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.

Great cozy studio!!

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay at this cozy studio! Even though it looks small in the pictures it has a very specious feel when you're there. The kitchenette was perfect for making quick easy meals in the morning before heading out and when I returned from a day of adventuring. Finding parking was easy which can sometimes be a hard thing to do in SF. WIFI connection in the unit was easy to access. It was quiet and I felt safe while I was staying there. It really was a great place to stay and I would highly recommend this cozy beautiful studio to anyone traveling alone.

Perfect for a solo traveler!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for 12 days while I was in town for work and this place was perfect for me. Its a humble space, but its functional and true the pictures. The area was safe and I never had any trouble finding parking, plus you cant beat the price. I met the hosts on the last day and they were super nice. Sally was accommodating and responsive throughout the whole process, I needed an itemized receipt and she sent it to me right away . I would definitely stay here again!

Clean and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

I drove to The City on this trip and appreciated that parking was not restricted on this block - a huge advantage - and that the #6 bus stopped just across the street. This tiny unit uses its space to good advantage; I particularly appreciated the kitchen amenities. It is quiet. San Francisco was going through a cold snap when I was there but the unit was warm enough. The bed was comfortable. My only quibble is that the only window opens onto a small interior space - if like me you feel most comfortable with an open window nearby even in cold weather, that's a drawback. The owners leave a list of nearby markets and laundries, as well as small bookcase of reading material. Hope someone has enjoyed the copy of a Tina Fey book I added!

Great price, clean, great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for six days in late February while visiting my daughter. The location is amazing and right across the street is the bus stop. I rode the #6 bus every morning on my way to downtown San Francisco to spend the day with my daugter. The bus ride itself is fun because it takes you on colorful Haight Street and the houses are fun to see.

Almost every morning I'd walk the few blocks down to Irving Street. You could spend your entire day there if you wanted, everything you need is there. I wish I could remember the name of the coffee shop that had these awsome pastries. If you just follow the morning crowd, you'll find the place I'm sure. By the way, if you're not used to walking up San Francisco hills, you can always take the #6 bus back up 9th Street. I had too many pastries so I always walked. =)

Sally was friendly and accomodating. The space was ready for me when I arrived and was clean and well stocked. The bed is firm but comfortable. I'm from the Seattle area so San Francisco seemed warm to me for winter, but there were plenty of extra blankets in the armoir if you're chilly.

I would recommend this rental to anyone who is traveling alone and wants to feel safe in the big city. This is the kind of place you can feel comfortable sending someone you love to and not have to worry about them.

I stayed for six nights. It felt like a short weekend though because there's so much to do and see in San Francisco. Bear in mind, some of those hills aren't for the timid, bring your sturdy walking shoes and extra socks. You'll rarely see an overweight person in the city--once you start walking around, you'll know why.

You won't need a car during your visit unless there's a reason you can't walk. The public transportation in San Francisco is amazing. The parking stinks so you may as well save yourself the price of the car rental. Plus you'll feel healthier from all the walking.

The place looked just like the photos, although the garden area is much nicer in person.

The only drawback I can come up is the cell phone reception inside the space wasn't great. I had to stand by the door to get reception. It could be my phone, or my phone provider, (Verizon), however It wasn't much of an inconvenience at all.

I would have no qualms recommending this rental to anyone visiting the area. Sally is friendly but unobtrusive.

Next time I'm in the city, I know where I'm staying.
