Just wanted to give you some feedback from the weekend, my boys had a wonderful time with Katie she was very competent at wrangling my 11month old and super active 2 year old, I have to say I had a lot of anxiety about leaving the kids but she walked through the door with a big box of toys and the kids just gravitated towards her, they went for walks and played outside, did some craft and she was particularly patient with my fussy eaters trying lots of options which really put my mind at ease, throughout the afternoon/night she sent me text messages and photos of the kids and had them both asleep by 7.30pm…what a gem. Thankyou Katie and Sapphire Coast Nannies for matching us with a wonderful carer. Kind regards, Kylie C 02/04/16

Just writing a quick note to let you know that we were so impressed with the nanny,Klara, you provided us for two nights in Mollymook. She went above and beyond and was so amazing with the kids. They still can’t stop raving about her. She was prompt, professional, friendly, warm, generous, adventurous, and the perfect person to watch our kids!! Thanks so much again,

Thank you very much for arranging Julie to look after our boys. She was very professional and we felt very at ease leaving our boys in her care. We will have no hesitation in using your service when we are next down your way.

Anna was FANTASTIC! She and my daughter connected immediately. Anna had a loving and kind nature and I had no problems at all leaving her in charge of my most prized possession. My daughter was smiling and happy when I left, and smiling and happy when I came home – especially good as she was un-well and this was the first time she had been cared for by someone she had not meet previously. I was very, very impressed and would definitely use the Sapphire Coast Nannies and Anna again!

This was my first time using the Sapphire Coast Nannies.
I can’t believe how easy it was to book and we were staying in a motel in Huskisson for a friend’s Wedding. Jessica was great, really friendly and this made leaving our 6yr old with her a lot easier!
I would highly recommend her to anyone else using this service!!! And hopefully when we go back to Husky she will be available!
Thank-you !

Thank you so much for looking after Nathan (13 weeks) and Lily (almost 2). We were up from Sydney and staying in Culburra Beach attending a wedding over the weekend at Terrara House Estate. I was very hesitant at leaving my children, especially Nathan so young, with a nanny so far from home yet your communication with me over the phone in advance completely reassured me. As soon as I met Sapphire Coast Nannies Wedding Nannies, I knew my children would feel at ease and have fun with them.
Their caring nature and love towards children was evident when they arrived with a box full of toys and itinerary to fill the rest of their day. I don’t think they even noticed mummy and daddy had left them in a strange house with 2 people that we didn’t know. They were certainly both in great moods the following day. Thank you once again and feel reassured that your carers are more than capable to look after a newborn and toddler any day.
Thank you so much once again for looking after them both, if we come down to the South Coast again, I would gladly love to use your services and gladly recommend you.

We used the services of Sapphire Coast Nannies to mind my five year old son for the night while we attended a wedding in Berry. I did feel anxious at first at the thought of leaving my son in the care of someone I didn’t know, but in the lead-up to the night, Melinda was incredibly reassuring and professional in organising the right carer for my son and I felt that Melinda put a lot of my initial concerns to rest. On the night, a wonderful lady named Carys minded my son and she was brilliant.
Carys brought books, craft, movies and balloons along with her and my son was thrilled. She also very cleverly helped my son create a Lego masterpiece! If this is any indication, the following day my son asked: “When will I be seeing Carys again?”
Thank you both Melinda and Carys – you were both fantastic

I want to thank you so much for all your help in finding a suitable nanny for our family. You are always so lovely to deal with and professional. We are so happy with our nanny and our children just adore her. The minute she walked in the door, a total sense of calm entered our home.

Thank you again and I can’t recommend you highly enough.”

We had our Wedding at Coolangatta Estate and needed a Babysitter to look after our children during the day and overnight. We wanted our children to have a great day, just as much as we did.
It was reassuring to know that we had a friendly and professional person watching over our children while we enjoyed the festivities and the children had so much fun. Thank you Sapphire Coast Nannies for arranging this for us it made our day even more special!

We had a 15 year old looking after our children but never again now that we use Sapphire Coast Nannies we know the standard that they have to select their Babysitters.

We know that in any situation that occurs we do not have to worry because the Nannies and Babysitters knows how to deal with all situations in a experienced and mature manner.

Well worth it!

I’m not often compelled to send feedback because having worked in the service industry, I just expect good service! But…you guys were/are brilliant. Super efficient, friendly and provided total assurance in what could potentially be “uncertain” territory for parents.

Everything you said would happen did. Fiona herself was just a treasure. The kids loved her so much they wanted us to go out and for her to come back again the next night!

Holly & David - Berry — Randwick

I just wanted to let you know how happy we were with Ashley. She was a great nanny and the kids (who are going through i hate nannies stage) loved her! If only she worked in Sydney I would use her all the time. Regards Charlotte

Dear Melinda,

I can’t thank you enough for the level of service you and Melinda provided to us last weekend.

I was so nervous having never left our children before, but you put my mind totally at rest.

