The Goonies house is causing trouble for the neighbors again, just two months after a new owner bought the iconic Walsh home.
Footers may say never die, but their neighbors say, “GOONIES NOT WELCOME.” That’s what a banner outside a house in the same neighborhood as the famous one Tumbling the house reads.

The Zakeri seem to remain civil, but a neighborhood feud seems to be brewing around them Tumbling House. The home between Zakeri and the neighborhood has now hung a sign that reads: “IGNORE KAREN”with an arrow pointing towards the relevant residence.
Zakeri has tried to keep things civil, inviting Tumbling fans to be respectful when visiting the house. “Let’s not go into the neighbors’ yard. Let’s not mess with their stuff…If they want to come and take selfies, if they want to geocache or whatever and say, ‘I was Tumbling house,’ and make the truffle mixture, then proceed. Just be respectful, like everything else.”
The new owner of Tumbling house previously mentioned, “The reason I’m buying it is for the community. . . . Someone has to be a caretaker, someone has to preserve landmarks. Someone has to keep it original and not be demonstrated.” Come on, that’s almost a line out of the movie! He also said that explicitly “Goonies are welcome.”
