Any Nanny or Babysitter Service?

We are coming down for New Year's week and would LOVE to have a sitter at least one night so we can enjoy the night life Key West is famous for. Any suggestions on how to find a reputable babysitter?

Good luck with that. But i can't see how safe it would be, leaving a child with an unvetted stranger.

But I do understand your dilemma. I have left my children, during the day, at a cruise ship's kids club. But never alone in a room or cabin.

Let us know what you find, if you find it elsewhere (ie somewhere other than TA).

There are bonded companies here, lot's of local kids work for them. Check with your hotel concierge.

We are staying at Truman Annex in a condo so I didn't think a hotel would offer up their list to a non paying guest. If there are some services, maybe I'll google them.

As a concierge, I always did. It didn't matter if they were staying at the resort I worked with or not. I really never asked either. You could also call the rental agency you went through and see what they have.

There are a lot of wonderful local people who post here. I would certainly take any advice they could offer. You have a decent amount of lead time. Maybe you'll get lucky. Good luck!

We have been taking our son to Key West since he was 2 (he's 15 now) and the best advice I can give you is if possible bring a grand parent. Then you have your reliable baby sitter and they will thank you for the awesome trip!!
