You haven't provided enough details to make a decision.
Are you in the USA? This answer is based on US employment law:
If so, is it an independent contractor contract or an employee contract?
If it is an independent contractor position, your housing and food costs will be at tax deduction, if you work less than 1 year for the same client. You would have no problem claiming housing & food costs in 2019. For 2020 you wouldn't be able to plan for these to be expenses because the contract term would put you over the 1 year limit. However if the contract ends prematurely (before Oct) the expenses would be a tax deduction.
If you are an IC, you would not be receive accrued time off, holiday pay, or overtime (if it's a non-exempt role).
If it's an employee position and you live in a state/regional area with a sick leave requirement, they would be required to allow you to accrue this time too. Vacation/personal/non-sick time off is not mandated in any region in the US.
Does the position pay more than a permanent position where time off would be covered due to the higher wages?
Note: to people who say that IC positions cannot provide benefits to ICs that is not accurate. That is incorrect. It is rare, but it it can be offered. It dates back to pre ACA when individuals may have had difficulties purchasing coverage. One of my clients offers health benefits to about 500 ICs.
