IslandParadiseFilter: Help me find a dream island getaway vacation spot.

For quite a few years now, I've fantasized about visiting some 'island getaway', living in a bungalow on the beach for a month. Not really doing much more than swimming, laying around, eating seafood and working on some personal projects. I've become a bit spoiled by the creature comforts of civilzation, and am not at all interested in 'roughing it' a la The Beach.
So I guess my requirements would be:
* sandy beaches
* warm water
* decent internet connection - i'm not looking to download movies, but i'd like to be able to be online for an hour or two/day
* wildlife on the island would be nice, I'm keen on photographing birds and all sorts of wildlife
I know this won't be cheap - I'm looking to spend $6-12k, so I guess that would be my price range. I'd prefer not to go to Hawaii - Poland is not on the USA's visa voucher program, and it's pretty much clear on the other end of the world.
Pretty much, I want to rest and relax, not party or go crazy. Some activites would be nice (always wanted to try parasailing) but it won't be a deal breaker - peace and quiet are.
