About Sheleen Pearce
Hi are names are Sheleen and Dave and we live in West Yorkshire, although originally from South Glos we moved to the North due to Dave's job 15 years ago. We have two grown up children Darren and Natasha, hence the apartment name DAZTASH, who also love Kalkan and love visiting the apartment. We have been married now for over 30 years and cant wait to spend more time in Kalkan in our apartment.
Sheleen Pearce purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why Sheleen Pearce chose Kalkan
We fell in love with the location on our first visit in 2011 and then on our second visit in 2013 we knew this was the place to buy our "Place in the Sun". The apartment was only half built when we first viewed it but we knew straight away it was the one, with its own swimming pool and lovely views of Kalkan we just could not buy it. The builders were fantastic all the way through the building stage sending us photos and contacting us to check that we were happy with things.
What makes this Apartment unique
The apartment is the ideal place to totally switch off and relax and if you wish to socialise its only a few minutes walk to the town. Around the pool is the ideal place to sunbath and fire up the BBQ for something tasty to eat and of course to enjoy a couple of glasses of wine. We provide bath towels as well as beach towels so you don't have to worry about bringing those in your luggage. The views from the wrap around balcony are just perfect especially in the early evening.

Fantastic - One of the best!!
From the moment we arrived we fell in love with Kalkan, the people and the property. Sheleen was wonderful, so helpful with the arrangements and the apartment is to the highest standard. Very clean, well maintained and would definitely recommend.
Thank you Louise, so glad you and your friends had a fantastic time in Kalkan and that you were happy with the apartment are aim is to make sure everyone who stays in Daztash is comfortable and that its their home from home while they are on holiday. So thank you for choosing Daztash and hope you return again one day.
We have just reluctantly returned from a perfect weeks holiday in Kalkan stayng at the stunning Daztash apartment. The apartment is bright, airy and finished to a very high specification, your every need is met. The pool area is perfect with shade if you choose it! The friendly pool man is there everyday and not only attends to the pool but cleans down the outside area and furniture for you. The owners are very professional and nothing is too much trouble, they organised a well come pack and airport transfers. Kalcan is perfect, a hidden jewel on the Turkish coastline, all the restaurants we ate at were super, we especially loved their rooftops locations with spectacular view of the sea and sunsets. There are many choices of bars from relaxing to lively and not forgetting how friendly and welcoming the locals are. We would definitely recommend this property and are already planning our next stay. Thank you Sheleen and David for everything.
Thank you so glad you enjoyed your stay and that daztash made your stay perfect. Kalkan is defiantly a unforgettable place
Second time in Kalkan and had a fabulous time staying at DazTash.
The property is well situated, has stunning views and is a peaceful environment to enjoy a holiday full of R&R. It has everything that we needed to cater for ourselves, be comfortable and make it a wonderful home from home.
Sheleen was a wonderful host (from afar) and couldn't do enough for us, from start to finish.
I will definitely be recommending this apartment to friends and family.
Thank you so much so glad you enjoyed your holiday and that you loved our apartment we will be so happy for you to return and anyone you recommend us too thank you x
Fantastic location, property and especially owner
Our family of 6 have Just got back from a great two week family holiday in Kalkan, and could not praise Sheleen and her fine apartment enough.
To start with, from the very first e mail enquiry, through to e mails while on holiday to check all was well, I have had nothing but the total attention of Sheleen and her desire for our holiday to be as good as it possibly could be. The transfers were smooth and efficient , and even the requested tonic water for a welcome vodka and tonic on late night arrival was there for the post travel wind down!!
The Apartment is situated at the top half of town, a nice stroll down in the evening, or to the local supermarkets. it is close to the centre of things, but far enough away for total peace if you want it. I Would recommend a taxi back, as though not far, it is blooming hot, and the taxis very cheap and plentiful.
There is a nice buzz in the town of an evening, and even if we decided to eat in on occasions, would always start with a wander about first.
