What Past Guests Are Saying
Elegant, spacious apartment, great location
This apartment worked perfectly for our family of four including a toddler and an infant. Nuno and Tania made every effort to meet all of our needs. The location was perfect in a quiet residential neighborhood, yet close to metro and tram and many sights.

Wonderful stay in a great apartment
My wife and I stayed at this lovely apartment in Lisbon in May, 2013 and thoroughly enjoyed it. The owner, Nuno, was a wonderful go to person, and Tania the hostess also made us feel welcome from the start. Very professional and friendly, they both ensured the apartment was ready for us upon arrival, and we had an idea of what tourist sites might be of interest to us even before we arrived. The apartment was beautifully furnished, and in a great location in the Lisbon, very close to public transportation, so a car was not required. We would absolutely recommend Nuno's Turquoise House in Lisbon if you are visiting this great city. It was a wonderful experience for us, and we can't wait to come back again!

Nous avons sĂ©journĂ© avec nos deux enfants Ă la Turquoise House au mois de mai 2013. L'appartement est magnifique, joliment dĂ©corĂ© et pratique. Les piĂ¨ces sont trĂ¨s grandes. Nous avons apprĂ©ciĂ© le petit couloir entre le sĂ©jour et la terrasse, parfait pour se dĂ©tendre aprĂ¨s une journĂ©e harassante de visite. L'appartement est frais, et malgrĂ© la chaleur extĂ©rieure, les piĂ¨ces restent fraĂ®ches. C'est trĂ¨s pratique pour se rendre dans les diffĂ©rents quartiers de Lisbonne: le tram 28 est Ă peine 2 min de marche, la station de mĂ©tro ligne verte est Ă 5 min de marche et vous ĂŞtes Ă Rossio et Ă Baxia Ă moins de 15 minutes. Nous avons vraiment apprĂ©ciĂ© notre sĂ©jour. Nuno est d'une gentillesse et d'une efficacitĂ© incroyable. Nous avons Ă©tĂ© bien accueilli par Tania qui est gentille comme tout.
Nous recommanderons sans rĂ©serve l'appartement pour les courts et longs sĂ©jour Ă Lisbonne.

Home away from home!
How wonderful it was to fly so far and be in a foreign place but be able to arrive to an unknown accommodation and be made to feel so welcomed and so at home. That was our experience when we arrived at The Turquoise House! The house was so warm and inviting and traveling so far with three children in tow, it was nice to feel that the house had everything we would need to enjoy our stay in Lisbon! Tania was so nice and so informative and willing to answer all of our questions! We would definitely recommend it to our friends in the States!
Response from Turquoise House (by Nuno Macedo) - 05/02/2013
Wow such a lovely review! We are absolutely thrilled that your holiday experience at the Turquoise House was memorable.
We work very hard to get our apartment on the top of the list for holidays rentals in Lisbon. You have certainly rewarded us with your generous commendations and it means a lot to us that you took the time to share it with the world.
We will be delighted to welcome you back, and we look forward to your next visit, hopefully soon.
A secret highlight of Lisbon
We enjoyed a long week in The Turquoise House very much. In the apartment we had everything we needed, first of all a plenty of space, cleanliness and any kind of useful utilities (however we didn't even use most of them ;-) It is always a great experience to stay in an original place where natives also live. We would never prefer any luxury hotel in Lisbon since we know The Turquoise House!
Many thanks an Tania and Nuno!

Turquoise House - Apartments in Lisbon
Amazing experience in Lisbon
We spent 7 nights in this apartment mid March. It was myself, my wife, our 2 daughters and my brother and we flew in from amsterdam. The location of the apartment is excellent for some quietness whilst being close to the must see in Lisbon!! You can easily get on the famous tram 28, the tube.. and be everywhere in no more than 20 minutes! It's well suited for tourists but you also get an authentic neighborhood to go with it. The apartment itself is super clean (they've a professional cleaning company!!), with a terrific and impressive decoration and yet very cozy.
The apartment is truly special. Beautiful and well appointed there is no way a hotel is better than this. If you ever wanted to live (and I mean live!) like a local this is the perfect place to do it. Nuno and Tania are wonderful hosts - diligent, supportive and kind. Their attention to detail is evident from the moment you walk through the front door.
We'd stay here again in a heartbeat... I highly recommend the Turquoise House and will definitely stay at it in when coming back to Lisbon.

