Tara came came over on short notice. She was engaging with the kids, playing board games until bedtime. Kids (9 and 13) were safely supervised, in bed and had a great time. Would recommend.

We were in La Jolla for a wedding and our other sitter (found on Sitter City as well) was a last minute no show. We scrambled and got in touch with Tara, who was able to come to our hotel with less than 30 minutes notice. She played with our kids on the beach and took them to dinner. They had a great time with her and she really helped us out of a bind. We made it to the wedding with minutes to spare! I can't offer much more than that since our time together was so brief, but she was so responsive I have to give her a strong review!
