Aussie TV presenter Sophie Monk has put her Gold Coast waterfront home up for rent for $1,200 per week.
The Beauty and the Geek Australia host is offering a 12-month lease for her five-bedroom, three-bathroom home on a sprawling 4018sq m block at Helensvale.
Leasing agent Brent Martens, of Harcourts Coastal, said the rent had not been increased from last year, despite big rent hikes across the Gold Coast as the city’s rental squeeze tightened.
“The owner is more interested in getting good tenants in the property,” he said.
But with ten groups through the home on the first inspection and an application currently being processed, it was not expected to last.
“The rental market is very busy everywhere at the moment, with a lot of tenants both local and interstate looking to rent on the Gold Coast,” Mr Martens said.
He said the Helensvale home on such a large block on the water was a rare find.
“It feels as though you are living in a peaceful country estate but it’s still really close to everything you need with shops and good schools in the area so it’s an ideal family home,” Mr Martens said.
The renovated house has direct ocean access with a boat ramp, jetty and storage area; as well as a pool and outdoor entertaining area.
Inside is air-conditioned, with spacious living areas, a stylish kitchen, and feature staircase.
Monk was born in the UK but lived on the Gold Coast from age 2, attending Helensvale Primary School.
She first rose to stardom as a member of Aussie girl band Bardot and has since enjoyed a prominent career both in Australia and the US.
The 41-year-old, known for her glamorous blonde looks and down-to-earth humour, was the winner of Celebrity Apprentice Australia in 2015. More recently, she has starred in The Bachelor and hosted Love Island.
Property records show Monk purchased the home for $1.1m in 2016.
