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!
Why this Property Rental?
“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'd love to have you enjoy your vacation in our beach home 'Fun in the Sun' ....
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.
“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!
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.
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"!
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 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
This house has everything you could possibly need for a stress-free, full-filled week in the Outer Banks. The decks on the house are amazing and even have a hammock for a nice afternoon break. The pool and hot tub were clean and the perfect addition for when we came back from the beach. The house is a short walk to both the beach and the REC center. The beachfront pool is such a luxury and wonderful plus to the community. We enjoyed the REC center which has tennis courts, indoor and outdoor pool, a exercise room, everything you could possibly need. We had many different family members with us this trip and the eight bedrooms made it easy to make sure everyone had a bed to sleep it. This house is fantastic and can't wait for our next summer at Fun in the Sun!
Another great week in Duck and at Fun in the Sun! Everything was perfect as far as our accommodations are concerned. The house was extremely clean and the kids were in heaven with being able to "log on" instantly! The beginning of the week was rainy and we all found plenty to do. We used the house pool and new hot tub daily and once the sun did come out we were sitting outside on one of the many decks taking it all in! It was a short walk to the beach which makes for very happy kid walkers! This is our 3rd Fourth of July staying at "Fun in the Sun" and we wouldn't want to spend it any other place. Fun in the Sun has it all!
Had a great time with friends and family on our vacation in Duck. The Fun in the Sun house was better then expected. The 8 bedrooms were very spacious with enough bathrooms to accommodate our large group with plenty of hot water.The house is just a few houses away from the beach ,which was very convenient. I especially enjoyed the 2 free standing ice machines that we filled our beach coolers with and had plenty to spare. The kids enjoyed the "on site" pool as well as the pool located right at the beach.The multiply decks made several great places to relax and read in peace. I enjoy playing tennis and the Schooner Ridge development has a recreation center three doors down with two tennis courts, an indoor and outdoor pool ,as well as an indoor racket ball court.Plenty to do just at the rec-center. If you like to entertain a large group ,the kitchen was well equip to handle any gourmet dinning. For me, I just like cooking out on the three BBQ grills that were available . This house has it all and Mark & Kathy (the owners) hit a "Home Run" with this house. I would definitely rent again next year
If your looking for a place that has it all. Stop looking. Fun In The Sun is perfect. It has everything you need and more. It's a great place to gather with friends and family as it has plenty of space, tons of bathrooms ,pool, hot tub, TV, games and Wi-fi. They have thought of everything! The kitchen is s fully stocked with plenty of pots and pans for whatever you want to cook. Plus they offered two free standing ice maker,s which was awesome! We had plenty of ice for drinks and coolers and we weren't filling ice trays! The location is perfect in Duck as well. It is walking distance to restaurants, boutique shopping ,sports rentals and the duck town park. I loved riding my bike in the neighborhood and adjacent trails. The Schooner ridge amenities contribute to make this a well deserved five star rating with a ocean side pool, showers, and full recreation center which offers a indoor pool,game room and tennis courts. Our family had a great time and we definitely will be back. Mark was great to work with and we look forward to our return.
