As a longtime resident of Sammamish, let me welcome you. We are big fans of the area and work with folks coming to the area for the first time on a regular basis. We have great schools, parks and lots of other recreation opportunities close by.
Rentals are always on the market. I did a quick search of the current offerings and have included a link to them below. As I write this there are 22 available from $1390 per month on the low side to $5000 on the upper. Most 3-4 bedroom single family homes will be between $1800 to $3000 depending on size, location, updates etc.
If you need some help, don't hesitate to contact us. We love to help.
My office is in Sammamish so I'm very familiar with the area. The Sammamish rental market has gotten very tight over the past year. It seems people are electing to rent rather than buy so vacancy is low and rents have gone up.
I've also had several relocation clients who are homeowners in other states, but have become landlords, and then tenants when they relocate.
Right now, I'm seeing 5 active "for rent" home listings in Sammamish with 3+ bedroom and 2+ bathrooms for rent at $2,500 or under. I would be happy to email you listings if you would like to get an idea of what to expect when you get here.

I have sold Sammamish, also known as the Plateau, for over 20 amazing years. For $2500 / month, or a little less, you can find the type of home you are describing. It is definitely an "Owner's market" here and good rentals are going very quickly.
Trulia does not have all the rental properties, because only some agents and only some companies dowload data to them. A lot of rental properties are just advertised on Craig's list. There are a decent number listed in the Northwest MLS and I would be happy to set up a search for you, so you can become very familiar with what is available.
Sammamish has a small percentage of rental homes because it is mainly a demographic of a high percentage of home ownership. I have a great website with links to information about all the cities in the Seattle Area, http://www.karenmcknight.com . Click on the About The Area link. You can also set up your own search at http://buyandsellseattlerealestate.com , or I can set up one for your through the Northwest MLS.
Good luck in your search.

I happen to be an agent in the Issaquah/Sammamish area and rents in the area are typically going to run you around 1 dollar per square foot. There are some areas that may be a little more expensive and some a little less. Let me know if you would like me to send you a few so you can get a feel for what you can get for your money.
