Motoring fans heading north for the Gold Coast 600 Supercars next month can also rent the fully furnished home for four nights, which is advertised on Air Bnb for $ 5897.59 and $ 6,710 on booking.com.
Air Bnb describes the house as a "dream mansion" with incredible views of Surfers Paradise and Gold Coast Hinterlands.
Up to 12 guests can stay in the high-rise building inspired by Versace, which features high-quality bedding and towels for hotels, "delicious toiletries", a fully equipped kitchen, personalized registration and professional cleaning.
Guests can make good use of the table tennis table, the air hockey table, the massage chair, the Foxtel television channels, the pool, the barbecue, two kAyaks and will have private access to the entire house facing the sea.
If the price of $ 5897.59 is out of reach, you can rent the mansion for the same number of nights later this month (September 24-28) for $ 4,943.62 through AirBnb.

Built in 2002, Tim & # 39; Sharky & # 39; Ward bought the mansion in 2008
"With homes full of light that connect apparently to the outside, this house is perfectly suited to the relaxed and luxurious lifestyle of Gold Coast", indicates the description of Air Bnb.
Add to that your own Deep River deep water berth that can easily accommodate any large boat and all your vacation dreams can come true here.
Looking towards the Nerang River, five of the six rooms have a bathroom, one with a whirlpool bath.
Now living in Thailand, the expatriate kiwi is famous for his passion for animals
"A large contemporary-style resort home with breathtaking views of the sunset," says the mansion's speech on the McGarth Surfers Paradise website.
The McGrath Surfers Paradise website describes the 650m2 luxury mansion as a "large-scale complex style contemporary home with stunning views of the sunset & # 39; and it's a quick cruise to Broadwater Park and escapes from the island.
There are plans for a third level addition to add to the contemporary house, while a new ten meter pontoon is perfect for mooring your boat or jet ski.
Built in 2002, Ward purchased the mansion from Shane Brewer and Maria De Fatima Brewer for $ 4,325 million in 2008, The Gold Coast Bulletin reported.
Ward left his hometown of Waitara on the North Island of New Zealand in 1990 to pursue his dreams on the Gold Coast.
He was a well-known owner of a nightclub and millionaire personal moneylender who once had three Lamborghinis in different colors.
He was barred from lending funds in Queensland in the mid-2000s, and was forced to pay $ 270,000 in fines and $ 100,000 in court costs, after he was prosecuted by the Department of Fair Trade.
Ward moved to Thailand in 2009 to finally be & # 39; free & # 39; of being a constant target of the police and since then he has forged a reputation in Thailand as the 'Pattaya Shark'.
He spent the nights in the streets of Pattaya in search of abandoned children in danger and feeding dozens of stray dogs and cats.
