Rijeka accomodation

I am planning a one week trip to Croatia (arriving in Rijeka) on August 17 with the goal to explore as much as possible during that one week. Therefore I am looking for suggestions for accommodation (rental or hotel) for a family of 4 (2 kids) in order to be able to see as much as possible and still being able to enjoy some beach (sandy?) fun in Croatia for the kids. I am planning to rent a car so driving is not an issue. Any suggestion on a good rental place for some 450 EUR max? Thanks in advance.

Settle in Klimno or Čižići on the island Krk. Good starting point for excursions and nice beach.

Čižići is pretty far from Rijeka and not sure what would you be exploring. Going to Krk as a field trip is certainly recommended, but only base there if swimming/sunbathing is what you're looking for. Btw, there are not many sand beaches in Croatia, but you can still enjoy. There is actaully one very small, but absolutely beautiful beach near hotel Jadran in Rijeka. Most residents go to Mošćenička Draga which is the most popular beach (about a half hour drive).

But in Rijeka, do visit the Trsat castle, the city centre, the port and the great green/fish market (just be there early!). Also, visit the small fishing village of Volosko, walk down the Lungomare coastal path to Opatija, see the incredible parks, the promenade, perhaps catch some movie or a concert in Ljetna pozornica open-air theatre and even climb Mt. Učka for some incredible views of entire Istria and Kvarner Bay (very short distance from Rijeka by car).

You can see some things in my MTB Street view movies from the area. Many are available, so search my channel, but start with: Rijeka (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L7VTsHBfvYs), Opatija (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FXKdKyvQbQE), Mt. Učka (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KOJ1ZPCJ_SY) and Krk (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=saKWuK9p7qQ). You can even see a bit of Čižići in this one - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tR0FqhUzrqo (at the end).
