Officers attended the property at Carrara on Friday night, issuing seven men with $1334 fines.
They were called out again in the early hours on Sunday morning, where they issued another 18 fines.
Five of those fined on Sunday had already been fined on Friday.
Police say the majority of those people were visiting the Gold Coast from Brisbane.
Another house party in Brisbane saw a total of ten people fined in one hit.
Commissioner Katarina Carroll says these were blatant breaches of the Chief Health Officer’s directions.
“Disappointingly, those people are really not doing the right thing but in essence most people are trying to be compliant this weekend,” Commissioner Carroll said.
It comes as Police were forced to move on hundreds of people from Burleigh Hill on Sunday afternoon.
Huge crowds gathered ahead of sunset with many breaching social distancing rules.
No fines were issued however extra Police will be deployed to the area to avoid a repeat on Monday.
