Residential mobile home parks. The easy way to retire to Spain. Facilities, support and a park home lifestyle is what they can offer. Two residential parks, however, stand out by a mile.
Park La Posada near Malaga on the Costa del Sol and Paradise Park near Alicante on the Costa Blanca.
Costa Difference Spain Ltd only represents genuine residential mobile home parks. We do not represent any park that offers tourist caravan facilities as well.
We are retiring to Spain specialists as our Facebook page shows.
For that reason visiting Park La Posada or Paradise Park is a must if you want to learn all about the exclusive park home lifestyle that exists in Spain. A residential park home lifestyle that does not exist on a campsite.
First, however you need to choose which part of Spain you prefer, the Costa del Sol or the Costa Blanca.
See for yourself:
We realise that talking to park residents who have made Spain their home is much better than talking to a salesperson.
For that reason, residents look after visits to Park La Posada and not sales staff. Residents also assist Eduardo when visiting Paradise Park. We only step in to help if you liked what you saw and heard on your visit.
The simplicity in buying mobile and park homes makes residential parks in Spain perfect locations to retire to. When buying a mobile or a park home on a residential park you become a member of a park home community.
No legal fees or purchase tax to pay on top of the purchase price makes the buying process even nicer.
Being part of a community is very important when moving to a new country because it means you are never left to fend for yourself. You will have the support of the park and the residents already living there.
A community spirit thrives when you have a park with like-minded residents. That is what makes residential parks in Spain so different from camping parks.
A short visit to a residential park in Spain will open your eyes to a very relaxed lifestyle that is being enjoyed right now by all the residents. The park to visit in the Costa del Sol area (Malaga) is Park La Posada. The park to visit in the Costa Blanca area (Alicante) is Paradise Park.
The genuine residential retirement mobile home parks in Spain that we represent provide their residents with first-class facilities, plenty of support, and a wonderful park home community lifestyle.
The lifestyle includes the parks taking care of everything. The residents you will meet as you stroll around the park, on a visit, all started out by visiting the park. Once they had decided to move to Spain they become a resident of Spain in no time.
Park La Posada also provides the services of a free translator to take care of all the paperwork required to get you settled in Spain. Made easy of course because you have chosen to live in a residential park rather than a campsite that also has mobile homes.
Residents only pay the registration fees which are NIE certificate (9.64 euros/person) and residency document (12 euros/person). In the event that documents being produced for residency purposes need to be translated into Spanish, the costs are between 50 and 110 Euros.
On the mobile home parks:
Everyone speaks English. The bi-lingual reception is on hand to deal with everything Spanish. Subletting of homes to holidaymakers is not allowed in keeping with the parks residential status. Friends and family are welcome to stay of course. The parks are also pet-friendly subject to sensible rules.
There is no easier way to move to Spain to live. After buying a mobile or park home in Spain you will make new friends, guaranteed. You will also live alongside like-minded neighbours within a settled mobile home park community in Spain.
The fact that you are never left on your own to fend for yourself is the reason residential mobile home parks in Spain are so successful. The park, new friends, and new neighbours between them have all the answers from where can I get this? to how do I do that? The community spirit on the park is worth its weight in gold.

Why residential parks?
Residential mobile home parks like Park La Posada and Paradise Park do not have tourist camping facilities like the parks all along the coast. There is no subletting of the homes allowed either.
That means the only people who get to enjoy a holiday in the park will be visiting family and friends of one of the residents. That is what makes these residential mobile home parks so special.
Residents’ guests soon feel like residents themselves in no time. They will enjoy the relaxed way of life seeing first hand what modern mobile homes are like now. They also get to meet lots of interesting people in the park.
Mobile home parks are ideal for both couples and single people. The lifestyle is the same. Everyone makes new friends and family back in the UK are just a few hours away by plane.

La Posada Mobile Home Park:

In 2008 the park became the first dedicated retirement mobile home park in Spain. They added new services to include a translator to complete the standard Spanish registration processes. This includes registering with the local doctors and the town hall.
It is also the only mobile home park where you can take a look inside a brand-new Spanish built park home.
However, the park also offers resale mobile homes. The plots on Park La Posada are all landscaped and 200 sqr metres.
Facilities include the reception, swimming pool, community centre and bar. There is also an open-air gym as well as a four-lane outdoor, competition standard bowls green.

