Additional Location Information
About the Graça District
The Graça district is full of local character and offers visitors an authentic flavour of the real Lisboa. You're never too far away from an authentic pasteleria (cake shop) or restaurante. It perches on the hillside to the northeast of the city, and offers some of the most panoramic views over Lisbon.
There are two main spots to take in the vista: Miradouro da Graça, and Miradouro da Nossa Senhora do Monte, both within easy walking distance of the apartment. Miradouro da Graçais close to the thirteenth century Graça church, with a splendid terrace and open-air cafe which is open late into the evening in summer months. The Miradouro da Nossa Senhora do Monte offers equally stunning views and is the highest point in the city.
Graça also plays home to one of the oldest flea markets in Lisbon, Feira da Ladra, which takes place every Tuesdays and Saturdays at campo Santa Clara, and is just a 10 minute walk from the holiday apartment.
The district is served by elétrico 28, a vintage yellow tram which is almost a tourist attraction in its own right!The tram #28 route takes in many of Lisbon's tourist sites and connects the apartment withSão Jorge castle, the Miradouro Portas do Soland the Alfama, Mouraria, Bairro Alto districts.
Lisbon is a big city, but is easy to get around. The great location of this apartment is ideal for seeing Lisbon's sights, thanks to the great transport connections.
As well having Tram #28 on the doorstep, the apartment is less than 5 minutes walk from the nearest metro stop: Anjos.
Rossio Central Square is a ten minute metro journey away and, from there,you can walk to the Castle of St. Jorge in under 10 minutes, or onto the atmospheric and Moorish-influenced Alfama neighbourhood. Chiado and Barrio Alto are around 2kms away, around a ten-minute metro journey. Barrio Alto offers some of the best nightlife in Europe - and has an eclectic and lively mix of restaurants, bars and clubs.
Don't miss visiting Torre de Belém on the banks of the River Tagus. The tower is one of the 'seven wonders of Portugal' and a UNESCO world heritage site, thanks to the significant role it played in Portuguese maritime history during the Age of Discoveries. Whilst there, you can also visit the Mosteiro dos Jerónimos, which also stands on the shore at Belem, and is also a UNESCO world heritage site.
Take a day trip to the Palácio Nacional da Pena. It stands on the top of a hill above the town of Sintra, and on a clear day it can be easily seen from Lisbon and much of its metropolitan area. It is one of the major examples of 19th-century Romanticism in the world, a national monument and UNESCO World Heritage Site. From the apartment, take the metro from Anjos to Rossio ,then take the train from there to Sintra train station.
Alternatively, the beaches at Estoril and Cascais are easily reachable by train (trains leave Cais do Sodre station every 30 minutes and journey time is around 30-45 minutes).

Lovely stay in blue :-)
We were three persons in this apartment, and from start to end Nuno and Tania (owner and his partner/coworker?) take really good care of you. We received emails and info upfront, Tania waited with the key on our arrival and helped with any question we had. The apartment is exactly like on the pictures, and it is easy to move around (the tram 28 is just 2 walking min away).
You will have enough towels at your disposal, and the wifi is great. Great value for money.
Good place if you travel with family or friends and if you want to stay in an apartment.
One suggestion for the owner should he change the furniture any time soon: My husband is quite tall, so a bigger bed (1.80m broad) would be great for the master bedroom :-)

Good stay at nice appartment
This nice and clean appartment is at walking distance (5mins) from anjos metro station. This implies that you're in the city centre of Lisbon within 25 mins. The neighbourhood of the appartment itself is not so special: no bars, restaurants etc, but there are some shops (including a supermarket). Read more

