We have been using Sitters at the Shore for 5 years and can’t say enough about how pleased we are with our experience. The service/response rate is always very prompt and accommodating to our needs, and most importantly, the sitters are phenomenal!…
Our sitter was punctual, sweet, professional and responsible. But where she really shined was her creativity. … When we book a sitter on vacation, we expect someone who keeps our children safe. We do not necessarily expect a sitter who enchants and delights- who dreams up and executes a fantasy personalized for our children. We are extremely impressed with the sitters and Sitters at the Shore.
I am the parent of a developmentally disabled young adult. My family takes a two-week vacation in Avalon every summer. I first called Christine when my son was in his mid-teens, hoping she might be able to find us a caregiver who could spend the afternoon with my son on a series of days during our vacation, giving him special attention and providing some flexibility and respite for the rest of our family. She sent us a delightful young woman who our son just loved.
I have been using Sitters at the Shore from the day my son was 6 months old. Every time I called, I received a call back with the name and profile information about the sitter being placed. The sitter contacted me directly and I immediately felt comfortable.
My child became ill and I didn’t want to go out, but Christine assured me her sitter will know what to do and she did. Everything worked out very well in the end. We spoke to our sitter before during and after our night out. We felt confident leaving her with our son…
I believe that this was Ginger’s first job working with you. I just wanted to let you know that she was fantastic with the boys. The boys were happy, comfortable, and looked forward to their evening time with Ginger.We had a great experience.
Hi Christine, We couldn’t have been more thrilled with our sitter, KelliAnn! Thank you for enabling a very special 10th anniversary weekend. We can’t wait to submit our requests for July and August, with our daughter’s preference, of course, to hopefully be matched with KellieAnn.
Hi Christine hope you’ve been enjoying your summer. I’m suspecting it’s been super busy for you, but hopefully good. We’re making our final summer trip to Cape May for 2013. We’ll be at Congress Hall. We’d like to request Kellianne for 5 days, if her schedule permits. Please let me know, and thank you in advance. As you can gather from this request, Kellianne has positively enhanced our summer vacations for the entire family (and of course that directly links to your organization and the priceless service you provide!)
Just wanted to let you know how happy we were with Amanda. We looooved her. She really made us feel so calm and we knew we could trust her from the moment she came in. Thank you and will definitely come back and call you again.
Hi Christine, We just wanted to tell you Dawn was wonderful. She was so sweet and Presley loved playing with her. Thank you.
This organization has been around over 10 years now and every single time I call them for a sitter, they come through for me. I have even called them last minute and Christine works her matchmaking skills to always make that perfect placement. I am so glad Sitters at the Shore is here, so we can continue to go out on our summer date nights. Thanks for being here for us.
If you are ever staying at the Jersey Shore and in need of a sitter, you must call sitters at the Shore! Christine provides a top-notch service! She sent a staff member twice this week for Hudson and tonight hubby and I got to get out for the evening and she watched the boys. They do an amazing job!.
Hi Christine, I Would like to let you know that Ginger was awesome, she is the type of sitter every parent would love to hire!! Thank you for your service. You’ll be hearing from us soon.
I just want to let you know how much we all loved Regina. She is wonderful! Thank you very much. My friends and I will be calling again.
Hi Christine,Tiffany was fantastic and we will definitely request her again the next time we travel to Cape May! She arrived early each night and immediately put me at ease. This was our first time leaving Adrián with a non-family member and only the 3rd or 4th time we’d ever left him with a sitter at all! Tiffany was super professional and very laid back, which I loved. I needed a laid back and confident sitter! Please thank her again for us! And we SUPER appreciate her willingness to sit in the dark for a few hours so that our little guy could sleep soundly. I will be in touch again as soon as we plan our next trip to the Shore!
