed has made me feel so welcome and as many other reviews state Penzy herself is very helpful in terms of booking tours/transport. Would have definitely struggled without her! Only slight issue is that the wifi doesn't always reach the rooms... More
