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 outfitted with air conditioning—because the summer months in Boston can get hot.

Below, peruse five apartments for rent in Boston with central air conditioning.

105 Gerry Road #2-A, Brookline
Bedrooms: 1
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,600 per month

Not only is this unit air conditioned, it is also cat and car friendly—Whiskers can roam around the room freely, and for an extra $30 per month, you can park your car on the premises. The building offers access to a fitness and business center, and because there are no T stops in quick walking distance, the management runs a shuttle to Reservoir, so that tenants can board the Green Line with ease.

Hubbard Ave. and Walden St., Cambridge
Bedrooms: 3
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $3,100 per month

Hardwood floors, modern appliances, and louvered closet doors furnish this three-bedroom abode. Less than half a mile from Porter Square, these digs are ideally situated for a Red Line commute, or for bopping between the bars and shops in Harvard and Davis squares. Laundry is in the building’s basement, and one off-street parking spot is included in rent.

Third St. and Charles St. #724, Cambridge
Bedrooms: 3
Bathrooms: 2
Rent: $5,853 per month

Rent this room and walk to the Kendall Square Cinema, Museum of Science, Cambridgeside Galleria, and plenty of coffee shops in 10 minutes, give or take. If you want to go anywhere else, the Green Line and plenty of buses can take you where you need to go from Lechmere, which is a third of a mile away. The building’s swimming pool and fitness center present a couple of good reasons to relocate, too.

44 Saint Paul St., Brookline
Bedrooms: 4
Bathrooms: 2
Rent: $4,500 per month

Just outside of Coolidge Corner, this feline-friendly unit is available to rent for September 1. Recently renovated, the space now boasts granite counters, stainless steel appliances, bright white Shaker cabinets. Two balconies provide some outdoor nooks to catch some vitamin D, while an air conditioned interior offers the relief you’ll want after hanging out in the sun.

129 Sutherland Road #1A, Brighton
Bedrooms: 5
Bathrooms: 4
Rent: $6,400 per month

This pleasantly cool duplex has it all: skylights, recessed lighting, exposed brick that’s been painted a chic shade of gray. The totally updated white and gray interior hardly matches the adorable beige and red exterior, but the contrast only adds to the home’s charm. Available September 1, these 2,000 square feet of living spaces are located one block away from the Green Line at Sutherland.

Note: Although Zumper’s apartment inventory is updated in real time, these listings are not guaranteed to be available. Check in with a listing’s leasing office to confirm availability and to schedule tours.
