About Pam Hill

Purchased cabin in need of love and attention in 2001 to follow my dream of one day living at the beach. Completed remodel in 2005 while living full time until recently. I am now willing to share my labor of love so that I may spend more time with my two beautiful grandchildren and daughter. I have been so blessed in my life, and 'Grace at the Sea' is a reflection of all the love in my heart.

Pam Hill purchased this cottage in 2001

Why Pam Hill chose Bodega Bay

Prior to buying this cottage, I would walk my dog at Salmon Creek (when dogs were still allowed) every weekend to unwind from the stress of Corporate America. I retired, started project and never looked back.

What makes this cottage unique

You will feel at home the moment you walk in the front door. The beach, the dunes, the creek............it is all the best Sonoma Coast has to offer.

Well cared for home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and i enjoyed three lovely days at Grace by the Sea. The home is well cared for, clean, and prepared well for guests. Pam is very responsive and helpful. We have stayed in many of the vrbo homes in the area, as well as in So Cal. This was one of our favorites. The home is well maintained. Its a Great area. We enjoyed the easy access to the sonoma coast trail and view of Salmon Creek and the Pacific ocean. Listened to waves all night and enjoyed early mornings on the deck.

Everything is arranged easily for guests to use. Easy check out. Thank you Pam!

Grace by the Sea

  • 5 of 5

The name of the cottage says it all. We really felt graced by the sea after our stay. The beach house has everything we needed because we had brought some food supplies from home. We went fishing and even caught some perch (catch and release). We walked along the beach at Salmon Creek, and went to town to eat our fill of seafood. Pam is always a phone call away. What a great place to stay in Bodega Bay. We will come back again as soon as we can.

Owner's Response: Sounds like a fun trip. Our area is one of the most peaceful areas in Bodega Bay. We offer some of the freshest seafood around Sonoma County. Glad to hear you satisfied your seafood cravings. Salmon Creek Beach offers enjoyment to all who visit. Hope to share my cottage with you again soon.

Wonderful!

This is such a great place to go for some real r&r! The place is close to the beach and trails, while not too far from restaurants and shops. Pam's, the owner, attention to the little details, made the setting even better - and she is very responsive to requests. We had such a great stay our first time, I'm sure we'll go back!!

So beautiful!

  • 4 of 5

This house was totally wonderful with a cute beachy feel. Super close walk to the beach and a great view of it from the upper balcony as well! The homemade lemon loaf from Pam was superb. We definitely had a great time at this little getaway!

Awesome Bodega Bay Hide-away!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely weekend. The cottage is wonderful with lots of nice touches. The beach is a short walk and we had fantastic weather. It was a working weekend for me, but the next time that my wife and I stay here we will focus only relaxing and walking on the beach. I would highly recommend this vacation cottage for anyone looking to get away from it all for a few days or even a few weeks.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your comments. I hope you had a chance to walk our new walking trail off Keefe. It is a great way to start your day. Salmon Creek is Bodega Bay's best kept secret. It is however becoming a popular destination as the word gets out. Looking forward to you coming when you have some down time.

Surfing lessons with experienced instructors are available. Bodega Bay Pro Dive has a full service dive center. Bodega Bay Kayak Tours offer tours of Salmon Creek, Willow Creek and the Russian River. Sport fishing from Porto Bodega Marina is always popular with many anglers.

If natural wonders is your pleasure, there are great parks and nature reserves. Sonoma County recently constructed a bird walk trail. The trail passes through a revitalized salt water marsh, which is home to thousands of migratory and native birds throughout the year. A bridge connects Doran and Bird Walk Coastal Parks. You can walk along Canadian Geese nesting sites, and over an estuary filled with Leopard Sharks and Bat Rays to reach crashing waves.
