Here are some of the Frequently Asked Questions

Why stay Manatee Villa instead of using a hotel?

Manatee Villa offers you spacious, luxurious accomodation with the flexibility of being in a home away from home for the price of a hotel room. We have guests returning year after year and are always pleased with their responses. This is a quality property at an affordable price.

Can I arrive any day and how long can I stay?

You are welcome to arrive any day and stay for as many nights as you wish. We have a minimum stay of 7 nights for Xmas and Easter periods and offer a 10% discount for stays of 21 nights or more. If you stay for less than 7 nights a cleaning charge will apply.
To check if your dates are available visit our Reservations Page.

Do we need a rental car?

Although not essential, it is highly recommended. It is far too hot to walk anywhere ! When you read 10 minutes to Disney we mean 10 minutes by car. Florida is the size of the UK and fuel is cheap compared to Europe. There are plenty of taxis available if you decide not to drive. Don't forget that US cars have smaller boots than European models.

How do we find the villa and get the keys?

2-3 weeks before arrival you will be sent key-safe , alarm codes and directions from Orlando International airport. If you need directions from Sanford, Tampa or Miami just let us know. The keys to the villa are kept outside the front door in a key-safe so there should be no issues when you arrive as you go straight to the villa.

What do we need to bring?

Just yourselves, some clothes (not too many as there are washer/dryer facilities and plenty of bargains at the malls) and your personal items - oh yes and some spending money. If you plan to travel light, all toiletries can be bought cheaply at one of the two huge Wal-Mart supermarket, which are only 5 minutes away.

Do you provide baby equipment?

We provide a highchair, pack 'n play/travel cot and stroller. We recommend you bring your own linen for the pack 'n play/travel cot if it makes you feel more comfortable.

Does the pool have a safety fence?

The pool has a safety fence which will be erected before you arrive for added safety for young children. Children should not be left unattended in the pool area at any time.

How many guests does the villa sleep?

We are licenced to sleep up to 10 guests (including infants) but we choose to sleep a maximum of 8 guests. One infant under two years old (upon date of arrival) is also permitted.This number is strictly enforced by our management company. Only guests listed on the booking form may stay overnight in the villa. If you breach this term of the rental agreement our insurance is invalidated and you will be asked to leave the premises.

What if we have a larger group or want two villas?

If you have a larger group or need two villas please let us know as we have access to other villas on Liberty Village and can arrange additional accomodation.

What entertainment do you provide? TV, music, video games etc. ?

In the Lounge we have a 42" LCD HD TV with 130+ cable channels with movies On-Demand (which means you can watch a movie as if it were on DVD with playback, pause etc.), DVD player, 3-CD music system and a Sony Playstation2. There are a selection of video and board games, DVD's movies & cartoons provided. There is also a selection of books.

What is not included in the price?

The villa is room only, so you need to get flights, car hire, travel insurance, theme park tickets and spending money. Pool heating and BBQ rental are available upon request. See our Rates Page for our latest prices.

Do we get a daily maid service?

No, the villa is thoroughly cleaned prior to your arrival and again after you depart. You are responsible for day-to-day cleanliness of the villa. If you have any questions/problems you can always contact our Management Company.

What about pets and smoking?

For the comfort of all guests, pets are not permitted in the villa. Smoking is also prohibited inside the villa. You may smoke outside the villa in the pool area, where ashtrays have been provided.

How do we make a reservation ?

Simply send an email to or call to confirm dates and latest rates.
A deposit of 200/$300 will secure a reservation with the balance due 8 weeks before arrival.

How can I pay?

If you are in US we prefer payment directly into our US bank account or accept payment by Debit/Credit card and Paypal.
We also accept payment in £'s and accept UK cheques and payment by Credit/Debit card and Paypal.
If you pay by Debit/Credit card or Paypal we add a 3% surcharge.

What if I need help or assistance whilst staying in the villa?

We have an excellent Management Company just 5 minutes away and available in case of emergencies. They are also happy to answer any questions you have about the villa and advise you in all aspects of your stay.

Where can I get cheap park and dinner show tickets?

There are many sites offering cheap tickets. If you buy them and have them delivered to the UK please don't forget to take them with you to Florida. Some companies offer to deliver tickets to your villa and they then try to sell you a whole load of extras once you've invited them in. WalMart is a good place to use as a reference for ticket pricing.
