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.

Relaxing and Rejuvinating

  • 5 of 5

Grace At The Sea was the perfect get away for us. It is a well appointed cottage in a quaint little village by Salmon Creek and the Ocean. Peaceful and relaxing. The lemon bars were an unexpected welcoming treat! Thank you for sharing your beautiful cottage. We plan a return visit!

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this cozy cottage! Watching the sun set over the ocean from the porch each evening was a treat, and Pam gave us lots of wonderful suggestions for exploring the coast. Can't wait to come back!

Wonderful home in a great town

  • 5 of 5

Pam really goes out of her way to make you feel welcomed at her wonderful cottage. Both bathrooms are modern, and the kitchen is well equipped. We enjoyed letting our children run around in the cute backyard while drinking a glass of wine. A short walk from an epic beach, and a short drive from town, we'd love to come back sometime soon.

Owner's Response: I would love to have you. Happy to hear your children enjoyed the backyard. It is just the right size for them to have fun, and parents too. Thank you again for taking such good care of my cottage during your stay. I know it can sometimes be a challenge with little ones. Hope you have an awesome 2018.

Quality home

  • 4 of 5

The kitchen is top-notch! The view from the bedroom is a clear shot to the ocean. Everything is clean and in good working order. Furniture is beautiful. The home is very well cared for. The walk to the beach is lovely from the home.

Owner's Response: Thank you, thank you for your positive input on staying in my cottage. It is always great to have such a glowing review. I take pride in offering one of the best vacation rentals in Salmon Creek. There may be others that offer more space, but you will not find a more welcoming cottage. Hope you will return again soon.

Wonderful get away!!!

  • 5 of 5

We've been to Grace by the Sea many times and are always renewed by the end of our stay. Each time we leave we say 'Next time let's stay longer'.

It is so quiet, very clean and has everything we need. Many thanks to the owner, Pam.

Accommodating, professional, and all around great. I couldn't recommend highly enough.

  • 5 of 5

Very quiet neighborhood. Very short distance to several beaches. We had no issues . I would recommend in a heartbeat. This also being the 1st time to this part of the coast, will definitely be back. Thanks PAM for the great stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much. The champagne was over the top. Reading your review was a wonderful way to start my Christmas morning. You picked a great area for your California "dreaming". The Sonoma Coastline is a great place to escape from the everyday routine and explore nature's beauty. Hope you can return and extend your stay a little. You are always welcome.

If you choose adventure, Bodega Bay Surf Shack rents, bikes, kayaks,surfboards and windsurfers. Cruise on a bike along the beach or out to Bodega Head. 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.