Dear Geert -
Many thanks for taking the time to review your holiday at the Turquoise House. We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay and we really appreciate your kind words, particularly regarding the quality of the accommodation.
I also appreciate your feedback regarding the neighborhood whilst at the same time we feel very sorry that you didn't have the chance to experience some of the best traditional restaurants, coffee shops and bars we do have at walking distance from the apartment (without thinking too much, there's at least 6 places we'd highly recommend which can be reached in no more than 5 minutes walking). Next time we'll make sure we'll give you this insider tips.
I hope that you will be travelling to Lisbon again soon and we look forward to welcoming you back.
An Enjoyable Stay
I selected this apartment because of all of the other great reviews and I was not disappointed. We were a group of six travelling to Lisbon to run a half marathon. The apartment was very comfortable and matched the website's descriptions. Nuno and Tania (hosts) were very friendly and helpful. The apartment is located close to the anjos Metro stop, so it is easily accessible from the airport. You are either a 15 minute walk or three metro stops from the heart of downtown. I highly recommend the restaurant Carvoaria down the road. I hope that your stay will be as enjoyable as ours. Read more

Dear Tre -
Thanks so much for taking the time to review your recent stay at the Turquoise House. We are absolutely thrilled that your expectations were exceeded.
Your kind words are truly appreciated as well as the great advice on the location of the apartment and also on the amazing Carvoaria restaurant!
We hope to see you again very soon.
Can it get any better?
The Turquoise House was flawless! It's located within the city, easy access to the famous 28 Tram and close to many historical sites in Lisbon. The cost was very reasonable compared to what you get in return; 3 bedrooms, one bathroom, a huge living room, and amazing dining room to share with up to 6 people. It's located near many of the best restaurants in town so if you're interested in having a relaxing walk than transitioning to a delicious dinner, this is the place where that could happen. The hosts' were very attentive to my every need and i would definitely recommend staying at this savvy apartment. Thanks everyone!!
Perfect location, near metro station, easy access to downtown!
No words to describe such a great experience! The appartament is well decorated, clean and comfortable! The renters are awsomely kind and helpful!i strongly recommend! Read more

Thank you so much for your wonderful review on your recent stay with us.
It is always a pleasure to hear that our guests have enjoyed their experience and that their goals have been delivered.
I am sorry I did not get to meet you in person as I was away at the time but I hope I will have that pleasure again in the future.
Thanks you also for your comments regarding our staff!
It was a joy to welcome you as guests and we hope to see you back soon.
Authentic experience or tourist experience?-have both!
Having vacationed in Chiado two years ago, I felt I'd experienced the heartbeat of Lisbon, but after retreating to Graca this time around, I realise that nothing can compare to experiencing its soul.
This apartment (which undersells the space, because it feels like a mansion) allows you the opportunity to do both. And in style if you just hop on the quirky No.28 tram.
The décor of the Turquoise House is tasteful and contemporary, without reverting to a generic palette of white and beige you so often get at flashy hotels. Instead, the owners have infused a bold mix of colour, print and texture into every room that reflects the creative spirit of the community.
The apartment had all the facilities you need for a self -catering holiday.We had everything we needed to prepare a lavish 30th Birthday dinner celebration. The supermarket was just metres away.
This was the first time we'd taken a trip which didn't revolve around the city centre, as we wanted to take the tourist shades off for a few days and see what the real Lisbon is like, from more of a local perspective. It was the best decision we could have made. The views between Chiado and Graca are stunning, and a dream for an amateur photographer like me. The photos basically took themselves! I would recommend visiting Miradouro da Graça, the coolest spot to chill out, sip a cerveja and enjoy the panoramic view of the Graca church and central Lisbon. It's one of the only viewpoints that boasts a cafe and is popular with locals.
It was evident in the way we were treated by Nuno and Tania that these are owners who don't just value customer service-they prioritise it! It was refreshing to receive such a warm welcome that is devoid of the artificial and almost scripted kind of politeness you get at some well-known, branded hotels.
The only problem we had with this apartment was leaving it! We would recommend it for anyone who wants affordable luxury in a place that offers the best of both worlds in Lisbon.
Un confort absolu
Un superbe séjour dans cet appartement sublime Turquoise qui est fonctionnel, confortable, joliment décoré et très propre.
Nuno et Tania sont super accueillant et ont mis à notre disposition le petit déjeuner dans une cuisine très bien équipée et conviviale! La literie est de qualité avec des draps et des couvertures impeccables. Pour notre part nous étions en couple avec deux enfants de 10 ans et 8 ans c'était parfait. Ils ont dormi dans la chambre équipée de deux lit avec télé qu´ils ont trouvés très confortable. Notre chambre avec balcon où on a pu boire un verre était également équipée d´une télé et le wifi fonctionnait très bien, le tout avec l´air conditionné ! Le top...
Encore un grand bravo et vive Lisbonne!
Un séjour innoubliable!
Fantastique appartement! Très confortable, spacieux et bien situé ! Nous avons passé un moment merveilleux. Cet endroit est un vrai petit bijou! Nuno et tania ont vraiment fait un excellent travail avec cet appartement. Après plusieurs jours de voyage à travers le Portugal, ma famille et moi sommes arrivés ici dans la soirée et on a pu se détendre immédiatement et profiter de l´appartement pour les prochains jours à Lisbonne. Les chambres et le salon étaient exactement comme sur les photos ...une qualité très luxueuse de haute gamme avec une superbe terrasse !
La cuisine avait tous les ustensiles dont nous avions besoin et était parfaite pour prendre de bon petit déjeuner ! Les enfants voulaient des toasts grillés heureusement qu´il y avait un grille-pain ! Les salles de bains sont toutes neuves et très agréable. De plus, le grand salon avec la grande table à manger et les six chaises étaient l´idéal pour notre dîner de famille. La literie des chambres etait impeccable. La déco très design avec des couleurs chatoyantes qui inspirent au repos et vous aident à vous détendre... L'emplacement de l'appartement est dans un quartier résidentiel très calme, à proximité de petits commerces et du métro. Je le recommande sans hésiter !

