Would it also be correct to translate this sentence as "tuvalette bir örümcek var"?

Yes, although it is usually omitted in daily Turkish.

What about "Örümcek tuvalette var"? It sounds more natural to me :p

I'm not 100% sure about your sentence order (hopefully someone else will answer that) but "tuvaletteda" is incorrect... that's "IN IN the the toilet" :-)

tuvalet = toilet ; tuvaletta = in the toilet
