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 North Coast California

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 is all the best Sonoma Coast has to offer.

Met our expectations perfectly

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay at this cottage and recommend it highly. The owner was especially helpful in contributing to our positive experience. The only negative we had was dealing with VRBO's website!

Why stay at BBL when you can stay at Grace by the Sea?

(my second stay at Grace, and I have stayed at the BBL a few times)

Clean (immaculate!!!)

Cozy (great living room and sunny kitchen)

Comfortable (excellent bed and bathrooms)

ALL the amenities of a 5 star lodge! well minus the restaurant and pool...

Walk to the beach, stroll on the sand for miles.

Perfect romantic getaway for two.

Excellent accommodations for small family or two friends.

Bring everything you need including firewood, you may not get back in your car until it is time to leave!

Don't miss out on Grace by the Sea!!!

Comfortable Cottage With Everthing You Need. Just Add Love...!

  • 5 of 5

The property is well-located and well-equipped. The house is very comfortable and Pam has seen to it that whatever you will need is there. We even lost power overnight in a storm and it was fine... We had the best 3 days we've had in a very long time at Grace By The Sea...!!! :-)

Owner's Response: Thank yo so much for your wonderful review. Wintertime visits can be pretty exciting. The ocean in all her glory, reminds us of the respect she has earned. When Salmon Creek opens up to the ocean, it is quite spectacular. The view from Grace at the Sea captures a first hand look of the ocean storms. I am glad you enjoyed your stay. Hope you will return in the summer, to beat the heat at home.

Lovely beach escape

  • 5 of 5

The cottage offered everything one needs to enjoy a peaceful time in nature close to beach access. I found the kitchen well equipped, the linens comfortable and the beach themed ambiance all in alignment for a restful and renewing escape from urban life. I think the cottage is ideal space for one or two persons. I would recommend this option and commend the personal attention to detail and hospitality offered by Pam, the owner. Thank you, Pam!

Wonderful Thanksgiving at Grace at the Sea

  • 5 of 5


We had an amazing time at the cottage this past week. As 'new empty nesters', my husband and I were looking for somewhere special to celebrate our first Thanksgiving alone in 25 years and your home was just the ticket. We fell in love with the home, the Salmon Creek neighborhood, and the surrounding area. The cottage was charming, immaculate, and very welcoming - the rooms were perfect and comfortable. I fixed Thanksgiving dinner and several other meals in the kitchen and everything I needed was there. Your attention to detail in the furnishings and supplies made the stay that much more enjoyable. We especially enjoyed many hours up on the balcony watching and listening to the ocean waves. And of course the Pumpkin Cake was to die for - thanks!

Thanks again Pam for sharing your lovely home - We will definitely be back!
