Want to golf or have a nice dinner out? We send qualified, mature sitters to your rental home to have fun with your precious little ones. We constantly receive compliments on our sitters who fully enjoy their job. We realize your children are on vacation too - we make it a fun experience for them while you are away.
The cost for 1 or 2 children is $18 per hour, 3 hour minimum, plus a travel fee listed below and gratuities (gratuities usually run 10-15%). Each additional child is $2 per child per hour. In case there are many smaller children who need more attention, 2 sitters may be required. We can babysit day or night, in the 3 hour increments or longer. We are insured and bonded and members of the Chamber of Commerce.
Our sitters consist of the locals, which have been employed with At Your Service for a long time, and the college students during the summer months, many who come back year after year, then bring their friends who also babysit. Every reference is carefully checked, and the sitters have to receive a "glowing" recommendation. Once you meet our sitters you will feel comfortable leaving them with the responsibility of your children.
We prefer that you to pay the sitter cash at the end of the sit, (she will present an invoice) and to guarantee the sit we require a credit card number. The only charge ever put on the credit card would be the cancellation fee, which is $25 per sitter. The cancellation fee is waived as long as we have 48 hour notice. The cancellation fee is in effect because we have a waiting list, and the sitters can usually be directed elsewhere for the time allotted if notified in a timely manner.
Let us know if any child has any special needs, allergies, etc.
The children are not allowed in the pool or in the ocean, and we cannot bathe them. In other words, "no water".
We do have "mother's helpers", a situation in which the mother and/or father is present and the sitter "helps". The charge is $20 per hour plus travel and gratuities. She can watch the kids in the house (nap time, etc) while the parents are on the beach, can make a simple lunch, can help watch the kids in the pool, etc.
