|To be impressed is an understatement! We could not have found a more amazing babysitter. Amanda was more than we expected, she treated my daughters like family. The girls had so much fun with her and she has great teaching skills. I have a 2 & 5 year old, so we know that is no easy task but for Amanda it was a breeze. We thoroughly enjoyed visiting and chatting with Amanda, before and after our babysitting hours. I would use Amanda over and over, and hope that one day we are able to go back and visit again. Thank you so much Sidekick Sitters! ~ Randi Cortez|
|Without hesitation, I would recommend Amanda and Sidekick Sitters. Amanda looked after our two kiddies (2.5years and 6 months) on our recent holiday to Hawaii. We felt completely comfortable leaving the kids with Amanda, who kept us up to date while our children were in her care - plenty of messages and photos of them exploring Honolulu! My 2.5 year old still speaks of Amanda and their time at the zoo and we will definitely be in touch with Amanda on our return holiday. She’s the best. ~ Sally Taylor|
|We were in Honolulu for a week and I needed a last-minute babysitter. Sidekick Sitters were quick to respond and find two babysitters to help us. The babysitters who came were excellent. They were good with my children, asked me useful questions and kept them entertained in a variety of ways. I definitely recommend this babysitting agency. ~ Steph Cooper|
|For those of you on vacation (or even not) and are looking for babysitting services for during-vacation date nights, etc., look no further! After perusing/inquiring from all the care services I could find in the Oahu region, am soooo glad I settled on Sidekick Sitters. They were simply amazing. Amanda was our caregiver and from the second we met her in the reception area of our condo rental, our hearts were at ease. Warm presence about her, immediately engaging, our kids took to her quickly. And it was evident Amanda has a wealth of experience as our kids 3, 6 and 8 are in very different developmental stages, yet Amanda was able to fully relate and engage all three at the same time. Also, we had Amanda over for three different days, one evening, then two consecutive morning/afternoons. At first, we weren’t sure if we should start off with an evening as we never met her and wondered if we should start off with a morning instead, then ease into the night time routine. But as we described the night time routine, it was really clear she understood fully. And we were fully able to enjoy our date night. The text updates were also nice (and it even sounded like she did a better job with the evening routine than we sometimes do!). The other awesome thing was, being tourists, we didn’t know much about Hawaiian history, but as a Oahu local, we asked Amanda to fit in some educational tidbits to our kids about Hawaii, which was nice ☺. In all, we highly recommend Sidekick Sitters. Other babysitting agencies probably do a better marketing job on their websites, but in terms of the actual phone inquiry and subsequent process, Sidekick Sitters was second to none. We definitely plan to use Sidekick Sitters again in our next trip back to Hawaii. ~ Brian Fong|
We absolutely adored using Sidekick Sitters on our most recent vacation. Amanda was wonderful with our son! Highly recommend using them if you are looking for some adult-only time on your vacation! ~ Brigette Anne
|If I could give 20 ⭐️'s I would! Both of the ladies Simone & Amanda were beyond what I expected! I'm very overprotective of my kids & mostly my baby boy Vasili. I have not let anyone watched him so this was the first time & I'm very thankful to both of these ladies! He had an amazing time 🥰 they went on walks to the beach and to the parks around our hotel. They kept me updated throughout the day with pictures & texts. I'm so grateful to have met them & even more grateful they were the ones that watched my baby boy! Thank you very much to both of you & I would highly recommend Sidekick Sitters to anyone! Thank you very much! ~ Simi Dadiotis|
|The process was easy knowing the sitters already had background check, but Amanda made it easier caring for our grandchildren from the moment she walked in the door. She was confident and informative and immediately bonded with our babies. That was the best & made it more comfortable for us to venture out. She played with the girls all day & they were as tired as we were from our excursions. Thank you Amanda on all your tips about the island too. We'd definitely use your services again when we come back. Thank you. ~ Denise Admire|
|Thank you! We had Amanda look after our children tonight and she was wonderful at catering for 3 different age groups! The kids loved her and they had so much fun. Thanks Amanda! ~ Nicole Amy|
| Wow! We called Sidekick Sitters (Amanda) on our recent holiday to Waikiki to look after our precious little nearly-3yr old boy. Amanda immediately connected with our little man with her warm, intuitive and attentive nature. Levi was quite happy to keep playing with his new friend as we walked off only a few minutes after Amanda arrived, completely at ease, although a little upset that he didn't even look up to say goodbye as we left . Although we had been having a bit of trouble getting our excitable boy to go to bed on this trip, Amanda had no problem calming him down, reading him some books and he went to sleep with no problems at all. Not only that, when we came back, we found Amanda sitting next to our sleeping Levi in the darkened room, rather than hanging out watching TV or reading in the adjacent room... "I just prefer to keep an eye on him, just in case." Amanda was amazing and went beyond the call on several fronts.
