Great villa and pool .
About the Owner
My husband and I discovered Turkey on our first holiday together, fell in love with the country instantly and have been coming back for the last 20 years! It had long been a dream to own property abroad and we purchased Villa Shamrock at the end of 2012
Since then we have spent many lovely holidays there. The villa has also been a popular rental property with quite a few repeat customers!
We are steadily upgrading the property including air conditioning in the 3rd bedroom and bougenvilla to create shade over the verandah. The new pump house has made the pool even better than ever.
We regard Villa Shamrock as our second home and hope you will do the same.

Great villa and pool .
Our second visit to Dalyan and this villa was perfect for us , plenty of room for 4 of us . Pool was well looked after and great for cooling off , sunshine all day but nice shady spots too . Easy walk into town , lots of restaurants to chose from , close to supermarkets too . Loved this villa and have booked to go again this year , and the prices are great too . Transfers were on time and good price too, all in all a villa to be recommended.
Fantastic value for money
We loved this villa. It's exactly 7 mins walk to town, 4 mins to nearest supermarket and is amazing value for a villa with its own pool. You won't find a better deal anywhere in Dalyan. The villa has everything you will need (except wifi which is available at extra cost and is expensive) and the bikes are a great extra for exploring Dalyan or just getting to the supermarkets. The agents are excellent and the transfers were problem free. I can thoroughly recommend it.
From the Owner
“We have visited many areas of Turkey but kept coming back to Dalyan so it was a natural choice to buy a house in this area. Things we love about the area – stunning scenery, the beach (whether you get there by boat or dolmus), wide variety of bars and restaurants within easy walking distance and last, but certainly not least, the people. We have always found them to be exceptionally friendly (especially with my basic attempts to learn Turkish) and willing to help you with anything. Once you have visited Dalyan you will always come back.”
Activity and Interests
Special interest holidays:
There is an amazing range of habitats in the local area; from the reed beds north of the town to the Koycegiz Lake. With many species of birds, from White Tailed Eagles to Red-rumped swallows, expert birders and amateurs would struggle not to have a great birding holiday. We can organise guided walking tours through areas. We manage perfect accommodation for large groups throughout the year, that are great for comfortable relaxation when not out in the wilderness.
Walking groups taking international excursions are aware of the amazing possibilities available to walkers and ramblers in and around Dalyan. There are a number of great walks to be done in the local area; from the walk up to Candir and Kaunos over stunning mountains and rock tombs, to the Liquid Amber Forests of Dalyan. The Famous Lycian Way walk of 300+km across the southern coast of Turkey, is a trekking holiday for the hardcore (especially in the summer).
Dalyan is best known for its lush greenery, the winding river, ancient Lycian rock tombs and a beautiful sandy beach, which is not just a natural wonder but also won The Times Best Open Space Award in 2010. It is one of the few natural breeding grounds of the beautiful Carreta Carreta sea turtle which can be seen. Over 6km of golden sands with access by bus, car and boat, there are cafeterias at either end for refreshments but plenty of empty space amongst the dunes to escape to.
The nearest airport is Dalaman which is a 25 minute drive away. Once in Dalyan, car hire is not essential as we are so close to everything you could need. The town itself is quite small and everything is within easy walking distance.
Everything is within walking or cycling distance in Dalyan. These apartments are within an easy walk to restaurants, bars, cafes and the riverboats that take you to the beach or the ruins of Kaunos with its amphitheatre and ancient Lycian rock tombs, the mud baths, sea fishing and so on. Fethiye and Olu Deniz are a 50 minute drive away. Marmaris is about a 75 minute drive, both of which have ferries to Rhodes.
There are many activities available such as trekking through the mountains, cycling and jeep safaris, sunrise or moon light boat cruises for fishing or turtle watching, tours to various islands or just along the coast. Sailing, sea kayaking & white water rafting, diving & snorkelling in clear waters through caves and an abundance of marine life. Horse riding is also available.
Dalyan itself is compact, stretching only a mile in either direction from the centre and is framed by pine clad mountains in either direction. The flatness of the town itself is perfect for walking with children or the elderly and is ideal for cycling. Dalyan is noted for it's absence of package tourists although there are plenty of bars and restaurants to cater for all tastes. There is a market in the town centre on Saturday's selling fresh fruit and veg, clothing and souvenirs.
The town also has a bank, several ATM's, chemists, post office, numerous barbers, well stocked supermarkets and a Dolmus (bus) service.
The riverside and harbour is a mere 50m away from the apartment, where you can book a boat trip to the beach, the lake or you just wander up and down. A rowing boat will take you to the other side of the river where you can explore Kaunos and it's history. If you fancy wallowing in mud, hot springs and a mud bath are available on the nearby Koycegiz lake.
Dalyan offers so much for so many.
How about spending a day on a comfortable boat, viewing an amazing coastline, swimming in crystal clear waters and tasting traditional home-made Turkish ?

From the Owner
“We wanted a reasonable sized property to accommodate all the family (two grown up daughters). The fact that the villa has its own swimming pool was a definite bonus. It is within 10 minutes walking distance of the centre of town but at the same time situated in a residential street. Sitting on the verandah in the morning watching Dalyan come to life is a great pleasure and early morning cycles through the town make you realise just what a beautiful place it is. Enjoy!”
