Vacation Childcare - Waikiki

20


20 per hour

Need childcare while you are vacationing on beautiful Oahu, Hawaii? I would be happy to come to your hotel or vacation home to watch your children so you can slip away and enjoy some time as a couple. Depending on the age of your children, I can bring along some games, crafts, books or movies.

Babysitting services can include preparing meals, nap/bed time routines, giving necessary (pre-approved) medications, story time, play time, going to the pool, going for walks, etc. Please let me know ahead of time if you would like me to take them to the beach or pool, so I can bring what I need. I'm also happy to take them to nearby activities (the zoo or aquarium, for example) if you pay for the actual costs. I usually text a photo update to let you can see what we are up to, so let me know if you would prefer that I not send one.

Locations other than Waikiki will include a travel surcharge.

Training & Qualifications


I have over 30 years experience in childcare, including being a full time nanny, working at a day care, and caring for multiples (both twins and triplets), as well as living and working at an orphanage in Mexico. I have experience in home health care and in caring for children with various physical, emotional and developmental differences. Numerous families have had me watch their children for several days as the parents were traveling. I once cared for 6 children for just over a week, when the youngest one was still an infant. I've also traveled with families to help out during the journey. As a former certified EMT and Red Cross First Aid & CPR instructor, I have had extensive first aid training. (I never worked as an EMT but I was certified in Virginia for 4 years.) I've had to use my training twice to save the lives of young children and while I hope to never need it again, I'm very, very grateful that I know what to do in case of an emergency. My Adult and Pediatric CPR, First Aid and AED certification is current.

I'll be working to get some of my former families to join simbi and leave references but I'm also happy to provide names and contact info for you to check my references yourself. I understand it is hard to trust someone you don't know with your children and I'm willing to do what it takes to make you feel comfortable so you can enjoy your time out!

Availability & Preferences


My schedule is pretty open. Just let me know when you'll be here and we'll figure out a time that works for you.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

Charissa is attentive and offers good info as a product to swap credits for rather than a service; this is just fine for what the project is, and she ...continues communication for as long as needed.show more

I LOVE to travel but it is so expensive from Hawaii. If anyone has vouchers they won't be using (and that can be transferred) I'd love to trade. Just let me know what you think is reasonable. I'...

About Charissa Pacheco

I've lived in Hawaii for over 7 years now and absolutely love it! I'm a nanny and photographer who also makes jewelry (mostly sterling silver and glass) and loves to do crafts. I have extensive expe...rience with pet sitting and house sitting, as well. If you are visiting Hawaii, I'd love to give you inside tips and help you plan your trip, especially if you are trying to do it on a budget. Being frugal in paradise is my specialty! My newest adventure is that I've found a way to get scuba certified and go diving for FREE! WooHoo! I'm doing a work exchange program with a dive shop here on Oahu. I'm a "tank monkey" for one shift a week in exchange for my lessons and equipment. After a pretty horrendous health ordeal, it is exciting to be getting my life back and being active again. I'm into the "crunchy" lifestyle and prefer to make as much as possible myself. I've been brewing kombucha for 10 years now. I also make sourdough and yogurt. If there is a way to DIY something, I've probably tried it (or want to try it!)show more
