Dining out on the Oregon Coast looks a little different this year. Some of our favorite restaurants have sadly closed down for good, others remain open for take-out and curbside pick up only and many are struggling to open with a severe labor shortage on the coast. Staying in a vacation rental gives you the freedom of choice to eat out or enjoy the luxury of sunrise coffees, gourmet meals, family gatherings, alfresco patio dining and smores around the outdoor fire pit, all from the comfort of home.
We’re all spending a little more time at home and enjoying quality moments with family and friends. There’s no need for this to change on vacation!
One of the biggest perks of renting a Starfish Luxury Rental … our exceptionally well-stocked, fully-fitted kitchens, outdoor dining patios and BBQ grills!
If you’re flying to your vacation destination, Starfish Vacation Rentals’ signature grocery delivery service is perfect. If you’re driving, you may want to consider packing your favorite items from home, making sure you have the family essentials that may not be available in the local stores and markets, then pick up the rest of your supplies closer to your destination.
Or, perhaps this is the first vacation you’ve taken since Covid shut us down and grocery shopping is the last thing on your mind for your post-covid vacation. Well, no worries there either! Don’t waste precious vacation time dragging the family around unfamiliar grocery stores. Just send us your list ahead of time, sit back and relax. Our team will have your groceries delivered and unpacked, with a pantry and fridge fully-stocked with your essentials and favorites prior to arrival.
There are plenty of options to consider when planning your groceries for your Oregon Coast vacation and a little thought and pre-planning goes a long way. Whether you’re travelling from the north or south, love to explore new grocery stores , or prefer to leave it all up to us – we’ve taken the hassle out of grocery shopping with the scoop on the best places for grocery shopping on the Oregon Coast.
If you’re travelling south from Washington and would prefer a bulk shop rather than shopping at the local Oregon Coast markets, make a stop in Warrenton to stock up. You’ll find a Fred Meyer on the right just across the New Youngs Bay Bridge (you can even order ahead for curbside pickup) and a Costco and Walmart Supercenter a little further south on the left side of US-101.
The charm of Cannon Beach is that in place of the familiar touristy franchise stores, you’ll find locally owned stores and markets with friendly faces.
