Five Two-Bedroom Apartments for $1,900 or Less per Month

Featuring three units with three-season porches.


Apartment hunting in Boston is overwhelming for a whole slew of reasons—heavy competition, pricing, and spiraling out of control on Craigslist are just a few of them. So, for your convenience, we’re highlighting a few Zumper listings with one unique characteristic. This round, it’s places asking $1,900 or less per month—because who has thousands to drop on a rental, anyway?

Below, peruse five two-bedroom apartments for rent in Boston for $1,900 or less per month.

1. Washington Street #9, Dorchester
Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $1,750 per month

For those looking to inject some hygge—the Danish concept of coziness—into their lives this season, this neutral-toned apartment offers the perfect palette for Scandinavian design. All white walls and light wood floors play up the sunlight that fills the space. Cats are also invited to make this bright unit feel like home.

2. Aspinwall Avenue and Netherlands Road #1B, Brookline
Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $1,900 per month

An exposed brick wall greets tenants as soon as they enter this basement apartment, while bright overhead lighting prevents the room from appearing too dark. Hardwood flooring leads up to the kitchen, which opens to an enclosed patio. Situated in Brookline Village, this subterranean suite is midway between Longwood and Mission Hill, granting easy access to all parts of the city.

3. Kenneth Street, West Roxbury
Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $1,800 per month

This no-fee apartment welcomes owners and their pets to enjoy the unit’s shared backyard, outfitted with a patio and built-in fire pit. When snow prohibits bonfires, head inside to the private three-season porch, which floods with light at high noon. Other notable architectural features include dormer windows with Tudor-style diamond panes, and two large kitchen window nooks that create the illusion of an open-concept layout.

4. Holts Avenue #2, Somerville
Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $1,850 per month

Two blocks from Inman Square, this freshly painted unit is conveniently located near a bevy of cafes. Inside, beige walls warm up the unit, with a two-tone color scheme in the spacious kitchen. Though both bedrooms are generously sized, roommates can flip a coin for who scores the one with a walk-in closet.

5. 5 Coniston Road #2, Roslindale
Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $1,900 per month

Gleaming hardwoods cover this second-floor pad, which boasts a decorative brick fireplace in the den and a built-in china cabinet in the dining room. The place also offers an enclosed three-season porch and access to a communal yard. The apartment is close to neighboring West Roxbury, and not far from the Commuter Rail.