The Turquoise House
crasseux, bruyant, sombre et inconfortable
Nous avons eu la mauvaise idĂ©e de sĂ©journer dans cet appartement, suite aux commentaires plus qu'Ă©logieux de tripadvisor. Nous sommes arrivĂ©s dans un appartement crasseux, trĂ¨s inconfortable (surtout au niveau de la literie) proposĂ© au prix ridiculeusement Ă©levĂ© de 140 â‚¬ par nuit (mails Ă l'appui). De plus, l'ordinateur, Ă©tait tombĂ© en panne, comme par hasard, la veille de notre arrivĂ©e. EcoeurĂ©s, nous sommes partis le lendemain, pour trouver un hotel 4 Ă©toiles, ultra propre et spacieux au prix de 80 â‚¬ / nuit. Chercher l'erreur. A Ă©viter absolument, sauf pour ceux qui aiment sĂ©journer dans les draps du prĂ©cĂ©dent hote. De plus, le propriĂ©taire n'a pa daignĂ© nous parler directement au tĂ©lĂ©phone, mais nous a fait parvenir un mail plus que menacant. Nous avons vraiment eu l'impression de s'ĂŞtre fait berner.
Response from Turquoise House (by Nuno Macedo) - 04/05/2013
Dear Guest -
thanks for sharing your experience with the TripAdvisor and Flipkey community although it comes as a truly unpleasant surprise that you've had the determination to share inaccurate, misleading and insultuous statements of your 1 (one) night stay at the Turquoise House. Because of that and also because I trust, it's worth of the community to know that there are guests that are overprivileged by having the opportunity to stay at great places worldwide, I hereby share with everyone the email that was sent to you, 1 (one) hour after you've unfortunately checked-in at the Turquoise House, one of the TripAdvisor/FlipKey award winners.
I'm therefore deferring to the every single reader to go through it and then take an informed opinion on your appalling review.
(with copy to Flipkey)
Dear Yann -
it is with my utmost regret that I'm being forced to host you at the Turquoise House for 1 night. I've been made aware of the incidents this morning during your check-in where you and your wife, without allowing my team to address your concerns:
a) complained about the desktop not functioning properly - which we've said we'd solve it on the same day (we couldn't predict that the desktop wouldn't start up properly as it never happened before) - you've said no.
b) complained about dust on 1 piece of furniture which was superficial - we've apologised and we've immediately asked the professional cleaning services we use to go to the apartment and solve the situation - you said no and yet they went there.
c) complained about the price of the apartment and said that the nightly rate should have been 50EUR - you were always aware of the nightly rate and actually it's a great deal for 9 people (yes, nine). I think it's also worth to share with the readers where you've found an accommodation for 9 people, in Lisbon, for 85 EUR i.e. nowhere, false.
d) you were always made aware of my concerns on accommodating 9 people (4 people and 6 children) and you've said it that would be fine and you'd still like to proceed with the reservation - that issue should never have been raised this morning during your check-in (I've a copy of this conversation of ours which I'm happy to resend)
e) we've always been extremely kind to you and we have even offered you a complementary late check-out, a complementary late check-in as well as the first night for free as your flight was cancelled. In a normal occasion you'd still have to pay for that night as the Turquoise House is not responsible for the cancellation of your flight.
Regrettably you and more so your wife, have been appalling, non constructive, not keen to have a proper discussion to find the best situation and you've even refused to leave the apartment. It was my decision not to accommodate you and issue a full refund of the deposit in cash (which I'm not even obliged to do based on the terms and conditions) and you said that you were not leaving. I appreciate you were very nervous regarding the situation you went through in Madeira prior arriving to Lisbon (regarding a robbery/assault you've been victim of) but that doesn't justify the approach you've taken, very rude.
For the record, you're only allowed to stay at the Turquoise House tonight because you've 5 children with you, otherwise I'd call the police immediately. The Turquoise House has an excellent reputation, has been an award winner 2012 on Flipkey/TripAdvisor, you've been made aware of all the conditions which you've accepted and you've failed to respect the terms of your stay.
Apart from any legal action I'm entitled at this stage to progress with, I want to inform you that you should be leaving the apartment tomorrow by 11:00AM and pay 20EUR for the remaining of the daily price of a 8 people stay at the Turquoise House (again something that is against the terms and conditions of your letting which has a 2 days minimum stay period) .
I also want to inform you that by now, I've already contacted my solicitor and I already have witnesses of what happened this morning at the apartment. I also want to inform you that if any of the equipment of contents at the Turquoise get damaged or missed the police is ready to intervene straight away.
A great place to stay in central Lisbon
Turquoise House is a large, classy and comfortable apartment in an excellent district close to the metro, buses and tram. We had a month's stay and very much enjoyed the time in the apartment, finding it very easy to live in.
Nuno and Tania make a great team to ensure you have an enjoyable and trouble free stay.
We didn't have a car but it is clear that parking is a major problem in the area. Fortunately, the Lisbon public transport is close by, cheap, easy to use, and efficient. We made many trips out of the city on the suburban trains to Sintra and Cascais, and on buses south of the river, and we had no problems at all.

