Solo mother of 4 kids desperately seeking a suitable rental

Rochelle from Raumati Beach

I’m still looking, I’m trying tirelessly but there’s just so many people going for the same houses...I feel like I don’t have a chance especially with the landlords high expectations!
I’m so upset that this is the 4th house in 5 years that I have trusted my landlord when they said I have nothing to worry about and then they unexpectedly sold my home...it’s unfair but I just want to have my kids settled in a long term home - I feel so terrible that I’m dragging my poor kids through another move and I can’t even tell them where we are going to live when they ask....it’s heart breaking.

Please if anyone has a warm long term rental property of 4 bedrooms or more I would be forever grateful!! I am hoping to stay in the Waikanae, Paraparaumu, Raumati area due to my support system and work - on top of that my kids are settled at school and my teenager is in the middle of a building course.
My kids are 3, 5, 8 and 16.

I have great references from landlords, employers, church, friends and family.
I am honest and trust worthy and always pay my rent and water.
I am house proud so like to keep it tidy.
I am on the solo mums benefit and work part time as an ECE relief teacher.
Thank you for your time. 🙂 🙏
