About Karen Mc Erlean

My name is Karen Mc Erlean and I live in Ireland with my husband and 3 daughters. I love the sun but my husband is not a big fan (or at least wasn't!). However, when I finally talked him into coming to Dalyan he realised that the heat here is so comfortable because of the low humidity. After his first visit he went home and within a year we built Villa Claddagh.

Karen Mc Erlean purchased this villa in 2014

Why Karen Mc Erlean chose Dalyan

I've been coming to Dalyan since 2007 and almost instantly fell in love with this piece of paradise and its people. The area is stunning and the people are so friendly and helpful. My husband and I decided in 2013 to build a villa and the result was Villa Claddagh, which was completed in early 2014.

Dalyan is situated on a beautiful delta on the South West coast of Turkey, just 25 minutes from Dalaman airport.

What makes this villa unique

Villa Claddagh is very close to all of the main shops and restaurants. Its just a 5-7 minute walk away. We're just 5 minutes from the local kids park and 3 minutes from Dalyan River.

The villa offers beautiful views of Lycian rock tombs and the Kaunos acropolis. The entertainment options in the villa include a 42" SMARt TV, a hard disk with over 400 HD movies, and a very good Internet connection.

Truly Fabulos Property

  • 5 of 5

Villa Claddagh is one of the best properties I have ever stayed in Karen and Paddy the owners have thought of absolutely everything to make your stay more than comfortable. The pool and gardens are stunning as is the beautifully finished interior, the location of the villa is very quiet yet only a short walk to the main resort area I will most definitely return and would highly recommend.

Exceptional Villa - Extremely well equipped

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th trip to Dalyan, we love the area and always rent a holiday villa. Villa Claddagh has been equipped to an extremely high standard and is well maintained. Located within an easy 5 minute walk from local bars and restaurants, this is our preferred area to stay. There were full and accurate details of the local area, places of interest, doctors/dentist information should it be needed. Not forgetting run/cycle routes !. Visiting out of season and with mixed weather, we did use the TV/cable etc - excellent... All of the management team, pool man, gardener a villa manager were polite and very helpful. We would not hesitate to stay in this villa again.

Fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time we had visited Turkey and in choosing Dalyan and Villa Claddagh, we were not disappointed. Everything about it was fantastic from the pick up at the airport to the day we left. The villa was roomy, light and airy and the air conditioning a welcome treat when returning home in the 30 deg heat. It was exactly as described on the website. The villa was equipped to a high standard and well maintained, from the mod cons in the kitchen, the 450+ movies/TV shows you could watch on the SMART TV and the outdoor BBQ. There were bikes available for use and with Dalyan being so flat and easy to navigate around some of us made use of them. The outdoor Kosk was brilliant and we made use of this in the midday heat.

Villa Claddagh is ideally situated in order to explore Dalyan as it is only a 5 minute walk to the town centre where there are many excellent restaurants. Some of our favourites were Hamendan, Beyouz Gul, The Four Seasons, Yenners and Lime.

For something a bit different, there is a house around the corner from the villa which advertises "home made traditional pancakes". They are fantastic and I would thoroughly recommend them. Go in the evening and order for the following morning (speak to the son as the man and women's English is not great). The potato, cheese and herbs and honey pancakes are all delicious.

From booking to arrival, I had lots of questions and Karen the owner was extremely helpful and prompt in replying, nothing was too much trouble. The same could be said for Husseyin who was our contact in Dalyan. He came to see us a couple of days into our holiday and gave us lot of advice and help.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Villa Claddagh to anyone looking for a holiday in Dalyan and I hope to return myself at some point next year.

Lovely, comfortable and well equipped villa.

  • 5 of 5

We were six adults and Villa Claddagh met all our needs perfectly. Plenty of space and really good facilities. We arrived late in the evening to find a thoughtful welcome pack of all the essentials. Some of us hadn't ridden a bike for over a decade but we made good use of the bikes enjoying early morning rides. The pool was refreshing and kept in excellent conditional by the delightful pool man. Our younger adults enjoyed the wide range of movies on the TV, which was an unexpected hit in the midday heat! The Kosh in the garden was also a big hit offering a cool place to relax in the garden - bliss! Late at night it was lovely to sit on the first floor balcony overlooking the historic tombs. The agent was welcoming and courteous and had lots of good advice. Karen organised everything including our smooth transfers to and from the villa. She could not have been more helpful. This is our third visit to Dalyan and we still find new and interesting ways to spend our time. The Saturday market is a must - wonderful fresh fruits and veggies, excellent olive oil and honey and all the usual 'knock off' stuff! A boat trip to the lake, and mud bath and hot springs is also a must. We would highly recommend booking a trip with captain Turut and his wife Neli. They can be found down on the river front before 10am. Neli provides a really delicious lunch. The local traditional Ottoman Turkish bath is essential at the beginning of a stay to prepare your skin! Wonderful experience - we would recommend Acar Park just a short walk from the Villa. Our favourite restaurants were - Yener's Place, which is along the Main Street down by the Mosque; he makes the best traditional clay pots and fajitas. Adilan's restaurant, which can be found in the market place on the left hand side, served the best sword fish and steak we have eaten anywhere. We ate at several other restaurants and did not have a bad meal anywhere. We really loved our stay at Villa Claddagh and we will be back again!!

Iztuzu Beach
Car: not necessary


The beach at Dalyan is shared by tourists and the famous loggerhead turtles. The tourist part of the beach is reached by taking one of the many public boats from the centre of town. The journey takes about 30 minutes and goes through the Dalyan Delta, which has some of the most stunning scenery in Turkey, including views of the the ancient city of Kaunos, which dates back to the 10th century BC.


The nearest airport is Dalaman which is 25-30 minutes away by bus or taxi. The town of Dalyan is pretty small and everything is within easy walking distance so car hire is not necessary. There are plenty of river boats, taxis and buses to take you to the beach or to any of the nearby towns.


The market towns of Koycegiz and Ortaca are a short distance from Dalyan by bus. Koycegiz is also accessible by river boat through Koycegiz lake. The larger resorts of Fethiye and Olu Deniz are a 50 minute drive away. Marmaris is about 75 minutes drive. Rhodes is also accessible by ferry from Marmaris.

Further Details:

Dalyan town itself is compact stretching only two miles in any direction from the centre and is framed by a glorious backdrop of pine clad mountains in every direction. The flatness of town make it a perfect place for walking with children and the elderly and a delight to cycle around. For more active holidaymakers there are forests and hiking hills all within walking distance. Dalyan is also distinguished by the lack of package tourists though there are still plenty of bars and restaurants to cater for all tastes. If you can’t find the items you want in the shops there is an excellent local market on Saturdays.