Des vacances de rêve...
Excellent séjour à Lisbonne dans cet appartement très agréable, calme car bien isolé par rapport à la rue. L'appartement est beau et très confortable, tout à fait conforme aux photos, il est suffisamment large avec beaucoup de lumière et décoré avec beaucoup de goût!
Il est très bien situé pour la visite de Lisbonne, avec des transports en commun proche, au cœur du quartier, on a profité d'une ambiance super sympa avec mon mari et mes trois enfants ! L'équipement proposé est parfait. Le linge et la vaisselle étaient en nombre bien suffisant et l´appartement était très propre... L'accueil comme la décoration sont exemplaires!
Merci à Nuno pour sa confiance et sa simplicité amicale! Nous conseillons tout à fait ce séjour et reviendrons dès que possible!
Le Check-in a été facile. Les frais de location sont très raisonnables, je le recommande fortement à d'autres.

Great holidays in Lisbon, super apartment
We're a small family who always wanted to spend a few days of our summer holidays both in Spain and Portugal. We've spent 4 days in Madrid and then we went to Lisbon because we wanted to visit the city, Sintra and Cascais. We had such an amazing time, Nuno and Tania have been an awesome hosts giving us extremely good advise on what can't be missed - they're locals so they know their stuff... the turquoise house is amazing, good handy location, access to excellent transport links and so but so much comfortable. The equipment and details are great, very tasteful throughout - and it's huge, with 3 excellent bedrooms, an amazing living and dining room... and even a terrace!! Parking is actually fine when compared to some situations where we've tried to park downtown.. all good!
We'll be back, we will definitely be back! Thanks Nuno and Tania! Read more

Lovely Lisbon apartment
We loved stay at Nuno's place. The apartment is stylish and wide, decorated with a good taste. Location is good. Check in was quite flexible: we arrived earlier that agreed and Nuno's assistant Tania offered to leave our luggage until the room is cleaned up and ready for us. After she recommended us some interesting Lisbon sights, local bars and shopping places. Thank you very much Nuno & Tania!

