Swiss family looking for a home in Howick, Auckland

We are a Swiss-NZ family who live in Basel, Switzerland and are planning to visit my wife's parents from July 2020 until January 2021. During this time I have been invited to work at the Department of Statistics at the Univsersity of Auckland. We are looking for a furnished house in Howick, near my wife's family. Our children aged (16, 13 and 11) will attend the local schools. We would be very grateful to find reasonably priced accommodation: the offers on airBnB etc. are exorbitant.

I am a professor of mathematics at the FHNW, a technical university in Switzerland. My wife comes from New Zealand, so any sabbaticals tend to get spent there. We are currently looking for a furnished house close to her parents in Howick, Auckland, for six months from July 2020 until January 2021.
