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.

Spotless and comfortable!
We just enjoyed a long weekend in Colleens perfectly located carriage house.
Upon arrival it was immaculately clean. The bed is really comfortable and the linens and towels are first rate.
It's a pleasant and easy walk to downtown Beaufort for dining, shopping, or just exploring the beautiful homes and sights.
We happened to be visiting the area as a potential location for our upcoming retirement. Colleen is a very experienced and knowledgeable realtor. She offered to show us around. We wound up spending an entire afternoon touring many neighborhoods and properties. The in-depth understanding of the area we gained would have been impossible without her.
Thanks so much Colleen for everything!

Great for a couple
Second time we have stayed here. Great location and CLEAN! Quiet little place and you are only minutes for restaurants and shopping. Visit Paris Island!
Perfect historic Beaufort location, immaculate lodging, and caring host
Amazing location with an easy 2 minute drive or 12 minute brisk walk along the waterfront into historic Beaufort. Giant private upstairs bedroom, living room, nice kitchen with microwave and high end refrigerator (great for wine storage), updated bathroom and private driveway parking. We were impressed with upscale amenities, loads of towels and necessities. Best of all is Colleen your host. She is a caring homeowner who thinks of everything and obviously cares about her guests happiness more than just business. She goes overboard to make sure your needs are met and encourages you to ask for anything she can do to make your stay better! I knew I had to write this review but actually delayed writing it because I'll probably never find a vacancy here again. Still had to do the right thing:)
While I am thankful for all of the wonderful reviews I have received over the many years of being a host, I am compelled to take a moment to respond to this. Life is busy with my real estate business and this VRBO property and I don’t always take the time to respond. Firstly, thank you for this wonderful review and for all of the reviews I have received. I so enjoy meeting all of the wonderful guests from all over the country. I love it that people are coming to Beaufort to share in all of its beauty and the warm and friendly people in Beaufort. And I do try my best to make it as comfortable as possible for my guests to have a relaxing vacation.
I look forward to many more years and to returning guests!
We had the best week staying in Colleen’s carriage house. Super clean and convenient to downtown. We brought our tandem bike and hardly had to use our car. Would definitely come back in the future!
The perfect couple's retreat
We were pleasantly surprised for our first visit to Beaufort. Colleen's "carriage house" was perfect....from the location to the accommodations, we were very much at home within a day's time. The kitchen was perfect for what we needed. We rode the bikes on the Spanish Moss Trail, walked to historic downtown Beaufort, enjoyed kayaking, a carriage tour and even traveled to Savannah for a day. I wish we would've taken the "private" laundry facilities more seriously and not overpacked. Everything was private for guests to enjoy. We are definitely considering staying here again.
Great place to stay while visiting Beaufort S.C. Good size room with kitchen and bath. Great hostess who fixed the lighting problem we had at arrival. Bikes provided and close to downtown. Comfortable bed and furnishings.
Beaufort is surrounded by waterways. My place is steps from high bluff overlooking the ICW. The downtown Marina is a 10 minute walk. The beach is Hunting Island State Park which is a 20 minute drive
