Originally, the house was a farmer's cortijito ("siësta house"). In recent years it was expanded to a complete house of approx. 130 m2 with a large open Andalusian-style kitchen, a dining room, a living room with wood stove, three bedrooms that sleep eight in total, and two bathrooms.

The house faces south and has sea views. The garden occupies approx. 2,000 m2 and contains a 4 by 10 meter swimming pool, which can be closed off with a fence. An outdoor kitchen with barbecue is also present. Finally, there are several terraces.

The house owes its name to the two - over 100 years old - carob trees (Algarrobos in Spanish, a protected meditteranean tree) in front of the house. It's situated at the edge of the Las Sierras de Tejeda, Almijara y Alhama nature reserve, in which you can walk endlessly. On the territory you will also find — apart from carob trees, olive trees, and agaves — pine trees, typical for the nature reserve. This causes a protected, but not remote, situation of the house, with lots of privacy and terraces both in the sun and in the shade.
