The pool is so lush, with trees covering providing some shade. The downstairs rooms are literally 5 steps from the pool. Dean and Lori are gracious hosts and attentive to any questions we have. They have a cute little dog who loves to play ball in the pool, so I think the place must be dog friendly, although I don't remember seeing other dogs. The rooms are all decorated differently, eclectic. We've stayed there several times and have never had a plumbing problem or any sort of issue with any of the rooms. You can wash clothes at the convenient free downstairs washer/dryer. There is free wireless. The largest two bedroom unit has a great kitchen, again just steps away from the pool. We've spent many an evening eating at the poolside table. Ataraxia is close to the Hollywood Broadwalk, you can sit on a bench and watch the sunrise with the local colorful retired crowd. It is a 1/2 mile or so to walk down to the bar/shops area of the Broadwalk. The Hollywood Bandshell is probably a mile walk, they have free concerts sometimes on the weekend. I highly recommend this gem of a place, in a gem of beach town.
