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 centrally-located studios around Boston; this round, it’s charming places for rent in the North End—because who doesn’t want neighbors like Mike’s Pastry and the Skinny House?

Below, peruse five charming apartments for rent in Boston’s North End.

23 Fleet St. #11, North End
Bedrooms: 1
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,100 per month

In apartments, making small spaces feel larger is the name of the game—and this sub-500-square-foot one-bedroom does a good job of that. With the kitchen propped up on a slightly raised platform, the adjoining living room manages to maintain a feeling of division despite its open-concept layout. Its top-floor location doesn’t hurt either, letting natural light stream in through the windows and bounce off the white ceilings and hardwood floors. A coat closet and extra basement storage keep the chaos at bay, and in the summer months, an air conditioner prevents the unit from becoming stuffy. Love the unit so much you want to buy it? It’s also for sale.

161 Endicott St. #4, North End
Bedrooms: 3
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,600 per month

Split rent with a couple of friends and you’ll get away with well under $900 per month to live in this apartment, which is available now. But don’t worry about reasonable rent translating to dingy premises—hardwood floors run through the bedrooms, clean white appliances suit the kitchen, and a combo of green tiling and a cotton candy pink tub and sink give the bathroom a personality of its own.

25 Harris St. #2, North End
Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,800 per month

One block from the waterfront and still less than a ten minute walk to Haymarket, this renovated two-bedroom is in a sweet spot. Inside, the cat-friendly rooms sport exposed and whitewashed brick, and the kitchen comes with stainless steel appliances and a two-seat breakfast bar. Claim your place in this professionally managed building and settle in on November 15.

438 Hanover St. #3B, North End
Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $3,345 per month

Planning a housing change for the new year? This chic unit is likely to tick all of your boxes: lots of windows, a separate dining and living room, a modern kitchen, and it even allows cats and dogs. And the benefits of living on Hanover tout themselves—late night pastries, early morning espressos, and last-minute restaurant reservations, here we come.

23 Moon St. #4, North End
Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,895 per month

Ready for a mid-January move-in, this Moon Street apartment is great for the homebody. A big kitchen provides plenty of room for wintertime cooking and baking, warming up the open living room in the process, and the bedrooms are small but comfortable coops to retire to at the end of a workday. And of course, the pet-friendly unit welcomes cats and dogs to get in on the cozy quarters.