We had a very pleasant stay in Lisbon and Nuno's apartment played a major role in it! All went pretty smoothly, property is so well decorated and comfortable, has the benefit of air conditioning, satellite TV and even a small outside terrace where you can enjoy yourself! We were a group of 4 and almost felt like home since we had all the amenities we could think of.

Family of 6 enjoyed the stay
We (a family with 4 kids between 12 and 22) stayed in Turquoise House 2 weeks in July-August 2013 to explore Lisbon. We enjoyed :-) the spacy apartment and the fact that its placed outside the turist area but still just in walking distance to many of the sights in the center.
The terrace was used for barberque several times and we used the kitchen and diningroom always for breakfast and some days for dinner.
The apartment offers two real comfortable queen size beds in the two major beadrooms. In the combined office/bedroom the coutch was not as comfortable and one of our kids slept there and one the coutch in the livingroom. Also - with only one bathroom (large and nice) we would only recommaned the apartment for 6 persons not 8.
Likely due to road and tramp renovation in the street connecting to Garcia street we experienced some noise in the apartment from buses driving through this - as said - otherwise quiet street. Read more

Los Angeles, California
Excellent apartment in Lisbon city centre!
We're a family of 5 who had been travelling all over Europe for 2 months on a sabbatical and we were truly impressed with the Turquoise House where we decided to stay in Lisbon for 5 days.
First of all the service, truly stellar - from the moment we've booked and until the check-out both Nuno and Tania were always in touch and reachable - very helpful and very customer oriented, we felt privileged!
On the check-in - and because we arrived earlier - we witnessed a professional cleaning service company leaving the apartment - yes, Nuno and Tania use a professional company to make sure the apartment is all tidy up for the next guests! Wow.
The apartment is all about details and full of character and charm, with high ceilings, great well sized rooms and a little terrace where we had some barbecues and enjoyed the quietness of the city! Even though the turquoise house is not right spot on the city centre it's like 10 minutes by tube and honestly, you wouldn't want to stay downtown, it become slightly dodgy in the evenings... besides that, you've plenty of really nice restaurants, supermarkets, patisseries, etc just around the corner so literally everything you'd need!
I couldn't recommend more the turquoise house and we'll be sharing this gem with our friends and family in case they want to visit Lisbon! Read more

Wonderful apartment in a great location
The apartment has a great location, close to a Metro station which makes it very easy to get to any point of interest in Lisbon. There are shops, cafetarias, pharmacies nearby, whcih is also a great plus.
The apartment is very arty and colourful and full of character. We enjoyed fully our short stay. The best of the whole experience was meeting Tania and corresponding with Nuno, who although away, kept in touch the whole time.
Thank you Tania and Nuno for letting us stay in your lovely apartment!

Dear Martins family, Milena -
we feel privileged to receive such outstanding comments of your recent stay at the Turquoise House - apartments in Lisbon. We were wowed by having you sharing such review with the community and we do indeed felt fortunate to having you at our place - you were terrific guests.
We do expect to welcome you back again soon.
We were always very apprehensive on booking an holidays apartment on the internet but we've just changed our mind. We were a family of 4 adults and we've just returned from an amazing 4 days visit to Lisbon. Firstly, you always need to stay at least 1 week to visit all that the Lisbon region has to offer, everything always seem so close, either by public transport or car! Secondly, the turquoise house and our hosts Tania and Nuno were absolutely amazing and restless, always in touch to know how things were going, if we needed anything, etc - superb hosting service!
This apartment in Lisbon is absolutely beautiful and you can clearly see that a lot of passion has been put into it - it's definitely not an apartment which you see it's made for a profit. There's details everywhere, the sizes of the rooms are amazing, the comfort is really good. Everything blends well together and it's so good to come back home (yes, it was our home!) after an exciting day in the city. I couldn't recommend the turquoise house more and the only sad thing is that we couldn't stay longer!
We will most certainly return and will also be telling our friends and family about the lovely apartment to stay in the magnificent Lisbon! Read more

