About Us

Destination Sitters is the premier hotel babysitting and event childcare referral service in Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego, San Francisco, Silicon Valley/San Jose, Santa Barbara and the Palm Springs area for hotels and other destinations. Since there are no state standards for temporary childcare,
Destination Sitters has established our own high standards (see below). Our babysitters are highly experienced,
carefully screened, fully background- and health-checked and are certified in CPR and First Aid. Simply call or
book a reservation on-line and we will work to match a babysitter with your child’s needs.

All of the babysitters we send to hotel properties or other destinations (conventions, weddings, country clubs, etc.)
are referrals, easily recognizable in their uniforms and photo ID tags, arriving (at least 15 minutes early)
with age-appropriate toys, games, activities and books!

Destination Sitters, LLC carries liability insurance and serves over 800 of the finest hotels, convention centers, wedding and event planners and others.

Cancellation Policy

When you book a babysitter for your hotel childcare or other destination, that childcare provider reserves the time you’ve requested for your child. The babysitter does not take other jobs or make other plans, because you have reserved the babysitter for your requested times. This means that the childcare provider is not looking for other work to earn money during that time you’ve reserved the babysitter and the babysitter is refusing to take other jobs which are offered to the babysitter during that reserved time because you have requested that the babysitter be available for you, and the babysitter is now counting on working for you. Therefore, if you are not going to need the services of the childcare provider, you must cancel with enough time beforehand so that the babysitter has a chance to find other work and the agency has a chance to book the services of this childcare provider. If you do not cancel by the times required below, you will be charged per this policy, as described below.

Confirmed sits must be cancelled in advance or a cancellation fee will be charged. Hotel babysitting or babysitting at other destinations occurring on one day must be cancelled at least 24 hours in advance of the reserved babysitting time or a 4-hour minimum charge at the confirmed hourly rate will be charged. For two, three or four multi-day sits, a 4-hour minimum charge at the confirmed hourly rate will be charged for each day that sits have been booked, unless the sits are cancelled the same number of days in advance. So, for example, if you have booked a hotel babysitter for two days, that sit of two days must be cancelled at least 48 hours before the reserved sit time or two 4-hour minimum charges (i.e., eight hours – one 4-hour charge for each of the two booked days) at the confirmed hourly rate will be charged. Sits of three days must be cancelled at least 72 hours before the reserved sit time or three 4-hour minimum charges (i.e., twelve hours – one 4-hour charge for each of the three booked days) at the confirmed hourly rate will be charged; four days, four days in advance of the reserved sit time or four, 4-hour minimum charges (16 hours) at the confirmed hourly rate will be charged. For sits longer than two days and for more than 4 hours, at a minimum, the above policy shall apply, however, please contact the office to see if an additional cancellation policy could apply to your sit.

We look forward to providing you with hotel babysitting, event childcare or childcare at other destinations!
