The staff here are very friendly, welcoming and very good english. They are very helpful when needing to organise anything and seem to be cheaper than a lot of places. The room was a good size and relatively clean. Air con was not that great but did work. Overall comfy and clean and a very good price. Would stay here...

Lovely little Guesthouse in a good location. Staff were so nice. I was ill with a fever on arrival, they moved us into a more expensive room as it was quieter, and kept asking how I was. Good base for exploring the island. Would definitely recommend.

Having stayed here 4 years go I was glad to see that nothing has really changed in this guest house. Still run by Penzy and her husband, you'll never find a friendlier host than this, she'll go out of her way to do everything for you and with her list of contacts she really can sort out pretty much anything...

We initially booked in here for three nights but due to the flood situation in Koh Samui we ended up staying for an extra night - we couldn't have asked for better hosts during a rubbish time! The place is budget accommodation but has everything you need, the room is clean and cleaned daily with towels. When we arrived Penzy...

I opted for the private room when I stayed here because I don't like the group dorm scene. The room was beautiful, clean, and comfortable. They always provided water and fresh linens, there was a desk space, storage, sitting bench, and a small deck. The best part about our stay was the owners. They are incredibly nice, knowledgable, and always...

I really enjoyed my stay at penzy. Very close to the beach and local amenities. Furthermore the care that they showed to each guest was first class. I lost my wallet in the taxi on the way and only realised when I arrived. Penzy arranged for it to be brought back using people she knew. Thank you very much!

Penzy and David were very accommodating during our stay. They helped us to book a tour and hire a jeep, as well as providing us with local knowledge of the area. The rooms were very spacious and comfy. The guesthouse itself is in a good area just off the main road and very close to the beach.

Guesthouse was immaculate and the service from Penzy, her husband and the staff was fabulous. They genuinely seemed to care about us and everyone staying there! About a 30min walk to Ark Bar but there are loads of restaurants and a beach closeby. Would definitely recommend, and return!

Staff are lovely, very helpful. Penzy is so so helpful, can't do enough for you. Place is clean, comfy and the DVDs to watch were welcome. Great location for bars/beach but not noisy at night. I left my purse here and travelled to another destination in Thailand. Penzy informed me of this and was kind enough to post it to...
