We stayed at Villa canaria for 3 nights in late May. The villa itself was nice and the room was spacious and had 2 nice balconies. However, it's located in a very small town with nothing to do. If you stay here, make sure you have a car (or similar) so you can go out during the day and in the evening. The villa is clean and the bed was fine for us. We had a kitchen and a bathroom, which were both suitable. Some of the decoration needs redoing (especially the floors) but this didn't really bother us. But be aware that some of the Lino is a bit lose and you can slip on it.
The local beach is more of a harbour and is dirty because of the boats. We would recommend Medulin or Premantura if you want a beach holiday with a variety of restaurants. However, Istria isn't the best place for a beach holiday.
We found booking a taxi and renting a car through the villa very easy to do. However, it costs quite a lot and would be a lot cheaper if booked online before you arrive (perhaps on a comparison website). We didn't think we would need a car but you do.
In may, lots of things are closed. Which is odd because every thing usually opens in March in the UK. But that's just the way it is. So consider the season.
The staff at the Villa were very friendly and helpful. And we were given useful advice.
The wifi at the villa doesn't work half the time (which may be frustrating if you need to look up places to visit etc).
We would also like to add that the walls in the villa are very thin and we could hear our German neighbours all night long! So perhaps think about the other guests when you stay ;)
Overall, we enjoyed our stay. We didn't find the area very stimulating so probably won't return but if it is your cup of tea, then we can recommend the villa canaria.