It was lovely to have you at the Turquoise House and thank you so much for your wonderful comments.
We are truly delighted to learn that you had an enjoyable stay with us, we are truly appreciated for your commendations about the apartment, its amenities, comfort and decor.
We very much look forward to welcoming you back to the Turquoise House in the not too distant future.
We arrived from the algarve on a Sunday - not too much traffic about and managed to negotiate the one way streets quite well. Found a parking space 2nd time around, although there are parking garages that can be used for a small fee. We were met by Tania who gave us a great welcome. Apartment is on 1st floor (no lift) and is very spacious (would recommend no more that 5 people - only 1 bathroom) and very clean. Furniture is shabby chic but clean and comfortable. Wifi is a plus along with the TV and computer. There is a small space outside with a small BBQ and some planting that is in need of a bit of TLC. Kitchen is well equipped and plenty of plates, glasses etc.. We found the apartment quite noisy from traffic outside - but we later found out that there is a diversion in place on a local road meaning this normally quite street is used and the main cut through for cars and buses. Every room has air conditioning which is great during the day - note that you are not allowed to use the aC between 11pm and 8am due to local noise laws. Lots of min supermarkets nearby together with small coffee shops. Nearest Metro is 5 mins walk. There's a great restaurant 2mins way called Carvoaria - you will need to book if going after 8pm as it gets very busy even during the week.
We had a great time in Lisbon. Read more

Dear Mark -
what a pleasure to review the highlights of your stay at our apartment in Lisbon, the Turquoise House - I'm sure the community will enjoy reading your experience thoroughly.
We feel really happy that you've enjoyed the neighbourhood and the wonderful restaurants we've around, and also the transport facilities which are always so handy, namely the tube so close as well as the famous tram 28 which takes you through the most historic places in Lisbon!
Huge thanks for a perfect holiday. The apartment is lovely and everything we could have possibly needed was provided (the attention to detail in every single corner of the apartment is hands down - what was just as expected from the photo's). We had a great time thanks to Nuno and Tania's very warm and attentive welcome who also guided us on our plans to visit Lisboa and the surroundings. The apartment is very convenient, very clean, with amazing decor and also home feeling with small and interesting objects left around, we felt like home! We loved it. Couldn't recommend it more highly. Read more

Lovely stay in Lisbon
We absolutely loved our stay at the Turqoise House. Nuno and Tania were excellent hosts and made sure that we were comfortable, answered our questions and provided helpful information for sights around Lisbon. The apartment was very spacious (we had 6 in our party including 3 teenagers)and provided everyone with a comfortable place to sleep and rest between our treks around the city. It was fully furnished and all of the amenities of home were available. The apartment is centrally located and there is easy access to all of the major tourist sites. Plus there are many cafes/coffee shops and restaurants within a few blocks. Overall it was an excellent experience! Read more

many thanks for sharing the great experience you've had at the Turquoise House. We feel privileged that you've chosen the Turquoise House as your holidays apartment in Lisbon and we're also happy to know that you've had a great time in Portugal.
We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Great Comfort in the heart of Lisbon.
We have just returned from 5 days in Lisbon where we stayed at the Turquoise House which is located in the middle of the City.
The apartment is very comfortable and with 3 large bedrooms six of us were accommodated very comfortably.
The Metro station anjos is only 5 minutes walk and the views from the Castelo de S.Jorge ,which is quite close by ,are stunning.
We love Lisbon,it is a beautiful City and would definitely stay at the Turquoise House again. Read more

Dear Martin, Pamela -

You can't go wrong, so charming...
We had a very nice vacation at Nuno's place. The apartment was in a nice typical neighbourhood only two blocks away from subway, so it was easy to travel anywhere! The area felt lively but safe even we came to the apartment several times at midnight using subway.
The apartment was clean, so gorgeously decorated and charming and also so big - we were 5 of us and we've never felt that our privacy was being compromised. The 3 bedrooms are very spacious with very comfortable beds, the living room is amazing and so impressive! Also, everyone in the neighborhood was very friendly and very helpful. Nuno and Tania were always helpful and answered our messages very quickly.
You can't go wrong with the Turquoise House, you'll have an amazing experience. Highly recommended - we'll go back!

