Lucy was fantastic.  The girls took to her immediately and had a great time.  We were so impressed with the detailed account of the night that Lucy left for us.  Highly recommend Lucy and Coastal Babysitters. Would most definitely use them again.

Absolutely loved everything about Coastal Babysitters! Booking in a sitter was effortless and the customer service was phenomenal. Couldn’t have made it any easier and reassuring that my children would be well looked after. Once I booked in my sitter, I received a call from her to introduce herself so I knew we were onto a great start. I loved this! Renee arrived with a whole array of toys and games and kept me updated throughout the evening how the girls were. Really made me feel more at ease and I was able to enjoy my night knowing my children were being well looked after. The girls are still asking when Renee is coming back to mind them again. I’ll definitely be calling upon her service next time we are in the Gold Coast. Couldn’t recommend Coastal Babysitters and Renee enough!!

We used Coastal Babysitters for the first time on the weekend. Nat was absolutely amazing, I felt comfortable leaving my 2 kids with her. My 5 year old was asking where she was the next morning when he woke up. We will definitely be using their service again.

It was lovely to have Theresa to look after our 3 children.
They had lots of fun, playing games, making aprons & singing songs.
With having no family here, it makes our night out so easy, being able to leave our precious children with someone we trust & equally know they are comfortable with.

Thankyou again Theresa & Coastal Babysitters xx

We used Coastal Babysitters for our recent holiday to the Gold Coast and I couldn’t have asked for any better service. Easy to book, a good price and the service was impeccable. We got sent an email about our allocated babysitter with her qualification and experience and on the morning of our booking was called to confirm and check details. We had Emily who arrived on time with a smile on her face and a bag full of games. Immediately my kids felt comfortable with her. During the night, Emily texted through a few photos which made us feel happy knowing our girls were having a fun night without us. When we arrived home the kids were in bed and the house was tidy and clean (cleaner than we left it!!). The next morning when my kids woke up they told me about their wonderful night with Emily, playing games and drawing pictures and their night in with Emily was one of the major highlights of their holiday! We are so grateful and will use Coastal Babysitters each time we holiday up on the Gold Coast. Thanks to the team for making our night so enjoyable!

I love using Coastal Babysitters to look after my son. Vanessa is so great with him. She brings activities and does an amazing job teaching and playing. Highly recommend to anyone needing a sitter.

I can not recommend Coastal Babysitters enough!

Five stars!!!!

Orly was able to book me in on a Saturday night with little notice. The sitter (Samm) rang and introduced herself before arriving, this was very comforting. She came ten minutes early and also brought a few games! Next level service.

Great service, I will definitely be using Coastal Babysitters again.

I wanted some time for myself, to catch up on some work and quiet time midweek, to feel like a human and not just a mother. It’s so hard for me to trust anyone with my kids but Coastal Babysitters provided me with an amazing loving and calm lady that my kids loved straight away! Thank you! They know exactly what we mothers think!

Coastal babysitters were an absolute breeze to deal with from the booking process right up to the wedding day. We had Theresa & Emily take care of our little bridal party and to Mum & Dad's surprise, all kids stayed with them the entire night.They knew how to make the kids comfortable and had an instant rapport with them.

Numerous activities were set up ready to go and they had every interest covered throughout the night. Check ins with the parents occurred when required and it didn't bother them that Mums (& bride) stuck their heads in every now and then. The kids did not want to leave them at the end of the night and are already asking when they can see each other again! A sure sign of trust, comfort and a good experience.

Coastal Babysitters were an excellent choice for our wedding reception. All the parents spoke very highly of the sitters and I saw the kids were well entertained. The flexible finish time was helpful and I found the price to be very reasonable for the level of service we received.

Coastal babysitters were amazing. We had the pleasure of Cassie coming to look after our 13month old whilst we had our reception for our wedding. What an absolutely lovely young lady who certainly took care of our little angel. From contacting us the day before to ensure she had the right toys to help keep him occupied to keeping us informed, whilst keeping her distance so as to not disrupt our evening. She provided updates to my sister (who would tell me what had been happening when I asked), and was so loving and caring to our little man. I would highly recommend her to anyone – and will certainly use her again (not for another wedding  ) but definitely so we can have a night out. Thank you Cassie for taking such good care of our William.

Thanks again to Maria and Coastal Babysister for looking after our 2 year whilst we enjoyed a family wedding. Maria made us feel very comfortable to leave our son in her care. From the booking to the night of, all aspects were handled really professionally which we appreciated as this was the first time my wife and I had left our child in the care of someone that was not a family member.

