Here are just a few tips you may find helpful on your travels to the villa.

Water
The water in the USA is safe to drink (but tastes a little different from the water in the UK)
Currency
The currency is the US Dollar. Visa, Mastercard and American Express are taken in many places. US Dollar travellers checks can also be used and are taken in many stores and restaurants.
Driving
Remember to drive on the right side of the road. There are a number of toll roads where you have to pay a small amount of money at each 'Toll Plaza'. Some hire car companies subscribe to the "fast pass" scheme which keeps a track of which tolls you pass through and then they will charge your credit card at the end of your trip. If your hire car company does do this then it is much more speedy and convenient, avoiding you having to find change after a long flight.
Visas
If you are not a US citizen then you will need a visa or apply for a visa waiver under the ESTA scheme. Visit the ESTA Website for further information.
What do I need to bring?
Bring all the things you would normally take to a hotel: clothes, deodrants, suncream etc - clean linen and towels are provided in the villa. You might like to bring your own beach towels for the beach and the water parks.
Weather
Florida is pretty much warm and sunny all year round (that's why its called the sunshine state), but it can get chilly in the evenings.
Temperatures
In the USA the unit of measure for temperature is fahrenheit. Please find below a conversion between celius and fahrenheit:
