    Put site under maintenance but allow my IP to access

    So during a maintenance, here's what I would have in my .htaccess file:
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/maintenance\.php$
    RewriteCond %{REMOTE_HOST} !^888\.888\.888\.888
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ maintenance.php [L]
    Don't mind the 8's, that's where my IP would go.

    So the site goes into maintenance perfectly, but I can't access it either.

    I've searched around Google for answers, but it seems to work fine for everyone else.

    For the RewriteCond, I don't know whether I should be using REMOTE_HOST or REMOTE_ADDR, but I've tried them both and they both don't work.

    Can anyone help me to allow my IP to access my site during a maintenance?

    RewriteCond %{REMOTE_ADDR} !^888\.888\.888\.888$
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ maintenance.php [R=503,L]
