In Fremont just off Aurora, this 234-square-foot efficiency studio, renting for $1,045 per month, has a module that can be a Murphy bed, a desk, or a flat wall depending on your needs. The kitchen has a cooktop and a full-size refrigerator, and the bathroom has a walk-in shower. One cat can come, but will cost you $35 a month in pet rent.