HIGHLY recommend. - Robbie Friedman
|What a fantastic experience we had with Amanda and sidekick sitters. Our baby had a ball, and we so appreciated her constant updates and pictures throughout the sit. We will certainly be repeat customers next time we’re in Honolulu! ~ Jennifer Shinnall|
| Even with the power of the internet and babysitter sites full of qualified applicants, finding a babysitter is scary. Especially, when it’s your first child. Scanning the multiple sites, profiles start to blend together and when you finally select the profile, you pray it was the right one. We wanted to find a babysitter who was responsive, reliable, respectful, flexible, and first aid and CPR certified. A babysitter who was not only patient and held a calm demeanor with our daughter, but also with us. New to the area, new to being parents, and with high standards, we weren’t sure we would be able to find the babysitter we desired. That all changed when we met Amanda.
Professional from our first interaction together, Amanda met and exceeded all of our standards. She raised our standards of how a babysitter should be. From the moment she met our daughter, you could feel a calmness to the air. Our daughter took straight to her as Amanda was eager to introduce herself. After the first appointment, my wife and I knew how passionate Amanda was to work with kids. She was respectful and kept to our daughter’s schedule and performed multiple activities throughout the day to keep our daughter entertained, from playing with toys to going on walks. I was nervous about working from home with a 4-month year old in the other room, but Amanda did an amazing job keeping her happy. On top of that, she kept my wife updated by sending texts with pictures of all the fun activities. Amanda brings the same passion and love each time we use her.
We highly recommend Amanda to all parents. No longer does finding a new babysitter need to be scary or consist of searching through hundreds of profiles. Amanda is the right choice. ~ Justin McLennan
|I highly recommend using Sidekick Sitters! Traveling solo with my toddler, I was apprehensive of using a babysitter however I realised I needed some relaxed time by the pool and he needed some fun away from Mum! It was the best decision, my toddler instantly connected and was waving me out the door! ~ Lyn Mitchell|
We've used Amanda quite a few times in Hawaii and Sydney for our two kids (now 2 and 4). She's one of our favourite nannies. She has tonnes of common sense, is hard working and most importantly lots of fun. I highly recommend her services if you're a parent that wants some down time. Your kids will be in great hands. ~ Brittany Darling
|Amanda is an amazing sitter and a genuine person. My son absolutely loved her & was completely comfortable with her and I'm sure anyone else who hires her will be just as happy as I am with her services. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a sitter! ~ Jenny Brown|
|Thank you! Our baby girl loved Amanda. We also did! We actually want to take her back to Boston to be her nanny there. We will miss her! ~ Ray Carignan|
|Amanda from Sidekick Sitters was amazing - our daughter absolutely loved spending time with her, and is still asking for her a week later! Thank you so much for taking such wonderful care of our little girl! ~ Anna and Toby Davis|
We had Amanda come and babysit for us while we stayed in Waikiki. She was great! She was positive and knew how to interact with my kiddo right away, clearly is comfortable with small children and how to relate to them. Amanda had a bag of activities that kept my kiddo entertained at the park while we were out, fed him, and had him back in good spirits. Thanks Amanda! ~ Paulette Selman
|Super reliable, very caring babysitting service! ~ Alan Wong|
Simone , all I can say is she is the best along with the rest of the staff at Sidekick Sitters. My son had an instant bond with with Simone and within the first 10 minutes I knew that he would be safe with her! I loved that she took him to explore the outdoors and not just sit in the hotel room. My son's only had three babysitters in his life and I definitely have to put Sidekick Sitters on the top of the list - security, safety and making my son feel right at home! Mahalo Sidekick Sitters! ~ Floyd King
|I've used Sidekick Sitters on multiple occasions and they are fantastic! Amanda was our last babysitter and she went above and beyond making sure my son was taken cared of and really surpassed my expectations. ~ Victoria Morgan|
