Pahonu (aka "The Robin Masters Estate") has a new owner!
3/26/2015 - Longtime Pahonu owner Eve Anderson has sold the hallowed property to Chicago businessman (and close friend of President Barrack Obama) Marty Nesbitt for a cool $8.7 million. Mr. Nesbitt bought the property with his own money and didn't have any partners or co-investors in the transaction. It appears that the Obama's were not behind the purchase of the property (although we'll have to wait and see, I guess). He hasn't said anything publicly about possible future renovations to the property, but we do know that the mortgage is nearly $1 million more than the sale price, indicating some major reinvestment is probable. Let us hope it is restored to its former glory.

The Fan Favorite winner will then air during the Magnum marathon on April 6th. The sixteen episodes were hand-picked by Peter Fleming (his "sweet sixteen").

Robin's Nest for sale!
1/23/2014 - The Anderson Estate (also known as "Pahonu"), the real life setting for Magnum P.I.'s Robin's Nest, has gone on the market (41-505 Kalanianaole Hwy, Waimanalo, HI 96795). The 3-acre oceanfront property, with its beautiful 11,000 sq. ft. Spanish Colonial Revival main house designed by Louis E. Davis (built in 1933), has a list price of $15,750,000 (Sotheby's International Realty)! The assessed value of the property is around $8,000,000 and Zillow estimates it to be worth roughly $9,000,000. Let us hope that whoever buys the property will not tear down the main house and boat house and subdivide the property into multiple units. This is an historic piece of property. Renovate and restore, please!
Update: The property is now listed at $10,700,000!
