About Us

As a loving mother of two beautiful little girls, I understand just how busy life can be.

I created Coastal Babysitters in 2016 to provide Brisbane, Gold Coast and Byron Bay families and visitors to the area with a reliable, trustworthy babysitting service that enabled parents to feel comfortable accessing an established and convenient service that allowed them the luxury of time to themselves.


As the Director of Coastal Babysitters I take pride in personally hand-selecting and getting to know the Brisbane babysitters, Gold Coast babysitters and Byron Bay babysitters on our books to ensure Coastal Babysitters provides a service that is not only reliable and safe but loving too.

Customer Relations and Bookings Coordinator

Hi, I’m Koren, I’m a mum to 2 beautiful boys and have lived on the Gold Coast for the last 7 years.

I know how important it is that your kids are safe and happy with someone you can trust. I also know the importance of having time to yourself, without the kids!

When I’m not working, I like to keep fit and active and spend time with my family.

If you make a booking, chances are you’ll be speaking with me.

Our Gold Coast babysitters, Brisbane babysitters and Byron Bay babysitters are the best in the business, providing experienced, professional care when you need it most.

Our carers are either mum’s themselves or have worked in childcare for at least three years and each sitter has undergoing Blue Card and Working With Children checks and obtained their First Aid and CPR certificate. Read about our trusted Brisbane babysitters, Gold Coast babysitters and Byron Bay babysitters along with testimonials from our many happy parents.

"I have 2 little girls myself and I would only ever send someone to your family that I would trust with my own children."

— Orly Muscat, Founder and owner of Coastal Babysitters
