"My experience with Au Pair Rescue is very positive. I contacted them at a time when I was really desperate for help. I needed to reorganize my family life and that meant finding someone to help us with the children.I called asking for information and advice and they gave me a solution, resolving at once all my doubts and uncertainties about the experience of introducing a “stranger” in my home: Would it be uncomfortable? Would the children accept her? Would they learn the language?When Patrizia arrived she was also full of questions and a bit nervous. It was the first time she left home to be an au-pair, but we took her in as another member of our family and up until today, living together, and her relationship with the children has been wonderful. My children have learnt to respect her while learning another language and she feels totally integrated in our home.Since Patrizia’s arrival, Au Pair Rescue has been concerned about how we all adapted and got on together. They have called both of us to make sure there were no problems and resolving all of our doubts; always available and willing to help. With no doubt I will repeat the experience and I am grateful to Au Pair RescueE for making our lives easier, nicer and more interesting. It is great to hear my children sing German songs! And they love to feel different and special learning another language as they play games and have fun" (AA, November 2011)

"Whilst looking in my local card shop for cards for my twins' birthday I picked up a leaflet for this business run by Daniella. I had been thinking that I couldn't possibly face another sickly concoction from the local supermarket, yet I didn't really feel capable of producing a birthday cake fit to be seen by the mums who would bringing their children to the party. Problem solved!
I contacted Daniella by phone and discussed what was required. It was as simple as that. Her prices are very reasonable, the cakes (yes two!) tasted delicious and looked great.
I later had no hesitation in recommending her to two friends who were getting married. They were delighted with their cakes and the 'feedback' from the guests was that they were the tastiest wedding cakes they had ever had!" (VE, Nov 2010)

Au pair agency based in Manilva
Office hours: 9am to 5pm from Monday thru Fridays
Email: firstname.lastname@example.org ( 34) 952890484
"We are a family of with 3 kids under 5 and further than being very busy of course, we travel 6 months per year for business reasons. Generally, out of 5 au pairs, 4 were a bad experience. The idea of going through the reseach process again this year was just too much to coop with! Out of desperation and in need of help we decided to contact Costa del sol au pair since at the moment we are in this area. From then on it has been just a great collaboration and service. First of all is not an agency like the many that are advertised on the internet. She is a real person coming to see you, interviewing the family, asking all the important questions needed to find a caring and responsible person who will share with the family so much time. Someone to express all your doubts and requests. She interviewed her contacts and we did the same via phone. The first offer of an au pair was just the right one. It fitted our time requests, character and also language. She did a contract for both sides and is making sure all runs smoothly. Furthermore the cost for her work is less than some internet subscription for an agency you will never have a contat with other than through e-mails and your bureaucratic work is all done by her. We will keep referring to this agency for our needs not just when in Costa del Sol but while in other countries and we wish her business good luck!" (FBF, May 09)

"I've been living in Marbella for 2 years now and have a 6 year old daughter. When I first heard about this magical place I had to take my daughter Emily. I went first to have my hair done and manicure whilst she went downstairs and got treated as a princess for 2 hours. She loved it so much that I decided to celebrate her birthday there last month with all her friends. It was great they have there nails painted, facials with cucumber, hair, makeup, massage and her favorite was the sparkling tattoos. They provide snakes (cupcakes, sandwiches, sweets, drinks, cookies and kids champagne). They also offer a photograph who then creates a wonderful album. I recommend this place to every mum.