Paradise Mobile Home Park
Paradise Park in Albatera near Alicante was the first mobile home park in Spain to have custom-built park homes on the park. The homes are in keeping with the fact that it is a very exclusive residential park.
On Paradise Park, you will not find a clubhouse or bar. You will, however, find a fantastic swimming pool, gated community and residents making the most of the fact that it is a private residential park surrounded by palm trees and fruit trees.
The ambience on the park has no equal and this is not by accident. The owners did not want to compete with Park La Posada and the social life that La Posada park offers. Instead, it has gone for a relaxed “living in Spain” lifestyle where the support is there but not the on park social life. It is very much in the style of a UK residential open all year park.
Presently Paradise Park has a few resale custom-built park homes for sale on prime plots. One is even overlooking the wonderful swimming pool. Visits to Paradise Park are conducted by Eduardo from Costa Blanca Trading who are main agents for the park.
Eduardo will assist in helping to book a hotel in the area and arrange airport transfers. His service costs £79 and covers up to four people.
As with visits to Park La Posada you can arrange with him a day visit to the park whilst enjoying a holiday in the area. He will show you the park and the town of Albatera.
Alternatively, you can come on a dedicated four-day three-night visit to include airport transfers. To arrange your visit call him on 0034 657 63 17 45 or use the contact form on the Paradise Park website.
Corrales Park is a new park that is in the village of Los Corrales. This mobile home park has a very Spanish feel about it.
Technically it is on the Costa del Sol but it is an hour+ from the beach. It is a lot nearer the lakes which to many people’s minds are a lot nicer.
Owned by a famous Spanish flamenco singer it has a small rural hotel and a fabulous bar and restaurant. The park is the dream park for all countryside lovers. Every mobile or park home enjoys wall to wall countryside views.
Corrales Park offers residents a Spanish way of life very different to UK parks. Residents integrate into the local Spanish community. The locals enjoy the bar, restaurant and hotel which adds to the atmosphere.
Back in the UK people would be queuing up to come onto this mobile home park. We call this area the Andalucía lake district. It is only a short drive to all the local lakes including the famous Flamingo Lake at Fuente de Piedra.
The nearest airport is Malaga which is about 75 minutes away.
Park Corrales, however, is about the only park in Spain that offers clients the chance to bring their own mobile homes. Visits to the park are such that anyone who has a mobile home that is approved in advance in terms of quality and age can visit the park.
On a visit, you will be looked after by the owners and you get to decide if the park is for you. If you love the Spanish feel and countryside setting you get to choose a plot. Each plot is guaranteed wall to wall views. To arrange a visit you can call 0800 772 3980 or use the contact form on the Corrales Park website.
There is a video of the park on their website.
Resale Mobile Homes
Re-sale mobile homes make moving to Spain easy, you see exactly what is for sale. In short resale mobile homes come with lots of extras. Homes for sale include air-conditioning, sheds and washing machines.
Currently, resale mobile homes all include a decking area adapted for all year round use. This turns a mobile home into an are for residential use. 80 square metres of living area within the 200 square metre plot.
When buying a resale mobile home already on a residential park you will own the home outright (freehold) with the plot it is on owned and maintained by the park (leasehold). The plot includes the use of all the facilities and services that the park offers.
Resale homes are a perfect way to retire to the sun. This is because you are not only seeing the quality of the mobile home park it is on but the quality of the resale home as well at the same time.
If a resale home goes on sale priced to sell quickly (or reduced as such) we offer a “PRICE ALERT” service.
We send out a price alert e-mail informing all subscribers that there is a home on the site that is the subject of a price alert. Subscribers know straight away with a link to the home involved.
To receive that service you can sign up at the bottom of any web page.
Custom built park homes
As park home designers we work alongside Alhambra homes in Alicante. Over the years we have helped lots of people design their own park homes here in Spain. We are in fact the only company in Spain to offer custom-built park homes built in Spain.
The models we have designed can easily be customised and for all the design and build details why not visit the main website for park homes, www.alhambraparkhomes.com
The Windsor model is the most popular. It is a two bedroom-two bathroom model that is 12.5 metres long and 4 metres wide.
Built-in Spain for Spain they offer real quality thanks to the fact that they do not have to travel 1500 miles from the UK to the park. Resale park homes might come onto the market over the next few years because they will never be older than 2016 models.
Our Team And The Support
Costa Difference Spain Ltd commits itself to represent residential mobile home parks only. It means we never show clients a mobile home park that offers tourist camping facilities.
Residents can always enjoy the beach when they want and then return home. Dedicated residential mobile home parks are few and far between in Spain.
Here to help:
The park takes over once you are living here. Feel the sensation of being in real Spain the moment you exit the park. Sunshine and Tapas is a way of life here and not a holiday experience.
The quality of the mobile home parks plus mobile home prices provide a very low-risk way of retiring to Spain. Parks provide security and support. Residents on the park help you settle in as well.
Like in the UK it only requires a legal sales agreement (which we prepare) to buy a home. Pets are also welcome in the parks. Owners are subject to certain rules within the parks such as on leads and poop scooping.
There are plenty of walks around the parks for dog owners and residents without pets alike. Breeds on the Spanish dangerous dogs’ list are not permitted on the parks.
The newsletter is also a good way of keeping in touch with what is going on and you can sign up using the link on the website. Here is what was sent to all subscribers last month. The monthly mobile homes in Spain newsletter.
