You need to look at TradeMe, see what is around that area and available for your budget. When we first arrived we rented an apartment so at least we had something and then looked at rentals once we were there.
Good luck

Sea Vista apartments in Browns Bay - short walk into Browns Bay if you only have one car, buses from there to wherever, handy for the 30min commute up to Warkworth. We stayed there for 3 weeks on arrival (hmm but that was nearly 8 years ago!).

There's Warkworth Lodge you could try. Loads of places to stay if you Google it. Matakana is a lovely village which is 10 mins up the road by car. Has a wee cinema, a good pub, various eateries, shops and a lovely feel to the place. I'd move there if it was practical for the OH's job.

Email or phone TradeMe customer services. They can allow you temporary read-only access so you can get the details of agents/landlords on property rental ads so you can at least communicate with them. It won't allow you to trade (buy or sell). They've done it for potential migrants in the past but you need to specifically request.
