General description

  • Main home
The apartment is in a small community called Arabia which has a Moorish theme. The community is located 50 meters from the sea. The apartment itself has two floors plus a large roof terrace with view of the sea. In addition there are three other terraces on either side of the apartment. There is a bedroom and bathroom on the first floor while the two bedroom on the top floor shares a bathroom. One of the bedrooms here has direct access to one of the terraces. From the front terrace there is a view of the quiet street that the community is served by and the sea across the road leading to downtown.

Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • 3 cats
My three cats are Arabian Maus that were rescued in Dubai and moved with me to Torrevieja. They are siblings and still kittens. They are very friendly, they talk a lot and want a lot of attention. They eat wet food twice a day, morning and evening and have fresh water and dry food available throughout. They sleep inside, often in the bed where it is warm :-) and are free to go out during the day.
Apart from making sure they are fed and the litter box is cleaned once a day, it would be great with some pictures and perhaps a short video of them every day.

From the terrace at the entrance you can enjoy life passing by on the street below or enjoy the view of the sea through the palm leaves. A small grocery shop with all the basic stuff is just around the corner, 100 meters away. The bus stop is a 2 minute walk away, where buses can take you either to the center of town or to the most popular beach in the areas, La Mata. Walking to either takes about 15 minutes. There are a number of restaurants and pubs within 10 minutes walk from the apartment, including Scandinavian, Indian, British and Italian cuisines. Close by there is a commercial area with a shopping center, a hypermarket, many restaurants and a cinema which also shown original language movies.

The town of Torrevieja is a destination in itself and is just a short walk along the sea. Wander along the corniche through the town and stop at one of the many cafes or bars for something to drink, day and night. Further afield, a 10 minute drive, there is a water park (open during the season) and close by that again the Habaneras shopping center. The cities of Alicante and Cartagena can be reached in less than an hour by car, going North and South respectively. Both have long histories and pretty downtown areas with cafes, restaurants and bars. Further North there is Benidorm which also host a theme park, Terra Mitica. Between Torrevieja and Alicante, facing the sea, you find the cliffs of Santa Pola where you can visit the lighthouse that is perched on the edge, or the steel gangway that actually arches outside the cliff edge. In the same area you can hitch a ride with a tandem paraglider and see the cliffs and lighthouse from the ocean side.

These dates are currently just a guidance. I will be travelling for work and the itinerary isn't fixed yet so it might be some changes. Any change will most likely be to extend the period.