Dear Dave -
much appreciated for you kind comments and we're glad you've enjoyed your stay at the Turquoise House and actually that you've chosen to stay with us among so many other apartments in Lisbon.
Indeed parking is an issue in the City Center but as you rightly said the transports links are exceptional and there's always some private parking 100 meters away from the apartment (which happen to be quite cheap).
Regardless, we're thrilled to having you and we look forward to having you again soon.
Lovely apartment in Lisbon... Recommended!
There is always a bit of nervousness when booking on the internet. This apartment surpassed all our expectations. The apartment itself was beautiful, in such a quiet location and so close to the centre of town. The kitchen was well equipped so the self-catering was a breeze for our family! Lisbon was really a short stay for us, but we have really enjoyed our time here and being able to come back to such a comfortable and relaxing apartment contributed greatly to our enjoyment of the town.
Lastly a special notes to the friendly e-mails when we were booking which were fantastic... Turquoise House: a superbly appointed apartment with a friendly owner who went out of her way to make our stay a success...

Lovely & charming apartment
The perfect apartment for our short stay - convenient location with a lot of transport links to the city centre must see, yet on a nice residential area of Graca. Metro stop almost on the corner, convenient shopping for eating-in (and saving money on breakfast and the occasional dinner); well-equipped kitchen; stylish and comfortable furnishings, very tasteful interior; quiet neighbors; gracious owner.
An overall great experience!

Large wonderful apartment in Lisbon
We have to agree with everything everyone else has said about this wonderful apartment. Staying here made such a big difference to our visit to Lisbon. We stayed in the apartment for 3 days and we could not have been more comfortable. House is extremely spacious, so much better than a tiny hotel room and beautifully furnished! The location was good as we were close to subways and were within walking distance to good traditional restaurants. The owners were very communicative and helpful, and I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone. Fully deserving of its consistent 5 star reviews.

We loved this place! 5 stars from NYC!
We had a wonderful time during our stay at the turquoise house, which felt like a home away from home!
The accommodation surpasses expectation, big size apartment with 3 bedrooms (!!) yet with several small touches thoughtfully added, lovely linens, a bottle of wine to welcome us on arrival. Even though it was December we really felt able to relax on the cozy terrace, having a drink and do some reading!
You are only minutes away from local restaurants and shops and we found ourselves beautifully placed for exploring the city and all the interesting things Lisbon has to offer. Excellent transport links!
We were really happy with our stay and I have been recommending your place to my friends.

