About Kristy and Mike Driver

Kristy and Mike have been providing property management services for luxury properties for the past 30 years. Developing our skills while servicing distinctive properties in Aspen, Breckenridge and Vail. We fell in love with the Fruita area because of it's year round sunshine and abundance of outdoor activities. Moving to Fruita in 2002, we began restoring properties and enjoying every moment!

Our goal is to make every stay in our homes memorable.

Kristy and Mike Driver purchased this house in 2008

Why Kristy and Mike Driver chose Fruita

We built the Guest House in 2008 on 5 acres of property just outside of the Fruita City limits. The home is perfectly situated to maximize the views of the Colorado National Monument.

We enjoy the wide open space, no neighbors and yet just 5 minute drive to town.

What makes this house unique

The houses are surrounded by green grass all summer and makes the hot summers feel cooler. The extraordinary views of the Colorado National Monument remind us to take in the beauty every day.

Peaceful and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights at Mike and Kristen's place. Very peaceful with amazing views. Lots of room to spread out. Very comfortable with all the amenities you would need. If you're a Mt biker their house is just a few miles from some of the best trails in the area. Our dog Luna loved sitting out in the manicured grass enjoying the breeze and checking out the neighboring cows.

Peaceful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We really did love our stay, the home was so perfect. Fruita was quiet, just what we needed, took a great hike in the recommended Devil's Canyon and found a few pumpkin patches while venturing out in the area. Definitely would want to come back again. Our dogs love it too, although we didn't let them loose as they aren't fully trained and our older dog is a bit skittish but they had a good time too. Thank you so much.

We Keep Coming Back

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this property on multiple occasions. We keep coming back for the following reasons:

1) central location

2) very clean and comfortable

3) allows our dog and she loves the large lawn

4) private and on a spacious lot

5) has everything we need and want (fully equipped kitchen, television for sports)

You can't go wrong in renting this place or any of the other properties owned and managed by the Drivers!
