The OVVW is an independent, national organization for owners and managers of short-term lets. We help our members to rent out their holiday property (be it a room, an apartment, a house or a B&B) more efficiently, hassle-free and in compliance with all applicable laws.
Our aim is to offer professional support, advice and protection to our members. We also strive to be a mediator between all stakeholders in the holiday rental industry, including owners, managers, agents, suppliers, guests, neighbours, local authorities and the media.
We take compliance seriously and do our best to help our members run holiday rentals that meet local rules and regulations, as well as industry standards. We follow closely proposed laws and regulations affecting the industry, and if needed we can take action to lobby for modifications.
