The Kardashians hope of renting a beach home on the Sunset Islands, DiLidi Island and on North Bay Road, have been blocked by irate neighbors who don’t want the hassle of having the reality TV stars on their doorstep, it has been revealed.

The family needed signatures from immediate neighbors of the prospective homes they wanted to use for a three-month period of non-stop filming – and a support of 90 percent of homeowners within 500 feet.

However, most residents kicked up a stink – complaining that the film crews and paparazzi would prove a disruption to their normally tranquil neighborhoods.

It has meant that Kourtney, Kim and Khloe have to settle for a base nearly 14 miles away from trendy South Beach in gloomy North Miami Beach.

“They found a gated community in North Miami Beach,” a website has quoted Raul Gonzalez of Miami Beach’s Office of Film and Print as saying.

But despite their abode being in a desirable gated community, it has been revealed that the area the 51,000 square-feet property is far from safe.

On Wednesday, filming for Kourtney & Kim Take Miami got underway – with the two protagonists taking the eldest sister’s kids, Mason and Penelope to the Wizard of Oz interactive exhibit at the Miami Children’s museum.

The new season is set to premiere in January 2013.
