About Sally Wei

I(Sally) am a classical pianist living in San Francisco with my husband(Greg). We also have a German Shepherd dog that was adopted. As a graduate of the Conservatory, our tenant will hear practices from myself on the piano and my students. For recent years have I devoted myself to Buddhist Tzu Chi Foundation, an international charitable organization.

I am also operating a Tea lounge in Santa Rosa after I was certified as a Tea Sommelier in England. If you do have a chance to visit Sonoma County in the beautiful Wine Country, you may want to stop by for a cup of fine tea at Sally's Parlor.

Sally Wei purchased this house in 1991

Why Sally Wei chose San Francisco

A beautiful Redwood tree attracted my attention at the first sight. This charming cottage was built in 1907. We have named it 'the Little Red House in San Francisco'.

What makes this house unique

Clean, simple, quiet and safe.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a wonderful, clean, calm, studio in a lovely neighborhood. Very Zen-like. No TV but strong internet. Includes an unexpected outside area with seating and peaceful view. Easy bus transportation steps away so great for day or evening, and avoid parking frustration.

Very nice room

  • 5 of 5

Small. Perfect for my week of yoga. I went to class on the 43 line and returned home to a quiet space. The price was great. The host and hostess were wonderful and quite considerate. Restaurants down hill, 8th street is a good way to walk back up. Would stay again.

Affordable place for 1 person, short stays only. Good price & location but with some downsides.

  • 3 of 5

The best thing about Sally's place is the price. San Francisco is now an outrageously expensive place to stay, and Sally's place is very affordable. However, you get what you pay for. This is a very small studio underneath the main part of a very old house. It seems to be some kind of converted storage space. There isn't much natural light in there, and no widow that opens to the outside. There is a bed which is fairly comfortable, a small desk and chair facing the wall, a shower and toilet, a mini-fridge and an ancient microwave that only worked on the 'popcorn' setting as far as I could see. Outside the space is a lovely Maple tree, you can have a coffee here but not really any chance for tea, nor to make any kind of cooked breakfast. If you just night a base to sleep in and are not planning on spending any real time in the unit, then this is a great place to stay. The neighbourhood is very peaceful and there are great shops and restaurants up on 9th and Irving, around 6-7 blocks away. Sally was kind enough to get her husband to loan me a crock pot to cook porridge in, but I could not get it to work. Would I stay here again? Probably not, but only because the unit is a bit grim, a bit subterranean with poor air quality. If you don't mind a small spartan space, the price is certainly right, and access was easy.

Owner's Response: The microwave works, I tested it after your departure, and there's no problem at all. I am sorry you did not know how to operate it, as well as the heater. There's no cooking allowed in the unit. To your next rental, I suggest you bring your own equipment, so there's not much dissatisfaction.

Clean, charming, quiet and convenient location!

  • 5 of 5

Sally's small Maple room was perfect for my needs. It was in a charming historical home, was clean and had everything I needed. And it was only two blocks from my daughter's apartment so I could easily walk over. And I liked the gated patio area leading up to the front door. I highly recommend Sally's Maple room and hope to stay there again.

This is a fantastic place for one person to stay!

I felt safe and cozy staying in this property. The studio is exactly as represented in the photos. It's beautifully decorated, immaculately clean, and very comfortable. There is plenty of storage, great water pressure in the shower, and plenty of hot water. The wifi works perfectly. The kitchen is well equipped, I especially enjoyed making coffee every morning. I used Uber to get around the city, although there is a bus stop right outside. This place is a bargain, I'll definitely stay here again. I highly recommend it!!!

Nice and quaint

  • 5 of 5

I was overly impressed with the property. I was travelling alone & this was my 1st time in San Francisco so I didn't know what to expect, but once I got there I was happy with the accommodations. One recommendation would be to supply more linen for guest staying more than 2 nights. Also at night it was difficult to see the numbers on the combination for the gate & front door, however with a little help from my cell phone I managed through this. I had a rental car & parking was ok. Only 1 time did I have to park halfway up the block but on the other days I was able to park either in front of the house or 1 to 2 houses away. The neighborhood was very good & safe & a few of the neighbors I spoke to were very friendly & helpful by offering suggestions on where to go & how to get there. Overall I thought this place was awesome & the price was very reasonable. I would highly recommend staying at this house & I would definitely stay here again. Thank you for the opportunity to stay at your house.
