Lisa R .       January 2023

This was our first experience hiring a babysitter for our 2.5 year old boy and his 3 year old best mate and Liz was amazing! She stayed over night and let us know when they were both sound asleep so that we could all enjoy our night! Definitely recommend ❤️

Jackie R .       November 2022

Liz is a lovely person, my 2 yo son enjoyed spending time with her. Looks he had a lot of fun!

Michelle H .       November 2022

Liz was absolutely amazing! I have a 10 month old, an eight year old and a 10 year old and Liz ensured everyone was very well looked after and that everyone had a great time!!🙂 I would highly recommend Liz!👍🙌🙌💕

Nicola F .       October 2022

Great sitter! Would book again. Thanks Liz

Catherine J .       September 2022

Amanda M .       September 2022

Liz was like Mary Poppins. She came in and was very relaxed and reassuring. She chatted with the kids, and then asked about the kids routine. When we got home she gave us a quick brief and left! It was our kids’ first time with a babysitter, and they said they liked her and wanted her again the next night. We have three kids aged 4,3, and 2. So it’s not an easy challenge. She seemed to manage though! Thumbs up.

Greer B .       September 2022

Liz had the boys tucked up in bed easily and let us know what was going on so we could focus on our night out

Tim C .       September 2022

Liz was great with our 9 month old! Thank you Liz 😃

Sophie J .       September 2022

Liz was amazing - we were only in QLD for the weekend and the girls (5) & (2) settled with her straight away. Would recommend Liz and would love to use her when we are next in town.

Bianca S .       August 2022

This was our first time using a babysitter in 4 years of having kids and we were so comforted and put at ease with Liz's thorough professionalism from first contact , in all communication leading up to the date and on the day of babysitting my 2 kids.
Liz is an excellent communicator both with parents and their children and made sure everyone was comfortable with her when she first arrived.
Liz arrived about 10mins early and took initiative straight away when arriving and my 1 year old already due for his nap and didn't hesitate taking over from me and changing him and putting him down for his nap whilst I was talking through notes for her.
Liz didn't wait to be told anything- she knew the right questions to ask up front and asked specific questions to ensure that safety considerations were being addressed.
A nice touch was Liz sending text and picture updates which were very reassuring and appreciated.
We are so grateful Liz was our first experience using a babysitter and we would not hesitate to use her services again and to also recommend her.

Hannah G .       August 2022

Liz was fantastic, would very happily book again!

Aisling B .       July 2022

Rebecca B .       July 2022

Liz was fantastic with my 2 children - almost 4 and 18 months. She immediately put me at ease and took charge of the children. Am looking forward to working with Liz again.

Naomi T .       April 2022

From the first moment we met Liz we were instantly at ease. The kids loved her and took to her immediately due to her calming presence and kind nature. We were updated throughout the night and reassured the kids were fine, it made our first babysitting experience an absolute breeze. We can’t recommend Liz enough

Tracey R .       March 2022

liz was lovely 🥰 she made you feel very comfortable and sent photos when she got our 11 month old to sleep which made me feel at ease to enjoy our night. thank you liz

Jennifer S .       March 2022

Terrific. Calmed the children while we left. Gave them her full attention all day. Left notes for me. Had everything ready for when we got home that night eg bathed and in pjs. Liz felt like leaving the kids in the safest pair of hands. I couldn't recommend her more highly.

James F .       April 2022

Liz was wonderful with our energetic 2.5 year old. He felt very comfortable with her as soon as she came in and gave her a big cuddle. Liz kept him engaged and played games. We felt at ease leaving Liz with our son. Thank you so much Liz!

Kim T .       February 2022

Liz was great. The kids loved her and she kept me updated throughout the evening. We were traveling for a wedding and she did quite a long shift and was willing to stay late into the night.

Carly K .       January 2022

My boys had a wonderful afternoon with Liz! Highly recommend!!

Martin C .       December 2021

Liz is a very competent trustworthy sitter and she was great with our kids. Would definitely recommend.

