A gaggle of aspiring rappers found themselves on the wrong end of their own bank accounts after being fined twice at the multi-million-dollar waterfront mansion they'd rented for the weekend on the Gold Coast.

The palatial residence in Carrara is listed on Booking.com for $360 a night.

On the first weekend of relaxed restrictions, a group thought it would be a good idea to rent it out and throw a party.

The group from Brisbane turned the Fitzwilliam Street holiday rental into the set of a music video.

"There was gangster rap and RnB pounding out," one neighbour said.

"You could hear people screaming and shouting and having a good time, obviously."

But the law came calling.

On Friday night, seven young men were each hit with a $1300 fine for social distancing breaches.

On Saturday, 18 people in the house were hit with the same, for a grand total of $33,000 in fines.

Queensland Police Commissioner Katarina Carroll called the behaviour "completely unacceptable".
