UK style residential mobile home parks
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 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.
Park brochures can be requested by using the form on the right hand side. They are designed to give you an insight into the park lifestyle before planning a visit. Get them in seconds straight into your inbox in PDF format for you to keep and refer to.
E-mail addresses are deleted soon after sending so if you do not get yours straight away please check the spam folder. If you do not find them there use the contact us form to tell us please.
Park La Posada residential park:
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 itself plus meet current residents as you stroll around. All visitors to both parks are looked after by residents living on park La Posada. That is why visits are enjoyed as much as they are, simply because residents are the ones showing visitors around.
It is also the only park where you can take a look inside a brand new Park Lodge show home. Park La Posada offers resale mobile homes, new Park Lodge homes and new UK manufactured homes.
The plots on Park La Posada are all landscaped and 200 sqr mtrs. Facilities include the reception, swimming pool, community centre and bar, an open air gym as well as a four lane bowls green. With a 135 homes on the park there is a settled community enjoying a new kind of social life with new friends.
No other residential style mobile home park on the Costa del Sol comes close to Park La Posada. The park offers its residents quality, 5 star facilities and the complete service.
La Posada park also gives you the chance to see some resale mobile homes as well as brand new Park Lodge show homes. There is a video of the park on their website.
Corrales residential park:
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. This park is a dream park for all country lovers.
Every home enjoys wall to wall country views and it is also the first park to allow timber lodge twin units onto the park. Full details and prices are on www.all-timber.com
The park is totally Spanish and very different. Residents are integrated into the local community with the bar, restaurant and hotel all used by the locals as well.
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. It is so very different to Park La Posada.
Corrales Park also allows double unit homes. That means you can have a Park Lodge home such as the Windsor, a UK manufactured home such as the Willerby Sheraton or a twin unit timber lodge such as the Cordoba.
This park is a dream park for all country lovers. Every home enjoys wall to wall country views . There is a video of the park on their website.
Visit the parks:
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.
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 thinking of 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.
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.
Resale mobile homes:
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.
New UK mobile homes:
For a new mobile home on all parks we work alongside Mobile Homes Abroad who are the biggest exporter of UK mobile homes to Europe. We do however look after everything right up to the point of ordering a home. Only models suitable for Spain will be suggested.
One of the most popular models at present is the Willerby Sheraton, followed by the Willerby Linear and the Delta Superior. You can get to see the models at their appointed show grounds throughout the UK.
We also attend the UK mobile home shows in the UK throughout the year working alongside Mobile Homes Abroad as their residential parks specialists.
They represent a residential park not far from Park La Posada (Park Saydo) and quite often we cover visits to both parks working with them. They look after our clients and we look after theirs, teamwork, with the client being well looked after.
New Park Lodge Homes:
Residential Park Lodge Homes are designed by us and are custom built in Spain, 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, these 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.
Timber residential lodges:
We are designing our own range of “@ll timber lodges” as well now thanks to the fact that Corrales Park have permissions in place for the full size timber lodge models 12mtr x 7mtr.
The prime model is the all new Cordoba which is a two bedroom home that also includes a decking area pre-built.
We can also offer the brand new Denia model which is again a two bedroom home sized at 12mtr x 6mtr, and the two bedroom Lakeside lodge model which features the Z wall between the two bedrooms and a bath.
You can see all the models and latest prices on the website (www.all-timber.com)
The park lifestyle:
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.
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 including the NIE (National registration number). They also obtain the “Residencia” and register you with the local town hall and register with the doctors.
Part of their service is to also arrange a local Spanish bank account for you.
Our team and support:
Costa Difference Ltd is a specialist company dedicated to representing residential mobile home parks means we never show clients any mobile home park in Spain that incorporates tourist camping facilities. Residents enjoy the beach when they want to and then return home.
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. For us to represent any mobile home park in Spain it has to be a dedicated residential retirement park.
A park with all the services available to help our clients retire to Spain easily and stress free. If that sounds like your park and you wish us to represent you simply contact us on +34 670203495
All parks we represent 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.
For coming to take a look whilst on holiday we have several ways to help arrange a visit including a car collection service (includes up to 4 people) from your hotel or apartment.
From Malaga, Torremolinos and Benalamadena the cost will only be £45 in total for the complete day. Fuengirola the cost will £50 and from Nerja the cost is £60. To book your day out with us please contact us.

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.
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.
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.
Pets are also welcome on the parks subject to certain rules and conditions within the parks themselves.
There are plenty of walks around the parks for dog owners and residents without pets. Breeds on the Spanish dangerous dogs list are not permitted however.

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.