Era la primera vez de muchas tantas que viajaba y de las muchas veces que he ido a Lisboa que me decidía por alquilar un apartamento en vez de un hotel. Fui con mi pareja y dos amigos que venían de paseo desde Venezuela y según vi la paguina de internet me gustó el apartamento. Nos fuimos en coche desde Madrid. La zona donde está la casa turquesa es preciosa muy tipica, como es casi toda lisboa, ¡bella!, Aparcamos con facilidad, nos recibió Tania, encantadora muy servicial. Fuimos en Enero y lo malo es que la casa estaba un poco fria, al parecer en Portugal no se pueden tener los aparatos de aire acondicionado encendidos después de las 10 de la noche, pero al siguiente dia los dejamos puestos calentando la casa y estaba divina la temperatura.
La casa tiene de todo, platos, manteles, ropa de cama, ropa de baño, cafetera, microhondas, vamos, que no necesitas llevar nada, hicimos una pequeña compra y dejamos lo mas basico para los proximos en ir, porque nosotros encontramos cafe, azucar y alguna galleta, que se agradece al siguiente dia al levantarte tan temprano y tener por lo menos un cafe para hacer.
A una calle hay un lugar que hacen una bolleria divina para desayunar y 2 calles mas allá hay una que hace unos pasteles de belén riquisimos, el sitio es tranquilo, limpio, hombre tiene detalles que se pueden mejorar , como todo con el uso se deteriora, pero en general el precio de ese fin de semana por los 4 fue maravilloso.
No disfrutamos mucho la casa porque estábamos fuera todo el día, pero en la noche se agradece llegar aun sitio agradable.
Encima fue el fin de semana mas lluvoso en 50 años en lisboa y tiene una terraza fantástica para disfrutar en verano o primavera.
En general es recomendable, fiable, limpio, tranquilo, bien ubicado y seguro repetiré!!! Read more

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! Read more

On behalf of the team, thank you once again for your kind comments and we look forward to welcoming you back to the Lisbon soon.
Nous avons séjourné avec nos deux enfants à la Turquoise House au mois de mai 2013. L'appartement est magnifique, joliment décoré et pratique. Les pièces sont très grandes. Nous avons apprécié le petit couloir entre le séjour et la terrasse, parfait pour se détendre après une journée harassante de visite. L'appartement est frais, et malgré la chaleur extérieure, les pièces restent fraîches. C'est très pratique pour se rendre dans les différents quartiers de Lisbonne: le tram 28 est à peine 2 min de marche, la station de métro ligne verte est à 5 min de marche et vous êtes à Rossio et à Baxia à moins de 15 minutes. Nous avons vraiment apprécié notre séjour. Nuno est d'une gentillesse et d'une efficacité incroyable. Nous avons été bien accueilli par Tania qui est gentille comme tout.
Nous recommanderons sans réserve l'appartement pour les courts et longs séjour à Lisbonne. Read more

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! Read more

Wow such a lovely review! We are absolutely thrilled that your holiday experience at the Turquoise House was memorable.

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! Read more

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. Read more

The Turquoise House
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. Read more

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... Read more

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! Read more

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. Read more

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. Read more

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!! Read more

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. Read more

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. Read more

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... Read more

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. Read more

Many appliances in the place make you feel at home, if you don't want to take dinner outside, you can cook easily.

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.

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.

We had a very pleasant stay at Turquoise House - Lisbon Centre.
The place was comfortable, clean and spacious.
Help and guidance from Nuno Macedo and Tania Martins made everything smooth and easy and we really couldn't ask for any more when it comes to hospitability and service.
We won't hesitate to come back and recommend staying at Turquoise House - Lisbon Centre when in Lisbon. Read more

Dear Valkners -
it was a pleasure to host you and we're really happy that the Turquoise House met your expectations.
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 Read more

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