My sister in law and I returned to the wedding reception at Bendooley Estate, and enjoyed ourselves, knowing that the two ladies taking care of our six kids aged 2 to 7, were very well qualified, calm, friendly and professional. You knew what to do to make the kids feel at ease, and I think they barely noticed when we left, as they were already getting stuck into the activities and the colouring in that you bought along with you.

The text message during the evening to say that they were all asleep in bed made it even easier to relax.

To return to a peaceful, quiet and very clean house with the kids all fed and tucked up in bed was a real pleasure.

I would have no hesitation in booking with Southern Highland Nannies in the future.

Thank you again so much

Best Regards

Thank you for arranging Evelina as our Babysitter for Lilian last night. Evelina was lovely and Lilian had a great time with her. She woke this morning asking when Evelina can come again to look after her.
We had a fantastic night out seeing James Morrison at Centro CBD. It was all made more relaxing by knowing Lilian was being well looked after by such a lovely lady.

Now we need to find another excuse for a night out!

Kind regards Sue

Morning Melinda,

I (and the mums) just want to say the biggest ever thank you to you and your wonderful ladies who took care of the children at Sarah and Hendrik’s wedding at Terrara House Estate.
You are truly delightful (so pleased i was able to meet you in person and put a name and face together) and the support you gave the mums that day and night was far and above anything we could have imagined.
Sapphire Coast Nannies is just so professional and caring and the years of experience you all have brings such a air of confidence to parents when they hand over the responsibility of their children to you.
The Mums involved have not stopped talking about you all and the service you provided for them that enabled them to thoroughly enjoy the wedding knowing their “precious little ones” were being so beautifully cared for.
Just wish you were closer to Sydney so we could engage your services here.

Once again the biggest thank you to you all.

Kind regards Sue

I just wanted to thank your babysitters Christine so much for the wonderful care she gave our children last Saturday and Sunday evenings. The kids warmed to her straight away and she kept them entertained and put them to sleep without any problems. A true professional! It made going to the wedding so relaxing knowing they were in great hands. You were amazing!!! Many thanks from Shannon, Eddie, Benjamin and Amelia.

Shannon - Bowral — Southern Highlands

I couldn’t write feedback on the night but wanted to advise that your Babysitter Christine was fabulous. We were very happy with everything Christine did. The kids had fun and made some fabulous mother’s day cards. Everything was tidied up when I got back to 2 soundly sleeping children. Christine had everything under control and we have a lovely evening knowing that the kids were being well looked after.

Many thanks

Hi Melinda,
I am sorry I haven’t been in touch sooner but I just wanted to say a big thank you for organising the two lovely ladies that looked after our little girl, Zali and her cousins at Terrara House Estate  on Friday 24th for the Rosen/McCann wedding. We were so impressed with the service and Zali had a lovely time. We enjoyed ourselves at the wedding knowing she was in such good hands.
Thank you to both Zoe and Sheree who looked after them all so well. I would have no hesitation in recommending your service to others.
Thanks again,

Rebecca - Terrara House Estate — Shoalhaven

Hi Melinda
Wow, what amazing people you have working for you. Annette and Katie were fabulous with all our kids on Saturday and the logistics of the wedding we had to attend. Their fabulousness meant all the adults could enjoy wedding ceremony without being pulled away by kids that were getting bored. Once the kids were sent home we hear they had a great time and were all in bed easily.

I’ll be sure to recommend you agency and will use it again when we travel south.

Many thanks Anna

Hi There,

Thanks for the email below.

I just wanted to let you know that Rachel was so fabulous! Our little boy loved her, and he didn’t even cry when we left (which was such a surprise). He told me all about her in the morning.

It was refreshing to see him so happy when we left.

Thought I’d let you know. We will definitely be requesting Rachel again in the future.


Rachel - Wollongong — Canberra

Hi Melinda,

I just wanted to thank you for all your assistance in the lead up to our event yesterday.

My children had never been left with someone they didn’t know before but Annette your Babysitter put me right at ease as soon as she arrived, reassuring me with her wealth of knowledge and experience. She came well prepared with plenty toys and my two year old and 7 month old settled immediately. She sent updates with photos throughout the afternoon of all the fun they were having, which gave me such peace of mind knowing I didn’t have to worry. I was definitely a nervous mum leaving my two kids for the first time but I wouldn’t hesitate in using your Babysitting services again and recommending you to anyone who asks. Thank you again!

Kind regards, Katy Andrews

Hi Richelle,

Thanks for your email.

It reminded me that I wanted to send a note to say how impressed we were with Alyce.

She was so lovely, a great communicator, on time, the kids thought she was lots of fun, she expertly sorted out a near crisis with my daughters teddy being locked in another hotel room and she even did the dishes from the kids dinner (definitely not expected!).

We look forward to using your service again – and hopefully seeing the lovely Alyce again.

Best regards, Lys Blanchett