Impressive apartment, nice location
We're a family of 6 coming on a trip all over Europe, from australia and we've loved staying at the Turquoise House for a short visit to Lisbon. The apartment is really big, with very very nice decoration and has all you need for a comfortable stay!!! The location is fine, although it's not on the most touristic and busy areas of Bairo alto and so on, but actually we've enjoyed staying in this most authentic and residential area, being a short tube ride to every place we wanted to visit. The hosts are wonderful and always prompt to help you out with anything. I couldn't recommend more staying at this apartment in Lisbon!!
Response from Turquoise House (by Nuno Macedo) - 01/06/2013
Dear Louise -
it was a pleasure having you. We're delighted that you were very satisfied by choosing staying at the Turquoise House and that you've found the location optimal. As a matter of fact, we also trust that in this case the quality of the apartment and the service outweighs the fact that is not on the most famous areas of Bairro Alto, Alfama, Chiado, etc - which are very touristic, busy and noisy. Also, and at the very end, all these areas are within a very short distance and the Turquoise House benefits from excellent transport links - Lisbon is such a small city anyway!
We look forward to having you - greetings from Lisboa over to Australia! We love Australia!
Amazing stay at an amazing place in Lisbon
The appartment was equipped fully with everything needed and the check-in and check out worked without any issues.
The rooms are all very comfortable and there is enough space for up to 8 people.
There are several small retailers and a supermarket very close.
The connection to the public transport (Metro and Tram28) is very good.
All in all it is a fantastic place.

Great stay, excellent postion
We had a great stay at the turquoise house...nuno and tania were perfect hosts, very helpful nothing was too much trouble, the check in was smooth, the apartment is well appointed and had everything we needed. The position is great as it is a few minutes walk to the metro which will take you downtown or uptown...we would walk downtown as well which is about 15minutes. It is close to all the beautiful sights of lisbon, but removed enough that you can enjoy the "typical" lifestyle as well! The shopping is good... supermarkets and pastelaria's close by.

Dear Maria Regina -
again so many thanks for having the pleasure to host you at the Turquoise House and for having chosen it among so many other apartments in Lisbon. We look forward to having you again.
Spacious, Vibrant Place in the city
We stayed in Turquoise House for only 2 days before a conference just outside the city. It is spacious with colorful decoration that reflect the owner's love of his flat. We didn't use the balcony, since it was raining both days, but it would be really fun with more people and/or a little entertaining. Plenty of hot water, and everything we needed was included.
It is at the top of about a 6 block walk up a hill, and it's quite close to the metro. Access to the Bairro alto, Baixa, etc... parts of the city is very easy, with only a short 5-10 minute transit time. Walking to the flea market, one of the boxes on our list, took only about 15-20 minutes.
In the front bedroom and office, you will hear cars passing, but it's quite peaceful. Lisbon has formal rules on noise, which are quite handy.
Nuno and Tania were quite helpful, and there are tourist books and a small house rules booklet with some suggestions for highlights of Lisbon. If you'd like to get away from the high traffic areas in a very close location that is infinitely more person, do give this a try. And on the topic of tries, there's a nice little pastry shop just outside the metro for pasteis de Belem...

Dear Pasquale & friends
it was a privilege to host you and such a wonderful group of friends. Many thanks for sharing your thoughts with the TripAdvisor and Flipkey communities.
Looking forward to hosting you again.
Kind regards from the,
Turquoise House team
I have just returned from a "girls trip" to Lisbon and the surrounding areas. The three of us stayed at Nuno's apt and found it to meet our needs perfectly. Tania was there to assist us with anything we needed. We rented a car for 3 days and we were able to find street parking all three days without much difficulty. However, there is a parking garage around the corner. It is a short walk (5 mins) to the metro and a short walk (20 mins) to the tourist district.
If I am ever back in Lisbon, I will stay here again.

