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 Low Country & Resort Islands

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.

Lovely Carriage House Loft!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful finishes and linens. Very private. Kitchenette is small and useful; bath is nicely accommodating.

Location is nearly flawless -- easy walk to Waterfront Park, dining, historical district.

Colleen is a gracious hostess -- attentive but discrete.

Highly recommended -- we'll definitely be back!

Outstanding VRBO in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Colleen's carriage house VRBO was just perfect for my husband and me. It is immaculate and so comfortable. Colleen has thought of so many little extras to make the stay so nice. It is a convenient walking or bike riding distance to downtown and she has bikes and helmets for your use. That's a wonderful bonus particularly since her house is also very close to the Spanish Moss Trail. Had we been there another night I'm certain we would have enjoyed grilling out and relaxing on her lovely deck. Thank you for everything Colleen!

Highly recommend!!

Perfect couple getaway!

  • 5 of 5

If you are considering visiting Beaufort, this is the place to stay. The Carriage House is PERFECT for two. It is just the right distance from town which allows for a leisurely stroll to check out the marina boats and southern architecture. After a full day of shopping, dining, touring or biking, the Carriage House offers a comfortable, quiet retreat. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the owner was available for all of our questions. We would definitely stay in the Carriage House again!

Adorable, comfortable and convenient place to stay while enjoying the low country area!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay in this cozy and comfy carriage house! The bed is wonderful and we slept soundly! Loved the natural light that comes in the windows and the ability to control the temp in the carriage house. We borrowed the owners bikes and cruised the Spanish Moss Trail which was beautiful. There's also a lovely courtyard and a cute seating area outside the carriage house to relax and enjoy the beautiful weather. The owner provides everything you will need for a relaxing stay. Thank you for sharing your little piece of paradise with us!

This was my first visit to Beaufort and it was perfect. The carriage house is located in a charming neighborhood within walking distance to downtown and waterfront park. We thoroughly enjoyed the area as well as the accommodations. The carriage house is clean and comfortable and loved having use of bicycles. Old Bull Tavern, Blackstone and Plum and Moon bagels were our favorites, the restaurants on waterfront park seemed overated and service was poor. Thanks Colleen for a perfect place!!!
