Coordinates: 21°19′30″N 157°40′48″W / 21.325°N 157.68°W / 21.325; -157.68 Robin's Nest is the fictional beach front estate on the island of Oahu, Hawaii, which serves as the residence of the main characters in the TV series Magnum, P.I.

In the series, the estate is owned by a renowned novelist Robin Masters, who is seldom present at the estate and entrusts Jonathan Higgins as the estate's caretaker and Thomas Magnum as its security expert. Higgins resides in the estate's main house while Magnum occupies the guest house.

In the real world, Robin's Nest is a private residence owned by local Hawaiian politician Eve Glover Anderson, who is the stepdaughter of Cox Communications heiress Barbara Cox Anthony, the wealthiest Hawaiian resident until her death on May 28, 2007.[1] The property is known locally as "The Anderson Estate."

The boathouse, or guesthouse in Magnum, P.I., fell into disarray during the mid-decade 2000.

The estate is located on the east shore of Oahu. It is situated at 41-505 Kalanianaole Highway (Route 72) near Waimanalo Beach. In Season 1, Episode 18, "Beauty Knows No Pain," Magnum drives Robin Masters' Ferrari down this highway. In the background is a lighthouse, which is located atop Makapuu Point, southeast of Waimanalo Beach.

The Anderson Estate was built in the early 1930s, and comprises a large main house, a boathouse (which in the series, appears as the guest house that Magnum occupies), a gatehouse, a private tennis court, a beach front and the tidal pool.

In the Magnum P.I. series the estate was primarily used for exterior scenes set at Robin's Nest. Virtually all of the indoor scenes set at Robin's Nest were filmed at the Hawaii Film Studio.

The Anderson Estate was also used in several episodes of Hawaii Five-O. In the series finale "Woe to Wo Fat" (1980), it served as the mansion of Steve McGarrett's archenemy Wo Fat.

Short scenes of Robin's Nest was shown on MacGyver and also on an episode called "Death in Hawaii" on Murder She Wrote.
