My husband and I decided to stay at the Tickle Pink Inn for a little getaway after a grueling past 5 months. After our hectic schedules (medical school for him,working overtime for me), this was the perfect place to spend a few days relaxing, unwinding, and just enjoying each other. We got engaged at this hotel 14 months before, and truly appreciated its understated luxury and its private tranquility. The staff was very friendly, helping us to make reservations for dinner and giving us a map of Ocean Avenue, pointing out certain stores where we could find some particular items. Other than when we wanted to ask a question, we saw them only a little. I particularly like this in a hotel, since I prefer to feel like I am in a private residence without staff being underfoot. We stayed in room 23, which I would highly recommend! A suite with a separate living room that had a full, sweeping view of the ocean, breathtaking both during the day at at sunset. And the bathroom is gorgeous, all glass and marble, I am trying to convince my husband to replicate it in our home. The private entrance is an added bonus, because there is never anyone walking by your room! The beds were a dream, with those new sumptuous sheets and duvets that they have. We looked forward to breakfast every morning, sitting outside with our studel and muffins (cranberry walnut....my favorite!) and looking out at the ocean. This is the type of hotel where you can truly embrace doing everything at your leisure. In all, the Tickle Pink trip gave us a much-needed break away from it all to connect and be together in one of the most romanic settings in the country.
