For almost 20 years, Luc Robitaille played for such NHL teams as the Detroit Red Wings and the Los Angeles Kings. Today, he’s president of business operations for the Kings. In August, he put his 13.5-acre haven in Heber City, Utah, on the market for $2.6 million, but it is currently not for sale. The single-family, two-story home was built in 1999. It features a swimming pool, gym and basketball court, as well as pastures and a barn for those seeking a bucolic existence. In 2005, Robitaille allowed the house to be used as a refuge for people who had evacuated the Gulf Coast in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. AWWW, HOW NICE OF HIM. IT DOES FAVOR A LOG CABIN RESORT.

Laird Hamilton is a surfer. Gabrielle Reece is a volleyball player. In 1997, they looked at each other, said “Why not?” and married. It hasn’t all been a storybook romance, as the couple’s 2001 divorce filing will attest. However, they worked out the irreconcilable differences cited in the court document and they remain married. The athletic super-couple listed their second home in July. Based in Haiku, Hawaii, the home is near the surf break known as “Jaws.” The convenient location of the home appealed to Hamilton’s desire to surf the spot regularly. The home sits on almost 10 acres of Maui real estate and has a gym, a wraparound canopy and a fish pond that holds 1 million gallons of water. It features four bedrooms and four bathrooms, and it was available to anyone with $2.8 million to spend. It is no longer listed for sale. JEEZ, I HAD NO IDEA VOLLEYBALL AND SURFING PAID THIS MUCH!

English footballer David Beckham does not own this seven-bedroom mansion in Malibu. He and his wife, Victoria “Posh Spice” Beckham, merely rented it during the summer of 2011 for only $158,753 a month, according to the blog for the real estate website Zillow.com. The 10,180-square-foot home has nine bathrooms, plenty of space for the couple and their three children to spread out. It offers panoramic views of the beach. So if swimming in the 50-foot-long pool becomes dull, it’s easy to find the ocean from there. NOW THIS IS ENOUGH ROOM TO WALK, SLEEP, SWIM, COOK NAKED!

David Duval is a professional golfer who’s put not one, but two homes on the market in 2011. Both are in Cherry Hills Village, Colo., and he’s selling them in order to “simplify,” wife Susie told The Wall Street Journal. When she originally spoke to the publication, one property was selling for $5 million and the other for $9 million, less than what they had paid in both cases. However, the larger, more expensive property (pictured here) has had its price lowered yet again, this time to $7.85 million. This listing is a single-family home built in 1925, with two stories and a five-car garage. It features a guest house, nine fireplaces and facilities for horses.
