We consider a homoclinic orbit to a saddle fixed point of an arbitrary $ C^\infty $ map $ f $ on $ \mathbb{R}^2 $ and study the phenomenon that $ f $ has an infinite family of asymptotically stable, single-round periodic solutions. From classical theory this requires $ f $ to have a homoclinic tangency. We show it is also necessary for $ f $ to satisfy a 'global resonance' condition and for the eigenvalues associated with the fixed point, $ \lambda $ and $ \sigma $, to satisfy $ |\lambda \sigma| = 1 $. The phenomenon is codimension-three in the case $ \lambda \sigma = -1 $, but codimension-four in the case $ \lambda \sigma = 1 $ because here the coefficients of the leading-order resonance terms associated with $ f $ at the fixed point must add to zero. We also identify conditions sufficient for the phenomenon to occur, illustrate the results for an abstract family of maps, and show numerically computed basins of attraction.
