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.

Perfect Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The room and kitchen were perfect. We were able to spend the weekend around the Beaufort downtown on bikes and walking and out and around the coast.

Southern hospitality at its best!

  • 5 of 5

Colleen is an excellent hostess. I had a wonderfully relaxing time in Beaufort, and that was due in part to the accommodations. The studio apartment was comfortable and welcoming. I will try to stay here again on my next trip to Beaufort.

Best Little Suite in Town!

  • 5 of 5

This little suite was PERECT!!! Was in town on business and a little R&R and Colleen's Suite was simply the best!! Great location, all the comforts of home, and every detail was thought of! We loved the peace and quiet, yet being so close to the historical district was perfect. Colleen is quick to respond and so helpful. Will be staying here again soon!

Loved Colleen’s Carriage House

  • 5 of 5

Booked this VRBO very last minute and was a great change of plans. Colleen’s little carriage house was just what we needed. Close to everything. Private! Clean & comfortable. Fell in love with Beaufort.

Do plan on staying at a Colleen’s again.
