Most of the area East of 805 has a lot to offer, like; Chula Vista Golf Course, Olympic Center, Southwestern College, Otay Ranch Town Center Mall, Knott's Soak City, Cricket Amphitheater and all surronded by beatiful communities to choose from.
San Miguel Ranch as well as Eastlake are desireable areas. The HOA's however tend to be pretty high, so check with your client's lender on the max HOA they can afford. You are on the right track with East of 805. I just helped a client who purchased in the Alicante complex of San Miguel Ranch. I don't recall if the 2 bedrooms are under 200K but worth checking out.
