Magnum P.I. Estate -- Zeus, Apollo: Patrol !

Visiting "Robins Nest" in Waimanalo, 30 Sep. and 2 Oct. 2002.
Safest way to walk to the Estate is at low tide. Unfortunately in October 2002 low tide was in the evening, thus the images of the estate's waterfront were made in low light. They lack the vibrancy provided by sunlight.

1. Drive to Waimanalo.
The estate is located on the Kalaniana'ole Highway (Road 72) in Waimanalo, HI 96795. This will always be a special address for all aficionados of Magnum P.I. To get there from Honolulu just drive counterclockwise along the shoreline. Highway H1 becomes eventually the Road 72. Behind Koko Head and Koko Crater, the road leads uphill across Makapu'u Head. From there opens up a magnificent view of Waimanalo Bay (images 23-02..23-04.) We saw this vicinity so often in the Magnum episodes...

2. Island Hoppers (in real life: Makai Research Pier)
Pier is located opposite of the Manana and Kaohikaipu Islands. It's the first stop.

3. Finding Robin's Nest. (in real life: Anderson Estate)
The Estate an be easily recognized by the solitary tree on the opposite side of the road (image 23-10.) You may stop and walk along the wall, but the view of the grounds is protected by screens and dense foliage.

4. Walk along Mr. Masters Tidal Pool.
Three houses further is a public beach with a parking lot. From there you may walk along the beach to the Estate. Observe the tides! You must walk through water in front of sea walls. You might find yourself trapped by swells pounding against the walls! If in doubt: don't walk (image 20-36).

I hope that this guide will help you in finding Robin's Nest. Time, and unfortunately also as it seems some visitors, have a negative impact on the condition of the Estate. Compare these images to the Estate in Jan. 2006 .
Have a great vacation on Oahu!
