What is Monkey vs Owl?

The Letting Experts

We started Monkey vs Owl (#MOVO) with a dream of making the lives of Landlords & Students (in particular) less painful and more fun. However, we’ve now realised that the scope for what we created is much more expansive. Be it at the workplace, at home, or even in the gym, there will always be a battle between having fun and working hard. 

At Monkey vs Owl we believe that letting process doesn’t have to be so dull and mundane— everyone can leave happy, both Tenants & Landlords. We’re not just an agency, we’re your local guide helping you settle into your new city (or to learn more about your existing one). 

"Less headaches more results"

We get the challenges of being a Landlord, so at Monkey vs Owl our prime objectives are quite simple really; to keep you happy and paid. We're also aware having a fast response team is vital to the upkeep of your property, so we make it as easy for tenants to take care of your property with our "report a repair" portals and 24hr in-house maintenance team. We also offer fully bespoke options allowing you to create the Property Management package that truly suits your needs.

"The Cheeky Monkey"


Likes to have fun, make friends and wants to make the most of life. Not impartial to the "occasional" party.

Everyone has two sides

There is a duality to life with the constant battle between two key behavioural motivators— we call them the "Cheeky" Monkey and the "Wise" Owl. They illustrate the balancing act that we encounter to make the most of all life has to offer; there's a time for work, and a time for play.

Expect to see more of both the Monkey and Owl on your journey around our website, giving you key insights into the various social and academic activities happening in your chosen city.

"The Wise Owl"


Focused on work and being the best version of themselves. Has an eye on the future. Self-development is a primary concern.