Stephanie C .       December 2021

Really lovely - felt very easy leaving my 3 young children in her care

Alison B .       December 2021

Liz was an absolute winner with our daughter. This was her first time being looked after by someone other than family and Liz had it handled as soon as she wakes through the door. I was worried about troubles going to sleep but if anything, our daughter went to bed earlier than she does with us. We loved Liz and would hire her again in a flash. Thank you sooo much.

Anneliese K .       September 2021

Chelsea M .       August 2021

Liz was absolutely lovely. Voted best babysitter by our boys. She was engaging, confident and everything you could want in a sitter.

Daniel L .       July 2021

This was our first time leaving our 5 month old son, Liz made everything so easy and made us feel very comfortable. I would definitely recommend her to anybody looking for a baby sitter.

Kate C .       June 2021

Liz was lovely and was reassuring that she could handle my boys if they woke up. She reminded me so much of my mum, gentle, kind and friendly! I would recommend Liz and would book her again if the opportunity arose.

Michelle S .       June 2021

Highly recommended Liz, she was amazing! Came to my hotel and babysat my 3 kids (22mths, 4yo & 8yo) the kids loved and and I felt very comfortable leaving them with her. Liz kept them occupied and had no problems getting them to sleep. Thank you Liz! :)

Alicia E .       May 2021

Thanks Liz for helping out while on holidays so babysat in hotel room and also minded our 10yo cousin at the last minute when plans fell through.

Joel G .       May 2021

Kids had a great time, thanks Liz

Tammy W .       May 2021

Liz was AMAZING!
She was professional and friendly from the moment we started to talk. Liz turned up a little early so that we could go through a couple of things for the night. My son warmed to Liz almost immediately and this made it that much easier leaving him for the first time since having him. I will definitely be booking Liz again in the future. I would recommend her to anyone that asks for advice in the future.

Belinda J .       April 2021

Liz promptly replied to a post for a job I put up on Sittr. Being cautious as I am, I found it was great to be able to look through past reviews and Liz’s reviews couldn’t be faulted. The kids really enjoyed their time with Liz and I wouldn’t hesitate in asking her again if she was available 😊. I really appreciated that she drove out to our rural property as it had been quite tricky to find someone willing to come out to our place in the past.

Sarah B .       April 2021

Liz was wonderful with our two boys. Would definitely book again.

Ash M .       April 2021

No hesitation using Liz again. From the moment she walked in the door we felt comfortable and she had an immediate bond with our daughter. Clearly she has had allot of experience and loves what she does.

Samantha H .       February 2021

Liz was wonderful, very friendly and great with the boys, even though the little one was very tired and upset when she arrived. My 4 year old only had lovely things to say about her. Would definitely recommend and use again.

Sophie C .       January 2021

We have used Liz’s services several times & now our children only want to be cared for exclusively by Liz & have taken to calling her Nanny Lizzie on their own accord :) Liz is simply wonderful & we highly recommend her services!

Damien P .       January 2021

Liz was great, our little boy warmed to her instantly. Picked up his routine, would recommend and reach out again.

Sophie C .       January 2021

This was our family’s second time using Liz & it was like welcoming an old friend into our home. Liz is very confident & capable, asks great in depth questions at handover & our five & three year old love her! Highly recommend Liz’s services :)

Taeko N .       December 2020

Liz is a very much experienced and trustworthy sitter.
She took care of my 4 yo for 10 hours with no problem and I could go to work without worrying too much.

Ben Z .       January 2021

Nothing was a problem for Liz, we had multiple date changes, time extensions and everything was accommodated. She is incredibly professional and I would never hesitate to recommend her to friends and family. It was our first time trusting a stranger to look after our baby, And the whole experience has left us comfortable doing so in the future. Thank you again Liz

Steph W .       November 2020

Liz is incredible from the moment you make a booking, great communication.
My kids (3yrs & 11mnths) warmed to her instantly, it was great being able to head out knowing they were in great hands.
My 3yr old can’t wait for Liz to come back.

