    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. Its free and easy to use.

    You can start the Macs FTP service through

     > System Preferences > Sharing > Services

    Make sure your passwords are pretty good though
