About The Owner

Don’t Do It yourself is a Cape town based company and was founded in 2013 by Bronwyn Garlick.

She began to realize that by sprinkling a little of her magic dust here and there, she could help people accomplish more and lead happier, healthier and a more stress free life. There is nothing better than seeing a plan come together and it gives her a great sense of accomplishment to help YOU get organized!

Realising how little spare time is available to those starting their own families, businesses and even the regular demands of a job she wanted to be able to make a difference. From the biggest event to even the smallest task can be stressful. She wanted to help improve people’s quality of life. Everyone’s busy schedules made her notice how much time it takes away from the things they really want and need to be doing. Spending time with their family and friends. Getting through all their work. Going to that yoga class they had been promising themselves for 6 months. Or even just, for once, taking a whole weekend to do absolutely nothing! Eventually the overload of work begins to make an impact on ones quality of life and the stress starts to take its toll.

Our Happy Clients

Bronwyn is detailed orientated, always happy to help and has handled numerous chores for me. From personal requests, handy man jobs, car licence renewal and shopping, she gets the jobs done in a timely manner and saves me hours. I can highly recommend Bronwyn to anyone who needs a spare pair of hands. I trust her implicitly and value her excellent service.
Caroline Bayly, Owner. Classic Escapes
You really helped a great deal when looking for new studios to rent for my Pilates practice. The research you did to find out about Sage Pay is also greatly appreciated.
Leilah Kirsten, A Moment to Move
Thank you for overseeing all maintenance projects that needed to be done at my house. Checking in and out of guests on AirBnB. Making sure house is stocked with everything for my arrival and for guests arrivals and that my house remains in tip top shop.
Beks Ndlovu, CEO, African Bushcamps
”Dear Bronwyn.Thank you for all your help with getting my inventory done. It was a pleasure having you here, as you’re very organised.”
Gwynneth Roberts, Gwynneth Roberts Consulting
DDIY saved me so much stress by helping me with my move. From packing things into boxes, to oragnising the movers, making sure they were at my new flat for their arrival and then helping me unpack!
Vicky Moronel, Freelance Stylist
I am a working mom travelling a lot for work. To get to the simplest of tasks can be extremely difficult. Don’t Do It Yourself helps me continuously with errands such as shopping for my baby’s formula, collection and picking up dry-cleaning, delivering nb documents and shopping for goods for the house. There are always things that crop up that I cannot get to, this service takes a massive weight off my shoulders
Hayley Upson, Managing Director, Moon Walk Media
Bronwyn was a wonderful hostess — she made herself available as needed and left a helpful guide to the area, apartment, and Cape Town.
Caitlin Corcoran, AIrBnB Guest
Bronwyn was the best host one could ask for, really helpful and spent much time showing us around and telling us about the local area. Would definitely recommend, and would love to come back another time
