Why Monkey vs Owl?

The Letting Experts

Monkey vs Owl was born to give you a new, pain-free way of finding your perfect property. We also connect you with attractions in your new city, helping to improve the quality of your daily life.


No Hidden Fees

We won't take your money for no reason.

That's right no hidden fees! We understand that University life costs you enough so we don't want to add to those financial pressures. All we charge is £25 to cover the costs of the reference check when you sign up, and that's it no hidden charges.


We make letting fun

Boring, boring, boring.

We've realised that the letting sector is really, really boring. We've also realised that it doesn't have to be like that! Whether it's signing for your new house while sipping a cocktail in your favourite bar, or going through our tenant on-boarding process using our app, Monkey vs Owl have challenged ourselves to make every step of the process as pain free and fun as possible.


Digitally Savvy

We fit into your 24hr lifestyle.

We know that due to the excessively 'busy' life of a student, you might not always be able to call us in office hours... That's why we have a MOVO App to help you manage your property, report repairs, flag up any issues and simply send us a message, anytime you want. The app will update you with notifications once we reply so you don't have to keep checking back, and even inform your house mates so you're all in the loop. No more trawling through emails; ain't nobody got time for that. 


We save you time

... and time is precious!

With the ability to view the key rooms of the properties at 360° means that you'll have a good idea of whether or not you want the property, without having to go for a viewing. So why not make a night of it; get your (potential) roommates round, order a takeaway, head to monkeyvsowl.com and get it done!


Connecting you with your city

We're your guide.

As it's often their first opportunity to "leave the nest", most students will attend University in a city that they are not from. We have taken it upon ourselves to be your local guide and introduce you to all the hidden treats your new City has to offer. Our MOVO Guide is an interactive map showing you the best cafes, bars, shops, near your properties helping you to get to know your new city.


Discounts, offers, events... and discounts

Special MOVO Discounts throughout the city

To save you a job - and money - we've connected with the best student-friendly businesses in each city to provide you with a comprehensive lists of discounts and offers. So rather than searching all their websites, you can now just go to the MOVO Partners page and not only see where you get the discounts, but how much and how to redeem them. We even give you directions. We also hold extravagant events especially for students, such as our recent PARTY with the cast of Made in Chelsea. Not bad.
