Parties are usually run by a "party god" and a DJ, according to "party god" StephToTrill

110 Clarendon Avenue, which sold for $9.87 million in May, and has been used as a “party mansion”

Palm Beach homeowners who leave or rent their homes for the summer are becoming more susceptible to fast-cash, high-volume ragers thrown in their homes, at their expense.

Alfred and Jan Malley’s $9.87 million home on Clarendon Avenue in Palm Beach became a party mansion in May, when the property manager invited some family members to the grounds, according to the Palm Beach Post. The get-together got out of hand when the party was advertised on social media as “Palm Beach Island Pool Banger Mansion Party — Wet and Wild Edition,” the Post reported.

Another June 9 party that took place at a home on Upland Road in West Palm Beach charged a cover of $5 for men until 10 p.m., but women got in for free. The Palm Beach Post reported that many of these parties are made possible because of vacation rental websites like HomeAway, Airbnb, and that cannot be banned outright by local government despite concerns and complaints by neighbors.

A number of arrests have been made.

“Party god” StephToTrill spoke to the Palm Beach Post, explaining that parties are usually run by a “party god” and a DJ. The party god secures the home, and both party organizers advertise the event on social media accounts. StephToTrill helped organize a party known as the “Palmghanistan” mansion party in Boynton Beach earlier this month.

The Boynton Beach property owner was in Germany when police broke up a crowd of 500 after merely 90 minutes of partying. The party organizers charged a fee for men. “I know Realtors. I know a couple people. I’m in the game for a while. We make it happen,” StephToTrill told the Post, and said, “best believe there will be another one.”

Loxahatchee resident Chloe Hall called the police on a house party in April, and told the Palm Beach Post, “The underage drinking is definitely a problem and it’s just disrespectful.” Hall also noted: “There were cars all over the street. You could smell marijuana from my house. And it was loud and it was crazy.” [Palm Beach Post]  Grace Guarnieri
