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.

This little gem was the perfect getaway for our family of four

  • 5 of 5

We booked it because of the flawless reviews and great price (a rare combo) and it exceeded our expectations. It’s clear that Pam takes a lot of pride in her cottage and maintains it very well kept. It has all the essentials so you can truly feel on vacation while still having the comforts of home. We stayed for five nights and because of the cottage’s perfect location, we easily accessed and explored a different part of the north coast each day. We have a newfound appreciation for the breathtaking ocean views, kid friendly beaches and plush rolling hills. The food scene is quite remarkable too with fresh ingredients featured at local spots. We let Yelp and Pam's recommendations guide the way and enjoyed every bite. Our kids are still raving about the trip and we hope to return some day. Thank you Pam for the world class hospitality!

Views a plenty

  • 5 of 5

Grace by the sea is roomy, cozy , a view of the ocean and close to everything. Our favorite discovery was to sit in the backyard in the afternoon and fall asleep in the chais.

The only thing missing was a CD player 🤔

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Sorry you did not get to hear your favorite tunes. If a guest requests a CD player I do have a Bose that I can bring to the cottage. Otherwise I listen to the music channels provided on cable television. There is quite a selection. Glad you enjoyed the yard. I work very hard at keeping it up. Hope to see you again in the future.

Wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

This rental was more than I even imagined, and even better than the photos portray. Extremely well-stocked kitchen, cozy, clean, with an ocean view from the bedroom balcony that we enjoyed in the mornings and evenings. The beach is just a short walk away, and we spent hours there flying our kite, playing in the ocean, and building a structure using the driftwood that was strewn about. Had a wonderful time, and will definitely come back!

Owner's Response: Great! I really appreciate your comments on your recent visit. Salmon Creek beach is the best. Hope you are able to set aside some time to escape from the Summer heat.

Super clean, super cute, very quiet neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Pam’s place. We were welcomed with fresh cupcakes and “Happy Birthday “ in chalk on the side walk, we were here for my wife’s birthday weekend. The beach is just a short walk through the neighborhood and the view from the master bedroom is a great place to enjoy morning coffee or an evening glass of wine. Thank you Pam for sharing your beautiful home with us! We will be back soon!

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.