Daztash is a very good size apartment, well appointed, with all the conveniences you could wish for, and all top quality. I had worried a little as to the pool area being overlooked, and could not quite work out the configuration on google earth. I need not have worried, as although you might see the brief passing of a neighbour on their way in or out of their apartment, this is not an issue, merely a chance for a brief hello.
The information provided means you can easily take advantage of all that is on offer, and relax almost immediately you arrive.
The town itself is very very friendly. The Turkish we met were most hospitable, and have a charming, and sometimes cheeky way about them that is very endearing. I found them also to be very humble, and appreciate your status as guest in their country.
I am a first time visitor to Turkey, and having done a small amount of research, thought this to be a great opportunity for a safe, and very relaxed affordable holiday, and I was right..
Sheleen has been as good a host as the other feedback suggests, and am very happy to add my positive comments to those already made..
I am also happy for Sheleen to pass my contact details should anyone have specific questions.
Tim and family
Thank you so much for you kind words, we are so pleased you enjoyed your first holiday in Turkey and you stay in Daztash, hope to see you again soon.
A perfect 3 week holiday at DAZTASH
Any doubts that we had about visiting a new area of Turkey disappeared after our conversation on the phone. Sheleen, was so enthusiastic about the people, the food and of course the apartment in Kalkan that we started to count down the months until out visit. The Apartment looked nice in the photos but this was nothing......... We arrived at Dalaman to picked up by the arranged Taxi Transfer organised by Sheleens team. Dropped off right out side the apartment, and that was the start of an amazing 3 weeks holiday. On arrival, the apartment was brilliant, the views on the photo's don't really do it justice. The walk into centre of the town was about 15 mins and to be honest at 10 Turkish (£2.50ish) Lira we got a taxi back most evenings especially after a few drinks and stomachs slightly over stretched from the amazing food. There are over 250 restaurants in Kalkan and I think you would be hard pushed to find a bad meal. Our average meal and drinks was just over the £100 for 6 people. Secondly the locals, were amazing, my 4 year old left a lot of waiters heart broken and their genuine kindness was unprecedented. Lets set the record straight any problems that are happening in the country have no effect in Kalkan or surrounding area whats so ever. What to do in Kalkan Area - you can probably go for 4 years in a row and still find new things to see and do. We hired a boat £200 for the day and was probably the best thing we did, along with Xanthos, Quadbikes, and the Kalkan shopping experience. Other than the excursions, we were more than happy to stay at the apartment during the day with sun loungers, and the much needed pool. There is more than enough room for 6 people offering hours of sun as well as shaded areas to cool down. We used the BBQ on several occasions getting meat from the butchers which seemed to be high quality meat. Also a must is the little walk down to the bakery (5min).
To end, Sheleen and her team could not do enough for us, and with regular contact even about the most trivial question, there was a response within the hour.
This was our first visit to Kalkan and we have hardly touched the surface. And will not be our last!!!! Thank you Sheleen and Dave, Thank you Kalkan.
Thank you so much for all your kind words we are so pleased you loved the apartment and of course Kalkan it's one of the places you just keep falling in love with. We hope you will return again and enjoy another great holiday in Kalkan
Great for chilling out
We stayed for 9 nights in July. The apartment is spacious and extremely well equipped. If you want to get away and relax this is just the place. Great for sun bathing but with plenty of shade as the sun moves across the sky, yes it's there every day in July unlike UK!! You don't lose touch though with the wi-fi and tv. All the best sports and news channels if you need them. Good showers and comfy beds. Loads of storage and plenty of clothes hangers unlike some apartments we have been to. As others have said there are plenty of eateries in close proximity but we recommend having a hire car as there is so much to do and see in this area whether that be action adventure or exploring historical sites. There are some great restaurants and views up in the hills.
So glad you enjoyed your holiday and our apartment. Thank you for your lovely words We look forward hopefully to hearing from you again.
