Get to Know HI Pigeon Point Lighthouse

Whether you’re looking for a peaceful coastal escape or an educational seaside adventure, HI Pigeon Point Lighthouse is the place to find it. At the foot of a 116-foot-tall lighthouse, the property offers vacation-rental-style accommodations spread out over several buildings for groups of family and friends. At this time, we are only offering vacation rentals instead of dorm or private rooms, for guests’ maximum privacy and safety.

Just 50 miles south of San Francisco along California’s gorgeous Hwy. 1, our scenic grounds feature beautiful native plants and panoramic ocean views. Traveling with the kids? We’ve got on-site tide pools, harbor seals, and a secluded beach perfect for the young and the young at heart. We’re surrounded by miles of hiking and coastal trails, and as a dark sky preserve, we’re also the perfect place to stargaze.

Starting May 26th, 2023, individuals (up to 9 people) can book shared dormitory rooms, private rooms for 1-3 people, and family rooms for 4-6 people.

Until May 25, 2023, we are operating three vacation rental units on site. Each rental house can accommodate as many as 15 people, with no minimum group size. We welcome solo travelers, couples or groups who would like to book a vacation rental unit. For full-house rentals after May 25, 2023, please contact our Group Sales team.

Each rental house includes:

  • Two bedrooms with three sets of twin-sized bunk beds each
  • One bedroom with one twin-sized bed bunk bed over one full-sized bed (note: one of the rental units just has a double bed in this bedroom)
  • Two full bathrooms
  • Fully-equipped kitchen
  • Dining area and living room

To book an individual vacation rental unit (for parties up to 10 people), please use our online booking engine here or email the hostel directly. Please indicate the number of people in your party when booking.

  1. Additional people can be added to individual unit reservations to accommodate up to 15 people total at no extra charge.
  2. Reserve two or three vacation rental houses, perfect for larger groups or families traveling together.
