However, I do have offsite backup of select data by way of Dropbox (paid account with PackRat) and SkyDrive.
Mind you, longest uptime for my unRAID server is 2 years and only reason it was shut down was because there was a black-out (it's on UPS so clean shut down). I'm going on the assumption that I'll be able to visit the vacation home at least once a year to take care of problems. That said, the server would have at least 2 empty drives as "warm" spare for remote array rebuilds.
What I meant is... how do you service your remote server in case it fails? If you don't access it again until you vacation again, then it's worth is lowered since it defeats the point it doesn't always work.

CrashPlan.... I'm backing up a 4TB Windows Server 2012 right now.
It's going to take about 5 weeks but that's ok. I was thinking about uping my ISP package for a month to speed things up.
