UK style residential mobile home parks
Two dedicated residential parks in Spain.
Visiting a genuine dedicated open all year residential mobile home park in Spain with a specialist company like Costa Difference Ltd is ideal for anyone interested in retiring to Spain one day.
The two genuine residential parks we represent in the south of Spain are very different from holiday parks along the coast that have tourist camping pitches as well as plots for mobile homes. Dedicated residential parks do not have camping facilities and do not allow sub-letting of homes on the park.
That means the only people to enjoy a holiday on the parks will be visiting family and friends of one of the residents themselves. That is what makes these parks special. Visitors feel like residents in no time as they soak up the relaxed atmosphere. That is why residential parks are now seen by many people as an ideal way to retire to the sun.
Resale mobile homes for sale on the parks include decking and a lot more besides making them great value. You can see which homes are for sale using the resale mobile home link at the top of the page.
For new UK manufactured mobile homes to go onto either park we work with a major European UK mobile home distributor and prices start from £37,190 plus installation. We arrange for you to see the models in the UK if you are interested in a new UK manufactured home on any of the parks.
We also have a range of Park Lodge show homes designed by us and manufactured in Spain which start from 56,575 Euros. These can be seen on the La Posada Park Lodge show ground during a fact finding visit.
A short dedicated visit to Spain flying into Malaga will show you why Park La Posada on the Costa del Sol is considered to be the number one residential park in Spain. It only costs £79 per person which includes airport transfers and hotel accommodation. You can also add a “£25 bolt on” to the La Posada Park four day visit as well and get to see Corrales Park which is located inland in Andalucia.
Park e-brochures can also be requested using the form on the right hand side of this website. They are designed to give you an insight into the park lifestyle before you visit. You can even make your own way to the park if already living in Spain or on holiday with a car, we simply need to know when you are coming.
Why are dedicated residential mobile home parks in Spain are now seen by many as the ideal way to retire to Spain? This is because buying a Mobile Home or a Park Lodge Home on a residential park in Spain is exactly the same as buying one on a residential park in the UK. The big difference of course is better weather plus a lower cost of living when living on a park in Spain.
The quality of the parks themselves plus the mobile home prices provide a very low risk way of retiring to Spain. The parks provide security and support of course but it will be fellow residents who will be most keen to help you settle in.
Many resale homes advertised on our site are on sale again after a few years simply because the owners are confident enough to take their retirement in Spain to a different level and move into one of the local villages. The system works perfectly because mobile homes are so easy to buy or sell. There are no Solicitors or local Lawyers involved (unless you want them to be) as a standard legal Sales Agreement tied to a Park Contract is used.
Park La Posada opened in 2004 and over the years has become the number one residential retirement park in Spain. The park is perfect for us to show on a short dedicated visit because you will see all aspects of park life as it should be. You will get to see the quality of the park plus meet current residents as you stroll around. It is also the only park where you can take a look inside a Park Lodge Home.
Following your fact finding visit you will then be in a position to decide if you are ready to retire to Spain or not. You will know for sure just how good the park is, plus you will have seen that everything on the park is conducted in English. You will also know that you can pay for your home in £’s and that living in Spain with like minded new friends and neighbours on your chosen park is both affordable and easy.
Should you decide to fulfil your dream and retire to Spain then Costa Difference Ltd takes care of everything. It does not matter if you decide on a re-sale Mobile Home, a new UK manufactured Mobile Home or a custom built Residential Park Lodge Home because the paperwork is much the same for all three types. Like in the UK it only requires a legal sales agreement (which we prepare) or a new home invoice to complete any purchase.
We are retiring to Spain specialists with a great team in place. The whole team are on hand to show you the best residential mobile home parks that Spain has to offer and support you during the buying process until you become a resident on your chosen park. The sensation of being in real Spain is with you the moment you exit the park. Sunshine and Tapas becomes a way of life here and not a once in a while holiday experience.
Once living in Spain, you will soon appreciate the park lifestyle and community spirit with new friends and neighbours. It also does not matter is you are a retiring couple or a single person because the social life is exactly the same. Owning a home for semi-retirement first also works because that means you will be 100% settled when you do get to retire in a year or two.
Not speaking any Spanish is not a problem in the slightest because on the park itself everyone speaks English. The bi-lingual Reception on the park will deal with everything Spanish as part of the comprehensive service they offer. Why not check out the idea of retiring to Spain in more detail by requesting park brochures? There is a whole new lifestyle just waiting to be explored.
Park La Posada is a residential mobile home park in the village of Alameda near Malaga on the Costa del Sol. It has been open for over 14 years and has established itself as the premier park to visit. It is the biggest of the three parks and it is the park with the most facilities. It has a wonderful community spirit. The nearest town is Antequera and you fly into Malaga airport.
Corrales Park is a new park that is in the village of Los Corrales. This park is totally Spanish. Owned by a famous Spanish singer it already has a small rural hotel, a fabulous bar and restaurant and as one lucky couple found out a riding school and stables within the complex. They were horse lovers and to think they only need to walk down the road and watch horses being trained in the Spanish way.
