Can you help me pick the best towns in the South that have a lot of rental homes?

I'm thinking:

Outer Banks in NC

Hilton Head?

Thanks for any ideas!

Sevierville/Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg, TN

There's thousands of cabins there. But it's a very touristy town.

Asheville, NC is similar with the amount of vacation rentals.. But not quite so touristy.

I just got back from our yearly trip to the Outer Banks, and it's always a fun trip. We stay in a hotel, but there are plenty of rental homes, most of which rent from Saturday to Saturday.

As for the beaches, it all depends on luck, for the most part. This year we got 3 days of water calm enough you could swim in it and 3 days that were rough enough that the yellow flags were out.

Does it have to be a detached home. We have a Wyndham timeshare and www.extraholidays.com have the same places we stay for weekly rentals. Sometimes I notice that my maintenance cost is more than the weekly rate at some places on that website. I sometimes check on that website before I book with our condo points. Many times nothing is available the week I want to stay. Makes me feel better that I can get the place with my points. It really irritates me to book and then find out I could have had the place for less money just paying outright.
