Hi. I’m Robyn, a mature aged lady who finds it rewarding caring for babies, kids and teenagers. I am more than happy to be your second set of arms and adhere to your family rules while you’re out and about. I have vast experience from settling 14 week old twins with reflux who were premie, calming little toddlers using different techniques and making older kids laugh through games and chatting. I have a calm disposition and safety is my first concern. I have teaching knowledge so am privy to reading children’s expressions and actions. I provide updates via sms to parents who find this reassuring; therefore relax and fully enjoy their outing.

Arielle

My name is Arielle and I’m 24 years old. I absolutely adore children and have ever since I was a little girl myself! I’m very maternal so I’ve been babysitting for as long as I can remember, and as a part-time job for the past 4 years. I’m very comfortable with children of any age and ability. I’ve worked in special schools as a teachers aide and care for a few children with Autism & Down Syndrome. I have a very warm, fun, friendly and accepting nature. I also have a big love for music & dance. I do Latin dancing- mainly Cuban Salsa, Bachata & Samba, and run a children’s Latin/Afro dance class once a week which is open to kids with any ability and experience. I am a big believer in the power & importance of mental health, and so I’m currently studying a Cert IV in Mental Health. I’ve volunteered for Radio Lollipop and currently volunteer for Paradise Kids. I tend to put pretty long last smiles on little kids faces, and it’s probably because it puts such a huge one on mine too! If I look after your kids you can feel at ease that they’re in safe, capable hands that don’t mind a little dance break, music, bubbles, and a whole lot of laughter into their day.

TESTIMONIALS

Claire Turnball - Gold Coast

What a fantastic night my kids had with their babysitter Jordan. She brought activities and games with her as we were holidaying on the Gold Coast. They made balcony forts, did awesome Halloween make-up and gave them such a great night.

The owner, Orly, was fast at responding to emails and so lovely to deal with.

I highly recommend Coastal Babysitters, such a great service and I will definitely be using you next time we need a Babysitter on the Gold Coast.

Thank you so much for allowing us to enjoy our night without any worries.

Jaymee Wiseman - Gold Coast

We had a fantastic experience dealing with Coastal Babysitters to book a sitter to look after our twins due to a family wedding on the Gold Coast. Orly was friendly and reassuring during the booking process. We then had Bel look after our twins ( 2 yrs 7 months). It was the first time we had someone other than family look after our children. They are not very good with strangers and so we were expecting tears. Not a tear in sight, they loved Bel. She was both professional and personable, a real life Mary Poppins! Would not hesitate to use again if we are ever on the Gold coast. A big thank you for going the extra mile to make us feel comfortable and confident to leave our two. Highly recommend!

Jenny McKay

 

Thank you so much for your outstanding service Coastal Babysitters!

We visited Byron Bay for a wedding and needed babysitters to look after 9 children from the ages of 22months to 10 years old. Giulia and Yemaya were brilliant with our big group of kids, they all had so much fun with the activities they brought with them. We felt very relaxed and confident knowing they were in good hands. If you are looking for a babysitter in Byron Bay, I would only recommend Coastal Babysitters to look after your children

Margarette Maheir - Gold Coast

First time leaving my 2yr old boy with anyone other than family and I was nervous to leave him but Coastal Babysitters made me feel confident and well reassured. Lovely Katie came around to our Byron Bay apartment and was straight onto it quick smart. The apartment was even cleaner than I left it. Every mums dream! Katie, our babysitter manager to get him to sleep with no problem... I can't even do that! Honestly, too many nice things to say and have already booked again.

I love that they provide their service in Byron Bay, the Gold Coast and Brisbane as we are doing a trip up the coast and feel comfortable using the same company for all destinations.

Thank you Coastal Babysitters for your great service!
