About Antonia Cole
My husband and I co-owned a few optometry practices in the Invercargill, Queenstown & Wanaka for approx 30 years. We have 4 adult children, 3 of whom are married and 3 grandchildren. We moved back to North Auckland in 2013 & then embarked on the process of renovating and re-building our 1928 Bach. It turned out to be a bigger task than we first envisaged , but we do love the simpleness and also that it has all the mod cons but still feels like a beach Bach. We love the laid back feel of Manly and also having the beach just across the road and being able to walk across the road for a warm clean swim at a moments notice. I am now semi retired and am enjoying having time for friends and family and having time for some creative crafts. Graeme and I enjoy our family and friends, and still help our family renovate their homes.Manly whilst it is on the border of Auckland city, it is still close enough to go into the city to enjoy the city life and activities. Graeme grew up in Auckland and went to Auckland Grammer, and Auckland University. I was born in the Netherlands but grew up in Perth Australia. We love the beach, sailing, water ski-ing, poor fisherman, love walking and biking.
Antonia Cole purchased this House in 2012
Why Antonia Cole chose Manly
We purchased this property because it was beside the sea. We loved the foreshore and the pohutukawa trees lining the banks. I also wanted to be near the city to enable us to go to shows and do city events.

The property is lovely, and the location is fabulous if only it hadnt rained the whole time, but having said that with the big living area we were able to enjoy being in together and looking out over the beach
We were sorry that the weather was so poor. I can promise you it is not like that all the. Time. Thank you for leaving the house in good order it was much appreciated.

The property is situated right on the beach with stunning views, it was hard to make yourself away from the comfortable couch to do much else! The house was extremely well equipped with everything you could possibly need, something we were not expecting.
We strongly recommend The Bach on Manly for a truly relaxing holiday, you would not regret minute. We want to live in it !
Great location, just across the street from the beach!
Great location, just across the street from the beach! The views were fantastic, surrounded by pohutukawa trees, still in bloom. The property had it all, lovely deck, table with umbrella and outdoor fireplace.
The backyard had a large deck with a nice barbque as well. We were very close drive into the village with nice cafes, restaurants and other facilities.
We will definitely be staying at this property in the future.
We will definitely be staying at this property in the future. The Bach is open and airy with an amazing view. Having the beach at our doorstep was perfect in every way. The furnishings are lovely and comfortable and the updated kitchen and bathrooms made it feel like a home away from home.