Jamie M .       November 2020

Kids loved Liz, will hire again

Katrina M .       September 2020

Second time using Liz and would use her again. We are visiting from Brisbane this time staying at a hotel and she was happy to come to the hotel to look after them. Both asleep when she got here. Update message in the night that all was good. When we got back 22 month old had woken up and Liz was settling her back to sleep. I feel very comfortable with Liz and recommend her to all.

Julia P .       August 2020

Tara W .       August 2020

Liz is amazing. She is so great with the children as they just love her!

Tara W .       August 2020

5 star service from the lovely Liz. Kids loved her and she had a lot of fun with them.

Katrina M .       August 2020

Leaving the kids with Liz was like leaving them with their Nanna. She is so warm and kind. 2 kids were asleep when she got there one being my 20 month old. Who I fully expected to be awake when I got home as she often wakes around 10pm and thought she would be unsettled with a stranger but Liz got her back to sleep no worries at all.
The 2 awake had a good time with her and listened to her when she said bed time.
Felt very comfortable with Liz, 100% recommended and next time we come to the GC we would book with her again. Thanks Liz you’re amazing.

Anna M .       August 2020

Liz was absolutely wonderful with our one year old today. Her friendly and warm manner put everyone at ease instantly. She was punctual, easy to contact, and left the house clean and tidy for us to come home to.
Thank you Liz!

Sophie C .       July 2020

Liz offered an exceptional service!!! She was the perfect mix of playful & age appropriate & professional & efficient. Liz arrived promptly & followed instructions well. She managed bedtime very well & kept us updated with pictures & texts. Our son (5) & daughter (3) loved their time with Liz & we couldn’t recommend her services more - thank you Liz!

Evanora F .       June 2020

Liz was great, very friendly and available at short notice. She kept in constant communication and instantly felt at ease with her. Hopefully we will see her again soon

Kate M .       September 2020

We booked Liz last time we came to Burleigh, & didn’t even consider booking with someone else when we needed a sitter again this visit. Liz is extremely punctual & reliable, & is great with communication. I would highly recommend Liz to anyone looking for a babysitter in the Burleigh area!

Jill S .       June 2020

Liz was wonderful with our son. We will be really happy to have Liz looked after our son again.

Tanelle S .       March 2020

Liz made us feel very comfortable and our son warmed to her very easily. She sent us updates during the evening which put our minds at ease. Thanks Liz

Samantha F .       February 2020

Liz was incredible!!!
She was truly like Merry Poppins & also looked very similar to Eloise’s Nanna!

She knows her stuff and treated Eloise like a little person, so much respect.
She instantly made Eloise feel comfortable and asked her if and when she would like to do things.

We got constant updates through the night & Liz even stayed and extra hour as we were so relaxed and had so much fun.

Highly recommend Liz! She’s a gem xx

Linda S .       January 2020

Liz looked after my 3 yr old and 7 mth old children and she immediately made me feel at ease getting to know them and going through their evening routines with me. Liz built great rapport with my 3 yr old son very quickly and he had a wonderful time with her, asking about her again the next morning! We wouldn’t hesitate to request Liz again in future.

Liz was great. Very accommodating and warm with my 3 kids. She engaged well with them and they had a great time.

Luke J .       November 2019

We had traveled from Victoria to the Gold Coast for a wedding, and were a little apprehensive hiring a babysitter for 10-11 hours that our children hadn’t met before.

Liz was great from the moment she walked in,
our kids instantly warmed to her and had a blast all day. She arrived well prepared and had all sorts of ideas to keep the kids busy and happy for the day/evening.

They enjoyed their time so much that they were asking for Liz the next morning.

Highly recommend Liz the next time you need a babysitter.

Kate M .       November 2019

Liz was absolutely fantastic! She was very punctual, warm & engaging, & put our minds completely at ease as soon as we met her. We had a wonderful night out knowing our son was in very capable hands. Liz even happily extended her booking by 1.5 hours so we could kick on! We would definitely use Liz again, and will highly recommend her to anyone looking for a babysitter around the Burleigh Heads area!

