Where should I spend a few months abroad?

I'm a freelance web designer in New York State hoping to move abroad for 2-3 months early next year. I'm very interested in going somewhere warm, cheap, and accessible. A few more details inside...

I'm apartment-less starting in January, and decided this would be a good time to do something new.
I was hoping to spend on the lower end of $400-800 per month with basic utilities and Internet, somewhere warm and easily accessible abroad.
The current top candidate is Malta, but it seems that if I spend less than six months there most rentals consider it a "short let" and the rent costs almost double. It's still in my range, but I thought I'd get some other ideas as well.
The "2-3 month" requirement is mainly based around the Schengen Agreement restrictions. It's not really hard and fast (except when it comes to Schengen zone countries, of course).
I am pretty open-minded, but I'm particularly interested in the Mediterranean.
