Inspirational quote about the beach on Hello Lovely Studio.

Is the beach house a real house or just a set? Those shots you see of the exterior of the beach house are of a real beach house at Broad Beach (read about the real Grace & Frankie beach house by Steve Giannetti here). However, the barefoot elegant coastal cottage style interiors were built on a sound stage!

What’s all the fuss about Grace & Frankie’s beach house anyway? Cocreator and Executive Producer Marta Kauffman told AD the beach house on Grace & Frankie is the third main character and “the place that healed them.”

What Prompted Me to Watch the Netflix Series

Brooke Giannetti mentioned on IG that watching the series felt eerie since her husband Steve designed the real beach house on the show!