Nice week in Lisbon
Nice flat not far from the metro station (10 min by walking).
Many appliances in the place make you feel at home, if you don't want to take dinner outside, you can cook easily.
The service is very good, Tania and Nuno are very helpful, we knew that we did not have to hesitate for information.
Internet available (Wi-Fi)

Dear Stephane -
so much appreciated for your kind words. It was a pleasure to host you at the Turquoise House and we look forward to welcome you back anytime soon.
Excellent apartment, very much recommended! Good location, easy to walk everywhere (if you want a workout walking up and down those hills) but the nearest metro stop is also only a 5 min. walk away. If we're ever coming to Lisbon again we'll stay at this same place for sure!

This is a real living house in Lisbon. Not like an apart hotel or a ready made house to use for visitors decorated for minimum needs. We thought we stayed in a friends house where everything we need is serviced. A large living room, comfortable bedrooms, a kitchen with every need. Location was also very good and we got the most of the beautiful city of Lisbon. Best value for money, thanks a lot.

We look forward to welcome you back again in Lisboa!
Wonderful apartment in downtown Lisbon
The apartment is located downtown Lisbon not far from the wonderful Nr. 28 tram way. It is large and with beautiful interiors.
All equipments worked OK. Great flexibility and availability received from the guest (check in and out for example).
We appreciated the computer with Internet connection and the Wifi, very convenient for business (just in case... ) and to plan city visits.
The Dining room is beautiful with a big TV set (2012 = Olympic Games)
In summary: we had a lot of fun with plenty of confort!

We look forward to meeting you again soon.
I went to Lisbon for a weekend break with some friends. The apartment is spectacular. It have everything you need to make your stay not only comfortable but also enjoyable. Nuno and Tania were helpful all the way throughout the booking, when u return to Lisbon I only plan to stay at the Turquoise House. It was easy to travel via taxi from our apartment, lots of resturants and view point not far from the apartment.
Thank you for making our stay so wonderful x

Dear Esther -
what a review - we're so happy that you've enjoyed your stay so much.
We're so looking forward to welcome you again soon.
We stayed an Nuno's apartment four days. First of all - hospitality - despite Nuno currently lives in London we felt his care all the time (all those emails with questions "are you ok there, do you need something else" etc :)
His partner hostess Tania was also very helpfull and responsive. Check in and check out was quite flexible. Also such simple things as welcome drink (botle of nice red wine) and snacks makes really good impression!
Apartment itself is just fabulous! It's not an average apartment for rent. This is the real house with it's history - you can see it in every detail. Nuno has made all decorations himself and it looks just amazing! We are really impressed! Thank you for everithing, Nuno and Tania!
Turquoise House, a beautiful place to be
We were three people who rented a week, and enjoyed this delightful and spacious apartment. The location is perfect for exploring Lisbon without a car, metro and bus stop very close by.
The apartment is located in a quiet area but only a few stations with the metro and you are in the middle of the night life and restaurants.
Full utensils for cooking and grocery stores within walking distance. For us, it was mostly breakfast as restaurant prices in Lisbon are nice!
My wife would like to have similar decorations at our home as this apartment, beautiful. Also nice to have free wi-fi/internet and PC.
Grate value for the money, thanks Nuno/Tania
Amazing house, huge spaces, fantastic decor. Tania as hostage is very helpfull and resourcefully made us feel that we could count on her for all we were surprised with a welcome pack that included a botltle of a very nice Portuguese red wine by the owners, that was a charmie surprise. The facilities around the area are very good and the comuttting very easy. We do recommend the house to everyone and we are looking forward to come back. Thanks to Numo and Tania for letting us use their nice properties and more than that, letting us feel like home. Pablo Ortega and friens - Madrid , Spain
