"We recently vacationed on Siesta Key and found ourselves in new territory - in need of a sitter! We had always taken my mother-in-law but her health would not allow her to travel. I panicked and considered having no date night while on our trip. Our Loving Arms was recommended by our condo company and I called and spoke to Casey - what a relief! She put me right at ease. On the big night Victoria was our sitter - what an angel! They even did crafts! Our Loving Arms went above and beyond any expectation I could have had. I highly recommend them."
