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 Duck

“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!

Perfect for large family

  • 5 of 5

Fun In The Sun property was perfect for our large family vacation. The neighborhood was extremely quiet with the community center and beach access within walking distance. There were plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms for all. We spent every evening on the decks or in the screened porch while the kids enjoyed the swimming pool and hot tub. The kitchen was beautiful and extremely complete (even a crockpot)! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

I've had an amazing time staying at this house. We were close to the beach and we had easy access to different shops and restaurants. The house was clean when we got there too. Nothing was broken or disfuncational. I will definitely come again.

Outstanding Property!

  • 5 of 5

“Fun in the Sun” is just an outstanding property – sooo much comfort, sooo many amenities (two ice makers, 3 refrigerators, 2 dishwashers a hot tub, a pool come to mind). I love how the multi-level floor plan comfortably accommodates sleeping arrangements for all of the extended family while the spacious upper floor provides a great common space with kitchen, dining room, screened-in porch, massive deck and large screen TV viewing area all seamlessly flowing for great family time! Located in the heart of Duck, Schooners Ridge offers a terrific beach as well as community fitness center, tennis courts, and indoor pool and easy access to all that Duck has to offer (Restaurants, Shopping, Market, etc). A special note about Fun in the Sun – BLAZING FAST WIFI/INTERNET ACCESS! This is key for teenagers and adults alike and has been an issue for us at other properties (even in paradise, sometimes you need to check in on things at the home or in the office..). Highly Recommend this OBX Jewel!

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.
