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 Bonita

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!

This was a beautiful property close to everything we wanted to do. Pool was fantastic & very well stocked for our needs. We traveled with 2 teenagers and all had a blast. This is a great property, would definitely stay here again.

We loved our stay here! Gorgeous house, gardens and pool and great hosts.

  • 1 of 5

This is a very well equipped and charming house set in amazing gardens. We loved the pool and only being about 20 minutes from beaches and all the main San Diego attractions. Celeste and Mark are great hosts and provided great advice on best times to visit attractions etc which gave us more time to enjoy their pool! Well worth a stay!!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the casita! Our boys loved the pool and we had a great time playing basketball and ping pong. The house was big enough for our family of four and was stocked with the basics. There is a new Walmart just around the corner to get what you need (Costco is next to that if you prefer). We loved having a washer and dryer and we even did movie night two nights with the wonderful selection of movies that are there. There is easy access to the highway which makes going out super easy. Thank you so much for sharing your guest home with us. We loved it!

Just What We Needed!!

  • 4 of 5

My husband, myself and our three kids (15, 10 & 7) have come to a point where we've outgrown hotel rooms. This guest house was a perfect fit for our needs. We were vacationing for 5 days. We spent most of our time in San Diego but made a conscious decision to try and eat in to save money. The kitchen was great. Our first night we went grocery shopping and filled up on some staples. The kitchen was already stocked with spices, condiments, paper goods and even great coffee!! The layout of the home is nice and we were able to spread out between the two bedrooms and living room. Having a washer and dryer was an added bonus as well. My initial concern when considering this property was whether there was privacy. I read the other reviews and I must agree that Celeste is a very gracious hostess but she and her family do give their guests a large amount of privacy. I didn't know whether they were home half the time. We were able to use the pool, ping pong table and basketball hoop. The only amenity that we were not able to use was the hot tub :( Despite this we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The location of their home is within a beautiful development in the hills of Chula Vista and is very close to shopping centers and as Celeste put it, "dangerously close to Costco" :) I would definitely recommend this rental to anyone looking to have the "comforts of home" while on a vacation! Thank You Celeste and Family!

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.