We were super nervous about leaving our little Man for the first time but our nerves were quickly settled when we met Britt. She was so caring and fun Lucas just loves her so much so we booked her again the following week! Lucas keeps asking when he will see her again. We loved the written update and came home to our dishes done what more could you want 😆Thanks coastal babysitter for helping us we can’t wait to use your services again 😊

We booked our first babysitter through Coastal Babysitters last week so we could attend a family dinner kid-free. The booking process was easy and seamless. We were matched with Merryl, and she was amazing! She phoned me the day prior to ask about my kids' routines, and what activities they liked doing. She arrived on time, had brought activities suited to their interests, and immediately got stuck into helping us get them ready for bed. Throughout the night we got updates as to how they were doing, and a handover sheet when we got home. My son had a ball with her, and asked us to go out again the next night so she could come back! I would highly recommend - it gave us peace of mind to be out without the kids, and they were well looked after and had fun!

This is the most professional babysitting service I have ever used. The whole experience was such high quality- from the website, to the confirmation, to the babysitter herself and the reporting and updates post baby sitting. We couldn’t have felt safer or happier entrusting our toddler to their care, and he had a great time as well. Could not recommend the service more highly.

Jeanine Bribosia

Booking was really easy, fair pricing and the care was excellent. We booked a babysitter for a morning to look after our 2 girls, 3 1/2 and 22 months old when we stayed in Byron for a holiday. She entertained the girls with games and toys she brought and the girls loved it! Will definitely use again and highly recommend to anyone looking for a babysitter while in the Byron Bay Area!

We had a fantastic experience with Coastal Babysitters during our recent trip to Byron.  Our sitter Grace was so calm, caring and intuitive.  All three of my children loved spending time with her and our baby thrived in her care.  Thank you so much, I highly recommend Grace and Orly.  Extremely professional and prompt in responding.

Orly and her team At Coastal Babysitters are second to none. I have been working with Orly and her team for the last 2 years providing babysitting and care for my son and I can say that this business is the most professional, reliable service I have encountered relating to my son.

Firstly, I stumbled across Orly by chance, I live in Brisbane and we were staying on the Gold Coast; our babysitter fell through so I googled babysitters/nannies. Coastal Babysitters appeared on my search, I immediately called the number and I heard Orly’s voice, I told her my predicament and her response was, I am 100% sure I can have a nanny for you in the next 30 minutes. I was shocked. Low and behold, our lovely, fully qualified, police checked babysitter arrived in a gorgeous uniform with a bundle of toys for my son. It was seamless, and my son had a ball. We are in the technology industry, and it was incredible to find out that Orly had put together an App to manage her wonderful babysitters/nannies.

We have used professional babysitter/nanny services throughout every state in Australia and both the North and South Islands of New Zealand and Coastal Babysitters surpasses all.

Highly recommend if you are after the best care for your child and the most professional woman behind the wheel of the business.

Coastal babysitters was recommended to me by a friend & it has been a lifesaver!! Orly is extremely helpful & we were paired with the lovely Lucy who my daughter absolutely adores. My husband & I are finally able to enjoy date nights without any worries!

We had Catherine watch our 3yr old while we went to dinner and drinks. She was FANTASTIC. Our son adored her and she even brought him little presents and a book on dinosaurs (she phoned ahead to ask his interests and to get to know me, which was so reassuring). I cannot recommend her enough! We were so so happy with her communication of texting me photos during the evening of our little terror having a blast. Thank you so much Catherine! We will absolutely be requesting her again and will aim for date nights every 2 months 🙂

Thank you again!

We had Barbara come and look after our 8 month old and he was actually in a better mood when we got back than he usually is at his regular witching hour. Very professional service that calls the day before and makes sure everything is set to go. Very quick to respond to requests also.

Tim Dick

I couldn’t recommend coastal babysitters highly enough. I run a child health company where I run courses and there are often lots of babies, in order to have an extra set of hands I use this service and couldn’t be happier. The service is second to none and the quality of the sitters provided has been beyond any expectation. Thank you Orly and team for providing such a valuable service- anyone utilising the service is very lucky to have you.

Orly and her team of babysitters are wonderful. Incredibly helpful, always on time, professional and most importantly - kind, responsive and fun with my daughter. Have already recommended them to all my mum friends!

First time using a babysitter and they were very professional, responsive and good value.  Haylee was a wonderful carer for my child (3yo).  He adjusted so easily and had a fun time.  The house was also tidy when I returned (big thanks!).  He woke up asking if he could play with Haylee again.  Strongly recommend this business and will be using them again.

Dani is absolutely great with our kids. Not to mention she goes above and beyond whenever she looks after them. This is a great testament to the care Orly takes in selecting only the very best people to look after our little treasures.
