          My boyfriend is moving from Uruguay to Washington DC for business for two month and he is looking for a room, studio or one bedroom apartment for short-term rental from May 13 to July 10. Could you please inform me if you have any furnished apartment available for those dates? I would be also grateful if you could send me information about the rates for those apartments and the taxes I should add to the final rate.