Genna P .       October 2019

Liz was absolutely fantastic. This was the first time I had left my breastfed 10 month boy with anyone and Liz had him for a full 6 hours with no bother at all. Thank you so much Liz for allowing me to have a little time out with my hubby 😊

Thank you Liz ! Our boys love you and it was so lovely to come home and see them both tucked up in bed clearly they had a good time 🤗❤️

Sarah W .       February 2019

Liz arrived early and immediately filled us with confidence about leaving. The kids actually slept the whole time we were out so didn’t have any interaction with her but getting home to washed up dishes was a bonus, thanks Liz!

Linda W .       March 2019

Liz was great! She sent messages both a week and a day before the booking to confirm the date and to say she was looking forward to meeting the kids, which I found very reassuring. On the day, she was punctual, friendly and keen to understand the routine for my 1.5 and 4 year olds, and by the time I left, Liz and my 4 year old were happily playing (my 1.5 yr old had his nap). When we got back, the kids were happy and fed and my 4 year old was very excited to tell me about all the games they had played! Highly recommend Liz.

Charlie W .       September 2018

Mark D .       August 2018

On time, well presented, happy and made us all feel very comfortable. Worked with the girls routine and girls enjoyed her coming over.

Natasha P .       July 2018

Very accommodating to some last minute and on-the-go changes due to unknown extended finish times. 2 boys, 1.5 years and 3 yeras old both loved her and I felt they were very well looked after. Will book again when back in town and need a sitter for sure! :)

Chris W .       July 2018

Liz was very accomodating with our change of plans at the last minute due to circumstances beyond our control. She is very personable and was able to build rapport very quickly with both my Husband and myself and our two boys 8 and 6. Liz is a very clear communicator - we were able to openly discuss safety expectations held by all parties. I have no hesitation in recommending Liz and I have total confidence in her ability to manage long day care arrangements.

Keith P .       June 2018

Liz was great. She was friendly and reassuring. She was punctual and our daughter had a lovely time with her.

Anthony P .       May 2018

Liz looked after my little boy last week for the day. She was extremely professional wanting to follow his daily routine, punctual, extremely friendly, loving and I felt so at ease leaving him in her care. When she first arrived she spent that time bonding with him and spoke to him with such care. When I arrived home he was so happy and all his lunch, bottles had been washed, toys were tidy. Small thing for some but a big thing for a working mum.
I would highly recommend Liz for any of your child minding requirements and of any age.

Freya H .       May 2018

We felt very comfortable leaving our 3 children with Liz. She was engaging and enthusiastic and our 5 year old loved her (the others were asleep.)

Liz was amazing! She arrived early and developed a great rapport with our 10 month old straight away.

We would definitely have Liz help us out again if in the area!!

Guy N .       April 2018

Liz was wonderful! Would invite her again anytime!

Isobel D .       April 2018

Such a lovely sitter. My daughter loved Liz, they spent a lovely morning together. I can highly recommend Liz.

Michelle W .       April 2018

Liz was professional, competent and caring. She looked after my two early tweens, who sit in the autism spectrum, well and adjusted to their needs accordingly. It is a shame we are normally located in different states because finding people my elder child is prepared to tolerate is difficult.

Emma O .       March 2018

Liz was fantastic and professional. She was great doing bed time with our eldest and getting him to settle. I would highly recommended Liz and we will definitely be getting her to come and look after our boys next time we are on holidays.

Liz began working for us in January this year. From the beginning she has been extremely professional, cheerful and hard working. Liz has performed a range of housekeeping tasks including washing, ironing, cooking, making beds, dusting and generally keeping the house tidy. She also undertakes duties related to our three children (8, 6 and 4). Liz makes school lunches, does school drop off and pick up and spends time playing and engaging with our youngest during the day.
As I have had recent surgery and have been unable to walk and perform most duties, Liz has helped our family a great deal. She has shown initiative and patience and I would highly recommend her services to anyone.
