Can you maintain a relationship living separately due to stepchildren

So we've been trying this blended fam thing and it's not working. His 6 year old twin girls physically and verbally attack my 3 yr old and have at times attacked DH and myself. 

He now has even more custody. Every school holidays. His place is only 3 bedroom and during the holidays we have 8 kids. We have 2 with us permanently. Both mine 16 girl and 3 yr girl. Never any dramas. 

When my bio kids come when his kids aren't here we have no drama. 

Struggling with 6yr old twin stepdaughter

Hi guys

1st time poster.

Quick run down.  I have 6 Bio. Ages 27 down to 3. 

Partner has 4 children 12, 9, and twin 6 yrs.

I get on fabulous with the boys 12 and 9. Have small moments with 1 twin but generally ok. The other twin.  Not at all.

I have 2 rules.  We don't yell in our house and we share.  She can't do either. I've tried rewarding not yelling and in yelling I mean blood curdkung screaming at siblings and parents. She's constantly telling me how much she hates me and my 3yr old bio.
