The lounge consists of 2 large sofas and 2 armchairs. Coffee table and nest of tables alongside a large flat screen TV with DVD player and surround sound system. We have satellite TV featuring some English channels as well as local selection. You can expect English speaking news and documentaries. We also have a selection of DVD's for your entertainment.

The kitchen. Should you wish to cater for yourself you will find all you need to cook, prepare and dine.

The room is fully air conditioned with dual large ceiling fans. The opposite end of the lounge features a large dining table seating 8, in close proximity is a water machine. This provides both hot and cold water. Whilst the tap water is ok to drink it is not recommended for Europeans, and bottled water is a much better option.

Going outside on the ample terrace provides the opportunity for alfresco dining, with seating for 10. The terrace overlooks the 45m sq pool, which has an oval children's splash pool alongside. A classic Turkish garden “Kosk” awaits your use for relaxing out of the sun. There are 8 poolside sunloungers for you, with sunshades and tables. If you want to freshen up before or after your dip, there is a poolside shower. A purpose built garden BBQ area is available for your use. As well as the grill, there is a food preparation area together with BBQ utensils, these are found in the kitchen. The gardens and pool are maintained throughout your stay to ensure your pleasure and comfort. Both areas get lots of sun. We provide large beach towels for outside use, these are in addition to the house linen.

The Villa is the ideal base for exploring the wonderful surroundings of Dalyan, or being lazy and relaxing at the Villa. The choice is yours! This family friendly area has an abundance of wildlife and places to see. Typically a more relaxed pace than a resort town, still offers a fantastic night out. With a huge selection of restaurants and bars for you to choose from. Our particular favourites are at the top and bottom of the road, and that's not just because we enjoy being lazy!!

About the Owner

We are a motorcycle mad married couple who both ride and have done for ages. We both have a soft spot for tech and a bit of comfort. We have enjoyed rallies, trips and camping as we really take pleasure in the outdoors – English weather permitting that is! We have a Cat (who regards us as staff) and live and work in London. We are very social and have started to slow down and take more time for ourselves and to relax. We are “redefining priorities” and are stepping off the wheel to spend more time together in the sun, taking it easy. Anyone who has sat in a traffic jam at 06:30 will know what we are on about!

For us, Lazy Duck Villa is the perfect way to unwind in beautiful Dalyan. Please come and see for yourself.....

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

The Lazy Duck is well named because we had a very lazy, relaxing holiday in an absolutely fabulous villa and pool. The villa had literally everything you might need. The Sinkov was a real bonus as were the toiletries.

We have holidayed in many villas and I can honestly say this was the cleanest best equipped villa of them all.

All rooms are setup ideal for a big family or for a couple.

Close to restaurants with friendly locals.

Probably one of the best villas I have stayed at.

Perfect ;-)

A quacking place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Having just returned from a week's stay at the LD, I felt compelled to write a review. Having never written a review before, I think that in itself speaks volumes to me.

The stay was an absolute dream. We wanted for nothing during our stay. Two families with four children ranging from 11 to 15. Not once did they complain. The pool was really well maintained, the gardens manicured, the villa very spacious and the air-conditioned rooms very well appointed. The last review referenced the provision of sun creams and insect sprays. This contributed to the exacting level of service offered by the Lazy Duck.


You won't need a car as everything you need is a 5 min walk away, including the public boats in the port to take you to one of the top three beaches in Turkey

LD provides all towels you will need for your stay

Avoid the touristy restaurants in favour of the more traditional Turkish establishments behind the those on the front.

Enjoy yourself!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to submit a review – your first – and they are very kind comments. We are so very pleased that you all enjoyed yourselves at Lazy Duck Villa. It’s good to know we are doing something right. We did a lot of research before buying and put a lot of effort into ensuring the comfort of our guests. We are glad you notice the difference. You have obviously enjoyed exploring Dalyan and thanks for the tips to others reading your review. (Our favourite restaurant is also more “traditional” and it’s just at the top of the road – very handy indeed. Everyone has their own !!) We hope you will consider us again – you would be just as welcome. S & K - Lazy Duck Villa

From the Owner

We love Turkey and have been coming here for over 15 years now. We were looking for a more peaceful and laid back location, away from the bustle and crowds of the main resorts. We wanted a relaxed feel and friendly atmosphere, a gentler easier pace. Dalyan is an area of outstanding natural beauty, with its turtle beach, meandering river and ancient history. The ruins at Kaunos are like time travel, watching the turtles is truly wonderful. We love the hot springs in the lake, sunset boat trips, coffee by the river or a piping hot meal fresh from the log fired oven. A short stroll into town and your next adventure awaits. Jeep safari ? Alternatively just have a cold drink by the pool, a good book and a snooze. We simply adore this place. It was an easy decision having been here.

Activity and Interests

Car: not necessary

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, Turkey. 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 Fosrets of Dalyan. The Famous Lykian 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 Carretta Carretta 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. Villa Lazy Duck is within an easy walk to restaurants, bars and cafés and the riverboats that you take 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.

Further Details:

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.

The garden has a large terrace for sunbathing, a BBQ and dining area patio and a traditional “kosk” to watch the world go by and enjoy a traditional coffee. Inside has three large double bedrooms and a 4 single bed loft room which tends to be “kid central”.The Lounge and kitchen are extensively equipped with all the features you would expect at home. We want you to relax and put your feet up – as we do. Enjoy being lazy at our Villa,You will be very welcome.
