"Does the apartment is still available to rent?"

You cannot use "do" as a question word with "is". "Do" means to act. The word "do" is used in questions to ask whether the action is being performed or not. While "is" is a verb, it does not describe an action.
To form a question with "is", start with the statement:
The apartment is still available to rent.
Now instead of adding "does" as a question word, move "is" to the beginning:
Is the apartment still available to rent?
