About Celeste Salt

I was born in Johannesburg, South Africa and lived there until I was 9 years old. In 1979 our family moved to Vancouver, Canada. I lived there until I was 22 and then went to Chiropractic College in San Jose, California. My husband and I moved to San Diego in 1995 and have lived here ever since.

Celeste Salt purchased this bungalow in 2011

Why Celeste Salt chose Chula Vista

My husband and I fell in love with this property. It is on a quiet cul-de-sac in an upscale neighborhood. We have a 1/2 acre property with beautiful gardens and a large solar heated pool. We enjoy swimming May-November.

What makes this bungalow unique

This little slice of paradise is a relaxing place to hang out. Whether you are enjoying the pool or laying in the hammock you are sure to love listening to the birds and enjoy the joys that San Diego has to offer!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a great 12 day stay at the casita. Mark and Celeste are wonderful hosts. The casita is very clean and well-stocked. (Be sure to check all cabinets and refrig for supplies before going grocery shopping - lots of things you need may already be there!) Having private laundry facilities was greatly appreciated. Their yard is beautifully landscaped. The door to the casita faces away from the main house, so it is very private. We sat outside for meals and felt like we were at a resort. The neighborhood is quiet and safe. Groceries, restaurants, and other services are very close. We travelled to Chula Vista to visit family. During the times I did errands for my mother, my husband was happy to sit by the pool and read or walk through the neighborhood. Having a kitchen and a home-like location was so much better than staying at motel. We would not hesitate to return!

Perfect location, home from home.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a wonderful stay, the casita was great for us. Everything we needed was there, the pool was lovely and the location perfect to explore all that San Diego has to offer. Our hosts were just lovely, on hand to advise and help, especially when we had issues with the hire car... thank you so much.

We would highly recommend this 'home from home' and look forward to staying again in the future... thank you again for opening your home to us.

Home away from home with superb location!

  • 5 of 5

The casita was lovely and included all the comforts of your own home. It was roomier than expected! The pool and grounds were beautiful. Privacy was not an issue and we felt very comfortable. The Chula Vista location and close proximity to highways made it easy to get to all of the sites. It was only twenty minutes to Coronado beach and everything we needed for the beach was available in the casita! Celeste was very pleasant and easy to work with. I would highly recommend this property!

Our stay at the Casita was everything and more than we could have ever asked for. Celeste and her family were kind and welcoming. We will definitely be staying here again on our next visit to California. Highly recommended if you are looking for a nice quiet place to relax and get away. Thanks for everything!!!

Beautiful property and neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this casita. The pictures really do not do justice to the size and beauty of the property. The casita is on the same property as the owner's home and so they are right there if you need anything. Celeste and Mark were so kind and helpful. The casita is clean and well stocked with kitchen utensils as well as extras for the beach; like chairs, beach towels, boogie board, etc. We loved staying here.
