Hi everyone! My family and I are relocating to Virginia, from New Hampshire. I'm not all that familiar with all the different areas, but I do know that we would like to be in the Williamsburg area or within an hour traveling time. We have a rather large family... 6 kids, 3 dogs, a ferret & a guinea pig! I'm a stay at home mom (kinda have to be with the hectic schedule that we can have with 6 kids & activities/school & my husband is a software engineer). We are looking to rent at least a four bedroom home & our price ranges up to 1500/mo. It's kinda scary when I have a bit of a blind feeling in looking at different web-sites & Craigslist, not being able to physically go check out different listings so I'm reaching out to those of you that live in the area for advice & information. We are very family orientated, neat/clean, organized, busy family & I'm hoping to find a home that is in a nice, safe, clean area. 2 of our dogs are Jack Russell Terriers, & the third is a small/med mix breed... they are all very well mannered & trained while being inside the house & the other two pets live in cages. My children's ages are 7, 10, 11, 12, 13, 13... so well above the age of coloring on walls (haha). I do have a brother who lives in Williamsburg, but he has a busy & demanding schedule, with having two boys as well as battling leukemia... we would like to move as soon as June 19th so that I can be close to him to help out.... I hope that someone can help or point me in some right directions! I thank you all for reading this & for whatever information you can give to me in advance! THANK YOU THANK YOU!!

I recommend that you post this in the Virginia - Hampton Roads forum. You will get a much better response since Williamsburg is in the Hampton Roads area.

I just did a quick search in the MLS in Williamsburg, James City Co, York Co and Newport News and looked for 5 bedroom houses under $1500 and didn't find any. I did find 7 four bedroom homes w/ over 2000 square feet. Six of them allow pets for an additional deposit/fee, but I think having 3 dogs might be a chalenge, though.
