We were so lucky to work with Natalie for two different nights while we were in Dewey Beach. She is so kind, thoughtful and the kids loved her. In fact, after the first night, the kids (ages 9, 8, 5, 3 and 1) BEGGED for us to book her for a second night. Natalie engaged the children, made them feel safe, and allowed us to have a very needed night (or two) off! She is a gem. We would recommend her without hesitation to anyone.
Natalie helped with our 3 kids a few times and was better than we had hoped. Her intuition and ability to anticipate their needs was so appreciated. I sometimes worry with our littlest and new faces, but she made sure we felt comfortable and assured me. She is the best!
We were looking for someone to watch our two school age children while out for a professional dinner and Natalie was fabulous. Professional but friendly, the kids had a great time with her out and about, including dinner. Would definitely ask her to watch our kids again and recommend her to our friends.
Natalie was great with my 7 and 11 year old daughters. She was very professional and my girls were very comfortable with her. I was a little nervous about hiring a sitter from the internet. Natalie was more than we expected. I was very impressed and plan to use her next summer. Penelope
Natalie cared for two two-year-olds while we went out for dinner during a Rehoboth vacation. She was wonderful. Highly recommend.
Natalie babysat for us when we were on vacation in Bethany Beach. She was excellent. Our 3 year old daughter immediately warmed up to Natalie. We even received an update while we were out, which eased my mind. Natalie was absolutely great and we will definitely use her the next time we are in town. Thanks Natalie!!
Natalie was absolutely wonderful with our children. She was extremely reliable and picked up after them and left the house in the same condition (or better) than she found it. We were so thankful to be able to get out while on vacation and feel comfortable leaving the children. Hopefully we can use Natalie on future vacations!! We would definitely recommend her!!
Natalie babysat for our two-month-old girl, seven-year-old boy, and nine-year-old girl while we went to dinner and a movie. Everything went great. She was on time and is extremely professional, and she seemed very comfortable both with the baby and the older kids. She helped clean up after the kids and took them for a walk to the park. The older kids played games with her until bedtime. In the morning, our son asked if we could go out again so that he could spend more time with Natalie. This is extremely unusual. We recommend Natalie enthusiastically.
I cannot express enough how impressed I was with Natalie, her daughter Emily & son Ryan. They babysat for my daughters, aged 3 & 6 and my nephew age 3. We had three date nights while on our beach vacation and they were on time, professional, fun, easy-going and trust-worthy. We came home to a clean house and happy kids who couldn't wait to see her again! It was such a relief to have someone so reliable - I never had any doubts that we were in capable hands. I highly recommend her, especially if you have more than one child since she can bring her son or daughter to help.
Natalie (and Emily) have sat for us twice and we were thrilled both times. They are warm and friendly, responsible, and our kids loved them. The service they provide is excellent, and they go above and beyond when it comes to caring for our kids. We will definitely have them sit with our three kids again!
Natalie and Emily babysat one night for my two boys and our friend's two boys. Everything worked out wonderfully. Natalie and Emily are so sweet, we didn't worry about a thing. I haven't been back to the shore, but my friend has, and she calls Natalie every time!
Emily took care of my twin 5-year old daughters for two nights and she was great with them! Emily is very personable and gentle. Her mom, Natalie, was wonderful too because she dropped Emily off a little early and picked her up later. They were even flexible when I had to change the start time the second night. My girls loved making crafts with Emily. Emily fed them and got them to bed on time. She even cleaned up the art supplies and washed the dinner dishes. I would definitely hire her again.
Natalie babysat our 9 month old son for us when we went for an evening out. With a little one it can be difficult to feel comfortable leaving them with someone new for the first time. Natalie agreed to come early so that she could get to know us and the baby before we had to leave, which I really appreciated. She seemed very comfortable with our son and from everything I can tell the evening went very well. I would definitely call Natalie in the future to babysit out little guy!
Natalie watched our 2-year old while my wife and I attended a wedding in Fenwick Island. She was amazing with our daughter and graciously accommodating when it came to staying a bit later into the evening so we could enjoy ourselves at the reception.
Natalie watched our 7 and 5 year olds one night on fairly short notice and was terrific! She has a very calm demeanor, and the kids were immediately at ease with her. The 7 year old who can be quite picky about his sitters asked the next morning if she would be coming again. Naturally, I said yes because we will definitely be calling again!
Natalie and Emily are a dynamic duo. My kids (ages 1 & 3) LOVED them. They babysat for us while we were on a beach vacation in Rehoboth just after Labor Day...they were easy to plan with - communicated well via email, text and phone, friendly and professional, punctual and showered the kids with attention and affection. My two are sometimes hard to put to bed and what a delightful surprise it was to walk in from an evening out with friends to discover them sleeping :-) We had a great time at the beach and are looking forward to going back...Emily and Natalie were a huge part of that!
Natalie watched our special needs son for us while we were on vacation at Bethany Beach. Our son is non-verbal, vulnerable and has a feeding tube, so we won't just leave him with anybody. We were immediately comfortable with Natalie and confident in her abilities. We were able to go out for evening on two occasions knowing that he was safe and well taken care of. We are planning on using Natalie for childcare again next year and I would give her my highest recommendation. We feel so fortunate to have found her! Kathy S.
We are so grateful to have found such a caring team while on vacation at Rehoboth Beach! Natalie and Emily watched our three children (ages 5,5 and 4) last night and they woke up this morning asking if they could return! I was immediately comfortable upon meeting the mother-daugther duo. They played games with the kids, colored, cooked dinner for them, took them for a walk to the beach and when we returned home two of the children were asleep. I was very surprised that they also did a load of the children's laundry! We will definitely call them again when we return next year!!
We loved Natalie & Emily and so did our children. They watched 5 cousins (Ages: 8, 8, 7, 5, 2). They immediately jumped in and helped with dinner while we got ready. They took care of clean up and lead them in dying Easter eggs! We came home to all the children sleeping soundly and the next morning telling us that they "loved the babysitters". Highly Recommended!
Emily and Natalie babysat for our 4 children for 2 nights in a row during our vacation in Dewey Beach. They were FABULOUS! We felt comfortable immediatly and our kids loved them too :) They brought games with them, took them to Dinner, the beach and Funland. We will call them every year when we come to the Beach.
Natalie and Emily were great! They dealt very well with the chaos of my wedding reception, setting up a 'sanctuary' where the kids could relax and get away. Natalie was also phenomenal with our special needs guest, really including him in activities with the other kids. If we are ever in Delaware again, Natalie and Emily will be one of our first calls!
This mother/daughter team was very flexible and reliable. We used them for a few nights during vacation for dinners out. Our kids are active and the younger one is very mommy-attached. By the third night, they had them asleep before we came home:-)
Emily sat for us while we were at Bethany Beach for a week on vacation. She was great and took our three year old to the pool or beach every day for several hours, which allowed us to get stuff done around the condo and/or make sure our one year old got naps on time. We also booked her one evening to sit so that the adults could go out to dinner and have some kid-free time. Our three year old had a wonderful time with her and we were grateful for someone so responsible - I never worried about our daughter in her care, even when I knew they were at a very crowded beach. At the end of the week, she brought both our daughter and our one-year-old sweet good-bye gifts, which made the car trip home much more fun. Happy to respond to any emails regarding Emily and our experience - we hope to book her again next year.
