UK style residential mobile home parks in Spain
Information on how you can retire to Spain easily.
Visiting a dedicated open all year round 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.
With our help you can easily investigate the idea of retiring to Spain simply by visiting either of the two genuine residential parks we represent. The parks are very different from the tourist camp sites along the coast that also allow mobile homes. The dedicated parks we represent do not have camping facilities, or allow sub-letting of homes on the park.
The only holiday makers you will meet on genuine residential parks will be visiting family and friends of one of the residents themselves, and in many cases they become friends of other residents as well. That is what makes these two parks special.
A short easy to arrange dedicated visit to Spain will show you how parks like Park La Posada (Costa del Sol) or Paradise Park (Costa Blanca) (with the right facilities and support for residents in place) can make retiring to Spain a reality for everyone. You will be looked after by park residents on your visit who have all the answers to your questions as they have been through the whole process themselves.
Park e-brochures can be requested on the right hand side of this website. They are designed to give you an insight into the lifestyle.
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.
Our dedicated £79 per person four day, three night fact finding visits in Spain are all about being able to take a closer look for yourself. During your short visit you will be shown both the park and the lifestyle by a resident on the park.
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 two 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. Not speaking Spanish is never a problem because everything is in English on the parks. 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.
Resale mobile homes for sale on the parks include decking and a lot more besides, prices start from £21,500. New mobile homes start from £37,190 plus installation. Park Lodge show homes start from £49,995
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 retiring as a couple or as 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 10 years and has established itself as the premier park to visit. The nearest town is Antequera and you fly into Malaga airport.
Paradise Park is a retirement mobile home park in the town of Albatera near Alicante on the Costa Blanca and that has become the exclusive retirement park in the area. The nearest town is Elche and you fly into Alicante airport. Paradise Park is also one of the very few parks that allow twin unit Park Lodge homes 40 x 20 such as the Willerby Clearwater. The other park dedicated to twin unit Park Lodge homes is Corrales Retirement Park which recently appointed us as the main UK agents.
There are re-sale and new mobile homes for sale on both residential parks. You can also have a brand new custom built Residential Park Lodge Home constructed to how you want your home to be, or choose a design already prepared.
Pets are also welcome on both parks subject to certain rules and conditions within the parks themselves. There are some wonderful walks around both 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.
To help you come and see for yourself we offer four day-three night visits to either park for £79 per person that includes airport transfers and hotel accommodation. A short visit with us will show you how easy it is to retire to Spain.
Why not request park brochures and see what the two mobile home parks offer?
Re-sale mobile homes.
We have a great selection of residential use re-sale mobile homes in Spain for sale. Makes include Willerby, ABI and Pemberton. Mobile homes have evolved over the years on these two open all year residential parks.
Because they come with everything in place and are adapted for all year use by the current owners they are great value. Resale 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 includes 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.
New mobile homes.
For a new mobile home on either park 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.
Residential Park Lodge Homes:
Residential Park Lodge Homes are custom built in Spain and you can order one to be built to suit your requirements. Prices start from £50459.00 for a 37 x 14 two bedroom custom built park lodge home with French doors, Georgian double glazed windows, “Suite EFECT”™ design to master bedroom, wooden flooring throughout and full insulation all round.
Why not take a look at our visit Paradise Park and the factory in Alicante at the same time offer for only £55, which covers up to four people and you choose how long you stay in Spain. It is a very cost effective way of seeing both the residential park lifestyle and the custom built home concept at the same time.
You can also keep up to date when models are added by being on the newsletter
The latest Park Lodge Design The Thatcham is also special using the “Suite EFECT”™ system in the second bedroom.
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 either 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, and Paradise Park near Alicante on the Costa Blanca.
Both 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 two of 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 two 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.
The Costa Blanca:
Is the location of the exclusive Paradise Park near Alicante. A relatively new mobile home park (open 5 years) offering a different residential lifestyle that is perfect for anyone who wants to call real Spain their home.
We call this the “organic retirement lifestyle” because everything they offer is in tune with nature. The palm and fruit trees surrounding all the plots adds to the ambiance you can enjoy living on this quiet and secluded park. The swimming pool on the park is for the exclusive use of the residents.
Mobile homes in Spain:
Combined, we offer website visitors the best residential mobile home parks that Spain has to offer. Two versions of the retirement mobile home park lifestyle. Two different 5 star residential (no camping) mobile home parks. One on the Costa del Sol and one on the Costa Blanca.
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 or Paradise Park 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.
Both 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 mobile home or a custom-built Park Lodge Home is just as easy. It simply involves different processes. For UK manufactured mobile homes we recommend Willerby/BK Bluebird and Regal Leisure Homes.
Both manufacturers display show homes at various mobile home shows throughout the year, so you can always get to see the latest models. Regal Leisure also have the big advantage in that they are not far from Yeovil our UK base, which means we can easily arrange factory visits.
For Park Lodge Homes designed and built in Alicante it is a different process. Once a plot has been reserved you can start designing a home best suited to where it will be going. Where to put a French Door? Where the lounge should go? What view from the kitchen window?
To help you design your home we allocate a project manager to you. He will arrange a visit to the factory in Alicante so you can see for yourself all the choices you have. You can even start with a model already designed such as “The Windsor” and alter it to suit you.
No two Park Lodge Homes will look the same which means you can make the home into something special to you. You will also not be paying so much money to transport the home to the park as it will already be in Spain. This means more can be spent on the home itself.
New UK mobile home or custom built Park Lodge Home? The choice is yours after you have reserved your plot on either park. New homes require a 35% deposit and the balance paid once the home is ready to be transported.
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 two 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
Ratings agency Moody's raised Spain's sovereign debt grade last week which reflects Spain's improving economy. They cited improved growth prospects and a stronger banking sector.
The upgrade reflects the steps the government had taken to address the weaknesses in the banking sector and the increasingly balanced growth profile, despite some remaining institutional weaknesses.
The agency moved the debt rating up one notch to the upper-medium investment grade Baa1 and said the rating outlook remained stable.
This decision follows similar moves by Fitch and S&P Global earlier this year. Spain was downgraded in 2012 by all major ratings agencies amid fears Madrid could require a bailout due to the weakness of its banks. That of course did not happen.