This park is a dream park for all country lovers. Every home enjoys wall to wall country views. Back in the UK people will be queuing up to come onto this park. We call this area the Andalucian lake district as 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.
Pets are also welcome on the parks subject to certain rules and conditions within the parks themselves. There are some wonderful walks around the parks enjoyed by both dog owners and residents without pets, adding to the healthier lifestyle that living in Spain offers. Breeds on the Spanish dangerous dogs list are not permitted however.
Re-sale mobile homes. See them on a park visit.
On offer is a great selection of residential use re-sale mobile homes in Spain for sale. Makes include Willerby, ABI and Pemberton.
Because they come with everything in place and are adapted for all year use by the current owners they are great value. Re-sale mobile homes make moving to Spain easy and they all come with lots of extras including decking.
The other advantage of a re-sale mobile home in Spain is that everything is included in the one price. This can include air-conditioning, sheds, washing machines and in many cases some quality decking furniture. The decking is what made this home very special when it went on sale.
Residential Park Lodge Homes: Check out the show homes on display.
Residential Park Lodge Homes are custom built in Spain and you can order one to be built to suit your requirements. They are constructed in a very different way to that of UK Mobile Homes which are built on a production line using the same methods and materials as static holiday homes.
Park Lodge Homes are very different, every wall is fully insulated and solid. In the Solero, Sandia, Sandringham, Windsor and Ascot you will not see one single join in the walls. The Reading and Langport models are production park lodges that can be ordered as per the show home and delivered in weeks.
All the other models can be ordered in different colours plus certain design changes at no extra cost. They are all homes you can personalise because they are custom built to order.
Check out the full range on the Park Lodge Homes listing page.
The 2018 Summer Edition Reading model for example is now on the La Posada show ground. Changes include a mirror set up in the lounge, a new style slate + electric fire place. It is a fantastic Park Lodge that will surprise you. There is no need for a two bedroom home because the Reading converts into a full two bedroom home in an instant when you have guests. Clever by design.
New Park Lodge Homes designed by Costa Difference Ltd and built here in Spain have changed the way people now look at the residential parks. They can see themselves living in these wonderful well built homes. In the last two years Park Lodges have been the home of choice for many on Park La Posada. This is all down to the show homes that were on display. Every one was sold.
The new show ground on La Posada now has The Reading, The Langport and The Solero. The Sandringham, The Windsor and The Ascot are all in production. Park Lodges designed by us. 2 models include the Suite EFECT™ system designed by us as well.
New mobile homes. See the models in the UK
For a new mobile home on all parks we offer Willerby BK Bluebird, or Regal Leisure mobile home ranges. Prices start from £38,284 including transport to the park in Spain.
With both Willerby and Regal it is possible to see show homes in the UK after reserving a plot. They also have models on display at various mobile home shows throughout the year. Those shows are perfect for us to point out which models will suit you best.
Being dedicated to representing residential mobile home parks means we never show clients any mobile home park in Spain that incorporates tourist camping facilities.
You can relocate your existing mobile home from a park in the UK to Spain or from a park in Spain to Corrales mobile home park if the mobile home is less than 4 years old and at least 37 foot long. Relocation information
The mobile home parks:
Dedicated residential mobile home parks are few and far between in Spain which is why we only represent Park La Posada near Malaga on the Costa del Sol, Park Corrales also near Malaga
All parks are 100% dedicated retirement/semi retirement parks for the over 50’s, with no subletting allowed on the park. That is important to us because the last thing that the “perfect residential park lifestyle” needs is different holiday makers renting the mobile home next door every two weeks.
The lifestyle we promote on the parks in Spain can be experienced during a visit. With us you can visit the best residential parks to find out what living in Spain is all about. It is not simply the better weather.
With our support you can plan your retirement/semi-retirement in Spain.
The parks will deal with all the paperwork required to live in Spain. The NIE (National registration number), obtain the “Residencia” (needed to live in Spain full time), register with the local town hall and register with the doctors.
Part of our service is to arrange a local Spanish bank account for you which means you can use an online service like Transferwise to transfer money from the UK to Spain getting the best currency exchange rates on the day.
Using your UK debit card to make the GBP£ payment for the transfer in Euros € and the money is transferred to Spain in a matter of hours.
How to see for yourself:
You are welcome to visit either of the parks by prior arrangement on your own whilst you enjoy a holiday in the area. We have residents living on both parks who will love to show you the park and we are happy to send directions.
The Costa del Sol:
Is the location of the outstanding Park La Posada near Malaga. No other residential style mobile home park on the Costa del Sol comes close to Park La Posada in terms of quality, 5 star facilities and service.
Established in 2004 it has developed into a perfect park for the over 50’s. They take care of everything. Their retirement package covering registration is free of charge to get you settled in no time.
Mobile homes in Spain:
For us to represent any mobile home park in Spain it has to be a dedicated residential retirement park with all the services available to help our clients retire to Spain easily and stress free.
