We often get asked about some of the key services in Queenstown for parents so thought we’d jot the helpful ones down in case you need a babysitter or hire option anytime soon. We’re all about enabling your Queenstown adventures the best we can and all of the mentioned businesses aim to take the hassle out of travel. Whether you’re coming to Queenstown from Timaru or Timbuktu lugging all the kids gear around can sometimes be a real hassle so these services are perfect for modern travels!
Rockababy Rentals hires out everything from strollers to carseats, cots and highchairs in a truly bespoke service. They will even do your grocery shopping so that when you arrive to your air bnb, apartment or even hotel your fridge and pantry will be full. How frustrating is it when you arrive to your accommodation late at night and you still have to erect that niggly travel cot? Not with Rockababy Rentals – they provide this service right across Central Otago too.
Tots on Tour have been around in Queenstown for over 15 years – they started out as a nanny/babysitting service but branched out into baby hire equipment too in recent years. They will liaise with your rental car and accommodation provider to have everything sorted for your arrival or you can collect. All their sitters are referenced checked and have first aid certification. Another way to take away so much of the hassle of travelling with kids!
Babysitting Queenstown offers a very slick and professional service – all their team attend a weekly meeting to ensure team morale is in check plus they all wear a uniform. They have all passed the checks you would expect from top-notch child minders and will cater to your needs whether you need a nanny for the week or just the evening.
Follow the Queenstown Nanny to find all the great hidden treasures of Queenstown suitable for kids – seriously cool ideas and insights here. She’s already a pretty busy lady but definitely worth a look if you’re interested in the kid-friendly secrets of Queenstown from hikes to parks, playgrounds and so much more.
Joy Co exists right across the country helping families create luxury themed parties for their little ones. This is one we’ve only just come across recently from this very cool Wanaka-based Mum providing slumbers, parties and picnics. Check out her Instagram for more great pics of all the amazing work. Think teepees with soft mattresses, plush blankets and decorative cushions – so many beautiful options. This one isn’t just for parents travelling to Queenstown – locals will love this one too.
And of course no trip to Queenstown is complete without a visit to Rockies. We're now just based at Remarkables Park (just by the airport) and the store is looking fab fab fab!
Love from all at Rockies x
