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. Last time, we looked at adorable apartments around Davis Square; this round, it’s places for rent in Watertown—because the Brighton and Cambridge neighbor is a convenient place to live, with plenty of affordable living options.

Below, peruse five two- and three-bedroom apartments for rent in Watertown.

59 Hovey St., Watertown
Bedrooms: 3
Bathrooms: 2
Rent: $3,200 per month

Skylights, a long sunroom, in-unit laundry—what’s not to love about this Watertown rental? Cook up breakfast in the sunny, U-shaped kitchen, which has a brick-hued subway-tiled backsplash. Then bring the morning feast out onto the deck or into the dining room, and afterwards retire into one of the home’s big bedrooms. Rest assured that the bathrooms, laundry nook, and every other area are in pristine condition.

307 Waverley Ave., Watertown
Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,400 per month

Occupying the first floor of a two-family home, this unit features a snazzy kitchen with under-cabinet lighting, illuminated overhead cabinetry, and black and white tiled flooring. The stainless refrigerator stands in the adjoining pantry area, opposite an extra swath of counter space. A private front and back porch and a shared backyard round out this sweet two-bedroom.

60 Howard St. #312, Watertown
Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 2
Rent: $3,975 per month

Not only is this grayscale apartment pet-friendly, it’s incredibly sleek. All-stainless appliances and glossy, handleless cabinets wrap around a corner of the kitchen, while a staircase with a metal banister leads upstairs. Recessed lighting, lofty ceilings, and in-unit laundry seal the deal for this sophisticated space, available now.

384 School St. #1, Watertown
Bedrooms: 3
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,800 per month

Ready to rent starting December 1, this second-floor apartment feels incredibly spacious. Glossy hardwood flows through the living area, punctuated by a working brick fireplace and large windows. The kitchen is huge, too, with dozens of wooden cabinets and drawers, and extra-long counters. And even with all that room, if rent were to be split evenly between three roommates, it would only cost $933 per month per person.

Harnden Ave. #2, Watertown
Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,100 per month

This two-bedroom apartment is full of pleasant quirks, from an ornate medallion beneath a ceiling fan, to a built-in wardrobe, to a lantern-like light fixture. The cat- and dog-friendly quarters also contain an in-home office, while outside there’s a covered deck, shared two-car garage, and small yard.

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.
