How did Cobb and Saito end up in the same limbo? Why not each their own?

Because they are all connected to the same dream, they experience the same Limbo with elements from both of their subconscious minds.

Limbo is a shared dreamspace. The beach was a feature of Cobb's previous Limbo experiences, from the "memory elevator" Ariadne sees Mal play with the kids on it, and she sees the train rush past on it. For Cobb it seems a site of trauma. Saito adds his Japanese house to the shoreline.
