About Joe Namie

I am a retired U.S. Navy officer, CPA, Real Estate agent and most importantly a missionary to West Africa, husband to the most wonderful girl in the world and father of three fine children and four cherished and precious grandchildren. We love the beach, especially the 26.6 mile 30-A stretch(known as 30-Ahhhhhhh)along the white sands of the Florida panhandle. Seagove was established in 1949 and captures the true spirit of Florida's Gulf Coast hospitality and leisure. I have traveled and worked in 198 countries and America is my favorite country and Seagrove my favorite locale. Working diligently to serve others and follow the Great Commission!

Joe Namie purchased this house in 2010

Why Joe Namie chose South Walton

We have been vacationing in the 30-A area for 25 years and have wanted to live here from 1st time. This area is so Family friendly and perfect for peaceful beach relaxation and for building so many fine memories of life and love. Off the beaten path at the beach but literally a short walk or biking to shopping, dining and spas on scenic Highway 30-A. Our house is ideally located with Gulf of Mexico's Seagrove Beach and Eastern Lake views along a rare dune lake which forms a tidal basin for children to play and parents to relax and watch them in joy. Twenty-three palms is a beach oasis surrounded by 23 variety of Palms and dedicated to peace and harmony, just as the double entendre it is meant to be, The Twenty Third Psalm+

The rest of the 7 sister beaches are absolutely wonderful but at Seagrove Beach the oldest of the 7 sister beaches on Eastern Lake Road which is part of what I call the Golden Triangle of off the path living, you can enjoy the rest of them with a 10-20 minute bike ride along the reserved bike paths that run along 30-A at this special segment. None other like it for relaxation but a choice for when you want more action.

What makes this house unique

Located 50 yards from the public beach access known as Eastern Lake #10, where you enter pristine Seagrove Beach and beautiful Eastern Lake with a natural and rare dune lake beach inlet for children and Family. Ideal for sunrise and sunset or for that matter any beach walks taking in all of God's nature. House offers so many venues for coffee klatch chats with Jimmy Buffett style living on 3 decks and especially sunset libations on the Tower Deck. Great happy hour setting by private pool also, with stereo sounds surrounded by royal Hawaiian palms. Biking, hiking and yolo are prime past-times and beach surfing. Fantastic restaurants up and down 30-A with unsurpassed art shopping. Once you have stayed in this part of 30-A, the rest while still very enjoyable will be even more fun with the logistics of this tucked away Gulf view location.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Fantastic Vacation at Twenty-Three Palms

  • 5 of 5

This was our first vacation to the Emerald Coast, and we couldn't have picked a better destination than Seagrove Beach, and more importantly, Joe and Lisa's beautiful house! Twenty-Three Palms had everything you could want or need. It is a very short walk to the beach and the lake basin, where we enjoyed the white sand beach and crystal water. The house is warm, spacious, and full of amenities. We spent many hours out on either the second floor covered deck or the covered deck on the 3rd floor sipping beverages and soaking in the view. The swimming pool was a big plus for the kids. We have booked houses through HomeAway for several years now, and Joe is by far the most gracious and accommodating host. Joe ensured we had everything we needed before our arrival, and checked in with us several times during our stay to make sure everything was in order.

We will definitely be staying at Joe and Lisa's beautiful home the next time we visit the Emerald Coast. It was truly and fantastic vacation!

Fifth Time Staying and it Keeps Getting Better!

  • 5 of 5

23 Palms has become my family's personal choice and favorite for beach vacations. This recent stay represents our fifth, maybe sixth, time staying with the Namies and it would be hard to get any better. Our kids (5 and 8) have now grown up coming to this home and call it "their beach house". They know every nook and cranny and Joe and Lisa do a great job making sure the house is super accommodating to everyone from toddlers to old folks alike. I think if my family could stay all summer at this home they would in a heartbeat, and live on the front porch and by the pool, in between of course, trips to the beach! The access to the beach is a short wonderful walks, and any previous concerns with safe and dry beach access has now been fixed with a wonderful connection to the nearby beach. The proximity to Eastern Lake and the ocean can't be beat, and offers an awesome experience for SUP boarding, chasing fish, or just letting the kids play if the ocean is a little rough. We can't say enough about this home and will definitely be back! Thanks Joe!

Wow Wow Wow

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay to 23 Palms, and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! From the moment we arrived, Joe was the most gracious host. The house was so clean, accommodating, and homelike. Every single one of our party felt like we were at home during the whole week. The beds were like sleeping on a cloud. The owners really thought of everything. This is the 2nd year that we visited the Santa Rosa area and we will definitely be back, but Seagrove beach was perfect for our one year old because of the lake basin. It was so beautiful and we felt like we were on our own island. The short walk to the beach was a HUGE perk as well. I can not say enough good things about our experience. Thanks again, Joe! We will be back!

Owner's Response: Kellie I've said this many times but when a Family like yours with two, three or more generations came experience this sweet piece of beac paradise in our home, the memories you make truly warm our hearts! America has so many types of Families and traditions and when they encounter a special place like Highway 30-A and the vastness of the Gulf of Mexico to find the common gifts of joy, relaxation and fun it is truly miraculous and fulfilling! It was a true pleasure to be the psuedo inn-keeper to such fine folks like you. Thank you so much for the pictures of the beach fun y'all had, it made it very personal to me. We do hope you come back to enjoy our home and some big new upgrades and additions planned for next year. Blessing to you and all those close to your heart Joe

Wonderful vacation at Twenty-Three Palms

  • 5 of 5

We just got home from a wonderful vacation at Twenty-Three Palms and we all can't say enough.

The house was very clean, spacious, and well maintained. The owners, Joe Namie and his wife, have thought of everything...from providing pool towels, pool toys and floats, a wagon to transport stuff to the beach, a fully stocked kitchen, and movies galore, etc. With ten people in our family we never felt crowded inside or out. For example, we had several movie nights and were all able to fit comfortably in the family room and dining at the same time was never a problem. The heated pool was a great size for our four children and the different levels were perfect for our kids ages 1, 4, 8 and 10.

Overall the house exceeded our expections and we would love to visit this home again.

We hope y'all can return and continue the tradition of joy and happy days! Blessings, Joy and Grace Joe

Nice place, close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed this big home, lots of room. Liked the upstairs porch the best, with a view of the ocean at a distance. Also enjoyed the heated splash pool - it was small, but adequate for our needs. There were a few minor glitches to our stay, but the owner was quick to remedy any problems, his housekeeper was just moments away. Would love to visit this home again.

Our favorite home!!

  • 5 of 5

Joe,

Thank you so much for sharing your home with us once again (5th trip). It is always a delight to rent from you. We were so happy to see that we no longer had to walk through the lake to get to the beach! The home was large enough for everyone to spread out and have their own space. We enjoyed the sunset almost every night from the top lookout. Again thanks for sharing your home and hopefully will be back again next year!
