About the property

A lovely private residence, tucked away from the crowd, a 30A Southbeach villa

4 BR/3 BA, sleeps 8, gulf view, pool

Twenty Three Palms, is a beach oasis South of famous Scenic Hwy 30A. Our beach treasure is topped off with a tower room where you will be able sit, relax and enjoy the gentle breezes and breathtaking views of the gulf, nearby Eastern Lake, as well as sunsets, the moon and the stars under an sanctuary setting with 23 beautiful palm trees surrounding the pool and house.

Our elegant beach home is designed to accommodate your family and friends in a Jimmy Buffet style audio and video state of the art setting for pure comfort. You will find a large grand master suite plus two master guests / bunk bed children’s rooms on the first floor, while the second floor features another master bedroom and the main living area which is very open and inviting with ample seating for everyone.

The numerous windows and large porches with comfortable seating provide wonderful views of the gulf, beach and waves from inside and out. All of the bedrooms and the great room have HD plasma or flat screen TV’s with DVD. Access to the beach and the natural tidal basin off Eastern Lake is PERFECT for small children and adults alike and only 3 minutes from driveway. This is one of the prettiest locations in South Walton and family after family have said so.

When you are not at the beach, the beautifully landscaped yard with fenced-in courtyard, private pool, deck and patio provides the perfect place for a “happy hour” setting where everyone can gather among shady palms. Listen to your favorite music from 4 outdoor speakers on 2nd and 3rd floor verandas. A gas grill and FULLY equipped kitchen/bar area just up from the pool and lower screened porch makes outdoor dining easy. Enjoy nearby shops, restaurants, bike trails, golf and all that SoWal has to offer from this central location in a quiet, safe cove.

About Joe Namie

I am a retired U.S. Navy officer, EA (Enrolled Agent) 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 Seagrove Beach

Our home is ideally located on Highway 30-A, in what is called the Golden Triangle, an area South of 30-A at beach bottom perfectly located in quiet solitude but within 1/2 mile of all the fabulous activities along bustling 30-A. Walking distance to Seaside and Seagrove main.

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

This was the most restful and harmonious time together ith my Family. The combinaton of the beach and lake surrounding us and allowing us to walk around this beautifuly area made this an annual event with us. Seagrove is GREAT!!! Can't wait till this Summer.

VRBO Bear stayed here

Oct 15, 2016

Twenty-Three Palms was the perfect oasis for the VRBO bear and family to unwind and celebrate some milestone birthdays. The moment you arrive you are greeted by many lovely palm trees amid the tropical landscaped yard. The home is beautifully decorated with unique decor throughout and fabulous views. There are games and books for the kids, as well as games that adults could enjoy. We spent many evenings around the dining table playing games, having some laughs and making some memories that will last a lifetime. One of our favorite things to do was to sit out on one of the many porches in the morning with a cup of coffee and watch the sunrise and in the evening with a cocktail to watch the sunset. We had all we needed to enjoy a fabulous vacation, including extra linens, beach towels and oscillating fans. You won’t need to bring much from home, so save that luggage space for other stuff. The owners were a delight to work with and provided some great recommendations for activities and local dining and shopping. The VRBO bear and family can’t wait to come back and celebrate other joyous occasions and we highly recommend you do the same!

Exceptional! 5/5 -

Beautiful, comfortable, very relaxing!

A perfect place to spend some time at the beach. A well decorated and equipped house with an ocean view. Only a few steps to the beach, private pool, grill, and a margarita machine. What else could you need?

Beautiful, Clean and steps away from the beach/lake

  • 5 of 5

First off, the owner Joe, has been a true pleasure to communicate with. He was half way around the world but texted me 2 hours after our arrival (midnight his time) to make sure everything was good. The house is beautiful, the living room is much larger in-person and accommodated our entire family. The kitchen was very well stocked as we prepared several dinners at the house. The beds were very comfortable and the pool was great for the kids and adults. The house was also ultra-clean when we arrived. The beach access is a 1 minute walk from the house which made it easy to get all our gear on and off the beach daily. It was a great family vacation and we'll definitely be back. Thanks Joe!
