You can set up your Mac as an FTP server - provided it is on the internet and powered up while you are away.
But that gives you full access to your user account - if anybody does guess your username and password that might be too much sharing
I use PureFTPd Manager to set up users with access to specific folders in my user account and nothing else.

You can start the Macs FTP service through
> System Preferences > Sharing > Services
Make sure your passwords are pretty good though