Getting ready to retire:
For the semi retired, the parks provide a great holiday location to begin with. The advantage is that when you retire in a year or two you will already be settled in Spain, and part of the established mobile home park community.
On Park La Posada and Park Corrales you will NOT be living on a camping park with camping pitches as well as mobile homes. You will be on a 100% genuine 5* residential mobile home park with NO tourist camping facilities.
The mobile home parks provide exclusive first class facilities for the residents, their families, or their guests to enjoy. The bi-lingual park reception takes care of everyone. Not speaking Spanish is not a problem.
Pre-owned re-sale mobile homes for sale on the park makes moving to Spain easy and affordable. They are established on the park with full all year decking, aircon fitted and lots of extras. They are not cheap static holiday caravans. The mobile homes are lived in all year.

BUYING A RESALE MOBILE HOME
The process is very easy. First choose from the homes on sale on our website, the homes you would like to view on a visit.
If a home ticks all the boxes during your visit you simply make a purchase request.
If the seller agrees to the sale we then arrange for a legal sales agreement to be drawn up and signed by all parties. This service costs just 200 Euros and it also includes a home check of the boiler, air-conditioning, cooker, fridge and freezer by the park engineers just prior to completion. Paying for this service takes the home off sale straight away.
A 10% deposit is then paid into a "Client Account" within 14 days and remains there until the completion date which will be on or before three months after an offer has been accepted. .
Just prior to the completion date the home is checked, we take possession of the home, and you will be advised to make the final payment to the seller. Once it is confirmed that the payment has been made the home is then yours.
No wonder resale mobile homes are so popular.
BUYING A NEW HOME
Buying a new UK mobile home or a custom-built residential Park Lodge Home is very easy. It simply involves slightly different processes.
For UK manufactured mobile homes we are partnered with Mobile Homes Abroad Ltd the largest exporter of UK mobile homes. Check out the New Mobile Homes link above to see which UK manufacturers are represented.
For Park Lodge Homes designed and built in Alicante and Burgos it is a different process. Once a plot has been reserved you can either buy a predesigned by us home or start designing your own home exactly how you want it.
A short visit to the factory in Alicante is all it takes. Where to put a French Door? Where the lounge should go? What view from the kitchen window? Questions the designer will help you with
We also offer ready designed custom-built Park Lodge homes with a new show area going onto Park La Posada. Check out the Park Lodge Homes link at the top.
New UK mobile home or custom-built residential Park Lodge Home? The choice is yours after you have reserved your plot on a park. New homes require a 35% deposit and the balance paid once the home is ready to be transported from the UK. Park Lodge Homes require a 30% deposit and the balance when the home is ready to leave the factory.
WHY COSTA DIFFERENCE?
The name Costa Difference was chosen for a reason back in 2005. Costa as in Costa del Sol or Costa Blanca, and Difference because we want to show the difference between dedicated genuine residential mobile home parks and tourist camping sites that also allow mobile homes.
Making a difference is all down to being passionate in what we do. We are also working with park owners who share our passion. The result? We are showing wonderful residential mobile home parks that are without doubt the best retirement parks that Spain has to offer.
Having chosen to represent residential parks only we are now tasked by the park owners to help people see for themselves if living in Spain is really for them. Spain does not suit everyone which is why that aspect of what we do is so important.
So where does our service start? We think that perhaps it has already started with you reading this and all the other information we have provided online. Maybe you now have some questions for us? If so please feel free to contact us and ask them.
Once you feel that you have found all the answers the next stage is to seriously think about coming on a visit to see a residential park and the lifestyle the residents enjoy.
On a short-dedicated visit you will have a golden opportunity to talk to residents you meet whilst on the park. Asking them questions at the time is a great idea because you will be hearing about their genuine experiences.
The Costa Difference way is very different. Our testimonials come from the residents themselves face to face. They have all gone through the same experiences. Started by asking questions, then came on a visit. After that it is back to the UK with plenty to think about.
If you do the same and moving to Spain becomes your dream, then we are going to be with you all the way.
There are many “Costa” companies on the internet selling everything to do with Spain but there is only ONE Costa Difference Mobile Homes in Spain. To find us again easily why not bookmark this page. We are at your service.

LATEST NEWS FROM SPAIN
Spanish prime minister, Pedro Sánchez, last week promised that Spain and the UK would reach an agreement over Gibraltar, in the context of Brexit, by the middle of October.
Speaking after the recent EU leaders' summit in Salzburg, he implied that there were still "complications" in discussions with the British government but expressed "the will" of both sides.
The "complications" in the negotiations are disagreements over "judicial and police cooperation as well as the environment and tax" and " tobacco".
"We're very near to reaching an agreement," said the Spanish prime minister, adding that the British government was being very constructive.
"I think that we can reach an agreement in October," he said.
A planned summit in Brussels on 18 October over Brexit is seen as a focal point in negotiations with the possibility of a further summit between EU leaders in November if needed.
