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 2014

Why Kristy and Mike Driver chose Fruita

We purchased this home because of it's wonderful location in the Grand Valley Estates neighborhood. The upscale homes in this neighborhood are well maintained, quiet and family orientated.

What makes this house unique

The interior of the home is 2 stories, which has the unique quality that keeps the upstairs bedroom areas quiet and private from the downstairs living and dining areas. The kitchen is huge for creating meals with lots of chefs.

The brand new bike path that runs right next to the home is convenient for walking the dogs. The covered outdoor patio is great for getting out of the sun and relaxing on those hot days. The privacy fencing if perfect for dinners on the patio.

Clean & Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the Juniper House on multiple different occasions as we travel to Fruita to mountain bike, eat pizza and drink beer (at the Hot Tomato). We enjoy this property for the following reasons:

- Immaculately clean

- Comfortable bed & living space

- Full kitchen with everything you need to make meals

- Fenced in back-yard and dog friendly

- Large two car garage to easily secure bikes

- Great bathrooms and water pressure

- Close to everything in Fruita and surrounding areas

- Gas grill and outdoor seating

This property is just a hop, skip and jump away from the center of town (Aspen Street). A quick drive, bike ride or a healthy walk.

Great House. What a price!

  • 5 of 5

Lots lots of room! And what a luxury to have a two car garage available. Kitchen was great. Sunlight poured into the bedroom in the morning and into the kitchen in the evening . It was a little chilly to sit outside but if it was warmer we would have had dinner outside on the patio every night.

Living room a great place to watch movies. Very comfy. So much room I set up an office to do work on vacation :( in the front room away from the rest of the house. Shut the door and worked away.

Very comfortable and spotless home close to town.

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect for our stay. Absolutely spotlessly clean and very comfortable furniture. The garage was a great bonus for our bikes, which we rode to town for dinner every night. The patio was a great place to unwind in the afternoon sun as well. The king bed in the master suite was perfect.
