Large 150 year old colonial style house with gardens and seaviews - looking for interesting exchanges with character

We live on a small island off the south coast of England, the Isle of Wight. Our home is a detached 150 year old house in its own secluded grounds totaling about 2 acres, with balcony and verandah overlooking the sea and botanic gardens, reminiscent of colonial houses "Out of Africa" or in Indian Hill Stations. To date, we have had ten happy house exchanges in Great Britain, across Europe as well as a longterm exchange in USA.

Our house is less than 15 minutes walk to the beach and coastal paths, and only five minutes from the Botanic Gardens. The house has a lounge with working fire place, a family room (also with working fire place and 42 inch smart internet TV - and a third reception room/sixth bed room with adjacent toilet/shower room, large kitchen with double oven, microwave, slimline dish washer, washing machine and dryer on the ground floor and 5 bedrooms (one with an en suite shower room and one with a balcony with sea views), and a bath room on the first floor. The smallest bedroom is only suitable for a young child. Both of the children's bed rooms have beds, one a bunkbed. We have 2 cats who require minimal care; they are outside a lot enjoying the garden though come indoors and snug up downstairs at night and we also have 1 gold fish.
