Probably not such a good idea to put your email address on an open travel forum. A recipe for spam.

Take a look at the accommodation section of the forum for an idea of the sort of accommodation on offer. At the hotel budget you are looking at - it is probably unlikely that it will include the sort of hotels where formal babysitting services can be arranged by a qualified and vetted person, albeit at a fixed hotel price.

Most people on holiday in Goa seem to take their kids out with them in the evening anyway - babies usually doze off as the evening goes on in their pushchairs, on someone's lap,on a couple of chairs pushed together or, if you are in a beach shack, on the beanbags! Most shacks and restaurants, as this is all tourist central, are well used to families with kids and some even have have high chairs these days - they are also quite good at bringing the kids' food really quickly as particularly small children do not have the patience of adults when it comes to waiting for their dinner.

I know quite a few people who have very young kids with them and they do not use babysitters as a rule. In the area we stay, there is one particular lady who sometimes gets asked to babysit (she is the wife of a locally known and trusted taxi driver/tuk tuk operator), but I would not dream of passing on her details to anyone else as I would not personally be able to give the assurances about her or anyone else and why would anyone trust a complete stranger's recommendation for a babysitter?! Take the kids out with you or increase the budget and stay at one of the international chain hotels where they have formal babysitting arrangements and will be able to let you know the price (you may need to add taxes) when you contact the hotel about booking.

Happy holidays.
