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

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.

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.

GRACE AT THE SEA - BODEGA BAY, CALIFORNIA

  • 5 of 5
Check in was effortless but pay attention to the directions. After you find it the first time it's easy. Everything was as described in the listing. Property is clean, well kept and well stocked. Nice views of the sunset from the balcony off the Master. Murphy bed on main level worked perfectly for our guests. Kitchen is fully stocked... spent 9 nights and only had dinner out once. We found the nearest supermarket was in Sebastopol... about 15 miles. Couple of small markets in Bodega Bay without much variety - just the basics... wine, beer & sandwich/snack stuff. WIFI and Phone land line are a real benefit. Cel service (we have ATT) spotty... locals told us Verizon is better. Played golf at The Links at Bodega Harbor, Sea Ranch Golf Links and Northwood (up the Russian River in a forest of Redwoods). All enjoyable and reasonably priced for the quality of the courses. Would stay again if we decided to vacation in the area.

EXACTLY AS ADVERTISED!

  • 5 of 5
My 3 year old daughter and I stayed here for 3 days/2 nights and everything that is shown on this listing is exactly what you get. Beautifully cared for home, spacious for us two (but roomy enough for 4 or 5), clean, comfortable, close to beach and the owner is very accommodating and treated us like friends. It was a trip for my daughter's birthday so Pam had left some pink cupcakes for her, which were delicious, and a coloring book/crayons! Very thoughtful touch! We enjoyed this home very much and would highly recommend for a small family or a girl's weekend, maybe even a couple's getaway! The price can't be beat!

The beach is definitely within walking distance, however, we did load up the car and drove the minute or two just due to having a load to carry, ie: bags, blankets, sand toys (of which Pam had available for my daughter to use) and other items. There is parking right at the dunes so it was easier for me with a toddler. The beach is gorgeous and pretty much secluded, there was only like 2-3 other groups of people each time we went.

The neighborhood was fantastic, seems like a lot of owners/locals so they were quiet and very friendly. We drove to town once just to get some salt water taffy and look around but with the full kitchen we made all of our meals at "home".

Overall we had a wonderful time!

CHARMING COTTAGE AND CAN'T BEAT THE LOCATION

Charming Cottage and Can't Beat the Location
  • 5 of 5
Grace by the Sea is a lovely home filled with all the amenities you need for a relaxing stay at the beach. The balcony boasts gorgeous views of the ocean and Salmon Creek Beach to the west and the pretty hillside to the east. You can tell that Pam takes great pride in her home and the beautiful gardens that surround it. If you are looking for an affordable rental within walking distance to the sand and surf, look no further! You won't be disappointed.

Also, we had great fish and chips at The Boathouse and a great dinner at Las Bodeguitas (Mexican) if you're looking for a good meal just a short drive away.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to submit a review. I know how busy Mom's are with 2 small children. Your daughter's THANK YOU in my visitor journal was precious. I am happy to share my special place so that everyone has the chance to experience the treasure we call Salmon Creek.

PERFECT SIZE, BEAUTIFUL LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We rented Grace at the Sea for our honeymoon and wedding. The upstairs room has a beautiful peaceful view. There is also a view of the hills where the sun rises every morning. It was the perfect size for us, and so peaceful and bright. Thank you so much Pam for making our honeymoon so special. We can't wait to come back! -- Mr. & Mrs. Q

A PERFECT GET AWAY RETREAT !!!

  • 5 of 5
WOW !!! The moment we arrived at Pam's amazing and cozy cottage, "Grace at the Sea", I had that wonderful feeling of everything will be alright. All the stress just disappeared. Pam thought of everything we needed plus more. She made delicious cookies for us and they just hit the spot when we went into the spotless kitchen. The lovely bedroom/balcony upstairs is perfect to watch the ocean waves crashing and the beautiful sunsets in the evenings. It's so peaceful and quiet there. A very relaxing and comfortable environment inside and out. The place is very clean and it's truly a very special place to stay and to get away from it all. Bring the kids too--there are nice beach/sand toys for them so no need to bring your own. The flowers and plants in the garden are nice to enjoy also. Having two clean bathrooms in the cottage is a bonus. We were fortunate that the weather was nice when we were there. Walking to Salmon Creek Beach was fun. Even our 3-1/2 year-old granddaughter said that she would love to go back. Thank you, Pam...for sharing your beautiful home...you are GREAT !!!

FOUND OUR 2ND HOME IN BODEGA BAY!!!

  • 5 of 5
PAM IS AWESOME!! This was our 4th year to Bodega Bay - normally my husband and I have an extended weekend but this was the first year we decided to stay a week and our first time staying here. We thought a week might be too long but once you get into this house you realize a week is not nearly long enough!! Every single thing you could possibly need and want is here!! It is SOOO cozy and comfortable and you could tell Pam loves this place and puts 110% of herself into it. She is amazing. We've stayed at a couple of VRBO places but never met anyone like Pam. She strives to make you happy and it makes you love and respect the house as much as her. (I never thought of throwing my vegetable remains in the green bin =) She was helpful in the beginning leading to our trip and helpful during our stay. My parents came for a couple of days and slept on the murphy bed. They loved it and were pretty much ready to move in also - they were hooked as much as us! You can hear the ocean at night while toasting marshmallows w/the fire pit and then go inside and take the greatest bubble bath in that fabulous bathtub!! Being greeted w/the homemade Meyer Lemon Squares (my favorite) wasn't half bad either!! (Thanks Pam!) If you can ever pry yourself away from this house (we'd leave around 2 everyday) then you gotta make sure to eat at Spud Point Marina, Lucas Warf and The Birds Café (the owner is so sweet) then Captain Davey's for a coffee...then take a long drive up the coast...mmmmm so romantic...talk about a vacation!!! Never a dull moment and I nearly cried when it was time to pack up and leave but a smile came back when I started counting down the weeks till we return to this wonderful house again next year!! Thanks Pam - you definitely found a VERY happy couple who thinks of your home as our second home!!

Owner's Response: Wow! Thank you so much for sharing your experiences at my cottage. My goal is to make a memorable experience for all who visit. It is always nice to put faces with names, and extra special when you get to meet your guests and have a connection with them. Hopefully next time you will have time to take the Coleman Valley Road drive. Yes, those sunsets are magic. They really put life into perspective, don't take a minute for granted for it will soon be gone. Enjoying the simple things in life makes it worth living.
