About Lt Col Mark Schmidt

Lt Col Mark & Kathy Schmidt (An F-16C Fighter Pilot & USAF Lt Col) We and our family live in Midlothian, VA (Richmond suburbs). We have three grown sons and one young daughter and all love vacationing in the OBX. Our beach home 'Fun In the Sun' was designed perfectly. It easily accommodates our large extended family vacations together leaving everyone plenty of room to spread out and enjoy their vacation and the many beach activities we love sharing together as a family!

Lt Col Mark Schmidt purchased this house in 2001

Why Lt Col Mark Schmidt chose Outer Banks

“Fun in the Sun” was perfect beach vacation home for us. This home had it all… with nearly 3800 sq.ft. of interior space to vacation and play in and over 3000 sq.ft. of party “Super decks” and Screen porch to enjoy we just loved it. “Fun in the Sun” is just a very short walk to the beach; and even closer to the community center and the walk down Schooner Ridge Drive leaves you right in the heart of Duck proper with all it’s wonderful shops and restaurants and Town of Duck park and soundside boardwalk. It seemed like they thought of nearly everything.

“Fun in the Sun” has a large beautiful pool, hot tub, gigantic “super” decks”, a private “Tiki” bar and the 14 x 22 Screened-in porch on the third floor which offers a terrific late-night refuge. The sea breeze and the night stars are so incredibly relaxing that I considered just sleeping there on the upper level private deck which is perfect for star gazing.

After looking at the many communities the Town of Duck in the OBX has to offer we decided that 'Fun In the Sun' in the Schooner Ridge community with all its amenities and accommodations, was the best place to best create our wonderful family memories which we know we will treasure for a life time!

We also love hearing from our guests and 'friends” who share with us their wonderful experiences and memories they've made enjoying their vacations in our home while discovering new ways to make their 'Fun in the Sun' Duck, NC vacations so special!

You can enjoy your favorite book in the large screened porch or choose to lounge on your favorite level of the expansive 3600+ Square Ft., four level 'super decks'. Perhaps enjoying a cold drink at you own private 'Tiki' bar Pool side is your favorite way to enjoy the afternoon? It's all up to you!

Return Visits

  • 5 of 5

Family and friends keep coming back since 2009. Each year we have seen improvements. New refrigerators. New ice makers. New TV's. Then one year, a new kitchen! Set up your "camp" at the beach in the morning. Come back for lunch. Leave your stuff down there as Schooner Ridge is neighborhood access only. Back in the afternoon for more beach and happy hour. So close to downtown Duck you'll feel bad about driving. Take advantage of the boardwalk on the sound and the shops along side. Back at the house, the new kitchen is great for crowds to cook in and eat. We eat at home every night and at the very least its 10 of us. Plus its stocked with every utensil possible not to mention the pots, pans, plates and silverware. Oh and two dishwashers.

A word about the owners. They called to check in as we've been return visitors. I mentioned the hammock on the lower of two big decks was a little weary looking. The next day a new one was in its place.

Its things like this that keep us coming back to our Summer vacation home.

Great house, location and vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming back to this house for 9 years straight nowadays it could be better. With all the space (8 rooms) everyone has a place to sleep. They have this great top deck that towers over the other houses and you can even see the ocean from it! 10/10 would recomend this house to anyone.

Best family vacation yet, and for years to come!

  • 5 of 5

The family and I spent a week of unbelievable comfort, Fun in the Sun is like a little bit of paradise. Our days were spent with the big decision of should we take the 2 minute walk to the pristine ocean beach? or sip cool drinks in the relaxing private comfort of Fun in the Sun's pool? The sunset BBQs, the smell of the ocean breeze, and so much space as to know your children are there, but you don't have to hear them if you don't want to.The private outdoor hot tub, the beautiful wrap around decks, the clean spacious bedrooms and baths, definite home run for any fan of all the comforts, for all your senses. I was floating in the pool listening to The Shark (102.5 FM) on the outdoor system, while the wife and my daughters took the short walk past the tennis courts and indoor pool to shop at all the great little shops on the boardwalk right out of the community. Happy hour at the Tiki Bar by the pool were the perfect way to end a beach day. The two Weber grills downstairs were perfect for grilling for a large crowd. At night we sometimes went to the boardwalk to sip drinks and listen to the music and stop for ice cream .Than back to Fun in the Sun to get everyone, put on our flip flops, and walk to the ocean and watch the stars and moon reflect on the breaking surf.We will be back again and again

Best Vacation in Duck NC

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely perfect for our family reunion in Duck. We have never stayed at a place that had so many amenities. It is obvious that the owners went out of their way to think of anything anyone would need while staying there. Bedrooms and bathrooms were perfect, living areas were spacious, so much room to spread out. The two ice makers, 3 refrigerators,2 dishwashers a hot tub and pool made things so easy. I love the granite counters in the kitchen and the spacious eating area, to accommodated our large family perfectly! The kids & adults loved the pool at the end of the day as we prepared dinner. This house is perfect for families or large group of adults. We would definitely recommend "Fun in the Sun" to anyone wanting a carefree vacation with all the comforts of home. Thank you our family enjoy our stay in your lovely, fantastic beach house.

The perfect family place

  • 5 of 5

While looking for a place to accommodate my large family for our parents 40th Anniversary celebration I was very skeptical there would be a place to fit all of our needs. Well... This place has everything a family could possibly need. The home has amenities that met needs of each individual family from the fitness center that is almost out the front door, the pool for the smaller children who couldn't handle the beach for long and the ice machines that kept the adults happy with great cocktail hours. The kitchen is large and easy to navigate, the guys just loved the screened in porch that allowed them to sit and talk into the night. Bathrooms connected to each bedroom was heaven! The kids also used the indoor pool at the club house a couple of days when the heat index was 107. Any situation that came up, this property met our needs and then some. And the owners are just amazing to coordinate with. We highly recommend this place, just be ready for some major "FUN IN THE SUN"!

Family Vacation We will never forget!

  • 5 of 5

We have family all over in several different states, so to get together is a rare treat! This place was big enough for 3 good sized families and Grandpa! We wanted Grandpa to never forget this vacation because he has alzheimer's disease. We got that and more! We were walking distance from the ocean and from a great rec center!

We spent time at visiting some of the local sights: Wright brothers museum, Bodie Island lighthouse and more! We really didn't have time to do everything in a week's time. We took pictures at the beach, kids in the pool, family photo on the pier, all the sight seeing we did, relaxing at "Fun in the Sun", etc.

We had a great time! We relaxed and had a blast together! Best of all, Grandpa will never forget this vacation! Truly, this was priceless!!

The house had everything we wanted and much, much more! Thanks! We will be coming back. Next year's vacation can not come soon enough!
