I did a google search for 'come around to you' , 'come around to yours', 'come around to your place'. The results do not seem satisfactory. Do you say 'come around to you (me)'? Is this phrasing correct?

The phrasing 'come around to your place' sounds somewhat unnarural or very formal. I can't imagine that someone could say something like that in infomal conversation.

Some examples:

I remember your invitation last week. I'll come around to yours for supper today.

:

Longman dictinaries come around:to come to someone's home or the place where they work in order to visit them

In the U.K., I hear "Come round to my place." much more than "Come around...", but both are used.

Also used are: "Come round to mine", "I'm going round to the neighbour's." etc. "Come over" is also used as in: "Put the kettle on, I'm coming over to your place."

"Come around" appears more commonly with two other meanings:

  • To wake from unconsciousness.
  • To move from an opposing or undecided position to one of agreement. e.g. "Having been against the idea, John came around to Tim's point of view."
