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 that are furnished—because who wants to lug their belongings all around the city on moving day?

Below, peruse five furnished apartments for rent in Boston.

164 Beacon St. #6, Back Bay
Bedrooms: 1
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,950 per month

Pale gray walls, thick crown molding, and a glittering chandelier? Yes, it’s a rental, and yes, it exudes sophistication. A wall of mirrors hides the cabinets in the bathroom, making the long room look even larger. And if walking up the steps to a beautiful brick Back Bay building isn’t the best part of coming home, then stepping out onto the unit’s river-facing balcony definitely is.

17 Garrison St. #3L, Back Bay
Bedrooms: 1
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $3,000 per month

Renting this apartment means living right on the edge of Boston’s most expensive zip code—and the sixth priciest place to buy a home in the U.S. So, dip your toes into the boiling hot market with this fully furnished pad, right across the street from the Prudential. Exposed brick, hardwood floors, and a bay window dress the living room, along with a television, ottoman, and a few comfy couches.

254 Amory St. #2, Jamaica Plain
Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,500 per month

Tack an extra $100 onto your monthly rent and you can move into this JP apartment with just a suitcase of clothes. Previously used as an Airbnb, the Egleston Square digs have been renovated and come equipped with a kitchen table, in-unit washing machine, TV, couch—you name it. Plus, there’s a free parking space, private porch, and shared backyard.

275 Marlborough St., Back Bay
Bedrooms: Studio
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,800 per month

At first glance, you’d never realize this luxe unit is a studio. Dark hardwood floors, bright white walls, and recessed lighting set the stage for the living room, which is centered by a large gas fireplace. Open the double doors on the opposite wall to pull down the Murphy bed, which easily tucks up and out of sight when needed. On top of the streamlined furnishings and high-quality Bosch appliances, central air, built-in speakers, and radiant heat outfit this garden-level apartment. And, thanks to its location, it comes with a personal patio.

189 Beacon St., Back Bay
Bedrooms: Studio
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,600 per month

If you’re relocating on September 1, when this unit is available, you can avoid nearly all the move-in day craziness thanks to this completely furnished home. Down to the fresh linens on the queen-sized bed and the coffee maker and dishes in the cabinets, this place is ready for you to settle right in. Drown out the din of moving day by kicking your feet up and turning on the high-def LCD flat-screen.
