Gold Coast residents; do you live next door to short term lease ‘party houses’? Do you know who will be living next to you this summer holidays? Do you feel safe in your own home?
The Strangers Next Door
It is estimated that more than 1000 luxury mansions and waterfront homes, particularly in Broadbeach Waters and Mermaid Waters, are rented out on a short-term basis to large groups of partying tourists.
Groups of revellers descend upon the Gold Coast during the holidays and Schoolies for out-of-control, alcohol-fueled parties to the detriment of the Gold Coast residents, forced to endure loud music and drunken behaviour.
Gold Coast Residents Living In Fear
The Brisbane Times reported Gold Coast residents, Graham and Loretta Clare, felt they were living a nightmare and feared for their safety due to the house next door to them being a 24 hour ‘party house’. The Clare’s house had been vandalised and they experienced regular verbal abuse.
‘We live in fear that one of these people is going to hurt us one day,’Mr Clare said.
Widow, Dawn Hogan, is another Gold Coast resident affected by living next to a short term lease party house. Ms Hogan, whom has resided in her water-front home for 20 years has had to chase naked men smoking marijuana out from the bushes on her property.
“It affects my whole life. I feel so vulnerable,” she said.
