About Colleen Baisley

My name is Colleen Baisley. I moved to Beaufort, SC in 2002 from the Boston area. I chose Beaufort because it is a historic city, on the coast and perfectly located between Charleston and Savannah. It has surpassed all of my expectations in that not only is this the most beautiful place to live but the quality of life here is wonderful! I first lived about 2 miles from the downtown historic district but quickly realized that I wanted to be even closer. I live in the house attached to my carriage house that I rent. It is a beautiful neighborhood and an easy walk or bike ride to the shops, restaurants and marina. Real Estate sales is my business. If you are coming for a visit and decide that you may want to live here...I can help you! Stop by my office, in the heart of Historic Beaufort, at 820 Bay St. and ask for Colleen!

Colleen Baisley purchased this studio in 2006

Why Colleen Baisley chose Beaufort

I chose to buy my home with carriage house attached because it is perfectly located to the downtown historic district. It is located just a block off of the intracoastal waterway and you can walk along the ICW on your way to downtown. You will pass some of the grandest of the Historic Homes in Beaufort.

What makes this studio unique

Great location to explore the area as a possible retirement or relocation. You can explore the Historic Area, Pigeon Point, The Depot, Hermitage, Cottage Farm and much more without getting in your car. Jump on the bikes and start your search! Also a great base location to explore Ladys Island and the beach areas. Beaufort is between Savannah and Charleston, and both are an easy day trip.

The carriage house was spacious and comfortable, and our hostess most hospitable and helpful. The bed is huge, the linens fresh and ample. Beaufort is charming and the surrounding landscape very beautiful.

Beautiful Carriage House

  • 5 of 5

The carriage house was beautifully decorated, spacious, comfortable, and so, so clean! The king sized bed was very comfy and all linens were the best quality! We loved every minute of our stay there. It was so peaceful and relaxing! The house is conveniently located to walking or biking into town. The bikes provided with the carriage house were perfect for riding near the homes used in several movies. The house is near the waterfront and great restaurants. The porch is perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine and viewing the moon. Colleen was great to book with! We will return!

Perfect location, all comforts of home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the lovely Carriage House in Beaufort while visiting family for the Thanksgiving week. Everything we could possibly need was provided. The place was spacious and immaculate, the king size bed was incredibly comfortable. There is small kitchenette with a Keurig coffee maker and coffee pods, a mini fridge, toaster oven and sink . After long days out touring the area, coming home to the carriage house to sink into the comfy easy chairs to watch TV or read was incredibly relaxing. The location is perfect, just minutes from the waterfront park and downtown Beaufort. Will be visiting family again here and we hope to stay at the carriage house again. Highly recommended.

Great carriage house studio!! Exactly what we wanted – parking right out front, private, quiet, great location. Unit has very functional layout, nice to have the washer/dryer available for our use and the king bed was perfect. Would stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone spending time in Beaufort. Colleen was available and responsive, when we had questions.
