I stayed at Bogovic Apartments (located at Rajka Stipe 26, Porec 52440, Croatia) for a week. First of all - I am sorry to say but the host is unfriendly. I felt insignificant, unwelcome and policed. Don't be surprised if any request that will require any effort (how ever small) from the host, results in a door shut right in your face - it literally happened to me, and could happened to you.
Furthermore, the place is overpriced. No AC, so you will be sweating constantly, even during the sleep. Appliances are bad, the TV is a joke, the cutlery and such are incomplete at best, no freezer, pool is out of service. Towels are small and few, and "you are not allowed to take them to the beach, because grandma does not allow it". Apartment key is an issue, since you get only one, regardless how many you are.
Also, the yard entrance key is supposed to be accessible from the outside of the yard. If the keys are not where you expect them, because someone else misplaced them, you will be stranded outside, and then subjected to a lengthy discussion regarding where the keys are (duh!), before you are granted access - true story, happened to me one morning 05.00 am.
If you go to Porec, make your self a favor and stay elsewhere.
