Gigi Goode - Owner / Partner
Gigi opened Port Royal Village Rentals, adjacent to Port Royal Plantation, on Hilton Head Island in 1988 where she quickly captured the attention of the industry. With the advent of Internet marketing in the mid to late1990's, the vacation rental industry went through a dramatic change! At about the same time, Gigi and Brian became engaged and got married in 2004. In 2005, Brian took Port Royal Village Rentals island-wide changing the name to Goode Vacation Rentals. They modeled it after his very successful Oceanfront Rentals, the largest rental company on Hilton Head at the time, which he had sold to a national company in 2000. Gigi enjoys dance, tai chi, theater and the arts. She has served for many years as the drama director at her church and is an active member in our community.
