Housekeeping for the Villa's

Ive heard when you stay in the villa's you only get a cleaning after a few days, how many days is it that you have to stay? We are staying 7days/6nights. If we wanted to have housekeeping come in between those days does anyone know the fee? Also what about extra towels & blankets is there a fee for that?
Thanks

if you stay in the villas booking directly with disney, you get housekeeping like at a hotel.

if you stay on points, it's like a timeshare - a "home away from home" concept. (note that you will not get a free full cleaning at all on your stay.)

not sure if extra blankets are an option, you may want to bring your own.

From the DVC website:

I have never been charged for extra blankets when staying on points.

An extra towel package is charged as noted above.

Might be a silly question but how many towels are standard in the room? Just wondering if we would have enough or need a extra set. We have 3 adults & 2 kids.

The number of towel sets depends on the maximum occupancy of the villa. If it's a two-bedroom villa that sleeps 8, for example, you'll get 8 sets. If it's a one bedroom that sleeps 5, you'll get 5 sets.
