About Karen Clark - Simon Clark

We are a marrıed couple from the East End of London. We have been comıng to Turkey for over 16 years and loved ıt. We now have two propertıes ın Turkey, Lazy Duck Vılla beıng our second Purchase ın 2013 .After years of effort and plannıng we fınally managed to move to Turkey, where we now lıve. We both have a soft spot for tech and a bit of comfort. We have a Cat (who regards us as staff) who came wıth us and two Dogs that we got ın Turkey. They are two brothers called Ronnıe and Reggıe - who hopefully won't be as much trouble as their namesakes ! We are very social and have started to slow down and take more time for ourselves and to relax.. We take full advantage of the lovely weather and sunny days here ın Turkey. We have “redefined priorities” and lıke leisure actıvıtıes such as swımmıng, cycling boatıng and campıng - just taking it easy. We ınvıte you to come and do exactly the same and enjoy the comforts of our Vılla and the fabulous local surroundıngs of Dalyan.

For us, Lazy Duck Villa is the perfect way to unwind in the sun. Please come and see for yourself..... and enjoy beıng lazy !

Karen Clark - Simon Clark purchased this villa in 2013

Why Karen Clark - Simon Clark chose Dalyan

We love Turkey and would come here to re-charge our batterıes and relax on a well earned break. 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.

What makes this villa unique

Location is the vital consideration for a holiday property. Lazy Duck Villa is on a residential street, close to amenities – but not “next door” to them.It is a genuine short stroll into the centre of town, which is important with little ones.The property is fully air conditioned and has a large pool and child’s splash pool alongside. 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.

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

Lovely villa that met all our expectations and more. Well maintained and spacious. Only a 5 minute walk to the shops, restaurants and river. Great when you have small children. The area is beautiful, locals are friendly. We had an amazing time and would definitely love to return. I would recommend this villa.

Lovely lazy duck

  • 5 of 5

Although been to Dalyan a few times this was our first visit to Lazy Duck. Villa is of a very high standard added to the many complimentary bits and pieces provided by the owners. Just a short stroll into the center of town ( even shorter when you find the short cuts) . Private pool area and comfortable sun loungers and the provision of beach towels a real bonus. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, weren’t ready to come home at all.

As always locals were friendly, scenery stunning , food delicious and the weather was hot. Back home a few hours and already planning our next trip. I hope Dalyan remains just as it is, charming, welcoming, laid back.

Wonderful stay in a charming location.

  • 5 of 5

Lazy Duck villa was very spacious, extremely clean and very well maintained. The furniture and soft furnishings were of high quality giving it a homely feel. It has an immaculate and well appointed kitchen where everything you could possibly need is at hand. The management had thought of everything and the little details made all of the difference from the welcome pack to the complimentary toiletries and sunscreen. The outside space is very attractive with a lovely pool and gorgeous gardens, a big barbeque area and terrace. It is in a very good position in Dalyan as it is within walking distance from lots of restaurants and attractions. We particularly enjoyed having breakfast next to the river watching the turtles and all of the lovely local wildlife. The pavements were well maintained and the area was flat which is important if you have young children or elderly relatives. We thought Dalyan was a great place for a relaxing family holiday with fantastic scenery. There were some lovely local shops and cafés to browse around and the whole place had a relaxing atmosphere. We would definitely recommend Lazy Duck villa for a fab holiday and hope we will be returning soon.

Beautiful and well kept villa

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd time we've stayed at Luzy Duck, and would certainly stay again. It's in a great location, really close to the river and walkway into town. The villa is equipped with everything you need for a self catering holiday with lots of living and eating space. Communication with owner before the holiday is very reassuring and helpful. I would recommend staying in this villa.

Lazy Duck Villa is far more than could normally be expected! Simply everything is provided and all eventualities thought of and catered for.

We stay in Dalyan three or four times a year, usually in hotels, but this was something else, and adds another dimension to an already fabulous place!! Thank you Karen and Simon for allowing us into your villa, we will be back again!! The Hemingways and Johnstons

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.

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.
